    I'm actually okay with that decision. I've like Reynolds for a long time, he's got good comedic timing and has demonstrated some potential to actually be a very good actor. My only fear is that with Reynolds as the lead they might make it too humorous, but that's a minor fear at most, Green Lantern isn't (or wasn't until now) a story that I really think calls for a dark tone. What is most interesting to me is what this implies for the Deadpool movie. Two competing studios will not want the same actor playing two leads in two different comic book movies, as it could easily confuse audiences (yes, audiences have proven themselves to be that stupid). So either the Deadpool movie isn't going to happen, or Reynolds will be replaced in it, or (and this is the one I'm really hoping for) they will keep Deadpool masked for the entire movie. Unfortunately, again, people are fucking stupid and a superhero with no face is a very tough sell. Regardless, I'm really looking forward to this movie.

    the article said that reynolds' option was on the table till friday and that the others had already expired. didnt mean that he actually got the part. it hasn't been finalized

    The only thing that's going to change now is how much Ryan Reynolds is paid. He is Hal Jordan, they only need to figure out specifics.

    Deadpool will still happen most likely. RR wouldn't DARE ditch a dream project he's been trying to get for years.

    Man, how would have fanboys felt if Justin Timberlake (who was one of the final 3) got the job?

    All that dream project business could very well have just been part of the marketing.

    Reynolds as Hal Jordan?

    I guess I would be cool with that. Kinda odd since I've read about Reynolds wanting to play the Flash for years, and now he's up for Green Lantern?

    Justin Timberlake just needs to keep his goofy ass away from these WB/DC movies. Hell, I even dreaded the rumors of him playing Jimmy Olsen back in '04, let alone Green Lantern!

    I'm okay with this. Although with the possible conflict of GL and Deadpool, i'd possibly go with Bradley Cooper :dunno:
    Although i really do want to see Reynolds do both roles :bowdown:

    I think they made the right decision. I couldn't see Justin Timberlake in the roll at all

    Fuckin' Nay-sayer.
    He talked about Deadpool long before Wolverine was in the works.
    A while back he was talking about how shocked he was when he saw his name in an issue of Deadpool he was reading, where Deadpool described himself as a cross between a dog and Ryan Reynolds.

    The guy's been reading Deadpool faithfully for quite some time.
