Ryan Reynolds defends the Green Lantern costume and talks about Deadpool some more
In the new blockbuster issue of Empire Magazine, Ryan Reynolds talks both DC and Marvel.
First up, we have a little GREEN LANTERN costume talk. Reynolds defends the suit against the harsh, cold critics of the internet. Basic responses to the suit were, "looks like shit", "CGI crap", "WTF?!", "really long response that is filled with nonsensical hate, cuss words in caps, and is too long to read".
Here's what Reynolds fired back with:
“It has to be virtual rather than spandex,” says Reynolds, wearing his grey sensor suit. “This is a suit from an alien planet. It’s not The Dark Knight – I don’t put the suit on and my voice drops several octaves,” adds Reynolds, unfazed by the absence of green tights. "The suit is powered specifically on his will, his emotion, his creativity and his imagination. I love that.” “Everything Hal creates are images from his childhood,” he goes on. “Or things fueled specifically from his own mind.” Like green skin-tight body suits, eh?"
Moving on from that we have a character from the Marvel universe. For awhile now, Reynolds has stuck with doing a solo Deadpool film. We have no clue when it's going to get up and running. One minute someone is directing it, the next minute they take off. Good thing the script from Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (ZOMBIELAND) is still in place. Reynolds continues to be passionate about getting the film out there, “Deadpool’s still in the works. I’m not sure how logistically it works in terms of scheduling, but yeah, I want it to happen.”
Then for some reason, Empire asked about a clash between Green Lantern and Deadpool. Reynolds gives the obvious answer, “Those two universes are completely different. Superhero movies are so pervasive in pop culture, I don’t look at the as superhero roles as much as just roles. They’re such different people. Deadpool is about a guy in a highly militarized shame spiral, Green Lantern is more universally themed.”
