During a panel at this year’s SDCC, Ryan Reynolds revealed if he hated Green Lantern or X-Men Origins: Wolverine more.
Today Ryan Reynolds might be beloved for playing Deadpool but his first few attempts to break into the superhero genre were less then stellar. He first appeared in the 2004 dud, Blade: Trinity as the vampire hunter Hannibal King. But it was his roles as other superheroes that had people talking, such as Green Lantern and Wade Wilson from X-Men Origins: Wolverine .
In 2009, Ryan Reynolds appeared in the X-Men debacle, X-Men Origins: Wolverine where he played a heavily revised version of Deadpool. The film was panned critically and despite being a relative box office success, the film is cited as the one that almost killed the X-Men franchise. He would ultimately redeem this role in 2015 with the release of Deadpool.
Before this happened, however, Ryan Reynolds would star in another superhero disaster. In 2011, he starred in the first live action version of Green Lantern which was also panned by critics and a box office bomb. So severe was the backlash against this film that it forced Warner Bros to put its attempts at it’s own potential DC cinematic universe on hold until Man of Steel was released two years later. And finally, Ryan Reynolds has talked about which film he hated more.
Taking a fan question, Reynolds was asked if he hated Green Lantern or X-Men Origins more. In response, Reynolds was coy. He apparently stated that he has grown to love both of them because of the jokes but that they are both pretty bad. In all honesty, most fans probably have a hard time deciding to.
