Common as the Green Lantern

Common recently confirmed that he will be playing the comic book hero the Green Lantern in an upcoming film about the Justice League. “It’s a blessing really, to know that I could potentially be this superhero,” he told MTV News. “Justice League itself is an honor, and Green Lantern is an incredible character to play. It’s a blessing to be associated with it.” Unfortunately, filming has yet to begin due to the Writers Guild of America strike, (which actually just ended).

Common will also be in the upcoming movie Street Kings along with Forest Whitaker, The Game, and Keanu Reeves. Street Kings hits theaters on April 11th. You can peep the trailer below
