Will Ryan Reynolds take off the Deadpool costume to put on the Green Lantern one again?
The Wrap reports that the Golden Globe-nominated star of "Deadpool" is on a shortlist to play Hal Jordan in the DC Comics movie project "Green Lantern Corps." Reynolds already Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern before, in 2011 (where he met his now-wife Blake Lively).
He's joined on the shortlist by Tom Cruise, Bradley Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joel McHale, and Armie Hammer.
If that seems like a broad range of ages, that is correct. The project has been described as "'Lethal Weapon' in space," with Hal Jordan teaming up with John Stewart. Hal would be the world-weary mentor, while Jon would be the young rookie superhero.
It seems improbable that Reynolds would return to the role, considering how poorly the movie fared — and especially now after the wild success and acclaim of "Deadpool."
It's all early rumors, though. David S. Goyer and Justin Rhodes are writing the script, but no director has been hired yet. The tentative release of "Green Lantern Corps" is 2020.
