The “Deadpool” star isn’t as proud of each of her cinematic appearances as she is of the productions of recent years.
Ryan Reynolds has secured his status as a superstar in Hollywood at least since his role as “Deadpool”. With appearances in “Red Notice” and “Free Guy” he was then able to prove his comedic talent. However, the fact that he is not proud of all the films in his career was proven by the DC production “Green Lantern“ from the year 2011, which you Friday, August 5, 2022 at 10:30 p.m in the program of ProSieben can catch up.
In it, Reynolds embodies Hal Jordan, a fighter pilot who normally has a carefree life, but is chosen by an alien crash-landing on Earth to take his place as part of the Green Lantern Corps, an intergalactic organization whose goal is to… protect universe.

“Green Lantern” is considered a cinema flop, but the following films were far worse at the box office:
Severe production problems caused displeasure among the crew and fans – Ryan Reynolds found a happy ending
The film had a budget of US$200 million at the end of filming and just barely recouped the production costs at the worldwide box office. Financially a big flop. Not only did the complex CGI, which appeared fermented here and there, harm the film, director Martin Campbell (“James Bond: Casino Royale”) planned a complex ending, which was prevented by budget cuts on the part of the studio.
While Reynolds at least recovered from his fear of heights during the shoot, the film fell flat with fans of the DC template. The main actor himself did not make up for the finished film until ten years after its theatrical release – including alcoholic assistance from his gin brand Aviation Gin. His final verdict:
“Maybe it’s just the Aviation Gin that’s talking, but there’s no need to be afraid of Green Lantern. Hundreds of crew and cast members have done a wonderful job – and while it’s not perfect, it’s no tragedy either. Next time I won’t wait a decade to watch it again.”
Still, he persisted in his signature role as Deadpool, and poked fun at his involvement in Green Lantern in the after-credits scene of Deadpool 2. How the film performs for you and whether it is better received after ten years, willing viewers* can find out on television on Friday. We recommend putting the gin and tonic in the fridge.
