I was unhirable after Green Lantern: Reynolds

November 30th, 2016 by bash Comments



Ryan Reynolds has said his Green Lantern movie back in 2011 “represented the death of the superhero for a while”.

In a new episode of Variety’s Actors on Actors, the Deadpool star said he struggled to find work after portraying Hal Jordan/Green Lantern.

After Green Lantern, I was pretty much unhirable,” he added.

However, the arrival of Deadpool has reignited the actor’s career.

Deadpool was one of those things that was just so specific – it was like this weird superhero anarchy that I loved so much,” he said. “I think I was in the superhero suit more in the marketing materials than I was in the actual film. Which is
 why I stole the suit at the end of production and just brought it home with me.

Reynolds will play Deadpool again in the upcoming sequel which will be helmed by John Wicks director David Leitch.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
