It is a pretty well known fact that Ryan Reynolds will be playing the new Green Lantern in the upcoming Warner Bros. picture, Green Lantern. But being just one superhero isn’t enough, as he has been speaking about how he is hoping to reprise his role as Deadpool in the near future.
“Deadpool’s (movie) still in the works” Reynolds insists in a recent interview. He acknowledges that they may be a scheduling conflict, but wants it to happen. But wait. He wants to be a DC superhero and a Marvel ‘anti-hero’? Clashing of the worlds? What?
He insists that because these two characters draw from two different universes, it is very well possible to play both roles. Granted, his role as Deadpool was played in the not-so-popular X-Men Origins: Wolverine, so pulling anything out of that movie also seems pretty unlikely. If you ask me, I think it was the Marvel and DC rivalry that did it with his marriage, his ex-wife playing Black Widow in the recent Iron Man 2 movie.
Do you guys think it’s ok for him to be in both Marvel and DC films as the title character?
