Meanwhile, the puzzle as to who will play the role of Green Lantern, is still ongoing. Furious 7 actor Tyrese Gibson continue to tease fans about the role by posting photos of him being Green Lantern on Instagram. Recently, Gibson was asked about whether or not he's playing the role, and his answer did not seem to deny nor confirm anything, but still continue to tease.
"There are certain things I can't speak on. But I will say, however this works out, it's definitely the fans' fault. I was at home minding my own business and fans start creating these fan-made videos of me as Green Lantern and I looked into it. I've been a fan of the Green Lantern. I took the oath, and I had a meeting at Warner Bros. and certain things were said and talked about. We'll just see what happens," Gibson said.
When asked about Comic-Con and if he'll make an appearance in the event, the actor said "You never know. I might be there on the other side of an announcement."
Hopefully the announcement about who's set to play Green Lantern will be made soon.
Justice League Part 1 will be directed by Zach Snyder, and will soon hit theaters in November 17, 2017.
