Lucifer’s Amenadiel, D B Woodside, has his eye on the role of John Stewart/Green Lantern…
Whilst Warner Bros has cast quite a few of its big screen heroes for the DC cinematic universe already, there’s still a few more to go. And in particular, there are the members of the Green Lantern Corps. The new movie is due in 2020 as things stand, but Green Lantern will be back ahead of that in the pair of Justice League films, the first of which is due at the end of next year.
There’s going to be more than one Green Lantern this time around, but one man with his eye on the role of John Stewart and his Green Lantern is Lucifer co-star D B Woodside, who plays Amenadiel in the show.
Chatting to Comic Book Resources, he said that “the whole series and the characters have always been one of my favourites. I grew up as a comic-book guy, so I love these characters”.
“We’re living in a superhero bubble right now that I am hoping will never burst. And, maybe I was wearing a Green Lantern T-shirt [at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con) because I’m trying to get into the minds over at DC as they are looking for their Green Lantern. ‘open up and take a look at some others out here in Los Angeles.’ That was my cheeky way of trying to influence them”.
We’ve no idea if it’s worked yet, mind. Thus far, Woodside hasn’t auditioned for any Marvel or DC projects just yet, he’s admitted.
