Ryan Reynolds found success in the superhero genre with Deadpool, but before he became the Merc with the Mask, he played Hal Jordan, a.k.a. The Green Lantern. The 2016 film also saw Green Lantern jokes, including making fun of his suit's animated look.

The Deadpool star recently took it to Instagram to make fun of the Green Lantern mask.


"Early prototype for the Green Lantern mask. People could tell it was an old tissue, so we went with a CGI version," Ryan Reynolds wrote.

The photo shows Reynolds with tissues over his face with his glasses holding the paper in place.

Reynolds played Green Lantern in the 2011 film which only made $219 at the box office and got a 26% score at Rotten Tomatoes.

The Green Lantern movie's credited writers have come out and said that the version on screen was not what they wrote.

"But Green Lantern is a great one to point to. I got fired from that movie as a writer and as a director, and yet my name was all over it," saidGreg Berlanti in 2016. "I still get blamed for it, even though I had nothing to do with the finished product. As Marc Guggenheim always says, there's a very Google-able script that we did write that was not executed that I still stand by. But at the time, I thought, 'Oh God, that noose will hang around my neck my whole life.

Warner Bros. is developing a Green Lantern Corps film with Man of Steel Dark Knight writer David S. Goyer.

Deadpool 2 is set to release in theaters on May 18, 2018.
