‘Green Lantern 2′ Moving Ahead Despite Box Office Drop

Published 3 years ago by , Updated September 18th, 2012 at 8:22 am,

[Not So Fast! Seems Green Lantern 2 isn't so certain after all. Details HERE]

Green Lantern has received fairly poor reviews – it’s at 26% on Rotten Tomatoes – and it ranked third at the box office this past weekend after Bad Teacher. To say that the film has been a disappointment for Warner Bros. is a bit of an understatement.

Yet, despite all of that, the studio is apparently moving forward with Green Lantern 2.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources at Warner Bros. have called Green Lantern a “slight disappointment,” which, in executive speak, means it’s an enormous disappointment. Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution, has said on record that the superhero film was expected to experience a monetary drop-off in its second weekend, as most “fanboy films” do.

But Green Lantern didn’t just experience a typical “fanboy film” box office drop-off – it experienced a significant box office drop-off. From $53.2 to $18.4 million, a difference of nearly 66% and enough to allow an R-rated film starring Cameron Diaz to usurp the second place slot.  For a film that by some estimates cost about $300 – this includes a $200 (+) million production budget and one of the most expensive ad pushes in history – this is gloomy news, to say the least.

This wouldn’t be the first time we’ve heard that there would be a sequel to a superhero film, despite that film lacking financial success. For years, people at Warners insisted that Superman Returns would be getting a sequel from Bryan Singer. Five years later and it’s Zack Snyder, not Singer, who is in the process of rebooting the property with The Man of Steel.

On the other hand, Ang Lee’s Hulk received mixed critical reviews before underperforming financially – it remains, to this day, the largest opener to never reach $150 million – and yet it spawned a semi-sequel/reboot in the form of Marvel’s The Incredible Hulk (which actually went on to perform almost exactly as well).

It would be a massive shame to see the potential of Green Lantern as a cinematic property go to waste, so we hope Warners does follow up with a sequel, a reboot, or some kind of se-boot. The audience doesn’t need to see Green Lantern’s origin again. Heck, just briefly show us Hal Jordan’s origin (man is pilot, man-pilot finds dying alien in a desert, man-pilot gets super-duper ring from alien and joins an intergalactic police corps) in the opening credits, a la Spider-Man 2, then get straight to the meat of the film.

Take, for example, The Road Warrior, a sequel that went in a completely different direction from that of its predecessor. It utilized the same character, of course, but had a wholly different style, format, story, and so forth… and went on to out-perform its predecessor in every way imaginable. Who wants to see the filmmakers for a Green Lantern sequel pull a Road Warrior? Anyone?

On a somewhat depressing note, it’s hard not to notice that the opening box office takes for the past three big-budget superhero films (Thor, X-Men: First Class, and Green Lantern) have steadily declined, and that the second week box office drop-offs have steadily increased. Maybe Green Lantern is just performing so poorly because of the bad reviews and word-of-mouth. But what if audiences are legitimately getting sick of superhero films altogether, as they did in the 1990s with Joel Schumacher’s Batman films? It’s up to  Captain America: The First Avenger to break the pattern.

Green Lantern is in theaters now. When we hear more about Green Lantern 2, you’ll be the first to know.

  1. One would expect executives to answer yes to any inquiry on sequels
    for any film still in its first run despite its lackluster performance.
    The admission a sequel is not actively considered would
    reinforce any negative buzz hurting box office.

    It will all come down to final numbers in the end.
    If Green Lantern fails to make enough money
    to justify a sequel no sequel will be made.

  2. They are not doing a sequel to this movie. DC/WB has been taking flak from the time the first trailer was released. Green Lantern fans are a vocal bunch and all this is is a diversion to get as far away from this movie as possible. Reboot in 5 years or Justice League movie.

    • Well, there you have it. Straight from the horses mouth…….no need to discuss it further, this seems to be the bottom line.

    • by golly, that makes alot of sense. i think i shall agree wholeheartedly, quickmud.

      and the flak SR got for that review… maybe, Kofi was right?

  3. Please, thank you and your welcome.

  4. Weird how no one says that on Rotten Tomato that57% of the people that watched it liked it and that its a 3.4 out of 5.

    • It’s fine if you think it’s great but a +65% box office drop on a movie’s second weekend after a so-so opening does not scream great word of mouth.

      Vic

      • The short running time for the film was a red flag.
        The suits were apprehensive of bad word of mouth and
        wanted to get as many showings in as possible opening weekend.

      • Oh i thought it was because Cars 2 opened.

      • Besides im still waiting on The Flash movie so to occupy my time i just bought the 1990 tv series :)

        • i almost bought that today, i want to see it, heard mark hamill plays the trickester in it :)

          • Definitely worth getting…There’s a high cheese factor, but the show is great fun, John Wesley Shipp does a great job as The Flash, and the speed effects (especially for that time and the fact it was a TV show…albeit an expensive one) look very cool.

            (and yes, Mark Hamill does play The Trickster in a wonderfully over-the-top manner)

  5. Out of an audience of 81,847 people that watched it.

  6. The Incredible Hulk was so much better than Ang Lee’s Hulk, a shame that movie didn’t make enough money to ensure an Edward Norton comeback. :(

    Will there be a Green Lantern sequel? I can’t see it happening. Even if they decide to make it, I don’t know that people would want to see it after the failure of the first film – The Incredible Hulk proved that recent memory can be a deterrent.

    Ang Lee’s Hulk was a dismal experience. I can’t say Green Lantern was as dismal (it was more a NORMAL experience), but it wasn’t worth the money I paid to see it.

    • I bought because i watched that year it came on tv, sad it never had a season 2.

  7. Reboot? Yes. Sequel ? Heck no please god no. I want a good GL film finally.

  8. I don’t think people are tired of superhero movies. I think these movies were just ok or good but not great. GL was decent, but the scene editing and pacing seemed sloppy. They could’ve done a lot better. Hal was bouncing between OA and his apartment way too much. Too many people are quick to take signs of people being tired of the genre. Make a great movie like the dark knight or a solid movie like iron man, and they will make big money. I don’t care how many you do. The real problem is lazy writing and directors who don’t care about details. There are plenty of characters. I don’t understand why every film has to be rushed into production.

  9. Warner is making the right choice, lets see some awesome Lantern and other exciting stuff from the comics to screen xD

  10. i work at a movie theatre, and everyone whom sees it says that they liked it and that they “want to see a sequel with that yellow ring” lol. Out of the hundreds of customers i have served since its release, i have only heard 3-4 people say that they didn’t like it, i for one want a sequel that not only gives me the same good movie experience that the first one gave me, but all the critics and GL fans(which i am) can get behind as well.

  11. I very much hope Warner Brothers DOES make a sequel for “Green Lantern”. I enjoyed this first one and firmly believe they can fix whatever problems people found in it (at least to the extent that ANY film can satisfy the viewing public…they’ll, of course, NEVER satisfy everyone) in the sequel.

    Despite what a number of people said on this and other threads, I and many others liked the film because we thought they got a lot of things (at least, important things) RIGHT, not because we were so desperate to want a good film or to have more DC films come to fruition. I think they’ve established a great base here and can easily and effectively (and significantly for those perturbed at this first release) up the ante for the Green Lantern mythos in the next film. They’ll have to fix some things, obviously, but they’ve got a good head start (intentionally, or not) in the fact that Martin Campbell has already stated he’s not returning for the sequel.

    I continue to hold out hope…and WILL be getting this first film for my collection when it’s released on home video.

  12. For those at ScreenRant that didn’t like Green Lantern I challenge them to write a story and see if any studio picks up their idea, which wont happen and is why they write articles on a movie website instead of actually you know….making movies themselves.

    • This is the most idiotic comment and idiotic defense ever. Im not a cook but that dosnt mean I dont know a ****** lasagna when I taste one.

      • Point taken. I’m just saying what makes screenrant right? They bash and bash Green Lantern but give Transformers: Dark of the Moon 4 out of 5 stars and it’s a got a 38% on rottentomatoes, does that make screenrant right and the 62% on rottentomatoes that didn’t like the movie wrong? It’s a matter of opinion

        • Wait, people can have different opinions than other people on things?!?!?!

          • lol

        • You’re going by RT? Did you see what it has for GL?

    • Haha. This old argument again. Do you have to write this on every Green Lantern article?

      • Considering the fact I’ve posted two comments on this site your statement is flawed because you’re trying to say i post on every Green Lantern article, which i obviously don’t

    • lol @ LK

      way to keep the comments coming!

  13. I’m really getting tired of hearing that because of Green Lantern’s box office numbers people are getting sick of superhero movies. Let’s look at the facts (1) the Xmen franchise has been on shaky ground since X3 and people were leary of another dissapointing film, so it’s box office numbers were weaker because Fox has not delivered a good Xmen film years. (2) Green Lantern is not the most well known hero, the early fan reaction was not good, and finally it’s just not that good a movie. (3) If Captain America doesn’t get number at the box office it is not because people are tired of superheroes it will be because Harry Potter will have opened the week before!!!

    • X-Men 3 sold like gangbusters. As did the following X-Men film, Wolverine: Origins. So I’m not sure you’re logic holds up. I don’t disagree that Green Lantern lack of positive word-of-mouth/reviews didn’t help its numbers — hell, I mention it in the article — but I get the feeling we’re seeing a downturn in audience desire to see superhero films altogether. This doesn’t mean they’ll disappear completely, I just think it means we’re not going to see as many for a while. They’re extremely expensive ventures, so if they’re risky, you’d better believe the studios are going to take a hiatus from them.

      • I said this on another article (I forget which one) but it could also have much to do with money in the viewers pockets as well as word of mouth. With prices rising & more and more hero projects arising less people are wanting to go to the movies to continuously see the sames things over & over in a different format. I myself have cut back exponentially on how many movies I see, I’ve gone from seein 10 within the summer to about 1-3. Hell the last one I saw was Sucker Punch & how long ago was that out. I would have seen GL & very much still want to but I’d much rather save the cash on something else & just wait until it inevitably appears on TV or youtube. If anything movie companies should consider stepping away from super-well known heros or semi-well known, & take more chances with the lesser-known heros. Like when Blade first came out I had no clue who he was (besides the small cameo episodes in the 90′s Spider-Man animated series). Also they need to be able to step more away from the camp factor or “paying homage” to the character & try something grittier, darker, & more realistic. Somewhat like what Nolan’s done with Batman, it’s not completely the same as the cmics but it’s believable. I mean if Batman seems more “badass” than the Punisher who kills his enemies then there’s a problem (opinion based only on the 2004 movie I still have yet to see Warzone). Lastly why not step away from live action completely & start breaking out with more cartoons again not using the well-knowns as a crutch to lean upon, & they don’t have to just be for kids there are many adult that are willing to watch an action cartoon if done right take Spawn as a prime example the movie was meh but the cartoon was pretty damn epic.

  14. By the way i think The Flash is known as much as Superman and Batman. He has had his own tv show and Impulse was on Smallville.

    • No way. He had a failed TV show and Impulse, not Flash, was an occasional character on a cable TV show. On the other hand, Batman and Superman have both supported live-action television shows, animated television shows (several times over!), major feature films, and on. The two don’t compare.

      • Seeing as the Batman show was cancelled yes i would say they were, and most of the Superman shows were cancelled. Why i do agree they have had more shows. But the only show not to eventually get cancelled was Smallville. And yes Impulse later becomes The Flash.

        • 1. What Batman show was canceled? They ended after numerous seasons. They weren’t canceled in the first season like The Flash. The sixties Batman show went on for three years and spawned a movie. The Adventures of Superman ran for six years. Lois and Clark: The Adventures of Superman went on for 4 seasons. Smallville went on for 10. Batman: The Animated Series went on for 4, spawned a second series called the New Adventures of Batman that went on for 2, as well as a Superman series that went on for 4, as well as Batman Beyond and Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.

          2. Impulse became the Flash in the comics, but nobody liked his comic so they killed him after (I believe?) nine issues and returned Wally West to the role.

          • And Adam West said out of his own mouth they got cancelled. You do know shows getting cancelled happens when the show no longer has viewers? And he was also in Infinite Crisis. So point is he did have his own show and was introduced to millions of viewers.

            • If that’s true, then point to you, Pawn65. Regardless, the show lasted three seasons — three entire seasons — and spawned a feature film. Did the Flash series, which was canceled before the first season was even finished, do the same?

              Bart Allen was in a whole lot more than Infinite Crisis (I even very much liked him as Impulse), but that doesn’t make the Flash on par in recognition with Batman and Superman. I also don’t know how being in Infinite Crisis, a comic book crossover few outside of the comic book community (who obviously are familiar with The Flash) are even aware of.

              I see you sort of disregarded everything else I said.

              • No actually the 1960′s Batman movie was the lead into the tv series. I think its preposterous that you dont think people dont know the Flash symbol as well as the Bat and S Shield. True he hasnt been in as much stuff as the other two but that one season was freaking awesome!

                • By the way nice article!

                  • And thanks!

                • No, the movie came out in July 1966. The TV show started in January of the same year. And I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that people don’t know the Flash lightning bolt as well as they do the Bat symbol and Superman’s S. A friend of mine dressed as The Flash a couple of years ago in New York City for Halloween. People thought he was Spider-Man. My girlfriend didn’t know the Flash symbol when we first met. All of these people would recognize the Bat and Superman symbols.

                • Ben is correct. The TV show begat the movie. The movie DID NOT begat the TV show. The Show was a mid season replacement. Became VERY popular very quickly. Then came the movie. I was there. Saw the show’s first run on TV and the movie in the theatre. Yes…I am that old.

                  • Wow never knew that thought it was the other way around but good to know. That show is a reason why Batman is so popular its still in rerun land playing. When i was you in the early 80s i thought it was a new tv show lol. By the way The Flash costume was also in the movie Daddy Daycare. I think it just depends on where your from as to how well its known.

                    • For example, planet Earth.

                  • @ Barry

                    Come to think of it, i think Batman: The Movie which had the 4 villains was the first time i seen Robin. Lol Dang it can’t remember now if it was the movie or tv series.

              • Pawn65 is correct. The Batman TV show WAS cancelled…after 2 and a half seasons. The show’s light shown bright, but burned out quickly. The Flash series ran for one full season. BARRY Allen was the Flash character featured in the show. Allen was the name of the character from the late fifties on when DC rebooted the character, replacing Jay Garrick with Allen…until the character was killed off in THE CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS series. At that point Wally West…who had been Kid Flash, took up the mantle. The TV show came on AFTER Allen was killed off in the Comics. I think the producers thought…correctly…that more fans were familiar with the Allen character.

              • Hey at least it didn’t get shot down before the first episode could air like the Wonder Woman show that was set to release this year. :D

                • That’s true, but then Wonder Woman already had a successful TV series. This one, from the few clips I’ve seen, was beyond abysmal.

                  I want it on the record that I actually really like The Flash. I just don’t think the general public loves/knows of him to the degree that they do Superman, Batman, and…well, even Wonder Woman.

  15. Seen Green Lantern yesterday, and I thought it was awesome.

    • This guy… He knows what he’s talking about. The Green Lantern was a great movie in my opinion, and I would be devastated if Green Lantern 2 didn’t come out. I never even seen the comics, very rarely heard of him… Watched it just because my brother said he was curious about the movie and wanted to watch it with me. Can’t wait till 2 comes out.

  16. An Lo, there was great joy and celebration among the people.

  17. You guys should repost those prerelease interviews and announcements on this movie…I wanna read the makers of this movie and the cast compare it to Star Wars again… I could use a good laugh…but maybe at the screening of the movie for the cast and crew there was a mistake made by the projectionist were he accidentally put Star Wars on instead of The Green Lantern.. Ryan reynolds does share a slight resemblance to Mark Hamill.

  18. Oh, where to begin. People who are saying this was good, obviously saw a different film or gave it a pass just for being a CBM. Yes, the first ten minutes started out good, and then it went completely downhill. There was no chemistry between any of the actors, the scenes were choppy and it had no momentum. Things would just happen with no explanation, almost like they were on a check off list.
    You only get about fifteen minutes at the most of outer space stuff and the villain was annoying and sissified. Anyone saying it was true to the comic must’ve read one that i didn’t. The script was awful and sorely lacking any depth. Ryan Reynolds was well Ryan Reynolds.
    I could go on and on about how bad the whole thing was. All the action scenes were in the trailer and none of it was truly exciting. Things happened in the movie one minute and then the next no one seemed to remember any of it.
    I have a love for comic book movies but this was lame. This was a big disappointment on every level. My advice, wait till it hits the Redbox. I won’t be buying this movie. You can believe the critics on this one, it was a total rip off and waste of time. This movie is lame…

    • “I could go on and on about how bad the whole thing was.”

      Please, Stop.

    • MovieLover35…

      Clearly, we did NOT see the same movie. Those of us who liked the film saw the GOOD version. Obviously. ;) We saw the version that is NOT lame. Thank you for pointing out that two different films must have been released into theaters. Now, people just need to see the version WE saw.

    • MovieLover35 you could not have said things any better because the Green Lantern had one thing happening one minute and then its like it never happened because it becomes no big deal. FOR EXAMPLE, a scientist head swelling is a pretty big freagging deal alone!!! and to have his love ones like a father show no type of emotion on the matter not even look a little worried, effected or bothered by his son swollen dome is a very poor display of acting and a poor display of character depth it was bad acting. The scientist eyes turns yellow and hes not even freaked out a little not even after seeing it happening through a mirror (this screams unbelievable, witch screams this cant be happening, witch screams unrealistic) and this is why the green lantern didn’t work

      • As I said to MovieLover35, clearly, we did NOT see the same film. In the “Green Lantern” I saw, the facial expressions and emotional responses by Waller and the senator were spot-on, considering what they knew and their respective personalities (at least, what we saw of them). The senator, if you’ll recall, would not have shown tenderness ANYWAY…he was cold and calculating AND disappointed in his son.

        As for Hector, he was possessed by a fear entity, true, but that meant his reactions were simply NOT going to be purely his own. From that point in the classroom (the scene with the slacker student), his confidence (and personality) was already altering.

        “Green Lantern” worked quite well…if only it had been LONGER, so it would not have felt so rushed.

    • I dont think we saw the same movie either, the one I saw was called Green Lantern. It was great fun. Everything in that film actually made sense, moved at a solid clip, and was as true to the modern interpretation of the character, if not more so, than any other cbm I’ve seen in the last couple years.

      Everyone else I know personally who have actually seen the movie have generally shared my opinion of it. In fact the only place I’ve heard anything negative about it has been from the clowns on the internet who spend a lot of time talking about things they don’t like for whatever reason.

      Hell, even my wife loved it, not liked, but loved it, and she has a strong dislike of Ryan Reynolds AND super hero flicks.

  19. Unfortunately, the sequel isn’t moving ahead just yet :http://www.killerfilm.com/articles-2/read/green-lantern-sequel-still-up-in-the-air-78514

    • Either way Im happy I got to see GL on screen and if there is no sequel they could at least give us the “proper” cut with the home video release.

      • I really really hope for your sake there is a longer directors cut lol. You have that built up so much in your head right now that if there isnt, you may jump off a bridge.

        • Lol I take it you’ve seen my recent comments lol but yea the way the movie was chopped up with obvious parts missing they really should give us a proper cut or deleted scenes at least, they owe us that much for interfering.In any event I have MOS and TDKR to look forward to next year so I won’t be that disappointed if there isn’t any.

  20. Well, I saw the same one everyone else did, just guess I was sober. But maybe some alcohol or smoking something would’ve helped. You’re entitled to your opinion, as well as am I. In truth, I’m not the only one who feels this way. It was a good movie if your 12 years old. If there is another version, please tell me. Because the movie I saw was totally wack. I’m neither Marvel, DC or a fanboy, so that has nothing to do with it. I guess Nolan’s Batman films upped the bar. Just cause it’s a comic book movie is no excuse for a crap script and poor direction. Maybe the problem is that Martin Campbell was the wrong director for this film. It could’ve been compelling and impressive, but it wasn’t, it was very dull and nothing flowed very well. The intergalactic stuff the trailer showed was a joke and the sides character barely had any screen time. The corps doesn’t even help an untrained Lantern deal with the biggest threat they ever faced at the end, really. You guys gotta realize, this wasn’t written by fans of The Green Lantern comic, it was some lame television writers who obviously had no respect or ideal of the character. I’ll give props where it’s due and this was just a bad movie and you can’t disguise it just by using some fancy CGI and expect everyone to fall for it. Maybe it’s just the hair on my chest, but it takes more than what I saw to impress me and I’m forgiving to allot of stuff. If you don’t have a good story, everything else falters. Even the cartoons movies were better than this. Some of you guys should be pissed for them making such a crap movie. The character deserved a hell of allot better. Guess some of you guys won’t see it till the day Reynolds comes out and admits how disappointed he is about the film. Once again, just my opinion.

  22. I loved this movie and really hope a sequel is in the works. I really dont understand all the negative comments about this movie. No explanation will work so dont try. The movie was no oscar winner but it was a great summer, action, comic flic. I think some of you have forgotten what it means to have fun at the movies.

  23. Heard rumors the movie might be 10 mins longer in Australia. Again just a rumor. Anyone else heard something like this?

    • SCREENRANT!!!!!…..send someone to investigate…armed only with a stopwatch and snickerdoodles.

  24. I think they should do a reboot for this crapfest of a movie instead of a sequel. Get Sam Raimi to direct and three or four relatively known stars to be in it…like Kirstin Dunst, James Franco, that Tobey Maguire kid and J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson.

    • No, a sequel of this quite enjoyable film will be just fine…”SpiderMan” cast not needed. :)

  25. *raises eyebrow* @ suggested cast.

    Well if Raimi does a GL movie could be interesting.

    • Rao…

      You know Marlboro was just trying (TRYING being the key word) to be funny…?

  26. Yea I know dude. Left out the ‘:P’ icon that would’ve made mine sarcastic.

    But really, Raimi could do a good job :P

    • I had hoped so…but without the little smiley, I wasn’t completely certain. ;)

  27. I thought Green Lantern was a good movie and I’d definitely go see a sequel.

  28. I always thought the Golden Age Green Lantern was the better choice for making a film. His origin was simple yet mysterious, and there’s no need to fill in extensive backstory about the Green Lantern Corps, Guardians, Parallax, the color yellow, or any such nonsense. Hal Jordan is definitively the more interesting character, but behind that status sits almost 50 years of character development in comics–you can’t just glibly toss that together into a 2-hour film. A better approach for a Jordan lantern would have been to skip the origin altogether, just start the film in medias res and drop in the really important points as the film goes along.

  29. I thought Green Lantern was a good fun film and one that id been looking forward to see. Ryan Reynolds just grew on me as Hal alias Green Lantern and Mark Strong was super as Sinestro. It may not have been a masterpiece but it was still worth seeing Mark as Sinestro and Ryan as Hal. That as well as some pretty cool effects i cant wait to see a sequel, as we can see more of the Mythos brought in. So guys give it more of a chance dont be so ready to bash something first time around look beyond and your see the unique Philosophy behind this story, the Spirituality is so rich like the Material of Green Lantern so dont give up on it guys. It would be great to see Sinestro go yellow and possibley to add Guy Gardener or John Stewart not to mention Alan Scott into it. It could be fantastic am also looking forward to seeing Captain America soon, but for now i say go Green Lantern. All the best Glenn
