When news came out that Ryan Reynolds was going to star in the upcoming Green Lantern film, many fans (including some of us here at Screen Rant) wondered whether Reynolds would be able to manage the double duty of playing Hal Jordan and Deadpool at the same time. Well, the creators behind the hilarious “I’m a Marvel…and I’m a DC” web series asked the same question.
Check out the video below.
If you haven’t seen the “I’m a Marvel…and I’m a DC” web series before, stop what you’re doing right now and head to the YouTube channel of ItsJustSomeRandomGuy. Modeled after the famous “I’m a Mac… and I’m a PC” ads, the Marvel/DC videos combine equal parts dry humor and fanboy nerdiness into ridiculously funny two minute episodes. Some of the previous characters featured in the videos include Spiderman, Superman, Hellboy, The Hulk, and Rorschach. My personal favorite involves Iron Man and Batman.
While the Green Lantern/Deadpool video was made for laughs (“Bet you never met anyone with a yellow inner monologue before… BAM!”), it raises some interesting questions about Reynolds’ involvement in the franchises. While I doubt Reynolds will run into any problems initially, what happens if Deadpool or Green Lantern spin off into their own multi-picture franchise? Will Reynolds be able to sustain both roles? Let us know what you think in the comments.
