Ryan Reynolds appeared in "Blade Trinity," which was based on the Marvel Comics character "Blade," and this summer he appeared as "Deadpool" in the Marvel Comics-based "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." Then came word that the Deadpool character would be spun off into his own franchise. Now, it has just been announced that Reynolds has landed the coveted role of "Green Lantern" in the film adaptation of DC Comics' "Green Lantern," which is tentatively titled "Green Lantern."
But my sources tell me that Reynolds' deals to appear in these superhero franchise films extend farther than that.
I can report- exclusively- that Ryan Reynolds has been cast in every upcoming superhero film!

Reynolds will take on the role of "Thor" in director Kenneth Branaugh's upcoming adaptation. He will also appear as "Captain America" in "The First Avenger." But perhaps most surprising is the fact that Robert Downey, Jr. has just been replaced in the upcoming "Iron Man" sequel by- you guessed it- Ryan Reynolds!
My sources reported that director Jon Favreau was none too happy about the change, but shrugged his shoulders and got back to work. "I've got some reshoots to do," the affable director said.
We're still waiting to hear anything from "The Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan, about having to recast Christian Bale as Batman.
"It will be interesting to see how Ryan handles playing every one of the Avengers in the same film," my source continued. "He's a talented actor, so I know he can pull it off- but will audiences tire of seeing him as all these superheroes?"
I'm also getting word that Reynolds' willingness to participate in every single superhero film has put the "Wonder Woman" adaptation back on the fast track. This troubled film has been in development since before Reynolds was born- but now, with Reynolds set to star, the movie should be hitting theaters next year.
Ryan Reynolds will have his acting skills tested as he dons the satin tights of "Wonder Woman" in the upcoming adaptation of that classic DC Comics property.
So what do you think, readers? Is Ryan Reynolds a good choice to play every single comic book character ever? Or is it just too much of a good thing?
