Ryan Reynolds has had a busy summer. Heck, he’s had a busy couple years. And as much as I would like to leave him alone for a bit and not bug him about future projects (i.e. let “Green Lantern” earn a few more dollars at the box office, or focus on his next flick, “The Change-Up,” for example), I can’t interview him and not check in on superhero sequels, “R.I.P.D.” and “Deadpool.”
When MTV News caught up with Reynolds alongside his “Change-Up” co-star Jason Bateman at the premiere for their new R-rated comedy on Monday, I asked him if what he said previously about doing either “R.I.P.D.” or “Deadpool,” but probably not both, is still true.
“’R.I.P.D.’ I’m doing next and then hopefully ’Deadpool,'” Reynolds said. “It’s in development still.”
Aha, so this means Reynolds will not be choosing one or the other? “No, not at all, far from it.”
With regard to whether or not he’ll be stepping back into Hal Jordan’s snug green tights, Reynolds had no news to share.
“I have no idea, that’s not up to me,” Reynolds said of whether a sequel will happen or not. “I don’t write those checks. And if I did I certainly wouldn’t be standing on a red carpet, I would be sunning myself somewhere,” he joked.
Speaking to where we might find Reynolds’ Green Lantern in future film installments, he didn’t have quite as much to say as he did back around the film’s release.
“There are infinite [possibilities for a sequel],” Reynolds said. “70 years of history there, you could go anywhere.”
