'That's still in the works. I'm not sure how logistically it works in terms of scheduling, but yeah, I want it to happen,' he reassured fans that his character Deadpool won't disturb Green Lantern.
Deadpool Movie Is Still in Progress, Says Ryan Reynolds

has reassured fans his role as the Green Lantern won't interfere with a movie about his "X-Men" anti-hero "", insisting the mutant spin-off is "still in the works". Reynolds is set to take over the big screen as the Green Lantern this summer, and devotees have expressed fears that plans for a "Deadpool" film will be shelved.

But the hunky actor is confident he will eventually be able to reprise his role as Deadpool, the sword-wielding mercenary he played in "". He tells Britain's Empire magazine, "That's still in the works. I'm not sure how logistically it works in terms of scheduling, but yeah, I want it to happen."

And Reynolds admits he has no qualms about starring in two superhero franchises, adding: "Those two universes are completely different. Superhero movies are so pervasive now in pop culture, I don't look at them as superhero roles as much as just roles. They're such different people. 'Deadpool' is about a guy in a highly militarized shame spiral, 'Green Lantern' is more universally themed."
