Ryan Reynolds revisited one of his past films that he’d probably have preferred to forget this week, and obviously live-tweeted the whole thing.
Ryan Reynolds Finally Watched Green Lantern For The First Time – And Got A Surprise When He Did
The Canadian star announced on Wednesday afternoon that he would be watching Green Lantern for the first time since its release, in honour of the upcoming “Snyder Cut” of the DC superhero film Justice League.
In the past, Ryan has been critical of his stint as Green Lantern, which was mauled by critics and failed to pull in big figures at the box office.
“I only ever read my parts of the script so this is genuinely exciting for me to watch,” he joked, as he prepared to hit play.Excited to see the Snyder Cut. But ahead of its debut – and with the aid of a good amount of #AviationGin - tonight at 6pm EST I’ll do something I’ve never done: actually watch Green Lantern. Happy #StPatricksDay— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021It’s apparently the only fucking movie in existence that’s not streaming anywhere so you’re SOL if you want to watch along. But I’m going deep. #GinnerAndAMovie#AviationGin— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021Starting GL now. First time ever. Too early to ask for a #SnyderCut of this fucker?— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021I only ever read my parts of the script so this is genuinely exciting for me to watch— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021Early on in the film, the Actor said his character was coming across as “reckless but likeable”, and continued to share his thoughts over the course of the two hours that followed. 
This included praise for co-stars Stanley Tucci, Angela Bassett and Taika Waititi and mock surprise at spotting his future wife, Blake Lively.This protagonist seems reckless but likable— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021I swear I’m drinking to Grammy winner and international ambassador of joy, @TaikaWaititi. Not to numb any pain I might be in.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021Oh boy. Tragic childhood flashback sequence killing a beloved parent. Designed to instill a level of depth and hard fought empathy for our hero. Disney perfected this move.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021Hey @BlakeLively is in this movie!!— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021Love Stanley Tucci.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021Angela Bassett is stunning. Period.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021As the evening wore on (and Ryan enjoyed some more of his signature Lantern’s Light cocktails), the film seemed to win him over, even if he was less than convinced by some of the special effects.Do you have any idea how weird it is to act while being attacked by invisible space energy?— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021Still have the ring pic.twitter.com/eDezX6iTQc— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021See if you can spot the CGI! pic.twitter.com/aXUXA8kR2i— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021The Christian Bale superhero voice. Who wore it first?— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021There’s a lot of heavy hitters in the movie. Not always used in the right way... but still... heavy hitters.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021He eventually concluded: “Maybe it’s the Aviation Gin talking, but #GreenLantern was nothing to fear! Hundreds of incredible crew and cast members did amazing work — and while it’s not perfect, it ain’t a tragedy.”
“Next time I won’t wait a decade to watch,” he added.Maybe it’s the Aviation Gin talking, but #GreenLantern was nothing to fear!

Next time I won’t wait a decade to watch.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) March 17, 2021Green Lantern was originally supposed to have launched a new superhero franchise for DC Comics, but these plans were quashed due to the poor reception of the film.
In the decade since its release, Ryan has repeatedly made fun of the film in interviews and the occasional awards show acceptance speech.He told Entertainment Weekly in 2016: “With Green Lantern, I don’t think anyone ever figured out exactly what it was. That isn’t to say the hundreds of men and Women didn’t work their fingers to the bone to make it as good as possible.
“It also fell victim to the process in Hollywood which is like poster first, release date second, script last. At the time, it was a huge opportunity for me so I was excited to try and take part in it.”
These days, Ryan is better known for his other superhero role as Deadpool. READ MORE:'Very Funny, Very Smart': How Ryan Reynolds Became Hollywood’s Most Likeable (And Bankable) StarRyan Reynolds' Response To David Beckham’s ‘Sore Wrist’ Comment Is Hilariously NSFWRyan Reynolds And Blake Lively’s Hilarious Valentine’s Messages Are So On Brand
