Zack Snyder has revealed how close Ryan Reynolds actually came to playing a Green Lantern in the director’s cut of the DC Extended Universe’s Justice League movie.
“Well, the truth is I didn’t really get… [Ryan Reynolds and I] never really talked,” Snyder told YouTube‘s Wonder Meg. “So, my idea was there was going to be, if possible, there was going to be a Green Lantern in the movie. We started to kick around this idea, like, maybe if we brought Ryan in there could be two Green Lanterns in the movie. We could suggest a little more of the [Green Lantern] Corp kind of concept.
