RYAN REYNOLDS TAKES CARE OF THE DETAILS: As far as superhero outfits go, the Green Lantern’s leaves a bit to be desired. “It’s the most nicely appointed superhero you’ll find,” said Ryan Reynolds, who sports a green unitard and matching ring in the new DC Comics-based action flick hitting theaters June 17, before quickly adding: “It’s not actually that comfortable.” Reynolds may get a chance to don another superhero getup, albeit one in red, for Marvel’s “Deadpool,” which is in development with a targeted 2014 release. Jumping from DC Comics’ universe to Marvel’s is akin to moving from the Yankees to the Red Sox. “I might try to unite the foes,” Reynolds said of the chance to portray the mercenary Deadpool with superpowers.
Until the unitard switch, Reynolds looked dapper wearing a Maison Martin Margiela suit and Gentry tie to the dinner that Details hosted on Monday at Los Angeles’ Dominick’s in honor of his flip cover for its June-July issue. Reynolds, who is making his debut on Details’ cover, is far easier on the eyes than the can of shaving cream that was the other option for the back cover heralding the grooming supplement, said Details editor in chief Dan Peres. Looking ahead, Peres said the men’s magazine plans a social media issue in September with a guest editor from the technology world whom he declined to identify. He also said Details’ iPad issue is slated to be released in the fourth quarter.
At the party, Reynolds and Peres were joined by director Judd Apatow, “True Blood” actor Joe Manganiello, and Reynolds’ “The Change-Up” co-stars Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde and Leslie Mann. Wilde got a taste of the media world for her next role as a young writer in the film “The Words,” co-starring Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana.
Reynolds tried switching roles with Peres for a second. After a photograph was snapped of the two along with Bateman, Reynolds reassured the editor, who’s been pulling long nights as the father of two-month-old twins and a toddler, that the picture would turn out well. “I’ll get you Photoshopped,” Reynolds said. “Don’t worry about it.”
