Ryan Reynolds is Green Lantern

After rumors that the role of the Green Lantern was down to three - Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper (whose star is certainly on the rise!) or Justin Timberlake (!??!), we have our answer. It's going to be Ryan Reynolds, who was one of the best things about Wolverine as Deadpool.

Empire agrees that “Reynolds can do headstrong and cocky in his sleep.”

Of the three actors vying for the role, Reynolds was our first choice to play the headstrong, cocky Hal Jordan, a hotshot pilot who becomes entrusted with an all-powerful ring and membership of a galactic corps of green-clad cops whose job it is to keep the peace in the universe.
Green Lantern is set for a June 17, 2011 release just in time for my birthday. "Green Lantern" a DC Comic that started in 1940, is the story of Hal Jordan, a second-generation test pilot. Jordan is an ordinary man who has been charged with defending a sector of the universe.

Yeah, Nathan Fillon would have been great, too, but we'll take Ryan. He's the whole package. Looks awesome, nailed the whole angsty superhero as Deadpool, and he's damn funny. I loved him in the Proposal. Ryan is an actor who has grown on me over the years. Good for him to get such a major role.

Here's hoping Bradley Cooper can snag something juicy soon, too.
