Wait what?!: Ryan Reynolds is the Green Lantern

Um, I'm not sure where I was, but I'm sure it's because I was face deep in the Scott Pilgrim books this weekend and busy writing the reviews for them. But, just incase you missed it as well, Superhero Hype reported on Saturday that Ryan Reynolds landed the role for Hal Jordon in the upcoming Green Lantern film adaptation directed by Martin Campbell. Campbell is best known as the director for the best James Bond films in recent years, Goldeneye and Casino Royale. Let's hope he and Reynolds can pull off the same magic for Green Lantern that he did previously for James Bond.

Personally, I'm a little uneasy about this news, as Green Lantern is one of my personal DC Comics favorites, and I'm not a big fan of Ryan Reynolds... not a good mixture. Also, Reynolds recently played Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool in this summer's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and is also attached for a spin-off movie for the character. I'm curious as to how Marvel feels about this decision, and how they even planned to do a Deadpool movie consider Wolverine's ending... Only time will tell I suppose.
