Ryan Reynolds Wanted To Play Another DC Hero Before Green Lantern

Green Lantern Deadpool Ryan ReynoldsBefore Ryan Reynolds finally hit the jackpot with the first Deadpool film, his luck with comic book movies were not so hot. He played a version of Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine that involved his mouth getting sewn shut and he was also in the abysmal DC Comics film Green Lantern as Hal Jordan.

Reynolds appeared at the Deadpool 2 San Diego Comic-Con presentation that explored the upcoming Super Duper Cut edition of the film. When asked about if he wanted to play another superhero in the past, Reynolds gave a surprising answer:

“I would say Wolverine, but God, I would be terrible. Honestly, I wanted to be the Flash – the Wally West version – but I think all of those ships have sailed.”

Can you imagine seeing Ryan Reynolds play Wally West in a new DC Film? Although it looks like that ship has sailed a long time ago, the idea of him in the role would be an intriguing sight. However, Reynolds has his beautiful connection to Deadpool that few actors and actresses of certain comic book characters have with their own characters.

What do you think of Reynolds comments? Would you have been interested in seeing how he would turn out as Wally West in a Flash film? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest Comic-Con news.

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Directed by David Leitch, the film stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers/Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapcic as Piotr Rasputin/Colossus, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al,  and Karan Soni as Dopinder. Julian Dennison, Jack Kesy and Shioli Kutsuna join the cast in undisclosed roles.
