After months of rumors and false starts, today Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment gave the big thumb ring up for the Green Lantern movie. This according to Karen Goulekas the visual effects supervisor on her blog:
“‘Green Lantern’ got the official green light today,” she reported yesterday. “And not a second too soon — only 10 weeks out from shooting!”
So looks like March we will see Ryan Reynolds donning the green and black tights. This will be the second comic book character for Ryan as he is staring in the Deadpool film also. I really enjoy him as an actor and while I find his snarky humor more related for the Deadpool character than Hal Jordan (Green Lantern) I have the utmost confidence that he will pull off both roles well.
(Oh, and that is not an official shot of Ryan, just a fan rendition of what he may look like in the role.)
