Rumors even curtailed that Reynolds was going to come back for the role had Zack Snyder still been a part of the franchise. To this, Gunn very simply replied with the fact of how that was never going to happen and Ryan Reynolds is far from interested in returning as the character. Especially after he has openly mocked his role and the movie as well. He told the fans that Green Lantern is not a priority for him and neither for the actor, who is extremely happy to play the part of Wade Wilson successfully.
