 That rumor was immediately refuted by WB. I don't think that you need that kind of star power to be Green Lantern anyway? Plus I do agree with overcrowding the Batman/Superman movie wth too many heroes....unless of course the movie isn't going to be a Batman/Superman movie at all and just call it what it is?

 Nah, save the money the money for the FX.

I always thought that Common would make a good John Stewart, if only for a cameo, and its safe to say he's a lot cheaper/easier to get than Denzel.

Denzel Washington is too high profile to be in a two-bit role in a movie like this one. Nothing would thrill me more, on the other hand, to see Washington portray Alex Cross in a movie, but that would mean rebooting that franchise over yet again, something I wouldn't mind since Tyler Perry's version was just a tad bit better than the atrocious Morgan Freeman ones... Denzel as Lex Luthor would be horrific, IMO.  I hope it Lex is going to be played by Cranston or even Phoenix...

The Ryan Reynolds GL screwed up majorly in the choice of villain - throwing Parallax into the first major film was absurd, especially the way Hal Jordan wound up beating him.  The rest of the movie I could have lived with.  I could personally stomach seeing Reynolds again as GL, whether it be a GL sequel or a JL movie...

For Pete's Sake, don't put GL in the Man of Steel sequel - just watched Man of Steel again last night and liked it better than the first time I saw it.  Still not convinced Batman and Wonder Woman need to be in it...

He's a getting bit old and from the looks of things in his last five films his body appears to be wrecked.

 Denzel is awesome, one of my favorite actors, but I seriously couldn't see him playing GL in this movie.  I agree with silversurfer also about the overcrowding of heroes...it never works out well when they overcrowd a movie with villains, and this isn't supposed to be a TEAM movie...but who knows.  I just couldn't see Denzel taking a role that would require him to possibly contract for several more movies.  It just seems like his career is too diverse for that.  Has the man ever done a sequel or revisited a character?  I can't think of any instances where he has...

The real rumor was that he was up against Gal Gadot for Wonder Woman but them racist bastards @ WB didn't like the idea of a black WW.

Plus his tits and ass were too big

Btw Bob I think it's bush league to delete someone's comments

It wasn't Reynolds who was at fault in Green Lantern, that was the script itself.  As for Denzel, what can I say that everybody else hasn't?  Too old, too many heroes, and John Stewart is just a little too obscure, if they go for Green Lantern then they should go for the main one, Jordan.

 GL was a bad script, I don't blame RR 100%. If they add the GL to this series, I hope that It would be a JS version.

If the script is good, I'm all in.
