Columbus Short Turns Down Green Lantern

Smart move or dumb move? Actor Columbus Short tells MTV he turned down the role of Green Lantern in George Miller’s Justice League at Warner Bros., which we assume also includes the Greg Berlanti-directed spin-off Green Lantern:

“‘Justice League’ is going to be dope, it’s going to be huge,” grinned the fast-rising star, before dropping a second bomb: “But it’s not the movie for me.”

That’s right – Columbus Short has not only been considered for “Justice League”, but has already turned the filmmakers (including director George Miller) down cold. In joining the ranks of Biel and who knows how many others, Short said that he ultimately decided the script was too much popcorn for his taste.
