John Krasinski has long been a fan favorite choice to play the role of the Green Lantern in the DC Entertainment Universe films.
The 37-year-old actor must have heard the rumors, because when a fan asked him if he had been cast in the role, he responded, “Wait… have I??? That’s awesome! Who do I call? Where do I go?? I need answers Tom!!!!!!”
Fans might be a little more excited about Green Lantern because in the latest trailer for Justice League, the character Steppenwolf can be heard saying, “No protectors here. No Lanterns. No Kryptonian. This world will fall, like all the others.”
This quote is proof that the Green Lantern is in fact part of the DC Entertainment Universe. A Green Lantern film has not been officially confirmed by Warner Bros., but for years, fans have been naming John as a favorite to play the role. Fans have long thought one of the upcoming untitled DC movieswill be about Green Lantern.
