Idris Elba Likes The Idea Of Playing Green Lantern
Idris Elba is a busy man these days. He follows up appearances in Pacific Rim and Thor: The Dark World with what could be a defining role playing Nelson Mandela in Justin Chadwick's Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, which is released in theaters next week. His performances in sci-fi roles have not gone unnoticed, leading to the British actor being linked with a plethora of future productions, one of which is that of John Stewart aka Green Lantern.
Yesterday, a fan of Elba's posted this mock-up of what an Elba Green Lantern might look like and the big man himself is quite impressed! Elba responded to the picture saying "Thank you baby love..i like this idea.."
Whether or not this would ever happen is quite a different thing, though. But it is reassuring to know that such a talented actor is open to more comic book roles. So, who are your favorite comic book characters and which star would you want to play them in a big budget adaptation?
