  [xyz-ihs snippet="whitetexthalfbannerforcontent"] World on the street (ok, several entertainment/movie/comics news sources) are reporting that the negotiations to have actor-supreme Denzel Washington portray a Green Lantern in the upcoming Superman/Batman "Man of Steel" sequel is for real.  Why is this a big deal?  Denzel Washington is a major Hollywood presence, and bringing him on board in any capacity will bring instant gravitas to this project.  As the astute reader may recall, news that Ben Affleck will play Batman in this movie met with a  huge amount of negative energy from many fans.  It also makes sense in a way, since Affleck was purposely chosen to play an "older" Batman/Bruce Wayne character.  Denzel is older still, and the possibilities are interesting. For those of you not overly familiar with the various Green Lanterns, most human Green Lanterns are Caucasian, but there is one African-American Green Lantern named John Stewart.  We would assume that Denzel would play the John Stewart character.
