Both Ryan Reynolds
and Scarlett Johansson
have big comic book movies to promote. So why was Johansson the only one at this year's Comic-Con?
According to one gossip blog, it's because Reynolds and Johansson, who have famously tried to keep their relationship very not famous, got into a massive tiff right before the trip to San Diego, and a sulky Reynolds declared he wouldn't be on hand to promote the upcoming Green Lantern adaptation.According to FOX411: An insider tells FOX411 “they got in a huge fight just before they were going to Comic Con. It caused such a rift between them that Ryan refused to attend the conference and he told Scarlett she could go alone. She got so angry she threatened to take off her wedding band.”
The article goes on to say that Green Lantern producers are furious at Reynolds for not showing up, while Johansson looks like a champ after doing publicity for her own upcoming Iron Man 2
Of course, this is all anonymously sourced and very, very dubious, so take it all with a grain of a salt. Still, it is true that Reynolds, for whatever reason, didn't make an appearance at what is arguably the best launching pad for geeky properties like Green Lantern
