Ryan Reynolds Cast as the GREEN LANTERN
It’s official, Ryan Reynolds has been cast as the GREEN LANTERN.
Now I don’t know much about the comic book so I can talk about that much, and I really love Ryan Reynolds so nothing against him, but I have to ask: could they really not find anybody else to play another superhero on screen? Ryan Reynolds was already in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and will also star in the new Deadpool movie (although still in development, but slated for 2011) as the main character obviously. So does it really make sense to associate him with yet another comic book character?
Is there really no other actor out there that could play the part? And I’m not talking about all the familiar faces out there, I want some new blood. Someone that you can associate with the character without thinking “oh yeah, that’s so and so from this and that movie.”
Now of course I will go see the movie, because let’s face it, it’s Ryan Reynolds (whom as I mentioned above I love) and it’s going to be a blockbuster superhero movie. But still, I think that sometimes thinking out of the box can yield some even better results than expected.
What do you guys think of Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern?
