On Wednesday, Tyrese posted a pic of the iconic character on Instagram, with the caption, "Shit just got real - #doubleoath #doubletrouble #GreenLantern #WB." Many have been speculating that Warner Bros.' reboot in the Green Lantern franchise will feature two different members of the Green Lantern Corps, and that Tyrese could be playing one of them.
ET caught up with Tyrese at a listening party for his new album Black Rose at Samsung Studio L.A. on Wednesday night, where the 36-year-old Fast and Furious star addressed the casting rumors.
"There are certain things I can't speak on," Tyrese said, cautiously. "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'm coming into this thing with some fans and some box office receipts behind my name and I say that proudly and humbly," Tyrese said. "I just think I deserve a shot at suiting up and becoming the Green Lantern."
While he didn't explicitly confirm the news, it sounds like there’s definitely a real possibility that he may be "suiting up" in the near future.
