It would be easy to introduce John in Superman/Batman film also. John is a Marine and it seems like the military will be involved as the were in MOS. The Rock excels at playing military or former military/cop types.

Maybe John will be working under General Swanwick?

I'd definitely watch it. Who knows with WB. They do seem to be getting their crap together (at least somewhat) here recently.

I could see Cyborg in YJ though. Although they really have been pushing him in the comics and animated films recently. So they probably do have a bigger vision for the character than for him to just be on TV.

Can't wait 'til we hear who he ends up playing.

Nolanite- That would be awesome to see. You're right. Another reason I think Rock playing Stewart would be great!

And coming soon:

to be fair, half of the characters you listed (Fury, Heimdall, Jones) first appeared as white characters in the comics



(okay, technical Jone's was always attended be black, but, in his first appearances there was a mistake by the colorist of the comic)

It's looking more and more like The Rock will most likely end up being cast as either John Stewart/GL, Cyborg or Lobo.

Don't mean to restart any debates or make myself look like a racist but isn't John Stewart African American?

John Stewart or John Henry Irons would work for me.

Between The Rock as John Stewart, and Denzel as John Stewart rumors/speculation I'm just very happy it appears WB has got wise and is using John Stewart as the GL (at least at first) in the DCCU.

But I don't really see Rock as John, he's too bulky. I think getting him as Black Adam (finally) would be a stroke of genius by WB/DC. To have him as the main baddie in the first JLA movie would really work.

Rock is black enough for John Stewart. He played Roadblock in GI Joe Retaliation, and that wasn't the first time he played a black guy (though I wouldn't suggest Be Cool). Just because Rock is one of a few who can *Also* play other races doesn't mean he can't play a black guy.

Rock is not 'too big' for John Stewart. It's a lot easier to slim down than to bulk up.

Also, Rock, unlike most other John Stewart potentials can actually make a solo GL movie successful just by being in it. Denzel could probably do that too.

I think there are some people out there that prefer The Rock as big as he is.

Either way, I think the Rock would be great as John Stewart. The more I think of him playing GL on the big screen, the more I'm starting to like it. Just got to have an open mind, people.

He is way too big for John, but he's spot on for BA. That's why he will be the black GL here. Warner Brothers have made it their own thing to cast against type.

But do we fans really want John to be nothing more than a strong guy? Because that's exactly what The Rock is, a cool and muscular action dude.
Shouldn't a Green Lantern have more personality than that? The Rock can't give the character any depth.

While I think the Rock being cast as Black Adam would be one of the best castings of all time, I just don't see a SHAZAM movie being made anytime soon. Him being cast as John Stewart would be nothing less than a brilliant move by WB. Not only would he help draw in the general audience to see the Justice League movie but his star power could greenlight a new and hopefully improved Green Lantern movie.

Actually, Laurence Fishburne was my preferred choice to play John Henry Irons, but obviously that's off the table now.

For several reasons. He's not exactly at his physical peak anymore.

Lol, many, I've heard.

Edit: It is always fun to see Rock show up in an action movie and be like "OMG, he's HUUUUUGE!" That is fun.

1) There is no Shazam movie, and thus, no BA role to cast Rock in.

2) Please go review Be Cool, Pain and Gain, Empire State, Planet 51... jeez, this guy has so many comedy and loving father roles I can't imagine someone who knows anything about him thinking he's just a strong action dude with no further personality.

3) Without Rock, there may not be another Green Lantern movie. His star power is such that a supporting/villain role would be a waste.

That depends on the artist/story arc. John is *usually* bigger than the other titular Lanterns, and sometime he's huge, ala Blackest Night/War of the Green Lanterns.

Yeah, let's not pretend that physical size doesn't vary from artist to artist.

Whoever the Rock plays will rise a level on the cool superhero tier.

I think Aquaman most needs to be reinvented for the general audience. Fans often cast geeky actors for Aquaman. It's hard to find an actor that would make talking with fish be cool. But imagine if the Rock plays him, people would love him. He would rise in popularity like Iron Man.

He also somewhat resembles aqualad from young justice, not that it matters.

As I think about it, I think that big golden mane is a bit too crucial for Aquaman. I wouldn't cast Rock as Orin.
