One fan on X mentioned that the Drop Zone actor was the last person that Reynolds wanted in his movie. Another mentioned that they heavily doubted the scoop. One fan wanted proof that Snipes even hinted that he would appear in the Green Lantern star’s film. One comment mentioned that this was not even remotely possible, while another mentioned that the two actors clearly didn’t want to be on a set together. Some fan reactions read:
