Summary

  • Black Adam’s Aldis Hodge is open to playing John Stewart’s Green Lantern in the new DC Universe, an opportunity that may arise since there’s been no word on his possible return as Hawkman.
  • Hodge has voiced John Stewart in DC’s animated Tomorrowverse and playing the character in live-action has been a dream of his.
  • Lanterns, the upcoming DCU show, will focus on Hal Jordan and John Stewart’s characters and will play a major role in the larger story of the DCU.

Black Adam star Aldis Hodge is open to playing the John Stewart version of Green Lantern in the new DC Universe. Hodge previously portrayed Hawkman in Black Adam, but it remains uncertain whether he will reprise his role in the DC Extended Universe. However, this potential absence opens up the opportunity for him to portray Green Lantern in the DCU.

In an interview with Comicbook.com, Hodge expressed his excitement at the prospect of playing John Stewart’s Green Lantern in the DCU. Stewart is confirmed as one of the canon characters in the new DCU and will share the spotlight with Hal Jordan in the Lanterns series on Max. Hodge, who has already lent his voice to the character in DC’s animated Tomorrowverse, has long harbored the desire to portray Stewart in live-action. He stated, “That was one of my dreams growing up was to be John Stewart in live-action.” Here is the full quote:

“I mean, look, I’m open for whatever. I would love to continue the legacy of Hawkman because we had some amazing plans for him. But also, to portray John Stewart in live action. I have been the voice of John Stewart in the animated space for a few years now, thanks to the incredible Phil LaMarr who passed the baton. Shout out to Phil, as I am a big fan of his work. But if there was a film adaptation, absolutely. It was one of my childhood dreams to be John Stewart in live-action. So yeah.”

Casting Both Green Lanterns For DC’s Reboot TV Show – A Lanterns show is finally coming to HBO Max starring Hal Jordan and John Stewart as a major chapter in the DCU, but who will play them?

What We Know About John Stewart In The DCU

No actor has been cast as John Stewart or Hal Jordan yet in Lanterns. The only Green Lantern that has been cast in the DCU is Guy Gardner, to be played by Nathan Fillion in James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy, before possibly joining John and Hal in Lanterns.

However, Guy was not mentioned during Gunn’s announcement of Lanterns, although he did tease the appearance of other Green Lanterns. The upcoming DCU show is expected to focus on Hal Jordan and John Stewart, who will have crucial roles in the overall story of the DCU. According to Gunn, Lanterns will see Hal and John uncover a terrifying mystery on Earth that connects to the larger DCU story.

The rumored candidates for the showrunner position of Lanterns are Damon Lindelof from Watchmen and Chris Mundy from Ozark. No official announcement has been made by DC regarding the showrunner, and casting for John Stewart and Hal Jordan will have to wait until the completion of the series’ scripts, as per Gunn’s clarification for all projects. With the role still open, Hodge could leave behind his portrayal of Hawkman in the DCEU and embody the John Stewart version of Green Lantern in the DCU, capitalizing on his voice acting experience as the character.

Lanterns: Lanterns is a detective show based on DC Comics’ Green Lanterns. Originally centered around Alan Scott, Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, and Simon Baz, the project was redesigned by James Gunn to focus on Hal Jordan and John Stewart in the new interconnected DC Universe franchise.
