Ryan Reynolds is dishing out some more dirt on his upcoming role in Green Lantern. In a recent interview with MTV, he revealed that the film won’t be an overwhelming origin story that dwells upon Hal Jordan’s transformation into the Green Lantern.

“It is [an origin story] to a certain degree, but it’s not a labored origin story, where the movie [truly] begins in the third act,” said Reynolds. “The movie starts when it starts. We find out Hal is the guy fairly early on, and the adventure begins.”

That’s comforting knowledge for me. Though I love a good origin story — and how is receiving a powerful ring from an alien and being named a Green Lantern not a great one? — focusing on it in a film can become a risk. After all, if the superhero’s early life story drags on too long, that leaves little time for superhero antics.

But just because we’re not getting a traditional origin story, doesn’t mean we’re not seeing a lot of Hal Jordon.

“I think you walk away from this first film, and the moments that you remember and the moments that mean so much to you, not unlike Iron Man, are the moments where the guy’s not in the suit,” Reynolds explained.
