Ryan Reynolds to Shine as Green Lantern

Ryan Reynolds is having a banner summer. On top of costarring in two of the summer's hit movies (Wolverine and The Proposal) and getting his own X-Men spinoff movie, Warner Bros. has just chosen him to play the title character in their highly-anticipated Green Lantern movie.

Earlier today, it was rumored that Reynolds was in contention for the part along with Bradley Cooper and Justin Timberlake. Jared Leto also screen tested for the role.

The role will make Reynolds "the only actor to have played heroes for both Marvel and DC." [Hollywood Reporter]
