Hold your horses there, partner. While Reynolds does have quite the affection for comic book roles, this isn't quite GREEN LANTERN, DEADPOOL, BLADE or the recently announced R.I.P.D.

PAPER MAN stars Reynolds as the bleached blonde superhero Captain Excellent, a figment of imagination for a past-his-prime writer named Richard (Jeff Daniels). The film also features Emma Stone (ZOMBIELAND) as a 17-year-old girl from Long Island who ends up befriending the lonely author. Lisa Kudrow and Kieran Culkin also star. The film had its premiere last year at the Los Angeles Film Festival. It gets a limited release starting April 23rd.

PAPER MAN was written and directed by Kieran and Michele Mulroney, brother and sister-in-law to actor Dermot Mulroney. Interestingly enough, Dermont played the voice of the Green Lantern in The Batman animated series from 2008. Whatta ya know?

Check out the trailer for PAPER MAN after the jump!
