In an interview with Empire Magazine, Ryan Reynolds expressed some dismay to the thought of reprising his role as Green Lantern in a Justice League Film.
“If you’re going to do comic book movies in that vein, you really have to get them right,” Reynolds told Empire. “I believe that Joss Whedon is the guy that just nails it and Christopher Nolan obviously nails it. So if they were gonna do it like that, it would be an interesting thing to do.”
“It’s just that… working on Green Lantern, I saw how difficult it is to make that concept palatable, and how confused it all can be when you don’t really know exactly where you’re going with it or you don’t really know how to access that world properly – that world comic book fans have been accessing for decades and falling in love with.”
Reynolds ended with this statement, “So at this point I have very little interest in joining that kind of world. But, you know, a great script and a good director can always turn that around.”
So it doesn’t seem like he is completely averse to the idea of playing Hal Jordan again, and considering the rumors about Christopher Nolan grand-fathering the DC Film Universe, I expect we may see him again. What do you guys think? Did you like Reynolds as Highball, or did he grind your gears?
