Reynolds, speaking to the Los Angeles Times:

“I wandered through the art department, and that’s what sold me, seeing this universe that’s created and the scale of it all. They’re taking the Green Lantern canon from the comics and they’re extending it out into this new medium. Our goal is to make the first superhero who really goes on a ‘Star Wars’ kind of epic journey, and this mythology goes back a lot further than ‘Star Wars.’” … “[Green Lantern] a classic male. Han Solo, who was witty but not really funny, was one of the touchstones.”
