STALKING: RyRey in ‘Green Lantern’ – one more opinion.

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

Don’t make fun of me.

1 – for writing about this again.

2 – for this not sinking in sooner.

3 – for how embarrassed I am to have to retract that letter I sent to Warner Bros. and send a new one that says ‘Bradley Cooper was ROBBED.’

Why does Ryan Reynolds get to be TWO SUPERHEROES????  Deadpool AND Green Lantern?!

Deadpool

I am Ryan Reynolds.

I am also Ryan Reynolds.

Are Fox and Marvel like, so mad?  Shouldn’t they own him, or shouldn’t he have to sign something that states ‘I AM Deadpool.  Only Deadpool.’

And isn’t that risky for Warner Bros and DC?

Won’t people be like, didn’t I just see this guy in that other movie?

Don’t you think that took away from Christian Bale as John Connor (besides the fact that he was a lifeless bore) since he is far too identifiable as  Batman?

Is Ryan just being GREEDY????

I guess I have a lot of questions.

STALKING: ‘The Green Lantern’ News – Angela’s loins may rest assured.

Start spreading the news. According to pretty much every film industry publication that exists, Ryan Reynolds has been cast as the Green Lantern. We’re totally okay with that.

So – like Angela – I have no idea what this Green Lantern is all about. To save some face, I turned to Wikipedia since everything you read on the internet is true. But holy shit – there’s like a million versions of Green Lantern! What’s a girl to do? From the looks of it, I think this guy, Hal Jordan, is the main man. Correct me if I’m wrong comic geek readership.

In any case, so long as Ryan can pull off saying this ‘oath’ that apparently charges his super-power ring…

In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil’s might,
Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!

…without looking and sounding like a complete tool, we’re all in!

STALKING: Casting news for ‘The Green Lantern’ has my loins in a tizzy

Ask me what I know about ‘The Green Lantern’ and you hear crickets.

Cast any one of these dudes and you hear my wallet emptying.

The THR story:

Along with director Martin Campbell and producers Donald De Line and Greg Berlanti, Warners has spent the past five months searching for the actor to play Hal Jordan, the hot-shot Air Force pilot who is chosen by a dying alien to be his successor in an intergalactic police force known as the Green Lanterns.

This week, the race narrowed to Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake. The clock is ticking on the decision as the holding deal the studio had on the actors expired Monday, meaning the three are now free to accept other offers.

It goes on to mention a couple other choices, two names I don’t recognize and then…. Jared Leto.  Hear that?  It’s my wallet closing and my legs crossing.

Don’t F this up, Warner Bros.  I’m gonna go on Wikipedia right now and read all about Green Lantern and then ooh baby I’m gonna get all worked up if you don’t stay true to the material by messing with the plot and characters I hold dear and PLEASE CAST ALL THREE OF THESE GUYS.

That was an open letter of sorts.
