Shemar Moore as Green Lantern (John Stewart) by MZimmer1985 Shemar Moore as Green Lantern (John Stewart) by MZimmer1985
Green Lantern (John Stewart) [Height: 6' 2", Age: 30's-40's]: John Stewart is the third Green Lantern of Earth, formerly a sniper for the U.S. Marines and an architect. His power ring grants him the ability to make energy constructs guided by thought using his willpower. Originally given Green Lantern Corps membership after his predecessor Hal Jordan left the position, he has also shared the planet with his friends and fellow officers Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner. Prior to her death at the hands of Star Sapphire, he was married to the alien Katma Tui.

Shemar Moore [Height: 6'; Age: 44; Notable Works: Birds of Prey (TV series), Criminal Minds, Justice League War]: Shemar Moore is no stranger to comic book roles; he played detective Jesse Reece in the short-lived Birds of Prey TV series, then went on to voice Cyborg in Justice League War. But one well-known character that he could nail on the big-screen would be Green Lantern member John Stewart. The man has rock-solid acting talent judging by his work on the long-running crime drama Criminal Minds (co-stars Thomas Gibson and Matthew Grey Grubler also dabbled in CBM roles). He would truly possess the charisma and talent for John Stewart. Besides, Dwayne Johnson should have the shot to play Shazam villain Black Adam more than John Stewart.

Criminal Minds comes to mind? And he voiced Cyborg too in Justice League War.

I've seen only a few episodes of Criminal Minds, which is where I've seen him. I've also seen Justice League War, and he was great.

He's sexy and all but I think shemar Moore's skin is a bit too light and his lips just a tad too small for this casting. At least on looks anyway. This not a statement about his acting.

He certainly has the facial features and muscular structure to pull this off, I think he's a solid choice. A shocking amount of people have said they want Dwayne Johnson in the role, I don't see it nor do I wish to see it. Nothing against the guy but I can't take him seriously, even in a superhero film.

Dwayne Johnson is a great actor, but he doesn't have strong African-American features despite being African-Canadian/Samoan.

A variety of roles. He first was signed to play Black Adam in a Captain Marvel movie. Who knows, he could still be in the running.

I think Shemar Moore would be great as John Stewart. I've seen both Hal Jordan and John Stewart Green Lanterns in the comics but I've always like John as the Green Lantern because, to me, it seems that he's got a better grasp on how to handle his enemies better than Hal. Shemar Moore is a great actor, I know him from Criminal Minds, and I see him as someone that could play a lot of serious roles. His character in Criminal Minds is a former cop, but to see him as Green Lantern, he would basically be another cop, but for patrolling space. :)

I could very easily see him as a Green Lantern, and honestly if they were to make a movie for John Stewart's Lantern he would be perfect for it. :)

Interesting. Up until now I only though of casting Idris Alba as John Stewart but Moore seems to be a good choice aswell.
