Denzel Washington is the latest actor up for a role in Batman vs. Superman (or whatever they are going to call it). First the whispers were saying the role was Lex Luthor, now they are saying John Stewart's Green Lantern.
As smart as it is to attempt to wipe the memory of Ryan Reynold's Green Lantern from our minds, does anyone else find it odd to cast another huge aging star (in addition to Ben Affleck), but in a minor role that if continued into his own solo movie would be expensive to keep around? Really, casting a super-famous actor in a comic book movie role reeks of fan-casting in my book.
The real story here though is that Warner Bros. has been leaking misinformation about the movie to find out who is leaking these bits of info to the press. So we really don't know which of all these dozens of rumors already leaking about the movie might be onto something or might be way off base. That's not counting sites that are just pulling concepts out of their asses for hits.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
