Bradley Cooper befriends Green Lantern rival

Exclusive: "He comes over and he hangs out in his Green Lantern uniform."

Bradley Cooper's Limitless may be a worldwide box office hit but the Hangover 2 star couldn't manage to wrangle the lead of The Green Lantern from Ryan Reynolds during auditions.

"Ryan and I got to know each other through testing for Green Lantern," Cooper told TF exclusively. "They tried to separate everybody [who was auditioning]. They would usher you in one room and the other guy out the other room..."

"I was like, 'is this nuts?' I didn't allow that to happen. We were emailing each other. I know his wife very well from He’s Just Not That Into You. I love him. So now we’re always looking to do something together."

The new bromance will hopefully get its onscreen outing in an untitled police 'four-hander' set in San Francisco. In the meantime, Cooper got a first look at Reynolds in action.

"He’s put [the outfit] on for me a lot," he joked. "It’s great. He comes over and he hangs out in his Green Lantern uniform."

The Hangover 2 opens on 26 May. For more on the movie see the latest issue of Total Film, out on 14 April.

      Would love to see Bradley Cooper as the new Matt Murdoch aka Daredevil.

      Or Barry Allen's The Flash and they can "buddy up" in the forthcoming Justice League movie.

      Isn't the Green lantern suit CGI. So he drops round Bradley's place naked then. Or wearing a computer.
