With plenty of rumors abuzz suggesting that other heroes and villains may appear in the upcoming superhero film, the one lingering and interesting theory was that Academy Award Winning actor Denzel Washington would be up for a role in the film, and early reports suggested he'd be an African-American version of Superman's eternal arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor.
That doesn't seem to be the case now however, as a new scoop according to Nuke The Fridge and posted by Screen Rant suggests that Mr. Washington may not play a villain, but rather a hero... And that's Green Lantern John Stewart!
With this rumor in the open, it would be really nice to see John Stewart in the spotlight and him being The Green Lantern for this "Batman Vs Superman" movie with Wonder Woman... WHich may very well turn out to be A Justice League movie after all.
Also on an interesting note... December 28 also happens to be Mr. Washington's Birthday! Happy Birthday, good sir!
The yet untitled "Batman Vs Superman" movie is slated for July 17, 2015.
