Will Smith, Idris Elba, or Jamie Foxx for John Stewart . . .
Make him a military dude who just doesn't give a damn . . . also make Green Lantern a Star Wars + Wolverine Orgins type franchise where there are lots of different heroes
Guaranteed money . . . plus we see more Black Superheroes in hollywood . . . Static Shock is long overdue but that isn't coming anytime soon since he has no relation to the JLA
I was reading up on what happened to the Static property and apparently it was relaunched a few years ago with some DC writers (who never saw the show or read the OG comics) making a lot of unnecessary changes, and running off the OG Milestone writer it was cancelled due to poor sales, so smh it's not gaining any new fans
Would hate for it to be done . . . The cartoon was the first black superhero I saw and it was cool to see him put in the same echelon as Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, etc. (in the cartoon)
Anyways Bryan Cranston should have been Hugo Strange
