Ryan Reynolds to Play the Green Lanturn!

Ryan Reynolds in spandex pretty much ensures that I will be seeing this opening night.

Ryan Reynolds is slated to play the Green Lantern in an upcoming movie based on the DC comic superhero and I’m sure a lot of people are excited by that. Apparently, it was down between Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, Justin Timberlake, and even Jared Leto. Sorry, kids. He’s a spiffy dancer and pop star, but Timberlake can NOT act to save his life and Jared Leto looks less like a superhero and more like the poster child for Hot Topic.

Cooper would have been an OK choice, but I’m sooooo relieved they chose Reynolds. That man is straight up hunky. He was recently in the X-men Origins: Wolverine playing Deadpool, and he’s getting his own spin-off movie. You know what I say? the more spandexed-superhero goodness starring Ry-Ry, the better.

Green, blue, orange, fuschia… I don’t really care what color hornet Mr. Reynolds wants to be, as long as he keeps giving me this…
