There have been numerous reports that Green Lantern just isn't very good from people close to the movie. Some fans have responded in kind in terms of the trailer. One of the biggest gripes has been Hal Jordan's CGI'd costume, which appears in place of a real latex covered body.
Actor Ryan Reynolds, who plays Hal in this big screen version of the DC Comics adaptation, has responded to that negativity, explaining why he thinks the CGI is needed for the story.
"It has to be virtual rather than spandex. This is a suit from an alien planet. It's not The Dark Knight - I don't put the suit on and my voice drops several octaves. The suit is powered specifically on his will, his emotion, his creativity and his imagination. I love that. Everything Hal creates are images from his childhood. Or things fuelled specifically from his own mind."
Ryan Reynolds then went onto address the Deadpool issue, where fans feel as though he has pulled away from this project and that it won't ever happen. The actor actually stated the contrary.
"Deadpool's still in the works. I'm not sure how logistically it works in terms of scheduling, but yeah, I want it to happen."
"Those two universes are completely different. Superhero movies are so pervasive in pop culture, I don't look at them as superhero roles as much as just roles. They're such different people. Deadpool is about a guy in a highly militarized shame spiral, Green Lantern is more universally themed."
With a script for Green Lantern 2 having already been commissioned, it is unclear if Deadpool is being put on the backburner for the long haul, or if it will come between the first two DC Comics adventures.
