Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern

Ryan Reynolds, who’s already playing the role of Marvel’s Deapool, has been selected by Warner Bros to play as DC Comic’s Green Lantern in the upcoming movie dedicated to the green-ring hero.The news came as a surprise to all. But well, Ryan Reynolds is a good actor, and most agree that he’s a quite good choice.

Update: here’s the first official picture of Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern:

Here’s an earlier fan-art rendition of Ryan Reynolds in the Green Lantern’s outfit:

This announcement of the lead actor indicates that the story of this Green Lantern movie will revolve around Hal Jordan, the original Caucasian Green Lantern. So we are likely to see the battle between Legion and Abin Sur, Abin Sur’s crash landing on Earth, as well as the choosing of Hal Jordan.

I wonder if Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern is going to recite the oath with pride or with a deadpoolesque tongue in cheek:

In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil’s might,
Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!

Hal Jordan/All Current Lanterns

Anyway Director Martin Campbell will have a significant budget ($150 million) to blow us away with the the movie Green Lantern, so let’s hope it will be awesome.

    Green Lantern? Really?! When it comes down to DC Heroes, I’ve always imagined Ryan Reynolds to play as The Flash. Just dye his hair a little red and booyah you have Wally West. Especially with his comedic roles he has played (and the nice comedic roles that were shown in Justice League Unlimited), I’d say that Ryan would definitely fit the bill as Wally.
