Ryan Reynolds never passes up an opportunity to make fun of his time as the Green Lantern. Reynolds made a quip about the Snyder Cut kick-started the prospect of seeing him in the sequel of Green Lantern. It seems the Deadpool actor to reprise as Emerald Knight in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
A fan-made Zack Snyder Cut poster of Green Lantern has recently surfaced on the internet showing Ryan Reynold part of the Justice League ensemble cast. It appears that the hero is faced off against Darkseid.
DC Comic’s Green Lantern standalone movie, which was released almost a decade ago, was a critical and commercial disappointment. However, with fan’s rendition are to be believed, this would be one hell of a battle. Darkseid is considered to be one of the mightiest villains in the DC universe and Hal Jordan (also known as Green Lantern) doesn’t boast any natural superpowers. The emerald ring of willpower allows him to fly and create physical constructs from his mind but that doesn’t grant him victory against Darkseid. Having other enable Justice league by his side, it gives Emerald Knight better odds of survival.
Warner Bros. hasn’t really touched the Green Lantern property for almost a decade. The character is yet to be integrated into the DC Extended Universe while Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman were all featured prominently in Justice League.
With Snyder cut’s poster of Green Lantern, some viewers are hopeful about the possibility of bigger things in store for Green Lantern. Moreover, Reynolds has also addressed these rumours and it has become the subject of fan art. In a Tweet, the Deadpool actor had revealed that he won’t play Hawkman in the Black Adam movie but is inclined to be in on the Zack Snyder Cut.
I’m not playing Hawkman in Black Adam. Although I generally do whatever the hell @TheRock tells me to do. I would, however, love to be in Zack Snyder’s Justice League movie and I’ve heard I may already be in it? #SnyderCut
