Default Reynolds on tap to play Green Latern

Not crazy about Ryan Reynolds.
Director is okay (directed Casino Royale)

Any thoughts from my fellow comicheads?

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
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.

Yeah, I hear ya. I love GL & I like Ryan Reynolds, but I don't think they match well, unfortunately.

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.
