Fear gripped comic book (and hunky-actor) fans yesterday when reports began circulating that Ryan Reynolds had separated his shoulder on the New Orleans set of 'The Green Lantern.' Now, that collective sigh you're hearing is from the news that those reports were erroneous.

According to EW.com, which cites a source close to the film, Scarlet Johansson's hubby only sustained a minor injury while training to play the titular character, but was fine, got right back into character and didn't delay production a bit.

This news comes as a big phew to comic fans and Entertainment Weekly editors/publishers alike. This week's issue of the magazine boasts an "exclusive first look" at the latest DC Comics character to hit the big screen and a very verdant Reynolds graces the cover. (Sorry ladies, unlike on his last EW cover story to promote last summer's 'The Proposal,' he's wearing a shirt.)

Co-starring Blake Lively, Angela Bassett, Tim Robbins and Peter Sarsgaard, the action romp is slated to hit screens Jun. 17, 2011, but fans attending next week's Comic Con in San Diego will be treated to a sneak peek courtesy of Warner Bros.

Reynolds, who will play another comic hero, Wade Wilson a.k.a. Weapon XI, in 2012's 'Deadpool,' will next be seen in the thriller 'Buried,' in which he plays an American truck driver stationed in Iraq who wakes up trapped in a coffin -- where he remains for the duration of the entire movie. Look for the Sundance hit in theaters this October.
