Ryan Reynolds Says No To Green Lantern 2; Most Likely Getting Rebooted

Comic-Con is here and fans are expecting a big announcement from Warner Bros. and DC Comics regarding the future of their comic book universe.

Geoff Johns all but said something was going to be announced when he previously mentioned that announcements would be coming across the board at the SDCC.

It's currently thought at the very least that Man of Steel 2 will be announced with possibly the Justice League movie as Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill will be in attendance at the Con.

One movie that seems to be on the block is a sequel to Green Lantern with Ryan Reynolds attached.

The 2011 Green Lantern movie was considered a bomb at the box office by critics and fans alike.

With the Man of Steel being a success, it's wondered if the Green Lantern movie will be a part of that Universe.

Judging from the following QnA with Ryan Reynolds, it seems as if his career patrolling the spaceways is all but done for.

MTV conducted a Yes/No question and answer with Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges while promoting R.I.P.D. and asked the actor if he would be interested in purchasing

"I don't think you can sell that to anyone," Reynolds responded.

Our own DC Entertainment source most recently told us that there would be no Ryan Reynolds in the Justice League movie, and I also heard that Reynolds actually wanted to play The Flash, but Warner Bros. only gave him the option to play Green Lantern. Looks like GL is going to be rebooted is our best guess.

Update: WB has announced a Green Lantern Corps movie for 2020.
