Ryan Reynolds to Play Green Lantern

Perhaps he can use his power ring to create a good actor? The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Warner Bros. has chosen Ryan Reynolds to play the Green Lantern in the studio’s upcoming movie about the DC comic-book hero. Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, and Justin Timberlake were also considered for the role. “If the deal is completed, it would make Reynolds the only actor to have played heroes for both Marvel and DC," as he also played Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
