Ryan Reynolds may be best known as the Merc with a Mouth, but he's still remembered for playing Hal Jordan in 2011's Green Lantern, a movie so infamous that Deadpool traveled back in time to kill the actor before he could sign on to the project. That post-credits scene in Deadpool 2 led Warner Bros. to jokingly demand its ring back. However, there's no hard feelings, as the studio demonstrated in its birthday greeting to Reynolds.
The studio's tweet, commemorating the actor's 42nd birthday, parodies the Green Lantern Oath: "In brightest day, in blackest night, you won't want to ignore our party invite."
Regardless of whether the movie deserves to be the butt of jokes, Reynolds at least gave a good performance as Hal Jordan, and Warner Bros. seems to recognize that. And while Reynolds has moved on to play Deadpool, it's at least satisfying to know that he and Warner Bros. are still on good terms.
The studio intends to return to the property with a long-planned Green Lantern Corps film written by Geoff Johns, former president and chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, and co-writer of Wonder Woman 1984.
