They are clearly in the same universe, use some of the same actors, and yet there is no point at which you will be watching one of the movies and feel like you missed something by not watching the show.
Yes and I agree with that, but since in this instance, the show would be first, I pictured something more like the first X-Files movie, which was not very accessible to non-fans.

Well, if there is a way in which WB can screw up a DC movie, I wouldn't lay odds against them finding it, and that WOULD be one such way...

Idris Elba as John Stewart.


The end.

Too old. He's awesome, but not right.

He's younger than the other choices. Not to mention a far better actor.

I don't want any of the choices I've seen. If John ever gets done live action someday (WITH Hal, not replacing him), I want him done RIGHT.

I've got an image of John in my head that Neal Adams and Joe Staton put there years decades ago. I don't want a black guy for the sake of having a black guy there. I'm a big John Stewart fan and don't want just anybody.

I'm in no way saying you just picked "anybody". Elba is a fantastic actor and his charisma takes up the entire screen because of his awesomeness. I just think he's too old and I don't think of John when I think of Elba any more than I do the Rock.

I wish I could go back in time and get a late 20s Denzel Washington though. Goddamn he would've been great.

Michael Jai White. I think he has the perfect voice for John Stewart too.

Yep. He also played a Mob boss in the Dark Knight. He was supposed to be in Kill Bill, but his scenes were cut.

I just looked at his page of credits. This guy was around for a long time. Hell, he was even in two of the toxic Avenger movies?!?

I'd say he looks the part but he's definitely older than what I picture. I want to see John learning about the corps along with the audience in live action. Making him an older veteran takes that away. By that point, Hal will already BE the veteran in films. I think it's be cool for a 30 something Hal working with a 20 something John and seeing what a natural John is at ring slinging.

It would be kind of cool to show a lantern inducted who is not young.

I remember the rumor of Denzel Washington of being John Stewart a couple of months ago. Like Training Day, Denzel could say something like "Superman ain't got shit on me!"

+ YouTube Video

Ehh. Denzel's time would have been 20 years ago.

Elba is ripped. He's fit and you can't really see his age. Plus he can actually act.
