Since Martin Campbell‘s Green Lantern turned out to be both a box office bomb and a cinematic flop, a movie that was expected to launch a cinematic universe of DC parallel to Marvel failed to even satisfy those who started in the movie.
Particularly, Ryan Reynolds. The Deadpool star has since come a long way and made a name for himself in the industry with several blockbuster hits, mainly Deadpool and it’s a sequel. However, it seems like he isn’t going to forgive Green Lantern any time soon and will roast it at every chance he gets!
A recent fiasco has taken place since Green Lantern is available for an exceptionally low amount digitally. A fan who most likely wanted to troll Reynolds asked him whether he should purchase the movie or not considering it’s been 9 years. As evident from the tweet, the Deadpool star still doesn’t have a soft spot for the movie, and his answer his rather hilarious, to say the least!

Yes! He has a personal agenda against the movie. Roasting is an inherent part of his personality now. Somethings just can’t be forgiven, and that’s the case with this movie. It’s not a personal jab but rather a running gag that just doesn’t get out of date.
Looking back at the Deadpool movies, considering that Ryan Reynolds’s character often breaks the fourth wall, Deadpool in the movies doesn’t shy away from taking a cheap shot against Green Lantern.
Initially, in the first installment, a picture of the Emerald Knight can be seen in the opening credits, telling viewers right from the beginning that the Deadpool movies are built on the mockery of Green Lantern. Later on, at another point: Wade Wilson was undergoing an apparent operation, where he delivered the epic line, “Please don’t make the super-suit green… or animated.”
The hint given at the end of Deadpool 2 is even more hilarious and will actually satisfy Green Lantern fans this time around. As the end credits start rolling in, Wade Wilson goes to the past using a time machine device that was used thoroughly throughout the movie. He takes a stop in 2009 around Ryan Reynolds’s house where he’s seen reading the script of Green Lantern and seems happy about it, until Deadpool arrives and literally shoots him in the head, stopping Reynolds from committing a huge mistake he’ll not only regret but take shots at over and over again!
Ryan Reynolds isn’t going to stop hating that disaster of a movie anytime soon, are you? Let us know your opinion in the comments below!
