It looks like Ryan Reynolds will be working overtime as a comic book hero. Reynolds briefly mentioned his role as Wade Wilson in a Deadpool spin-off on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Now we finally have a release date for Green Lantern, DC Comics’ highly-anticipated live-action adaptation of its popular comic book.

The film will release June 17, 2011, putting it in competition with other summer comic blockbusters releasing that same year. We’ll have Spider-Man 4 in May and The First Avenger: Captain America in July. There hasn’t been much news in the way of a storyline for the film. There has also been no confirmation of who a leading villain would be. Either way, the summer of 2011 is shaping up nicely.
