Ryan Reynolds is on board for a ‘Green Lantern’ sequel! But someone who is not? His costar in the film– who also happens to be his wife– Blake Lively! Watch Ryan’s hilarious interview and allow him to explain!
During his Aug. 4 appearance on Conan, Ryan Reynolds shared a special something with viewers: the way he annoys his wife, Blake Lively! Ryan and Blake starred together in the 2011 superhero flick, Green Lantern and, though it’s something special they share, apparently Blake isn’t keen on the idea of doing another one!
For the teaser for his upcoming movie, Deadpool, Ryan had to do his best impersonation of voiceover icon, Don Lafontaine. However, in order to get it just right, he had to test it out of course! Apparently, Ryan figured there was no better sounding board than his gorgeous wife.
Well, that idea may have backfired on him. “I do [the voice] at home all the time, and I think it might drive my wife a little bit crazy,” Ryan said. Stepping back into the (admittedly impressive) movie trailer-style voice, Ryan added, “I’ll be like, ‘Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, in…Green Lantern 2. Rated OGNA for ‘Oh God, Not Again!'”
The film, if you recall, was met with mostly not-so-kind words from critics and audience members alike. In fact, it has a meager 26% on Rotten Tomatoes. In other words, a real sequel very well might receive an actual OGNA from most audiences.
A movie with a much more positive anticipated reaction? Ryan’s upcoming Deadpool, which will hit theaters in February, 2016. Actually, before getting sidetracked with the Green Lantern sequel business, the actual point of Ryan’s visit with Conan was to debut the first official trailer for the film which, duh, looks amazing.
What do you guys think of a Green Lantern sequel? Is it as bad an idea as Ryan says it is?
