For the past several weeks there have been some websites pushing a BS story that Ryan Reynolds would be showing up in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Despite all of the evidence that that is one role Reynolds would never return to, people continued to push the “scoop” as if it were real. Today Ryan Reynolds poked fun at the idea.
He Tweeted a video of the “Reynolds Cut” of Green Lantern, which begins with the post-credit scene from Deadpool 2 as if to remind people how much he regrets the green CG suit:
Here’s the secret Reynolds Cut of GL you all haven’t been waiting for. In order to make it as great as possible we made some judicious cuts. pic.twitter.com/B2tUelctr8— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) August 4, 2020
The Tom Cruise gag is obviously a reference to the story that Cruise was reportedly going to play Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern Corps movie, but turned it down because Hal died in the script.
I’ve always like Reynolds’ Green Lantern. It spent way too much time on Earth, but the stuff in space and on Oa was perfect. Hopefully we’ll get a Green Lantern Corps movie in the future that spends much less time on Earth…
