Should Ryan Reynolds star in 'Green Lantern' reboot?
Ryan Reynolds is being considered for Green Lantern despite his last failed attempt. Why would he want to try this again? He's finally winning as unconventional anti-superhero Deadpool. Still—some DC fans and moviegoers see this as an opportunity to put the last horrible film to rest and start afresh. The Wrap got the exclusive:
Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Armie Hammer, and Jake Gyllenhaal are on the shortlist of actors DC Entertainment is considering pursuing for the role of Hal Jordan in “Green Lantern Corps,” multiple people with knowledge of the project exclusively tell TheWrap.
Reynolds told GQ that he would've done the exact same thing all over gain.
I mean, I don’t give a rusty fuck, because—I know that this is gonna sound like some sort of guy who’s spent a little bit of time in a monastery or something, but it all led to here. If I had to do it all again, I’d do the exact same thing. You know, also, Green Lantern—you gotta remember, at the time, everyone was gunning for that role. The guys I was screen-testing against are amazing talents. [Reynolds reportedly beat out Bradley Cooper, Justin Timberlake, and Jared Leto for the role.] But would I change it? No! And if it was as big a success, then it might have offered a whole different avenue of opportunities, or maybe I would just be kind of always that guy. I really don’t know.
But he now has the opportunity to reboot and star in a better film—learning from mistakes of the past. He did the same thing with Deadpool. Why not with GL?
While doing Variety's "Actors on Actors," Reynolds pretty much told Taraji P. Henson that "Green Lantern" made him unhirable. Again—why would he want to take on such stress starring as GL again?
Believe it or not—some fans wouldn't mind if Reynolds got a second chance.
What if Ryan Reynolds reprises his role as Green Lantern in a reboot? While being Deadpool too. That's a GOAT if I've ever seen it
