American actor Tyrese Gibson sent the Internet into a tizzy recently, all thanks to an Instagram post by the Fast and Furious star. On Thursday, he uploaded an image of himself as the John Stewart version of the popular DC superhero, Green Lantern, (played and completely ruined by Ryan Reynolds earlier) and captioned it, ‘It’s Time’. This got DC fans speculating the possibility of the actor bagging the role of Green Lantern.

Actor Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), has been teasing the possibility of a Green Lantern cameo in the upcoming Justice League movie for quite some time now, and this might just confirm that.

If this does really happen, Gibson will join the list of stars from the Fast & Furious franchise who have levelled up to superhero status. Gal Gadot has played Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has been cast as Black Adam, Kurt Russell played Ego, and Vin Diesel voiced Groot in the latest Hollywood event film, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Are you excited about the possibility of Gibson becoming Green Lantern, or do you have anyone else in mind who might be better? Tell us about it in the comments.
