It seems like just about every hot young star these days gets to tackle a superhero franchise, but Ryan Reynolds is the rare actor who has three under his belt. Unfortunately, none of them have quite worked out for him. Blade: Trinity didn’t have any successive sequels, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in which he played Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool, was a critically panned box office disappointment, and Green Lantern fared even worse on both fronts.
Nevertheless, Reynolds remains enthusiastic about the upcoming Deadpool movie, which he reveals will actually acknowledge how terrible X-Men Origins: Wolverine was. He seems somewhat less excited, however, about the impending Justice League film, in which he says he has “very little interest.” Hit the jump to read his comments.

On paper, a Justice League movie sounds like a fantastic idea. The Marvel Cinematic universe proved that a cohesive superhero universe could earn high critical praise and staggering box office grosses, and the core members of the Justice League are arguably even more famous and beloved than those who make up the Avengers. Done well, it’s a project that could conceivably blow The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises out of the water.
In practice, however, it may be a different story. Though a few details have leaked out here and there, Will Beall‘s script is cloaked in mystery for the moment. Now some worrying reports indicate we may never get to see it come to life at all. According to anonymous insiders, WB has soured on Beall’s take and could be bringing in new writers to start fresh.

Here’s another one to file away in the Blu-ray collection of your wildest fantasies: Quentin Tarantino‘s Green Lantern. Crazy as it sounds, the filmmaker confirmed in a recent interview that he was approached for the gig, all the way back in the movie’s early stages.
Although Tarantino’s never been the comic book tentpole type, the timing of the project apparently made Warner Bros. believe it had an outside shot: Tarantino was coming off of Grindhouse‘s box office flop, an experience which had left his confidence so shaken he sought advice from master filmmakers Tony Scott and Steven Spielberg. Hit the jump to read Tarantino discuss Grindhouse‘s aftermath, Spielberg and Scott’s words of wisdom, and how he killed The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

In the wake of the uber-massive-success of Marvel’s The Avengers, it wasn’t a huge surprise to hear that Warner Bros. had hired a writer to revive Justice League. They’re DC’s answer to the superhero team and a project has been in various stages of development for several years. The key to The Avengers, though, wasn’t just that it was a good movie. Much of its success was because it was more than a movie. The Avengers was an event with a four year, five film build up that started with Iron Man in 2008. Which begs the question, will Warner Bros. attempt to go the same route or will they jump right into a Justice League movie?
A report from Variety suggests the former. They’ve dug up that in addition to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, the Justice League news, and the Wonder Woman news, Warner Bros. has six other characters at various stages of development. And no, that does not include Green Lantern or Batman, both of which might get rebooted. Read what’s what after the jump. Read More »

Last week, DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio made headlines when he revealed that a character previously established as straight would be coming out as gay in the rebooted New 52 universe. Comic book fans immediately began speculating as to the identity of the newly gay character, and now we have our answer. In a new interview, Earth 2 writer James Robinson has revealed that the newly homosexual character in question is Alan Scott, the first Green Lantern. More details after the jump.
