Comic Reel: Denzel Rumored to Be Green Lantern in "Superman/Batman"; "Amazing Spider-Man 2" New Year's Plans


Over the weekend, various sites, including Screenrant, linked to a rumor from Nuke the Fridge concerning the possibility of Denzel Washington taking on the role of Green Lantern John Stewart in the super-sized Man of Steel sequel. Their source claims Washington is being "considered" for the role instead of Lex Luthor as previously reported. While I've always thought John would make an easier transition to live action than Hal, I'm not sure Washington is the best name for the part. Come to think of it, he is pretty much perfect for Lex. But, as always, time will tell if this turns out to be true or just garbled rumors on the internet.
