Ryan Reynolds Nabs Green Lantern Role


Last week, it appeared to come down to three rather different guys as options for playing the Green Lantern in Warner Bros. upcoming big-budget, "full-blown space epic": Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper and Justin Timberlake. Based on my poll, the majority of you thought Reynolds would be best for the role, and it turns out, the studio agrees. Ryan Reynolds will play Green Lantern.

Reynolds is still technically in negotiations, but "if the deal is completed, it would make Reynolds the only actor to have played heroes for both Marvel and DC." Earlier this Summer he starred as Marvel character Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a role he'll reprise when Deadpool gets his own full-length movie.

According to this latest news piece, another frontrunner for the role of Green Lantern was Jared Leto. Can you imagine? I can't. Yay for more blockbustin' Ryan Reynolds!

Well...I hope this means he won't return as Deadpool -- I thought he was a terrible choice for that Marvel's character anyway.

He could definetly do very well but I still would have liked Nathan Fillion better.
