Ryan Reynolds Is Still Warning Fans Away From 2011’s ‘Green Lantern’

Before there was Justice League, the other DC Comics film to be an embarrassing flop was 2011’s Green Lantern. >sigh<  Sometimes I still think what might’ve been if that movie hadn’t bombed so hard. It’d be a completely different DCEU, that’s for sure. Anyway, even after all of this time Ryan Reynolds’ awful performance as Hal Jordan is still worth a laugh, and that includes by Reynolds himself.

Green Lantern recently went on sale for $0.99 on ITunes, and a fan asked Reynolds if it was worth checking out, even at that price. Reynolds’ answer is short, to the point, and classic…

We had a lot of fun with the shit show Reynolds’ once-hot career became after Green Lantern, but we’re legit glad to have seen him bounce back. That he can make fun of himself and the choices he made (as he still frequently does with X-Men Origins: Wolverine) is what makes him one of the most likable celebs on social media.

Next up for Reynolds if the video game comedy Free Guy which opens on December 11th.
