In an interview with Hero Complex, Warner Bros. film group President Jeff Robinov said the company is moving forward with a Green Lantern sequel, even though the movie didn’t open as well as the company had hoped.

“We had a decent opening so we learned there is an audience,” said Warner Bros. film group President Jeff Robinov, pointing to the film’s box office debut of $53 million. “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.”

The sequel already has an outline by Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, but off the record, someone at Warner Bros. said big changes would occur, including a new director for the flick.

In other superhero news, Robinov told the L.A. Times that a solid script for the Flash is in hand.

  1. I’m digging all the flashpoint stuff right now. It’s just a tough sell on the big screen though. It’s problematic when any hero gets their powers through a series of bizarre events.

    Leela: Delivery-Boy Man has too many powers.
    Fry: That’s because he was bitten by a radioactive Superman.

  2. Did Ryan sign a three movie deal?
    That would be stupid… but, common.
    And, I am NOT one of those freaks that want a “Deadpool” movie!
    There are tons of Marvel characters that deserve their own movie before him or Gambit!
    You fanboys and girls just put it back in your pants and let “Ant-man” have his turn!
    If Hal Jordan is not the GL and Ryan ain’t him… then the green slime will just keep crawling to a theater near you!
    (In 3-D… for no apparent reason.)
