I'm sure Reynolds is just clearing his slate for the inevitable R.I.P.D sequel films he'll be busy with.

Maybe Reynolds should just abstain from doing any more superhero movies. He's done three now, and they all stink. Yerrrr out!!

I'm not saying any of them were his fault, just that maybe he's jinxed.
Reynolds should abstain from making movies. He sorta sucks.

Watch a movie called "The Nines"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0810988/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

The movie plays with reality a bit and Ryan has several hats.

Melissa McCartney is also fantastic in this.

OK, I don't know how clean that would be.
More likely to be retitled the Purple Helmet.

Re: Ryan Reynolds Not Interested in Returning as Green Lantern Right N

I have zero interest in a movie centered on any of the existing Green Lanterns other than Hal Jordan. OTOH, much as I liked Reynolds it's not a real challenging part to recast.

Other than Jordan, the most desirable option as far as I'm concerned would be for screenwriters to invent a new character tailored for the movie medium and the specific story they have in mind.

Seriously though, John or Kyle are my preferred screen GL's. While I find Hal dull, I thought Reynolds did fine with the crap he had to work with.

I'd rather see a Lensman adaptation.

^ "Although, to be fair, we're not really interested in more Green Lantern full stop right now", Everyone Else then added, observing that Guardians of the Galaxy is a much more promising and happening venture these days.

A new human Green Lantern was tapped recently.

Simon Baz.

Punk kid. 20-something.

Bored, decides to go for a joy ride.

Steals a van.

Starts driving.

Looks in the back... There's a massive bomb in the back and the digital clock is clearly counting down to zero quickly.

Rather than freaking, Simon finds an abandoned near by factory and clears the blast radius just in time saving thousands of people from death and permanent maiming.

So after Homeland security arrests him for terrorism... Becuase y'know how he's black and Muslim... Did I mention how he's black and Muslim? So it's like a really bad day for Simon.

This CIA creep is talking about waterboarding and wiring his junk up to a car battery when a Green Lantern Ring crashes through the ceiling and selects Simon for the Corps becuase he meets the Criteria of being fearless and honest.

Up, up and a fucking way.

To say that the US government shat a brick that a (presumed) Mulism extremist terrorist has a Green Lantern Ring is some what of an understatement.

Shit got real.

Hal Jordan or bust.

There's a good film in that first GL movie but it's bogged down in pointless chuffer (the family birthday scene, Pie Face at Hal's appartment ("I know, right?!"), Pie Face and Carol at Hal's appartment after his fight with Hector).

You could edit pretty much all that out with some minor reworkings and have a more streamlined action packed movie.

I bet there's a terrific fan edit out there

They should hire JJ Abrams to reboot it as Red Lantern, because Green isn't cool any more with the young people.

J.J. Abrams would be the best thing that could happen to Green Lantern.
