While Ryan Reynolds’ latest superhero film is enjoying a warmer critical reception, the Deadpool actor hasn’t softened his stance about the time we wore a green and black animated suit.
Appearing on Watch What Happens Live, Reynolds was asked by host Andy Cohen what he would rate Green Lantern on a scale of 1 to 10. Reynolds has expressed his displeasure with the DC Comics stinker before — the first Deadpool trailer started with a pointed Green Lantern dig, after all — so his response shouldn’t come as too big a surprise.
“I would give it a scant, four, maybe. Three or four. It didn’t work. A one, it’s a one,” Reynolds said on the show, finally rounding down to the lowest score he could possible give it. (At the time, EW gave it a C+.)
And though Reynolds may not look back fondly on his Green Lantern adventures, Reynolds has discussed how he met his wife, Blake Lively, on the film, as well as that every good and bad step along the way “all led to” the Deadpool movie becoming a reality.
