Reynolds: I knew of the Green Lantern, but I wasnt versed in it. You know, like, Geoff Johns, or anyone like that. I knew that he was an ordinary guy who was bequeathed a ring by a dying alien. It shot lasers out of it or something like that. Beyond that, I wasnt that familiar with it. I think I was most startled to find out how vast the universe is. I know Geoff Johns likened it to the Star Wars of the DC Universe and it really does feel like that. The scope is the thing that blew my mind. I couldnt believe it when I made that discovery. I met Martin [Campbell] like I was meeting on any other movie. They were casting the Green Lantern and I knew that I had already kind of dipped my toe in the comic book world a little bit. I mean, years ago, I played in Blade: Trinity and I had four minutes of Deadpool. So I wasnt sure if this would be the right fit or anything like that. I was really more interested in Martin Campbell just because I loved Casino Royale and I had loved some of his other films as well. I had 3 meetings with him total. At first, they were kind of trying to convince me and then by the end I was begging them for the role. They took me up to the art department and I met [production designer] Grant Major, [costume designer] Ngila Dickson, and [cinematographer] Dion Beebe was there. I saw the artwork and that was it. Seeing that world and seeing the possibility there. You dont want to put the cart in front of the horse, but if this were to work you do another movie. Barring that, you do another one after that. Then, you can see this going well beyond Hal Jordan and into the other Green Lanterns. You know, the fall of Hal and dispensing with him and then bringing on Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner, or any of those guys.

Is it right? Share after the jump. Now imagine that the Lord, if Ryan Reynolds (who, in dreams), which are nerd enough to know that the comparison between the new idea superhero movie candy color war star is incendiary. Reynolds is aware of anger that can inspire a new offering of time, but however, said Green Lantern can be traced directly to Star Wars Legacy.
