There are a lot of embarrassments in the superhero genre but one of the biggest came out in 2011. Green Lantern was DC and Warner Bros first attempt at a cinematic universe and to say that it fell flat would be an understatement. The movie bombed both commercially and critically and no one involved really wants to talk about it. In fact the only good thing that came from the entire production were stars Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively meeting and eventually getting married. It seems that Reynolds hasn’t even seen the final cut yet as he admitted in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“I’ve got to be really careful how I answer this,” says the actor. “Look, I’ve never seen the full final version of Green Lantern. I saw a very late stage rough cut of the film. Now, that isn’t to say that I didn’t want to see it because I didn’t like it. I have movies that have been received pretty well that I haven’t seen, and then I have movies that I have seen 100 times that people don’t like but I just like. The Green Lantern [joke in Deadpool] to me is just sort of, I don’t know, kind of fun. It’s me just taking the piss out of me, but it’s more Wade [Deadpool’s real name] though.”
You aren’t missing anything Ryan and the only thing Green Lantern is good for now is cheap jokes in Deadpool and Teen Titans Go! to the Movies.
Summary(?): After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Deadpool 2, directed by David Leitch, stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Josh Brolin, Brianna Hildebrand, and Zazie Beetz. It will be released on May 18th.
