Social media has become the great equalizer, giving everyone a chance to play casting director, and have their voices heard. And The Fate of the Furious star Tyrese Gibson certainly gets that.

As you can see in our exclusive interview below, Gibson has made good use of his social media powers to try and angle for some different powers: specifically those wielded by John Stewart as the Green Lantern. After fans started a campaign for him to take on the role, he let his 3.4 million Twitter followers, 8.7 million Instagram followers and 30 million Facebook fans keep the Lantern fire lit, which eventually led Warner Bros. to bring him in for a couple of meetings.

Check out below to find out just where those talks have led, and let us know if you think he's the right man for the job.

The Fate of the Furious is now available from Universal Home Entertainment on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand.
