Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity, Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and now Green Lantern? If my memory serves me well Ryan Reynolds is going to be the first actor to play three different superheros, two for Marvel and if he finalize the lead part for Hal Jordan/Green Lantern he is going to be a record holder for playing superheroes.
But wait Green Lantern is a DC Comics! If he plays the ring holder is he going or even allowed to cross over to Marvel again to reprise Deadpool as we earlier reported as Marvel's future spin-off?
Three names mentioned for the part of Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, Ryan Reynolds, Justin Timberlake, and Bradley Cooper and eventually the part went to Reynolds who had a great year so far, X-Men Origins: Wolverine a box office hit with over $363 million around the world, and Rom-Com The Proposal till now with over $124 million world wide.
Green Lantern will be directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, GoldenEye) and produced by Donald De Line and Greg Berlanti. Berlanti wrote the script with Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green.
