Green Lantern was a both a critical and box-office disappointment. It cost $200 million to make (not counting marketing costs) and only earned $117 million domestically and $103.3 million overseas for a worldwide total of $219.9 million. The film arrives on Blu-ray and DVD this Friday, so it may sell well. THR reports that DC's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is still hopeful for a sequel.
Here is what he had to say at the New York Comic Con:
"There is the hope that we will eventually see one. Obviously, you want it to be as big as Titanic. I hope that the character gets another film, and it will be live-action again - I guarantee."
He goes on to say:
"there was a lot of really good stuff in the movie and that with the new animated series, Green Lantern is only going to get bigger."
I really did not care for the first film, it had great effects but that is about it. I agree that the new animated series will be a big hit, but will hold out on hopes for a sequel until I see how the Blu-ray and DVD sales turn out. What are your thoughts?
