A decision has been reached! Ryan Reynolds IS the Green Lantern!

Posted on 11 July 2009 by ShepRamsey

Yesterday we reported that the search for an actor to portray Green Lantern had narrowed to three: Justin Timberlake, Ryan Reynolds, and Bradley Cooper. 


Well, friends, according to Variety, after months and months of speculation a decision has been reached.  Ryan Reynolds will be the Green Lantern in the upcoming movie.

Reynolds was last seen a couple months ago in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as Deadpool, who is supposedly being given his very own spin-off movie–which gives Reynolds quite the full plate of comic book films.

I think Reynolds is an alright choice, although he may have to reign in his smartassness a tad bit on this one if he wants to be taken seriously as a major action star.

Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) is directing the movie, and production is expected to begin in January.

    I think he can pull it off. But you’re right, he needs to drop the overly-smug persona. But at least we know he can pull off the cocky-ness.
