    Default Ryan Reynolds cast as "Green Lantern"

    Ryan Reynolds cast as "Green Lantern"
    Fri Jul 10, 2009 11:18pm EDT

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - After an intense months-long search, Warner Bros. has chosen Ryan Reynolds to play the title character in "Green Lantern," the studio's live-action movie based on the DC Comics hero.

    Reynolds and his representatives entered negotiations for the part Friday, after the studio held two rounds of screen tests for the actor, Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto. Justin Timberlake also did a screen test.

    The film is being directed by Martin Campbell and produced by Donald De Line and Greg Berlanti.

    One reason for the lengthy search process was that De Line, Campbell and the studio each had a different favorite among the finalists, making it difficult to come to a consensus.

    If the deal is completed, it would make Reynolds the only actor to have played heroes for both Marvel and DC. He recently starred in a comic-book movie, 20th Century Fox's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," in which he played Deadpool, also known as the Merc with a Mouth. The character is being developed for a spin-off in which Reynolds will star. He also played Marvel's vampire hunter Hannibal King in "Blade: Trinity."

    "Lantern" is Reynolds second stab at a DC Comics hero. A few years ago, he was attached to play the comic company's speedster "The Flash."

    Reynolds is a weak choice for the Green Lantern, but he's better than Timberfake.

    Dude, Ryan Reynolds used to be someone I considered hot...

    Until he married Scarho.

    He's in everything now.

    It's getting kind of annoying.

    Is there really a market for yet another comic book 'super hero' movie, and Green Lantern at that? Puts me to snooze. Personally I think comic book hero movies are way overexposed. You seen one, you seen them all. Since this will be the first Green Latern movie, I predict half of movie will be all set up and character introduction fluff, followed by overload of CGI scenes.

    Boo. I don't want to see pouty-face Reynolds fuck up a classic cartoon hero.

    Ryan Reynolds is over rated.

    But Daredevil led to Elektra, but I doubt anyone wants to remember those two abortions.

    One of these days, my husband is going to figure out why I go to see these movies. Someday he's going to put two and two together and realize why I want to see Batman over and over, why I have no problem watching Wolverine and XMen....and now there's the Green Lantern. Sigh.
