Ryan Reynolds to be Two Superheros

Earlier this year, Ryan Reynolds played Deadpool in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie. There has been a lot of talk about a Deadpool spinoff, starring Ryan Reynolds because Deadpool played a large role in the X-Men comics. Now however, Reynolds has been casted to play the Green Lantern in a movie that may possibly premier in the same year as the Deadpool spinoff. While starring in two large movies is very exciting for Reynolds, I think that this will only leave fans confused. I believe that seeing one actor playing two iconic superheroes will only leave fans mixing up the stories because they will have a hard time differentiating between the two superheroes. While they are both very different, I think that the average movie go-er, who is probably not a huge comic book reader, will find it strange that he is playing two different superheros.

As an avid Ryan Reynolds fan, (I loved him in Two Guys, A Girl, And a Pizza Place, Just Friends, Definitely Maybe, and The Proposal) I am happy that he is finally being casted in large blockbuster roles, I just hope that doubling up on the superheroes won't hurt him in the end. Maybe the fact that the characters are so different, Deadpool a literal dead pool of X-men powers, and the Green Lantern a pilot who received a ring of power, will make the dueling superhero roles a good career move. I guess we'll just have to wait and see to see how both the movies promote Reynolds and deal with the possibility of his role as two superheroes, but I am hoping things turn out well.

If you want to read more about his role as both Deadpool and the Green Lantern, here's an article about it.

I don't about all this super hero business, but Ryan's BEST role by far in Monty in the move "Waiting". It made me realize how hilarious that dude can be. And if you've worked in a restaurant "Waiting" should probably be one of your favorite movies, period.

Who is Ryan Reynolds? I've heard of Burt Reynolds and his sexy spreads.

Oh also superheroes are not real.

Waiting is a hilarious movie, I totally agree. That should have definitely been included on my list of favorite Ryan Reynolds roles.
