    Good for him. Not every superhero movie needs sequels. I love how he praises both Joss Whedon and Christopher Nolan too.

    In essence, he's saying that the people in charge had absolutely no clue what they were doing, and he's not interested in seeing a character with a storied history and lots of potential go to shit again.

    Say what you will about Reynolds as Hal, but he is a fan, and I imagine he's as broken up about how badly the movie turned out as we are.

    not exactly a surprise considering how the last one went. Though I thought he made a pretty good Hal Jordan.

    The studio may not be interesting in Reynolds returning as Green Lantern ever, IMO.

    That's no slam against Reynolds, but rather that they may be looking just to start over (ala Superman with the upcoming Man of Steel).

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

    Yeah, I don't speak Entertainment Industry, so I'm somewhat perplexed.

    Also, and first of all, I didn't know anyone was asking him to do another movie.

    Therefore, it sorta sounds like he's trying to get out in front of some news that he won't be reprising the role? Or, is he trying to gauge whether the fans want him back by the volume of the outcry?

    FWIW, Reynolds wasn't the problem with GL1. It was the script; it stank.

    I am a bit disappointted. I enjoyed the GL movie and thought he did a great job. I was hoping they would tag him the JL movie. Who knows maybe they will?

    That's totally fine. I'm not really interested in Ryan Reynolds returning as Green Lantern either.

    I felt Reynolds could have done a solid job had the script been up to par, but all the forced "funny" stuff really hurt the film. Oh yea the giant yellow cloud as villian didnt help either.

    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. ;)

    If "Man of Steel" is a starting point then "Green Lantern's" style wouldn't fit with where WB is heading. It was too laidback/emulating the Iron Man movies.

    Hal Jordan is a delusional Supervillain.

    Every time he's given a taste of absolute power, that asshat takes a step off the sanity cliff, and the universe pays.

    His superhero career has been odd, in addition to GL he played a really bizarre take on Deadpool with his mouth sewn shut and a jokey Hannibal King uncomfortably crowding Wesley Snipes out of his own franchise.
