However, the project that came about in large part because of the success of The Proposal quickly poured cold water on that. 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.

I will walk away from this if you even think that you can make a Deadpool movie with me.’ And he said, ‘Unfortunately, no, I don’t think that that’s gonna happen.’ So I went off and did Green Lantern.”
