Reynolds auditioned for the title role in Green Lantern — another comic book adaptation, this time from DC Comics, Marvel’s archrival — not really expecting to be offered the part. When he was, he says, “I quickly called the executive I knew at Fox who had Deadpool and I said, ‘Look, I am standing at the altar right now, and I’m about to say “I do” to someone else.

In the photo, seen below, Downey Jr. can be seen wearing a shirt with a round hole in the middle. It didn’t take long for people to notice it and put two and two together: It’s the exact shape of an arc reactor, the electromagnet Tony Stark surgically embedded in his chest to keep him […]
