    They need to start it clean with a Ron Jeremy Green Lantern.

    OK, I don't know how clean that would be.

    I would love to see a good GL movie with Guy Gardner. I'm actually a fan of Hal, who seems to get unfairly labeled boring by a lot of people, but Guy is just awesome, if he's written well.

    The feeling is mutual Mr. Reynolds.

    I've only seen Reynolds in Blade Trinity. Even his outtakes were bad.

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

    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.

    More likely to be retitled the Purple Helmet.

    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.

    ^ "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.
