Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan in ‘Green Lantern’

Just before “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” created quite a stir for HBO Max and HBO Go last Thursday, there were speculations that, other than the Martian Manhunter (Harry Lennix), the DC superhero “sightings” the studio teased prerelease would also involve Hal Jordan, played by Ryan Reynolds in the critical and commercial bomb “Green Lantern” 10 years ago.

Ryan claimed he had never seen the film and has since found success with his portrayal of Marvel’s wisecracking Deadpool.In interviews to promote @SnyderCut, Zack admitted that he did toy with the idea of bringing Ryan back as a Green Lantern, although not as Hal Jordan—an idea too lofty to pull off given his limited time to finish the film. Although isn’t Ryan a little too gorgeous to play Guy Gardner, too mature to play Kyle Rayner, or too “contemporary” to play Alan Scott?

Trending Last Thursday, when the #SnyderCut broke the internet and became the Philippines’ No. 1 trending topic because of its initially problematic rollout on HBO Go, Ryan tweeted that he “finally did something I’ve never done: Actually watch Green Lantern.”

Ryan’s verdict? “Hundreds of incredible crew and cast members did amazing work,” he weighed in, noting that his wife Blake Lively was also in it. “And while it’s not perfect, it ain’t a tragedy. Next time, I won’t wait a decade to watch.”
