Reynolds is Lantern!

07.10.2009

Bradley Cooper won't be fleeing the color yellow, and Justin Timberlake won't be taking it on down to Lanternville.

After a week of buzz, Ryan Reynolds has vanquished his competitors and won the seemingly coveted opportunity to wear the ring (and maybe tights) for GREEN LANTERN, according to Variety.

Reynolds completes a comic-character hat trick (after Hannibal King and Wade "Deadpool" Wilson) to play Hal Jordan, who gets conscripted into the Green Lantern Corps and is tasked with protecting the planet by fabricating emerald-colored objects with powerful finger jewelry.

Two-time Bond relauncher Martin Campbell (GOLDENEYE, CASINO ROYALE) is directing the Warner Bros. action/sci-fi flick about the DC Comics hero. Production is now expected to begin in January (the movie was initially planned for a December 2010 release). Where this leaves Reynolds' planned DEADPOOL movie (a possible conflict of interest) remains to be seen.

Extra Tidbit: Now we just need to find a comic character for oft-mentioned Nathan Fillion.

June 17, 2011 Release Date

Directly from the studio, the movie is suppose to be released on JUNE 17, 2011. So production should be starting by the beginning of the year next year. I'm cool with this.

NO!!

This guy does not have the stuff nor the sex appeal to be an action hero! Didn't they notice he had a short stint in Wolverine. Also he sucked in Blade 3! Can anyone say "DAREDEVIL Part 2".

YES YES YES

This is great news! I mean its not as awesome as Deadpool but when you look at it, its great because this movie is shaping up to be one hell of a summer blockbuster. You have Ryan Reynolds coming into play, Martin Campbell who is an underrated but great director who knows his shit, the early foundations of pre-production already being laid, and a release date. Who knows how long it will take for Deadpool to finally get his PROPER screen treatment. Let's just all smile and go about our day and

No no no

Say it ain't so JoBlo! I like RR, but this role is totally wrong for him. If I were him, I'd chain that lovely bride of his to the bed for the summer, lock myself at home and enjoy some time off, but that's just me. Sorry RR, I'm not hating but I disagree with this casting choice. Then again, Timberlake would have been a bigger mistake.

regarding Deadpool the movie

I'M SURPRISED at the amount of people who are supporting Deadpool the movie. It's shocking because Wolverine was such an average movie from a studio that doesn't give a sh*t about the comic fanbase; that's right Fox.

I want a good Deadpool movie. I really do, so it's not I'm just blindly hating

Deadpool NOT Green Lantern...

I was keen on his Deadpool interest and willing to make a full-on, faithful adaptation of that Marvel Character. Now that he's making a DC movie (which I have only enjoyed the recent Batman's and Burton's Batman films), I think this SUCKS. Hell, I read comics and stay away from DC all together... I mean look at where they have taken their FILM franchises... a luckluster Superman reboot (not remake) with a LAME villian. I hope this is a farce, but if it ends up being true I hope they do it

I'm skeptical of this casting mainly because Reynolds' schtick, if you will, is more suitable to the Guy Gardner character than Hal Jordan. He's perfect for Guy Gardner, actually, and I have a hard time seeing him as Hal. Plus, people have mentioned the odd, but ultimately successful, casting of RDJ and Heath Ledger as Iron Man and The Joker respectively; I guess I was hoping they'd take a risk with this flick, like they did with those, in casting Hal Jordan because Reynolds is a pretty safe

And yeah, I really wanted Nathan Fillion to play Green Lantern, sue me. The dude deserves more.

Still, Martin Campbell is a very capable director and I'm willing to give Reynolds a chance and see how he fairs under Campbell's direction. So it's wait and see for me at this point.

Hal Jordan is my favorite DC character (of the very few I care for) and I'm happy RR has been cast. With Campbell directing and Reynolds now starring should make for an excellent movie.

P.S. - I also second the notion with the below poster in hoping that they shell out some $$$ for top notch effects.

Deadpool/GL

Deadpool isn't a green lit movie yet. They don't have a script, director, start date, nothing. There is no conflict, between Deadpool and GL, because there ISN'T a Deadpool yet. And don't forget, it's FOX. Anything could happen over there.

I wonder if this will end up in a lawsuit within a year or two, when Reynolds tries to cancel the Deadpool contract.

This movie undoubtly have more franchise potential than a Deadpool film.

Green Lantern should be Star Trek meets Spiderman meets Mad Max. They have to spend some $ on effects. And use a solid story. Reynolds could go far with this one.

Any one of those three could have easily played this role. They all have super hero builds, are good looking and have smart ass swagger. Reynolds will kick ass. One request: Make this bitch epic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Justin Timberlake? He's awesome on SNL, but I don't know if he could convincingly kick ass on the big screen. Kind of scrawny. I'd rather Reynolds focused on Dead Pool.

If I'm directing this, the first thing I tell Ryan Reynolds is this: "Forget anything you know about Ryan Reynolds and we start building Hal Jordan from there."

If this happens, I think it could make for a good movie, and push Reynolds in a direction he NEEDS to go that will make GL work.

I don't really care for deadpool. I never saw wolverine and never plan to, but I have seen Ryan Reynolds in other things and I must say I find him annoying. Although it is better than JT, I can't say I'm as excited for this movie now as I once was.

deadpool must be...

dead right now because no way could Reynolds do such an epic movie like GL which will take up the next two years of his life and also I'm sure the contract he will sign will be for further sequals if this movie does well and any type spin offs like JLA movie. No way Reynolds is doing Deadpool anytime soon.

Not my first choice

He's kind of smart-assy for a top space cop, but I guess it will be good for the comic relief angle of the film. I doubt they'll put a mask on him.

Believe it when I see it...

Warner has failed to deliver on Joss Whedon's Wonder Woman, George Miller's JLA, David S. Goyer's Green Arrow/Super Max and Bryan Singer's Superman sequel. I honestly don't see this being much different.

And Fox will do Deadpool with or without Ryan, because they are just as dumb as Warner Bros.

secretly i think reynolds knows that deadpool is..dead... wolverine mangled the character and thus the spin off. this is smart on his part. get his own franchise that could build into JLA.

it would be cool to see Cooper and Timberlake cameo as other Lanterns...or possibly in sequals..

I like Reynolds but he's been in way too many superhero franchise already. Also, the fact that he's not exactly the most versatile actor in Hollywood means he's gonna play Green Lantern pretty much the exact same way he played Hannibal King and Deadpool.

Not awful casting but uninspired.

I have two words for everyone

Michael Keaton. Everyone threw a hissy-fit when Tim Burton cast him as the Caped Crusader two decades ago. Through all of the character's incarnations, Keaton's is still the best Batman ever put on screen.

Before you freak out, let's see what Reynolds does with the character and, more importantly, what Campbell does with Reynolds.

Martin Campbell has done the best two Bond movies in more than 20 years and directed Banderas to one of the most exciting adventure movies in cinema history.

Three words:

"get over it"... fan boys pissing their pants over casting is so cliche. At least let the performance be given before casting judgment. Nobody is casting movie stars based on somebody's personal fantasy of how their comic book hero's life should be played out. Get over yourselves - nobody is consulting you for casting.

The Voice

is one thing really against RR. His voice is not Hal's nor is his build. I won't mind this as long as he takes it seriously. Hal maybe cocky but he's not funny. Cooper was PERFECT build voice everything it sucks badly. RR should have been Kyle. HEre's hoping they don't fuck up the Captain America casting.

There's no doubt that Reynolds is in amazing physical condition. But his build isn't of Hal's like Cooper he's built like deadpool or the flash. I'm not really concerned for that as much as him joking to much. And his voice really is not the voice I imagine coming from GL.

Dude, the fact that you would make a statement like that means you have no knowledge of the Green Lantern's popularity at all. He may not be huge in the main stream like Batman, but in the comic world he is huge and hardly in the realm of Hawkman.

Reynolds it is..

Warner's is clearly playing it safe by casting someone a little well known as GL. Because, most people I talk to don't know who Green Lantern even is.

In Fox's hands, Deadpool would've fucking sucked anyway, guaranteed. This is a much more viable franchise.

I'm just glad they finally cast somebody too, sheesh.

In my mind Cooper would have been the perfect choice, but I'm very happy with Reynolds. I love Fillon, but he just doesn't fit as GL.

I also find it humorous that people think its Deadpool or Hal and can't be both. Reynolds is an actor and will continue to make movies, I dont see why Deadpool is any different. Frankly, Deadpool was still kind of a fairy tale at its current point in production anyway. If Pool doesnt happen its certainly not because Reynolds did Gl

There's no doubt in my mind Ryan could play Hal Jordan, it's just definitely not the way I thought the casting was going. I'm glad I didnt put money down, because I was definitely betting on Cooper

Reynolds is perfect casting, yes I agree. But him now starring in a Deadpool spinoff is now a fairy tale. I can't see a star of a major DC superhero film star in his own Marvel movie a few years later.

The only way I could see him in a Deadpool movie now is if we never are able make out Reynolds' face.

I like Reynolds. I even kinda like him in this role. But he was a near perfect Deadpool and I have a feeling this might keep that at bay for at least a little bit.

Then again, Deadpool is probably more of a one-off than a series, so maybe it can work? Still, if this delays the release of a Deadpool movie by a single damn day, consider it not worth it.

Are there any other actor who have played both a DC and Marvel primary character?

People Don't Get It

RR is a lot more similar to Hal Jordan than any other actor that was mentioned. GL is a thrill seeking, strong willed fly-boy. Nathan Fillion and JT don't really convey that. I was high on Cooper just to see some new blood, but I'm pleased to see Reynolds in the role.

Hal or Kyle?

At least he's away from Fox on this. I'd like to see a Deadpool movie happen as much as the next guy but not a Fox Deadpool movie.

I think he's a fun actor to watch. Given the right material he's not all bad either, certainly no better/worse than Bale.

Sucks for fans

I said it before and I'll say it again. Reynolds sucks! He sucks bad. The only time he's great is when he's not in the cast. I just feel sorry for fans for Lantern and Deadpool because he's about to screw them up, thanks to the no talent hack.

Reynolds is great. I can't complain with this at all. I think he may have gotten the part simply to hinder the Deadpool project. This is better though. I've sworn off all Fox Super Hero movies since X-3.

I don't think i could see Chris Pine as Hal Jordan also... though i cant wait to see what the dude does

There were a lot of actors I would have rather seen in the role (TheMazVolta's picks for instance), but Reynolds was definitely the best of the three finalists. I'm happy enough with this news, and definitely looking forward to the film.

Or maybe I just made that rule in my mind...I really hope Fillion gets to fill in the shoes of a comic character.

I never got the JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE rumor (although I enjoy him as an actor), but Reynolds seems about as perfect as you can get...for a "superhero type". First, he was rumored to be playing FLASH, then the whole DEADPOOL thing, but now it's official: he's green, baby!

Looking forward to it, and it's nice to see a "real director" behind the camera to boot. Thumbs up!

I guess I'm not bothered by this ... but I always thought that Reynold's would be an amazing FLASH. Hal Jordan isn't really ... funny.

That is, if they write Hal Jordan the way he's portrayed, Ryan Reynold's natural acting talent will be wasted. But if they write Hal like Ryan's typical characters, Hal Jordan will be wasted ... So, I'm not sure if

I was really hoping with that whole expired option thing none of the three would get the part and they'd go for Fillion. Oh well, I guess. Pretty surprised Reynolds got it, I was expecting Cooper to grab it. Not sure how I feel about this. I just honestly don't know.

As for Nathan Fillion, it doesn't necessarily have to be a comic book flick (although he was PERFECT for Hal Jordan!) to get him into the mainstream. If Indy 5 ends up happening, I say bring in Fillion as Indy's brother.

I never understood the appeal of Reynolds to be honest. This just seems excessive for him, how many comic book franchises is he going to be apart of? I know he's one of the few B/A- list actors who look just as ripped as the characters in a comic but come on man, I think a Deadpool spin off and a Green Lantern film is just... odd. Wonder how Fox feels.

Martin Cambell is an excellent pop filmmaker ofcourse, so at least this Reynolds superhero is in good hands.

Neon, I'm actually not a huge Deadpool fan (like the character, don't love him) but I know how bad Reynolds has pushed to get that particular character onto the screen. Would've loved to see him in a passion project so to speak. and let somebody else step up to this. Maybe he will do both, which is fine. Just seems like the kind of thing where it may be one or the other instead of getting his cake and eating it too, which would be fine by me if both movies turned out to be good.
