So how about those Green Lantern sequels now?

06.20.2011

GREEN LANTERN may have won the weekend box office, but the thing is a critical disaster, reaching only a 26% on Rotten Tomatoes. I didn't think it was great by any means, but was it really that far a cry from the 77% rated THOR?

I thought that film did some things better (Asgard and the costumes were stunning) but GREEN LANTERN's Reynolds and Lively's characters seemed more dimensional to me than THOR's Hemsworth and Portman. But that's a debate for the comment section, as the question now remains, despite the critical destruction, will there be more LANTERN films on the horizon?

While the movie was still filming, we heard plans about a trilogy, and the end of this movie certainly leads into a sequel. DC writer and CCO Geoff Johns recently spoke to Fast Company, and says he expects not only more LANTERN films, but MANY more.

"There are definitely plans for more Green Lantern films. I would hope it's more than a trilogy. I think Green Lantern has a lot of movies in it, a lot of stories to tell."

Despite being one of the worst reviewed superhero films since CATWOMAN or ELEKTRA (for reference, both HULK movies were 60%+), the real test comes with how much money the film makes worldwide. And if something like GI JOE can manage a sequel, I have to imagine that GREEN LANTERN will be getting at least one as well.

Could they make things better for future installments? Did you hate it as much as the critics?

Extra Tidbit: I thought the CGI was hit or miss. I didn't mind the costume, but Parallax looked ridiculous.

the only hate i hear for Green Lantern is from some critics, and what i'm assuming are some trolling fanboys. i haven't seen it, but i'm gonna give it a chance, could be a good Rifftrax later on.

I honestly don't understand the critical hate. It needed more time with the Lantern Corps and a lot less time dicking around on Earth, but it's a decent, fun superhero flick. I'd see a second one now that the emo-drama is out of the way (hopefully).

I have a couple things to say....nathan fillion should of been hal! No cgi suit! In fact only use cgi when needed! Get rid of blake and stop compareing her role in this to portmans in thor! Last chris hensworths performance as thor was very spot on when it came to being the stubborn snob prince that he was in the comics.... When he got angry he showed it! Ryan just played van wilder in a green jump suit!

What's funny (or sad) about Green Lantern is that when ever the action is on earth it looks like a cgi suit floating around. When the action is Oa it looks like a Ryan Reynolds head floating is cgi.

Either way, it looked funny has hell and didn't help the movie at all.

I hope for no sequel and have Ryan be the Flash, the movie they should have made in the first place.

Yes, it IS a far cry from Thor and it's not even debatable. Thor is a fun, well written gem and Green Lantern is a convoluted mess that has rightfully received venom from every film critic. Even those 26% didn't have very nice things to say. Bench those Lantern sequel ideas and move on to the Flash, WB.

Wow

I can't believe you said that Reynolds and Lively were more dimensional than Portman and Hemsworth...Every single person I saw Lantern with commented on how fake the relationship seemed, how every time they were on screen it stopped the movie cold, and how terrible an actress Lively is. I'm sorry, but with that, there's really no comparison. Thor > Green Lantern, by a long shot. And I did enjoy Lantern, but Thor is a better film.

Ditch Campbell and the writing crew. Keep the threat on Earth. Ditch the majority of the corps now that the muddled origin flick is out of the way.

I'd watch a sequel if Hal had a better arc and the story were told better. I thought that the VFX were better than expected on this one, and the performances were pretty solid. That being said, a new crew behind this one could really deliver something great.

I think in the end, the makers of this movie, need to figure out what worked and what didnt, and go from there. I think you cut out alot of the CGI, give Green Lantern a more believable suit and so on and so forth.
If this movie is given a sequel and that is BAD, then you end it there and move on. Then maybe wait a few years for another remake.

Green Lantern is this years Iron Man 2. Not great films and with some flaws, but not as bad as some people made them out to be. I hope this gets a seqeul. Besides, every now and again its good to say "screw you" to the critics b/c I enjoyed a film they snubbed their noses at, and this year its Green Lantern for me. This movie was just as good as Thor (which were both just a little better than ok).

*SPOILERS*

I think a lot of the bad reviews were given by folks who like me don't care for the crappy design of the radioactive bacon suit.

But I think the reality is that it's not terrible, not fantastic, but somewhere in the middle.

Some things they did really well. Some of the off world sequences looked so much like a 50's technicolor sci-fi flick, and I thought that approach was really appropriate for the material. And the green effects made with the ring looked great, like the giant green

However, besides the goofy suit, the primary villains seemed to be a giant gaseous octopus and a cracked out Ron Jeremy. One would think they could do better.

In any case, many reviews say that it was kind of a mess and I tend to agree, but I get the sense that much was cut out of the movie, and might play better with additional footage.

All in all, would I want to see a sequel?

Meh.

Although this was okay, I think I'd lean towards a reboot.

Sinestro wasn't done well at all.

Can't say I'm too excited for any sequels with Sinestro as the villain. He wasn't written well at all. He was never really Hal's mentor, and came off as just another Green Lantern Corps. member when he should of been anything but. The Green Lantern Corps. creating Sinestro his yellow power ring was laughable.

GI Joe got a sequel because it made money (Cost 150 million, made 300 worldwide). If Green Lantern costs 200 million like it was reported, it will be doing well if it breaks even. I can't see there being a sequel for this which is a shame because I wanted to see Blake Lively whore it up as silk spectre

Yeah I just saw it and I don't get why it's being destroyed review-wise. It's not even close to being as bad as critics are making it out to be. The best super-hero movie this year? No, but it's not bad and I find it ridiculous that it's among the ranks of Catwoman and Elecktra. I'd really like to see what they do with sequels now that they've established the character.

Sinestro as a Villian?

Making Sinestro not the villain was one of the nice things they did in this movie. The main villian should never been the focus of the first movie. It should be an origin for the Hero and maybe a lite setup for the main villain. It's too obvious and an insult to the fans that knows there more to see than 2 characters

I have to say I went to go see this yesterday, and found myself bored to tears. Blake Lively was horrid, and it felt like Reynolds was just going through the motions. The visual effects were cool, but the script needed work ... big time. I hope they can fix the franchise with number 2. But things need to change to make it a quality film.

Awful movie...

Wait 2 years and the cast and crew will tell you themselves just how bad the movie is. Its a shame, its a disaster, but you can't say this is a good or even decent movie and actually expect your opinion to matter. This is made for TV quality, not what you should get for 12$ at the multiplex and that supposedly cost 200$ million dollars to produce.

I really hope they stop here. I mean they should have started with Sinestro being the villain. Parallax should have come later in the sequels. They kind of screwed the pooch on this one. I mean he already defeated his most powerful enemy... Sinestro is nothing in the comics compared to Parallax.

Oh and did anyone else love how Sinestro has that huge conference with every member of the corp saying they need to fight the monster and then it cuts to like only 10 members going with him lol...

But from what I read so far, most it flaws are because of the script and specially the editing. There is a lot of potential in the characters and I like Reynolds, Strong and Lively, so I would love to see sequels where they can develope them...I hope WB will give at least one sequel a chance!

Improvements

The GL character is worthy of a sequel. This movie did have flaws (I'm not going to repeat myself or anyone else that made the same observations), and I think RR did a good job of playing Hal Jordan. The next movie should not be rushed, Blake Lively should be shitcanned from the movie and the premise of GL is basically a "space cop" character, situated in space. More of the movie should revolve around OA and have more of the space theme revolving around it. The amount of the story should

More of the movie should revolve around OA and have more of the space theme revolving around it. The amount of the story should not have been compressed into the first movie, but left itself open to the trilogy line.

Again: I liked GL, and I don't think that it deserved to be gutted by so may critics. Bring it on!

why the eff does every effing comic movie have to have a love interest/plot? and i have no clue why they needed to include hammond. he's a dumb character and he took away from what should have been time spent on fleshing out the corps.

Wasn't that bad

I would love to see sequels. Although it wasn't a great film, it was good. It definitely could have been better. I think now that they've introduced the universe, a sequel could flesh out the characters more and focus more on the story.

No way in hell did GL deserve a 25% on RT. This film was so much better than the laundry list of terrible comic book movies that have come out in the last decade. It wasn't a great film by any means but it was certainly worthy of a 7/10 and was a fun time @ the movies.

I respectfully disagree

the characters in Green Lantern were so bland. Hal Jordon was a cocky jerk with no redeemable actions until he gets the ring(even then it takes awhile) and the girl was a super smart ace pilot / businesswoman / super model. Obviously smart but still unconditionally in love with this jerk. The only character i thought was fleshed out was Hector Hammond and he went down hill after he started to transform. I dont want any Green Lantern sequals if that means taking Ryan Reynolds away from a

Without any complaints about Green Lantern, including Parallax, whom I found to be pretty freaky, and with newfound enthusiasm for the character... I'm psyched for "many more" and I sure hope this one overcomes its critical reception. Funny it's down there with Catwoman and Elektra... I do find Elektra to be the worst new-millennium superhero flick we've yet seen, but I'm in the minority on Catwoman (so much so that as far as I know I pretty much comprise the entire minority) in that I actually

I do understand all the hate, though... and actually before I saw it myself (opening day, no les... what can I say, I was bored...) I did think it looked like utter trash (incidentally I felt the same about GL... hmm, how much of these critical reactions are based on preconceived notions, you think?). Anyway, that was tangential. Yeah, bring on more GL. My butt will be in the seat every time after how much I dug this first one.

I still thought it was a well done movie and as a GL fan would love to see a sequel that expands the world of the story so that all the uninformed in the audience can see more of why this character is truly great. I totally disagree with DarkElfa, this movie was as faithful to the character as it could be and I think the fantastical elements are what turned a lot of people away. I also thought the romance in this movie was a thousand times more believable than the one in Thor.

I agree with bassman on this one. The critics are way to harsh on this movie. I enjoyed it for the most part and other than a few minor things here and there it was pretty cool. The visuals were much better than I thought and I was suspicious about the whole CGI suit. I'd like to see more and I think that Reynolds actually did a good job.
The only thing I can't really comment on is how faithful it was to the comics because Green Lantern is one of the heroes that I don't know alot of details

This is why you shouldnt leave any movie leading to a sequel, because if it fails at the box office and the studio decides to pass up on it, now you an incomplete story and not a whole movie

If it doesn't reach 100 million domestically, it'll get rebooted within 5 years, hopefully learning from the mistakes of this one....

With the frankly dismal box office show and horrible critical bashing, the only way another Green Lantern Film shows up is in reboot form. They had the wrong man and the wrong design from the start and that threw off many, many people.

Had they gone with a more traditional look and stayed faithful to the comics and GL canon, as well as had the good sense to go with the fan favorite, Nathan Fillion, it may have stood more of a chance.

In the end, the just went too far into poor taste in

In the end, the just went too far into poor taste in design, picked the wrong damn actor and tried to cram 10 pounds of shit into a 5 pound bag.

While I think most critics are being way too hard on the film, I would love to see a sequel that improves on the negative aspects of the first.
