WB Wishes Ryan Reynolds a Happy Birthday

Reynolds - DC Comics News

Ryan Reynolds recently celebrated a birthday and Warner Bros. was sure to pass on a birthday message.

Before Reynolds was the popular Merc-With-a-Mouth, Deadpool, he took on the role of DC’s Emerald Warrior, Green Lantern. Unfortunately for Reynolds, Green Lantern fans and DC comics fans, the movie was a mess, like most WB DC films. (Perhaps they should be looking at the common denominators such as their executive decisions rather than blaming the creatives of each individual film.)

The film came across like a TV movie yet still had a $200 million budget due to the overuse of CGI. The story was criticized for being silly and it was believed they brought in Parallax entirely too soon. Needless to say the movie was a flop and only brought in $219.8 million worldwide.

Despite its failure, Ryan Reynolds went on to become Deadpool which became a mega success that has already spawned one sequel. In both films, Reynolds took the time to make humorous stabs at the Green Lantern film.

Whether or not there is bad blood between Warner Bros. and Ryan Reynolds remains to be seen. But the official WB Home Entertainment Twitter page still took the time to wish Reynolds a happy birthday.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
