2011’s Green Lantern was a monstrosity in so many ways it literally hurts to remember what went on in that movie. If we really – really – had to find something good to say about the film, it would be that it led to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively getting married, and it gave us a look at how much comedic potential was wasted when they cast Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi as Reynolds’ BFF.
However it looks like all that promise will get a second chance because Waititi will be joining Reynolds’ new film, Free Guy.
Now as for whether Waititi will be Reynolds’ fellow quipping partner in the film, well, it remains to be seen because we have no idea who is playing who yet. Actually, we have almost no details about the movie at all.
All we know so far is that Free Guy is about a guy played by Reynolds who discovers he is actually a background character in a violent video game.
The premise of Free Guy is completely bonkers but we’re suddenly super keen for it now that Reynolds and Waititi are teaming up again since there’s potential for the pair to be film’s next great comedic duo. At the very least we’re expecting an overabundance of quips and banter from the two. I mean, who doesn’t want to see Korg verbally spar with Deadpool?
We’re still about a year or two away at least from seeing anything from the film let alone a release date so we’ll just leave you with one of the few tolerable scenes from Green Lantern that happens to feature both Reynolds and Waititi.
We don’t want to be the only ones who had to put our poor memories through remembering Green Lantern after all.
