Bradley Cooper was in contention to play Hal Jordan in the upcoming Green Lantern movie, but was beat out by Ryan Reynolds.
It was reported that Cooper was in the lead for the role of Barry Allen as Marc Guggenheim, Michael Green and Greg Berlanti have worked on the story with Guggenheim and Berlanti on the script.
The actor responded reluctantly with:
“Well I auditioned for the The Green Lantern and didn’t get it so I’m reluctant to put on the cape again.”
Cooper is currently starring in the sci-fi move Limitless with Robert DeNiro that sees a former cocaine-addict who discovers a top-secret drug which bestows him with super human abilities.
Check out the trailer for Limitless below and here for a few clips from the movie featuring Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro in action.
Limitless is in theaters March 18th.
