[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6259:]]Ryan Reynolds has been making the rounds promoting the animated movie The Croods, which also stars Emma Stone and Nicholas Cage.

Previously we heard Ryan Reynolds make mention of the fact that Fox Studios is reluctant to pull the trigger on an R-Rated Deadpool movie.

Now the actor is asked about reprising as Green Lantern in the Justice League movie.

Speaking with Empire Online, Ryan Reynolds seems just as reluctant to join Justice League -- unless there is a great script and good director, which is something that has been said before by other actors.

"Not yet," Reynolds responds, when asked if he has got a call about the Justice League movie. "I don't know. If you're gonna do comic book movies in that vein, you really have to get them right. I believe that Joss Whedon is the guy that just nails it and Christopher Nolan obviously nails it. So if they were gonna do it like that, it would be an interesting thing to do.

"It's just that... working on Green Lantern, I saw how difficult it is make that concept palatable," Reynolds continues. "And how confused it all can be when you don't really know exactly where you're going with it or you don't really know how to access that world properly - that world 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 kind of world. But, you know, a great script and a good director can always turn that around."

Speaking of the Deadpool movie, Ryan Reynolds addresses the previous movie with The Merc With The Mouth, Wolverine Origins.


"In the current iteration of the script, it doesn't address Wolverine - though it does address Deadpool's appearance in Wolverine. Deadpool was not happy with Deadpool in Wolverine. He has a sort of a WTF!? moment with that," Reynolds offered.
