[Movies] Ryan Reynolds Says He's Not Interested in Playing Green Lantern in Justice League Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.22.2013
He learned how hard it is while doing Green Lantern...
Ryan Reynolds has been rumored as likely to return as Green Lantern for the Justice League movie, but Reynolds seems to have other ideas. The actor spoke with Empire and said he isn't too keen on reprising the role for the team-up movie, citing what he learned about comic book films on Green Lantern as the reason.
"If you're going to do comic book movies in that vein, you really have to get them right," Reynolds said. "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."
He contiued, "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...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."
