"Hot rumour! #greenlantern update! The name I keep hearing & floating around, is Chris Pine for Hal Jordan," so read his Instagram post.
"Yes, Captain Kirk. Again, this is still just a rumour hence unconfirmed. Been hunting this one for a while so the search is still ongoing. How do you guys feel about it, IF again a big IF, it is indeed true? #HalJordan #JUSTICELEAGUE #DC #DCCU #batmanvsuperman #Warners."
Ryan Reynolds previously played the DC Comics superhero Hal Jordan/Green Lantern in the 2001 big screen feature 'Green Lantern'. Actors like Tyrese Gibson and Common have recently been quoted as saying they would love to play the superhero on screen.
The new 'Green Lantern' film is currently scheduled to open in 2020.
