The resurrection of The Snyder Cut of the Justice League made a lot of news last week with the announcement that Jared Leto would be appearing in the film as the Joker and that Margot Robbie had been offered to appear as Harley Quinn. That doesn’t even get into the fact that both Joe Manganiello and Jesse Eisenberg were offered their roles of Deathstroke and Lex Luther in the film too!
Well, this week is off to a great start as it’s been reported that Ryan Reynolds has been offered to make an appearance as Hal Jordan. Reynolds has made a huge splash over the the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Deadpool. However, he was the Green Lantern in 2011 and that film garnered mixed reviews, at best.
According to Beyond the Trailer’s Grace Randolph, Reynolds “REALLY wants to do” Justice League and is currently working out a deal with Warner Bros. to cameo in the film. The only holdup appears to be scheduling.
Hearing he REALLY wants to do, just a matter of fitting it into his busy schedule.
Deal ready to go, again just need to make it work time-wise.
It would be BRILLIANT & so great for everyone involved, find that time! pic.twitter.com/VPs9ovwxLT

HBOMax looks to be making a huge splash with the Snyder Cut, as it is no longer just one film but is broken up into a four-part series. HBOMax also announced another DCEU mini-series, The Green Lantern Corps. Zach Snyder had a an idea for the Lanterns planned for Justice League but was unable to execute it previously. Now, it sounds like we may get to see exactly what Snyder had in mind.
The Snyder Cut sounds fabulous, but will Snyder be able to execute his vision once and for all? We will find out in 2021!
