Ryan Reynolds cast as "Green Lantern"
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – After an intense months-long search, Warner Bros. has chosen Ryan Reynolds to play the title character in "Green Lantern," the studio's live-action movie based on the DC Comics hero.
Reynolds and his representatives entered negotiations for the part Friday, after the studio held two rounds of screen tests for the actor, Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto. Justin Timberlake also did a screen test.
The film is being directed by Martin Campbell and produced by Donald De Line and Greg Berlanti.
One reason for the lengthy search process was that De Line, Campbell and the studio each had a different favorite among the finalists, making it difficult to come to a consensus.
If the deal is completed, it would make Reynolds the only actor to have played heroes for both Marvel and DC. He recently starred in a comic-book movie, 20th Century Fox's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," in which he played Deadpool, also known as the Merc with a Mouth. The character is being developed for a spin-off in which Reynolds will star. He also played Marvel's vampire hunter Hannibal King in "Blade: Trinity."
"Lantern" is Reynolds second stab at a DC Comics hero. A few years ago, he was attached to play the comic company's speedster "The Flash."

WTF Hal Jordan hasn't been the Green Lantern in forever.
He's been the GL for the past 5 years....
That fake trailer is amazing.
I think this could surpise people like Iron Man did last year.
Behind Batman and Superman,Green Lantern is one of DCs top five iconic characters (Wonder Woman and Flash being the other two).
I think this guy would have made a better Flash..he has the humor and the look for it. :shrug
As a Green Lantern...he fits more as Kyle Rayner(or whatever lol)..younger less responsible Lantern..lol
