Ryan Reynolds "Green Lantern"

Ryan Reynolds has landed the coveted role of "Green Lantern," getting the starring role in Warner Bros.' live-action film based on the DC Comics hero.

Martin Campbell will direct. Production is expected to begin in January.

Warners and Campbell chose Reynolds, who vied for the superhero role along with "The Hangover" star Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto. The momentum built for Reynolds in the last week, as he was the only actor whose option was extended.

Greg Berlanti wrote the script with Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green. Donald DeLine will produce with Berlanti.

fans say:

"Since the movie will probably be more comic book like for kids instead of an R rated action film for adult fans, I think Ryan Reynolds will be a good choice. I've been a Green Lantern fan since I was a kid in the seventies. And although I didn't like the Spiderman or Hulk movies, I can understand why movie producers target a younger audience. And more kids will be introduced to the same comic book characters us older fans have enjoyed all these years. I remember when they chose Michael Keaton for Batman and I thought right then and there "it's going to suck". But Tim Burton did a good job despite what a lot of fans thought about the choice of Michael Keaton. Lets just hope they do a good job with Green Lantern."

Here is a fan made trailer made a while back with "Castle" actor Nathan Fillion as The Green Lantern.

Who do you want playing the Green Lantern, Reynolds or Fillion?
