Soon Ryan Reynolds may don the CGI Suit to reprise Green Lantern in Zack Snyder’s Justice League
Christmas came early this year for Snyder fans. Since the official announcement of the much-hyped Zack Snyder Justice League, the DCEU is on a roll. Like Ben Affleck, Jared Leto, and Amber Heard join Snyder’s team for reshoots. There is another possible big name from the Marvel universe joining, or should we say re-joining the DC universe. According to Grace Randolph, comic writer and Youtuber, Deadpool can join the Justice League against Steppenwolf. Before you get excited out of your wits, we mean Ryan Renolds.
Ryan Reynolds and the CGI suit
Some interesting things are happening in Hollywood right now. By this time last year, no one would have believed in the possibility of a Snyder Cut, Jared Leto back as Joker, Tobey Maguire in MCU Spider-verse, and maybe Ryan Reynolds returning as Green Lantern.
Whilst Zack Snyder has been coy about answering Green Lantern related questions during his media and fan interactions. Ryan has been vocal about his failed attempt at donning the green ring in 2011. Snyder was an Executive Producer for the movie. In last decade Reynolds has repeatedly taken digs at his stint as the Green Lantern, in his Deadpool movies and otherwise. Remember the Green Animated Suit reference in Deadpool 1 and the end credit scene in Deadpool 2? Nonetheless, he supported the Snyder Cut at CCXP ‘6 Underground’ panel.
Now as per the rumours, we may very soon hear the official confirmation of Ryan Reynolds being part of the Justice League. Soon after the reshoots for Snyder Cut was announced speculations made the round that Snyder wants to include Reynolds’ Green Lantern as well. Randolph further affirmed the rumour after Leto’s casting.
After Leto’s return as Joker in Snyder Cut if indeed Ryan Reynolds dons the CGI green suit DC might hit the goldmine. Additionally, business wise it makes more sense to give viewers something to look forward to each week. Snyder Cut might actually amp up the HBO Max subscription which was Warner Bros’ original idea behind green lighting Snyder’s vision. Finally, DC is going the Marvel way and listening to what we, the fans, want!
Shining the green light of hope
It is now clear that Warner Bros is betting high stakes on Zack’s JL to catapult its streaming service, HBO Max. On the other hand, Snyder is leaving no stones unturned with this opportunity. The director is doing everything to make this the most complete project. The inclusion of characters like Joker, Green Lantern, and Mera hints at the fact that Zack is indeed tying all the loose ends of the DC universe.

WB has already announced an upcoming Green Lantern show for HBO Max and a Batman spin-off in the Batinson universe. Could this mean that WB is closer to get Ryan Reynolds to reprise his role as the Green Lantern? But one thing is for sure that Zack Snyder Justice League will surely change the DC Extended Universe and this time, for good.
