I don't think it was misunderstood, I think people just have lower tolerance for shitty comic book movies. And I apologize, Green Lantern had one redeeming factor and that was Mark Strong as Sinestro, though, he was terribly underused. I don't want to make this a Green Lantern argument in a Superman' thread, but I think Green Lantern could learn a lot from Superman since they're partially similar with the whole person feeling alone in a strange world that doesn't necessarily want them. I think if the Green Lantern wasn't compared to things like Star Wars during production, I wouldn't have had such high expectations. Unfortunately, I felt like I wasted an hour and a half and $10 on a movie I could have easily waited for to come on late night tv.
