Exclusive: Ryan Reynolds Expected To Return For Justice League Movie As Green Lantern


1851 On top of the Justice League Movie news we already shared, with the Man of Steel and Batman reboot, we now have something on Green Lantern.

Our source tells us that Ryan Reynolds is expected to return for the Justice League Movie.

Though the Green Lantern movie was - shall we say - less than stellar, and Reynolds himself has stated he has nothing to do with a Justice League Movie, we are told that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment expect the actor to reprise his role as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern.

While Reynolds did state previously that he hasn't been approached about the Justice League Movie, he did seem to leave the possibility open when he added, “We’ll see if they do it in the long run.”

We are also told that the events that transpired in the Green Lantern movie — although they won't be ignored in the Justice League Movie, they won't be acknowledged either. It will sort of be hints to Green Lantern's backstory, and the character will be more serious than in the solo film (more like how he was towards the end of the film).

Regarding the Green Lantern movie sequel, we're told it has a treatment but the situation is unclear. It most likely will be brought to a stage where it is near getting the green light and will be held there until things become clearer where that franchise is headed.
