Meh. He'll be funny, but I like him better as Deadpool, his humor is more in line with Deadpool's cynical, sardonic style.

Not at all:laugh:
I have mixed feelings about it. I've never been a huge G.L. fan, so I wanted to get all the comicheads in and hear their thoughts.

Ryan Renolds is too much of a comedic type for this, but I never would have thought that Robert Downey Jr. would make a good Iron Man. So I'm willing to give Reynolds a chance.

I'm not such a big Green Lantern fan that getting this wrong would be akin to sacriledge in my mind, but I do like the concept and the character enough to want to see it done right.

I'm just waiting for the Martian Manhunter movie. A Booster Gold or Blue Beetle movie would be cool too.

There were rumours a while back of a green arrow movie with the guy from dukes of hazzard (who was jonathon kent in smallville)

Blue Beetle - Dumbed down Batman with more gadjets.. could be good.. Booster??? Staring??? Maybe in a real JLA moview.. I could see Ryan as Booster.
