It's been reported that Warner Bros is having trouble getting the 'Justice League' movie together, and nothing from the script, to the director looks like it's set in stone. And although there's been heavy speculation on who will join the cast, there is one actor who probably won't. According to a recent interview with Empire, Ryan Reynolds does not seem to be interested in signing on to reprise his role as the Green Lantern for 'Justice League,' saying, "Working on Green Lantern I saw how difficult it is to make that concept palatable, and how sort of confused it can all be when you don't really know where you're going with it or you don't really know how to access that world that comic book fans have been accessing for decades and falling in love with. So at this point I have very little interest in joining that, as always a very good script and great director could turn that around." This news probably isn't too shocking to hear as 2011's 'Green Lantern' was generally panned by critics and audiences alike. However, Reynolds also said that with a good team attached he just might change his mind, quote, "...if you're going to do comic book movies in that vein you really have to get them right. Joss Whedon is a guy that just nails it, Christopher Nolan as well. If they were going to do it like that, yeah it would be interesting to do." As we previously reported, Christopher Nolan, Zac Snyder and David Goyer are top studio picks to come on board for 'Justice League' so it's still possible this 'Man Of Steel' dream team might convince Ryan Reynolds to change his mind. One comic book character he IS still interested in suiting up for again is Deadpool. Reynolds told Empire that the script for the standalone film is ready to go, but Fox is wary to greenlight what he calls a "nearly NC-17" movie. He describes the script as having a similar tone to Zombieland and focusing on a deeply mentally disturbed and hyper violent Deadpool who knows he's in a movie and a comic book character. As for the version of Deadpool he played in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Reynolds says the film would have nothing to do with that, but does have a funny moment where Deadpool addresses his own displeasure about how he was portrayed in the film.
