Of all the films on the upcoming DCEU slate, Green Lantern Corps might be the most mysterious. Yes, it’s got a release date — and, as of last week, screenwriters — but not much more than that. We don’t know who’ll direct it, who’ll star, or what the story will be.

The list of actors who’ve played superheroes is long, and getting longer seemingly every day. But the subset of actors who’ve played multiple superheroes is still pretty small. One who belongs to that exclusive club is Ryan Reynolds, who played Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, then Green Lantern in Green Lantern, and then Deadpool again in Deadpool.
That last film was the one where he finally struck gold. Deadpool fared better than Green Lantern by every metric, earning far stronger reviews and grossing way more at the box office.
