Everyone’s favourite Pizza Place owner Ryan Reynolds is set to don the power ring and star as The Green Lantern in an upcoming Sydney-based production.

Reynolds beat Bradley Cooper, Justin Timberlake and Jared Leto to the role.

Casino Royale director Martin Campbell will helm the Warner Bros production. It will be the first film based around the legendary DC character.

The production is set to bring hundreds of jobs to NSW when filming begins late November.

Reynolds also becomes the first actor to star as a Marvel hero and a DC hero. Earlier this year he starred as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine; a role he will reprise in his very own spin-off. He also starred as Hannibal in the Marvel Comics flick Blade: Trinity.

The Green Lantern is slated for a June 17, 2011 release.

Discuss: Reynolds as Deadpool is a perfect match. But what are your thoughts on Reynolds as The Green Lantern? Personally, it would have been cool to see Cooper get a leading role, but watevs, Reynolds is awesome too.

  1. Don't care the fact is they are finally making the Green Lantern into a movie. As long as the producers don't stuff it up like they do with a lot of comic book heroes made into movies.
