Ryan Reynolds is Officially the ‘Green Lantern’

Rumors had been tossed around for months about who would fill the shoes of the Green Lantern. Variety reports today that instead of going with a risky, fresh choice, they have decided to recycle comic book movie actors and cast Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern. It sounds like a lot of good actors were pining for this role, and it is disappointing that they went with an actor that seemed so…conventional.

Don’t get me wrong, Reynolds is a fine actor. However, having already been established as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the upcoming X-Men sequels, he won’t be as fresh in yet another super hero role. I would have rather seen somebody like Jared Leto or Justin Timberlake. Hell, Jonah Hill would have been a hilarious and different choice. Anything but more of the same.

Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, Vertical Limit) will direct the film. The Green Lantern‘s story is fascinating and this could be a brilliant film if done right, but to be completely honest my hopes are not high.
