When it was announced that a Justice League movie was finally being made, there were many discussions about who would be playing the characters in the film. Fans seemed to be split over whether Ryan Reynolds should return as Green Lantern and now, it seems that he has made the decision easy for everyone, by ruling himself out of the running for the role.
Reynolds told Empire, "I saw how difficult it is to make that concept palatable and how confused it all can be when you don't really know exactly where you're going with it or you don't really know how to access that world properly. That world comic book fans have been accessing for decades and falling in love with. So at this point I have very little interest in joining that kind of world."
However, Ryan did admit that he could be persuaded to reprise the role, if the right script and director was involved, "[A] great script and a good director can always turn that around. I believe that Joss Whedon is the guy that just nails it and Christopher Nolan obviously nails it. So if they were gonna do it like that, it would be an interesting thing to do," he added.
We could still be quite some way off of actually seeing a Justice League movie being made and it is expected to be much later than the previously mentioned 2015 release date. A whole new Justice League script is having to be rewritten before a director will be brought on board and casting can begin.
