Ryan Reynolds Won't Be Asked To Return as 'Green Lantern' For 'Justice League'

Today, Nikki Finkie dropped a potentially massive scoop on the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe post-Batman v Superman in 2016. She revealed possible and still yet unconfirmed dates for the upcoming DC solo films like Shazam and Wonder Woman. Now one of the movies she mentioned was an upcoming Flash/Green Lantern team-up film! While this is all very exciting she does onto reveal that Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern, X-Men Origins) will not be returning to the role of Hal Jordan.This shouldn't be such a big deal considering he has gone on record to having 'very little' interest in the Justice League...

This all comes after The Flash script written by Green Lantern and Arrow scribes Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim featured a post credit scene featuring Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern. This was actually suppose to kick-start the DC universe but was scrapped and re-booted yet again with Zack Snyder's Man of Steel.

Now the real question is will we get a full reboot with a brand new Hal Jordan in the Justice League movie and then The Flash/Green Lantern spin-off or will we get a soft-reboot with the events in 2011 Green Lantern taking place. But moving onto a new Green lantern like John Stewart, Guy Gardner or even Kyle Rayner? That remains to be seen...I happen to be like many who hope Dwayne Johnson secret DC role is John Stewart but that's just speculation.

She goes onto reveal that the most of not all of Warner Brothers plans on this new DC Cinematic Universe will be revealed at SDCC 2014 with casting announcements along with the movie announcements. Watch out Marvel...DC is looking to steal the show.
