Ryan Reynolds claims Green Lantern was too rich to have been given enough money


Ryan Reynolds thinks Green Lantern turned out as bad as it did because producers kept throwing money at it.

Ryan Reynolds redeemed his superhero credibility with Deadpool, but Green Lantern, in which he starred just five years prior, was a catastrophic flop on both the critical and commercial fronts. Now, its star is pinning its disastrous production down to “too much time, too much money.”

Appearing at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in London, Ryan Reynolds was asked about Green Lantern, a movie that is certainly easy to laugh at. “There were too many people spending too big and when there was a problem, rather than saying, “Okay, let’s stop spending money on special effects and let’s focus on character.” How can we replace this spectacle thing – which isn’t working at any – with something character-based?’ And that just never happened – the thinking wasn’t there to do that… It’s an old school way to look at things. It’s just “Let’s just spend our way through this.”

Ryan Reynolds did some back-peddling, saying Green lantern was at most fun to shoot. Still, “Sitting at that premiere, watching that…Oh my God…The words were “Holy Shit” and “No. Perhaps he escaped from the bathroom window at the premiere? Reynolds previously claimed that he had never seen the final cut of Green Latern. Perhaps he snuck out the bathroom window at the premiere?

Ryan Reynolds has been far from quiet about his dislike for Green Lantern, even tacking on a post-credits scene in Deadpool 2 in which the Merc with a Mouth shoots and kills Reynolds before he can sign on to the movie. He even released his own “cut” of Green Lantern, which ran a breezy 27 seconds…

Green Lantern stands as one of the worst-reviewed movies based on a DC property, sitting in the company of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Superman III.

What do you think of Green Lantern? Is the movie as bad or do you see redeeming qualities to it? Would you like to see Reynolds play the Green Lantern role in DC’s future? Let us know below!

Kumina's CEO Tim Stoop is enthusiastic about the benefits customers gain from integrating StormForge:

"I was impressed how Optimize Live has solved a whole class of customer issues with one solution, reliably and deterministically, while actually allowing resource usage to go down as a whole. We can help customers scale with confidence and cut costs with StormForge without sacrificing user experience. I am really excited about the potential that StormForge brings to the table."

Optimize Live

StormForge Optimize Live applies machine learning to existing Kubernetes metrics to make real-time, actionable recommendations to resource settings for any deployment running in Kubernetes. By optimizing CPU and memory settings, customers can save cloud resources and money, reduce the business risk of poorly performing applications, and get their developers focused on innovating, not tuning their Kubernetes environment. StormForge's Solutions Architect Niels Roetert expresses enthusiasm regarding the benefits afforded by the solution:

"StormForge Optimize Live provides Pod resource right-sizing and can set optimal TargetUtilisation values for Kubernetes HPA to operate on. It does so continuously and without any human effort (configurable) at large scale. This results in resource and cost savings most of the time, when beneficial, resources are actually added to facilitate a better performing and more reliable application, which is a win-win for the application owner either way."
