More often then not, when an actor signs on to a comic book movie, they usually go in knowing little to nothing about the source material. Not in Ryan Reynolds‘ case. The man literally demanded rewrites for Green Lantern after finding an error in the Green Lantern Oath, officially making him the single sexiest nerd in existence. My apologies to other sexy nerds; you just can’t compete with that.
He immediately stepped in to alert bosses to the mistake – because he knew fans of the original comic book would “murder” them if they got it wrong. Reynolds tells Fandango.com, “I remember when I read… and there’s been rewrites and redrafts and sometimes different dialogue is transcribed by people… and somebody wrote it down wrong. Nobody caught it and at the last minute I did.
“(I told them) ‘You Cannot get the Oath wrong! We had a meeting about this… this is where (the fans) will murder you.’ But it was amazing finally saying it for the first time.” SOURCE
You know, it wasn’t enough that he was gorgeous, or that he would be essentially naked throughout the entire movie, but now you’re telling me he’s also a huge nerd? My GOD, it’s like he’s doing everything in his power to make himself nerdgasm material. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go count the days until this movie comes out.
