Some say it isn't true...
UPDATE: Batman News is reporting that the story is just a rumor. They state that like other big time actors, Denzel has been linked to talks of playing Lex Luthor, but that there is nothing to the Green Lantern talk. At this time, the latest word is that Green Lantern isn't even going to be in movie.
ORIGINAL: Nuke The Fridge reports that while there were rumors that Denzel Washington would play Lex Luthor in the sequel to Man of Steel, it is now rumored that he will instead play Green Lantern John Stewart.
If this is true, then he would join a cast that already includes Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. The film opens on July 17, 2015. It is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and Laurence Fishburne.
