GREEN LANTERN 2 will be Edgier and Darker
Green Lantern ended up being a disappointment for most of the fans, it was a fun film, but ultimately the script, story and character development wasn't really all that good. Warner Bros. spent $200 million dollars making the film but so far has only made $154 million so far world wide. Regardless of how much this film has made it looks like the studio wants to move forward with a sequel, and they are going to make a few changes to the property in hopes that a sequel will have better success. In a recent interview with Warner Bros. film group president Jeff Robinov had this to say,
We had a decent opening so we learned there is an audience. To go forward we need to make it a little edgier and darker with more emphasis on action…. And we have to find a way to balance the time the movie spends in space versus on Earth.
I honestly don't believe it's a matter of being darker, edgier and having more action. It all comes down to a good script and a solid story. If they have that the movie will more likely end up being a better film. Unfortunately they just dropped the ball of the property.
Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, who all worked on the script for the original film are working on the sequel, and have already turned in a story outline which will most likely go through several different changes, they may even start over from scratch. Maybe the studio should hired some new writers to tackle the property? I'm just saying, that could probably be the best thing for the project. One thing is for sure, they will be brining on a new director.
What do you all think about the plans for a Green Lantern 2?
