Van Wilder Goes to Oa

That’s right, I’m sure all you geeks know by now that Ryan Reynolds has been cast as Hal Jordan, Green Lantern of Space Sector 2814. Not overjoyed but far from enraged. I still think he would have been better suited to The Flash but as long as they don’t go too goofy with it he could make a great Hal Jordan. I think we can all just breath a sigh of relief they didn’t go with Timberlake! (Nothing against the dude’s acting chops, but come on!) Just going to have to count on the vision of director Martin Campbell to make sure the film has the right tone.

Of course it remains to be seen what this spells for the planned Deadpool spinoff. As much as I’d love to see a Deadpool flick, Fox’s track record for um… ya know, not shitting on their properties ain’t so hot lately, soooo yea, I got no problem with the ol’ “merc with a mouth” taking a back seat to the Emerald Crusader.

I’m seriously fired up for this flick to get rollin’ now! Green Lantern is absolutely the greatest superhero not to have hit the big screen yet (sorry Wonder Woman). The combination of comic book superhero with sci-fi space opera? That’s geekstasy my friends.
