Male Speaker: Ryan, how close is big screen, Hal Jordon to comic book Hal Jordon?
Ryan Reynolds: I love you sure by the way. How close is big screen, Hal Jordan to comic book, Hal Jordon very close. This is an original story as well, so I think it’s very close to secret origins. I worked on as well, and you know but I think the fans that I heard really happy there is now way gloves but aside from now, we've departed in a very few ways from the source material.
Male Speaker: How do you feel to do the oath for the first time?
Ryan Reynolds: It was nerve wracking, you know, it was little nerve wracking oath and I remember when I read -- this been you know, re-writes and re-drats and sometimes different job dialogue is transcribed by people and somebody wrote it down wrong and nobody caught it, at the last minute I did I was like “you cannot get the oath wrong, this is were the meaning about, this is where they will murder you.” So -- but no, it was amazing for first time so I can make rather people to hear it as well.
Female Speaker: In a convention of superheroes, what do you think makes Green Lantern?
Ryan Reynolds: You know, I think it's the Green Lanterns real super power is something that I think everybody can relate to him and its grappling and dealing with fear everyday and the reasons why he was chosen, you know he have this kind of cocky argent hon-solo type who is his extraordinary gift and what I think is more interesting about it, it is a humble -- it actually does the exact, obviously you might think it would do. And the reason he has given this is -- he is able to overcome fear, fearless, its that courage, he has courage and this is a big distinction, one is crazy I mean fearless and then the other one is very human and that's what makes in the greatest Green Lantern I think that's something that kids, adults, alike are going to love about it.
