When it comes to superhero films, directors have select people in mind for certain roles. Due to various variables, they either land their perfect actor or look elsewhere. One upcoming film almost had one former rapper as a beloved DC Comics character.

In Brightest Day

Charles Roven, who has produced a handful of DC Comics films, wanted Mark Wahlberg to play Green Lantern. Film columnist, Mario-Francisco Robles, made the statement over on Twitter. “If Roven had his way, Marky Mark would’ve recited the oath. But his days of influence in the DCEU are over, so that isn’t an option anymore,” he said.

Roven originally started as the sole producer for the entire DC Extended Universe. Recently, he stepped away to allow others to produce future movies. “It became very clear that in order to be a producer on those movies in the timeline that Warner Bros. wanted, it was way too big a job for one producer to oversee,” he told Deadline.

In Blackest Night

Rumors of Wahlberg being part of the DCEU exploded because of an Instagram post. The actor is seen standing on a desk while thanking Lebron James for going to the Lakers. On the desk, fans can see a line of photos of cast members from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

No Evil Shall Escape My Sight

In 2020, Green Lantern will debut in the DCEU with Green Lantern Corps. Geoff Johns, who wrote several Green Lantern stories for DC Comics, will write the film’s script.

There’s no word on who will take the role of Green Lantern. Outside of Wahlberg, Tom Cruise has been heavily rumored to portray the character. More information on the film will be released in due time.
