“I think they always wanted Don Cheadle from the very start and it’s nice that they get what they want. They could be a little nicer about it. You don’t make 800 million dollars and then try and shake everyone down. That’s not nice.”The good news for Howard (and his fans), he may not be done with the comic book world. Howard admits he's a comic book fan and perhaps he'll have better luck at DC. On the subject of "Green Lantern," was playing John Stewart a possibility?
“[H]e doesn’t become black until the third [Green Lantern],” said Howard. “I think they’re planning to take those steps. We’ll see, I haven’t felt those out yet.”
Sounds like we could expect three GL movies? Works for me. It doesn't sound like he'd want to play John. He does mention that he'd be interested in Black Lightning.
Do you think a Black Lighting movie would work? Do you like the idea of "Green Lantern" being a trilogy? Who should play John Stewart (if he appears in the GL movies)? Do you think Howard got a bum deal with Marvel?
