Ryan Reynolds has spoken exclusively to Total Film about his role in upcoming superhero blockbuster Green Lantern.
The Canadian charisma-machine told us what it was about the character that appealed to him: “His real superpower is something everyone can relate to: it’s grappling and dealing with fear every day.”
Reynolds was keen to elaborate on what he feels helps Green Lantern stand out from the superhero crowd: “You have this cocky, arrogant Han Solo/Chuck Yeager type. It’s not that he’s fearless; he has courage.
“There’s a big distinction. One is crazy, being fearless; the other one is very human. I think that’s what makes him the greatest Green Lantern of all.
“I think that’s what kids and adults alike are gonna love about it.”
We’ll have to wait until 17 June 2011 to see if Reynolds' confidence is well placed.
