Captain Excellent?

Wow. Even with the information superhighway running right into my own home, stuff manages to get by me. Take the movie Paper Man. I knew nothing about it at all. The first I heard of it was when I opened my Entertainment Weekly this afternoon and found a small picture of Jeff Daniels and Ryan Reynolds tucked away in the movies section.

This movie is about a failed novelist who has a superhero as some kind of imaginary friend. That's all I know. Obviously it's not a major release.

But it's got Ryan "Mr. Scarlett Johansson" Reynolds in it playing yet another superhero, Captain Excellent. He played Wade Wilson pre-Deadpool in the Wolverine movie, and he's filming the Green Lantern movie. Of course, he's built like a lean superhero, so its no surprise he's typecast. What? You think I can't notice this? In the EW Iron Man 2 interview, even Jon Favreau notices. He eggs on Scar-Jo saying, "And then there's your husband Ryan Reynolds -- you could do your laundry on his tummy."

She answers, "And we do..." The guy's cut. There's no denying it.

Yes, rumor has it that's the Reynolds Green Lantern uniform.
