According to the Washington Post, he was so unhappy with the movie, despite never having seen it, that he fired his agent afterward. He told Conan O’Brien that he had turned down the role seven times. It “just wasn’t my kind of film,” he said, adding it “made me very uncomfortable.”

Ryan has been vocal about how he felt the movie did not work.

“With Green Lantern, I don’t think anyone ever figured out exactly what it was. It also fell victim to the process in Hollywood which is like poster first, release date second, script last. At the time, it was a huge opportunity for me so I was excited to try and take part in it,” he said in 2016.

“I’ve been there in that position as an actor where you do something that doesn’t quite work. And I really wish someone from a gin company called me right after Green Lantern and was like, ‘Hey, I got something funny you can do as an answer to that!’” he later added to Jimmy Fallon.
