Is Ryan Reynolds Returning as Green Lantern on ‘Arrow’ Season 2?

Next week’s Season One finale features a nod to the 2011 ‘Green Lantern’ movie, as Arrow tries to stop an explosion on a Ferris airliner.

The CW Network series Arrow is considering plans to bring another emerald-clad superhero onto the show, as Ryan Reynolds may reprise his role as Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern.

The upcoming season finale features Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) trying to stop Fyers (Sebastian Dunn) from blowing up a Ferris Air jetliner. Here's what executive producer Marc Guggenheim had to say about the Ferris Air reference from the 2011 Green Lantern movie .

"If all goes according to plan, when you see the Ferris Air logo later in the season, it will be the same logo that we established in the movie. I like tips of the hat."

Marc Guggenheim, along with the series' co-creator Greg Berlanti, wrote the screenplay for the 2011 movie Green Lantern, which starred Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern and Blake Lively as Carol Ferris.

When asked about both Hal Jordan or Carol Ferris making an appearance, the executive producer wouldn't say one way or another, but did hint that he may bring Ryan Reynolds back.

"I would never say never. It's certainly something that we've talked about. As with all DC characters, we have to figure out a way for those characters to fit within our Arrow universe. But when you consider the importance that Hal Jordan plays in the Green Arrow comics, it's certainly one of those names that we've discussed a great deal. I have Ryan Reynolds' phone number around here somewhere."

There are only two more episodes left in Season 1 of Arrow, with "Darkness on the Edge of Town" airing tonight, May 8th, and "Sacrifice" closing out the season on Wednesday, May 15th on The CW Network. We reported back in February that The CW picked up Arrow for Season 2.

    nooooo, as stated before the show came out there will be no characters with superpowers of any kind throughout the show(however long it may last). The writers were interviewed and many people asked if there would be superheros in the show like superman, green lantern, speedy and black canary as many people were wondering if it would be similar to Smallville and the writers said we do not want the show to be filled with people who have superpowers as it would change the dynamic of the show and the story base we have planned for it.

    Mostly everything about Arrow is great. I feel DC should actually include this into their DC Cinematic Universe. It makes perfect sense. Some B to C level heroes go on TV and we get A to B list movies. The only bad thing is the character of Laurel. It obvious there is nothing about her that says Black Canary except for the name. That is the only negative about this universe. Unless she somehow gains her abilities later on but again, this world of Arrow hasn't displayed any metahuman elements. @Angel-Gonzalez The Huntress as Batman's daughter has always been kind of sketchy and the world of Arrow has already established their Huntress as the Helena Bertinelli version seeing as how her whole story arc is about killing her mob boss father. Besides, that would make Bruce too old. He should be closer to Oliver in age. The Helena Wayne character in the new comics is from another Earth and is disguising herself as Helena Bertinelli

    It would be very interesting but what I am looking forward to most is when Roy Harper becomes Speedy. Green Lantern would be a bonus and it will also increase the ratings big time and I have watched Arrow from day one. CW has a great path unlike NBC who jacked up the Knight Rider TV series and killed the show. I just want to know when Batman will show up. Huntress was there and I think a tie in with Oliver and Bruce Wayne looking for his daughter would be a plus.

    While not likely, it could go a long way in rehabilitating the GL character, not to mention give Reynolds a chance to prove he still wants the Hal Jordan role. He was not the issue of the film, and shouldn't be forced out of the role, or give up too early, because dumbsh*t writers couldn't cobble a decent script together, even though it was all there for the making of something great.

    The budget for this series would have to sky rocket if this were true. Unless he just walks in a says some stupid line about arrows.

    Love this show, and if Ryan Reynolds made a appearance as the Green Lantern that would be pretty f*cking cool. If its done then it will be like Nick Furry appearing at the end of the first Iron Man. Marvel has already tied it movies together, now its time for DC to do the same!

    It would actually be really f*cking nice. A great way to introduce a possible sequel that might be done the right way and also a nice way to tie together the franchise a bit more.
    #StephenAmellForJusticeLeague , seriously he's an amazing actor and he portrays Queen brilliantly.
