Reynolds on Lantern

A comic project you might be happy to hear some news from is GREEN LANTERN.

Hal Jordan himself, Ryan Reynolds is talking about how LANTERN out of costume is just as compelling as Tony Stark when he isn't IRON MAN, "I think you walk away from this first film, and the moments that you remember and the moments that mean so much to you, not unlike 'Iron Man,' are the moments where the guy's not in the suit."Obviously, there's a character difference between Jordan and Stark. Jordan was a air force pilot who was transported to an spacecraft where alien, Abin Sur gives him a ring that gives him tremendous power. Then you have Stark, the playboy genius industrialist who heads up Stark Industries. These are two totally separate personalities, and Reynolds gets that, "That to me is the tough thing to get right. And that's something that they did get right [in 'Iron Man']. You see why this guy's in the suit, and that's what's interesting to me. Not that he is in the suit, but why."

He didn't say anything about a traditional origins story, even though the general audience will not be familiar with Hal Jordan, "It is [an origin story] to a certain degree, but it's not a labored origin story, where the movie [truly] begins in the third act. The movie starts when it starts. We find out Hal is the guy fairly early on, and the adventure begins." Here's hoping everything comes out, a-okay.

Extra Tidbit: It's nearly impossible to find a picture of Reynolds with his shirt on. Okay, I get it, he has hot abs! Who cares?! Geez...
