We like Reynolds a lot, but he’s already in talks for a “Deadpool” franchise spinning off from “Wolverine,” and we doubt he can carry two franchises at once. Timberlake is an intriguing dark horse: He impresses on his “Saturday Night Live” hosting gigs and made “Southland Tales” relatively bearable.
Green Lantern is a DC Comics hero; the movie will apparently center around his earliest incarnation, Hal Jordan, a hotshot pilot recruited into a sort of interstellar police force. Jordan’s ring can create a green version of pretty much anything he imagines, though it’s useless against anything colored yellow. The hero’s name comes from his ring’s recharger, a green lantern.
