Reynolds Says His Green Lantern Isn’t In Zack Snyder’s Justice League

Reynolds Says His Green Lantern Isn’t In Zack Snyder’s Justice League

Ryan Reynolds confirms his version of Green Lantern will not be suiting up again for Zack Snyder’s much-anticipated cut of Justice League. Reynolds previously played Hal Jordan in the ill-fated 2011 Green Lantern film before moving on to other, more successful projects, like 2016’s Deadpool. Meanwhile, Snyder’s cut of Justice League is one of the most highly anticipated movie releases of the year.

Snyder departed the Justice League production after suffering a family tragedy. After a massive fan campaign on social media, HBO Max signed off on allowing Snyder to complete his version. Recently, Snyder teased a surprising hero cameo near the end of the film, leading many to speculate the film could see the debut of the DCEU’s first proper Green Lantern. This isn’t a far leap, considering HBO Max is currently developing a Green Lantern Corp TV series. Of course, any mention of the Green Lantern evokes Reynolds’ failed version of the character, which has fans of that film hoping it would be his version of Hal Jordan appearing at the end of Snyder’s cut. Sadly, according to Ryan Reynolds on Twitter, he’s not suiting up again for Snyder’s teased cameo. Reynolds has a little fun at the expense of his GL film, noting the suit stays “in the computer,” a reference to the infamous all-CGI costume from the 2011 misfire.  Check out the tweet below.

Reynolds is a good sport about the whole thing, wondering if perhaps it’s another Green Lantern who might cameo or even another actor as Hal Jordan. Green Lantern is traditionally one of the founding members of the Justice League, so it was always odd that he’s been mostly absent from the DCEU up to this point. There is a Green Lantern Corps film in early development, with writers David Goyer and Geoff Johns attached to the project at different points. The theatrical cut of Justice League featured a non-named Green Lantern in a flashback to ancient Earth, but that’s the most we’ve gotten of the emerald ring slingers so far.

Snyder’s Justice League is going to be a monster of a film. Clocking in at 4 hours – twice the theatrical cut length – the film could potentially be loaded with characters and references that didn’t make it to the big screen in director Joss Whedon’s compromised cut. We know Reynolds won’t be part of the film, but there’s still hope that a Green Lantern could make their presence felt.

Ryan in “Green Lantern” Sneak Peek

Check out Ryan Reynolds in action as the Green Lantern! Entertainment Tonight will have a full preview of the upcoming flick on Tuesday (November 16) but some sneak peek footage is available showing Ryan both stripped down and suited up as the famous action hero. Also included in the pre-preview: a brunette Blake Lively as leading lady Carol Ferris. Earlier this year, Ryan dished on his skin-tight costume. “They managed to find a material that — most would agree — is the most aggravating substance on Earth,” he said during Comic-Con panel. “We’re shooting in Louisiana, which is pretty close to the sun in terms of the hottest place you can find anywhere around. It’s been a little bit difficult running around in a unitard in the New Orleans high summer heat”.

New ‘Green Lantern’ Concept Art Takes You To Planet Oa!

If you were worried that director Martin Campbell’s “Green Lantern” wouldn’t spend a meaningful amount of time dealing with space, have no fear — some intriguing pieces of concept art indicate that we’ll have plenty of places beside Earth to call home when the DC Entertainment movie shoots into orbit next summer.

Courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures come two new concept illustrations from “Green Lantern” depicting Oa, a planet that functions as the intergalactic peacekeeping squad’s base of operations — and as you can see, space is very much a part of the live-action “Green Lantern” plan.

The first illustration depicts the Crypts of Oa, a cemetery of sorts where fallen Green Lanterns are forever remembered. The film’s version of the Crypt is a bleak landscape that you probably wouldn’t want to walk around alone — unless you had a trusty ring with you, of course. In the comics, the Crypt is watched over by Morro, the defender of Space Sector 0666.

The second illustration is a comparatively sunnier sight to behold: the Guardian’s city, essentially the very heart of Oa. This alien urban environment is where many of Oa’s most important features are, from the Hall of Great Service where the laws and stories that define the Green Lantern Corps are housed, all the way to the Planetary Citadel, the home of the iconic Central Power Battery — which may or may not have a little something to do with that green burst of light shining in the middle of the illustration.

These images are just a taste of things to come on the “Green Lantern” front, and what a taste indeed — June 2011 just got a little bit farther away!
