    Green Lantern opened reasonably well but held poorly in the box office. It opened $53.1 million in June but failed to live up to the expectation despite the hectic marketing strategy. Critically, the movie also failed! It costs Warner Bros a hefty $200 million to make and so far only grossed about $154 million worldwide (foreign box office is still not fully rolled out yet). To make it all worst, Green Lantern was critically panned. Green Tea Movie felt that the biggest problem with that movie was that it failed to connect the audience with the ridiculous plot that makes no sense. As bad as it is, warner Bros is preparing a sequel, which envisioned and dubbed will be ‘edgier and darker’. More details right after the jump.

    According to LA Times’ Hero Complex, Warner Bros film group President Jeff Robinov is hopeful that there will ne enough audience potential as evident by the decent opening it had. Robinov also talked very briefly about the sequel direction by saying:

    "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."

    As simple as it is to say; Warner Bros has a game plan at the moment to turn Green Lantern around by making it the plot edgier and darker. A while ago, Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim were already working on the script for the sequel but looking at this new direction that the executives are taking, it seems likely that the script may need to be reworked. Certainly, Martin Campbell the director for Green Lantern will not be included in the sequel but we believe that he has an option under the clause to do the second one. Nevertheless, it would not be a surprise to expect a new name to be attached soon. Production for the sequel may begin as soon as 2013.

    LA Times also claimed that Warner Bros was determined to have more projects to be adapted from the DC Comics properties. Now, we know that The Dark Knight Rises will be coming next summer, followed by Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel in June 2013. For the future beyond 2013, Warner Bros is prepping The flash movie, for which Robinov said he studio has “a solid script” for the Scarlet Speedster. For a possible Justice League movie, it seems that the studio remains interested for that idea as well.
