Last week Tyrese Gibson launched an insane social media campaign, rallying fans around the idea that he’d be awesome as Green Lantern in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Justice League movie. Green Lantern is the only major role that still needs an actor, and Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and The Flash are all getting Batman v Superman cameos. I covered the start of Tyrese’s social media posts, but since then there have been dozens more. Just scroll through his latest Instagram photos to check them out. The crazy part is… it may have actually worked!
Just minutes ago Tyrese posted a photo at the Warner Bros. lot with the caption “I don’t talk….. I move….. #WB #GreenLanternMission”:
Tyrese certainly isn’t the first actor to use his large social media following as a way to get a meeting with a large movie studio. But this is definitely an interesting story that I’ll be following closely. When there’s more report about the unfilled Green Lantern Justice League role, you’ll hear it here on Batman News!
