Angela Bassett Joins Green Lantern Cast

Angela Bassett is joining the cast of director Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern, which is currently shooting in New Orleans.

In the Warner Bros. release, Bassett will play Dr. Amanda Waller, a government agent who’s a staple of the DC Comics series. There’s a good chance that she’s being introduced to set-up the proposed Suicide Squad movie announced last year.

She’s joining a cast that includes Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins, Mark Strong, Taika Waititi and Temuera Morrison.

Green Lantern is scheduled for a June 17, 2011 release.
