Ryan Reynolds has revealed that the special effects in his new film Green Lantern were so good they almost moved him to tears.

The actor, who plays the lead role in the superhero flick, spent the majority of the shoot in front of a blue screen and said the end result was "mind-blowing".

"I've never been a part of anything like that. It was a feat of engineering, unto itself. That was pretty spectacular, that first time. I saw it in 3D as well, and I was practically weeping. It was pretty incredible," he told Collider.

"To see these immensely talented artists, who are world builders, create this universe around me, that I'm interacting with in a very real way, was mind-blowing."

The Proposal star appears alongside Gossip Girl star Blake Lively and Peter Sarsgaard in the film, based on the popular DC Comics character.

And Ryan joked that his next superhero role would surprise fans.

"By 2014, I'm going to do Wonder Woman, but after that, I think I'm gonna hang up the lasso and the short, short shorts," he quipped.
