Ryan Reynolds Selected to Play Hal Jordan

Whew! Those scary rumors of Justin Timberlake as Green Lantern can be gone. Still, though, I’m not terribly excited about this choice either. I really hope that this doesn’t interfere with his Deadpool film, which he is perfect for.

Variety reported earlier today that Ryan Reynolds has been selected to play Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern, in the upcoming film. Production is set to begin January.

This has potential to be great. Green Lantern, one of my favorite heroes, can be translated into a great movie – but only when done right. But with Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) directing, maybe this could work out very well.

What do you think? Are you getting excited for the Green Lantern movie?
