Green Lantern 2 is an upcoming film based on comic books of the same title. It is also a sequel to the first Green Lantern movie.
The first film about the superhero known as Green Lantern came out in 2001. Both critics and casual viewers have criticized the film a lot because of the overuse of special effects.
Despite the mixed acceptance of the movie, the producers from Warner Bros. Entertainment have decided to continue the project. It is a bold move for the film industry known for the commonly accepted tendency to minimize the risks. The first film’s budget was $200 million, and it only grossed $100 million. What caused this, bad luck or bad planning, matters little.
While any other producer would have closed the project for good, those who were involved with the Green Lantern movie have made a decision to make the second chapter. Maybe the producers know something we don’t. They may yet release an amazing film indeed so that the total earnings will cover all the past and future expenses.
The probable plot
In fact, any Green Lantern movies are destined to be popular due to the number of fans the entire DC Comics Universe has. And, for those of you who don’t already know this, it is not a world of an individual superhero. It’s about the entirety of the Justice League, and then some. Hal Jordan, the man under the Green Lantern’s mask, may gather an army of loyal admirers yet. The film’s creators should know that, and they will make everything possible to make the second film more popular than the first one. All they have to do is to ensure that the fans are entertained and satisfied by what they see on the screen.
Rumors suggest that Green Lantern will associate with another superhero, the Flash. It might be not true at all, and Green Lantern will act solo.
Ryan Reynolds and his opinion
Ryan Reynolds, the actor who starred in the first part of the Green Lantern movie, said he would not want to star in the upcoming sequel. He doesn’t see the reason for him to go back to making another film like that. In his opinion, the director Christopher Nolan should be the one to do the project and Joss Whedon should be the leading actor.
The second chapter of Green Lantern will be supposedly released in 2017.
What do you expect from the second movie, especially after having watched the first one? Do you believe the producers can come up with a good solution to make the film engaging?
