Ice Cube Would Be A Wonderful Green Lantern, Says The Filmmaker Kevin Smith

If you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it.

Now that Ryan Reynolds has changed his magic ring to an extensive arsenal of firearms, knives, and bad words, leaping from his role in DC's 2011 flop Green Lantern for Marvel 2016 hit Deadpool, the role of the inter-galactic protector to be seen.

The sellers of the filmmaker and occasional comic book writer Kevin Smith retweeted some fan art of Ice Cube in the role, saying that he loved the idea, and reference is made to a line, the rapper turned actor offers in John Singleton's 1991 classic Boyz N The Hood.

LOVE! It would be amazing! "They don't know, don't show up, or don't care about what is going on in Sector 2814." https://t.co/T7xerg7cbe— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) May 4, 2016DC and Warner Bros have announced a reboot of the franchise which will be released in the year 2020. Your previous attempt was considered a financial failure and was destroyed by critics, achieving a score of 26% on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Previously, the singer and Fast & Furious actor Tyrese Gibson was rumored to be in contention for the upgrade of the function.

John Stewart version of the character was one of DC Comics' first black superheroes, that appear in 1971.

Ice cube has not commented on the idea publicly, but recently told Complex News that, if given the choice, the comic book character that I would like to play is The Incredible Hulk.
