The “Stranger Things” star revealed to GQ UK that he reached out to Reynolds following the “flop” of “Hellboy” and asked Reynolds about how his career survived starring in the critically panned comic book installment “Green Lantern.”
Harbour played the titular antihero in the 2019 remake; Reynolds led the DC film “Green Lantern” in 2011 and infamously live-tweeted his first time watching the film a decade later after having “fear” over how bad it was. The “Deadpool” actor has also spoofed his “Green Lantern” appearance multiple times. So, Reynolds was the right person for Harbour to reach out to once Harbour knew “Hellboy” was off to a rocky start.
“I know him a little bit. I called him and I was like, ‘Hey man, I just need to know something. You know ‘Green Lantern?’ Huge flop for you.
