Ryan Reynolds promises that Green Lantern will be more space epic than comedy

Ryan Reynolds has been keeping us in the real on GREEN LANTERN. He's already defended the suit and now he's defending the genre.

Reynolds has been listening to the fan outpour and realizes that the trailer may have come off a little more comedic than intended. He promises that this is not the case, "They were worried about it. I think people should have their opinions. Fanboys are known to have a very loud voice. They’re known to beat their chest hard when they like or dislike something, and that’s all part of the game. I know, because I was an integral part of the shooting process, that the movie is not a comedy at all. There’s definitely a few funny moments in it. The levity is really kind of more in a Han Solo kind of vein than anything broader."

He then made a comment on taking a leading role like this one for a big studio, "You are quite exposed. You’re putting yourself out there on the rounds. And the push is just gonna be astronomical for this. It’s kind of exciting.”

During WonderCon, Reynolds told the LA Times that he was drawn to this film because it was a "space epic":

“A movie like this, you can’t even really get a script when you meet with the director. You have to base your decision solely on concept art and what their objectives are. For me, what sold me was the space epic. The idea of doing a superhero movie particularly in a summer particularly crowded with superhero films – it’s not really necessarily appealing to watch a guy earthbound. For me, it wasn’t. I love the space idea. The idea that it’s kind of like ‘Star Wars.’ I just knew that it would encompass so much ingenuity, creating a whole other world.”

President of Warner Bros. motion pictures, Jeff Robinov let everyone know this week that the studio would be going ahead with a JUSTICE LEAGUE film for 2013. What did Reynolds have to say about that? “That’s a whole other conversation. That’s a whole business model and nothing to do with me at all. No one has ever approached me about doing a ‘Justice League’ movie. We’ll see if they do it in the long run.”
