NYCC '11: Geoff Johns Says There's Still Hope For A Green Lantern Sequel

Speaking at New York Comic Con, Geoff Johns assures fans that plans for a Green Lantern sequel aren't dead just yet.
Speaking at NYCC today, Geoff Johns said "there is the hope that we will eventually see one" even though Green Lantern seriously underperformed at the box office this summer. He also announced that Adult Swim’s “Robot Chicken” will do a DC Comics satire special next summer similar to what they've done on Star Wars.

Johns went on to say, "Obviously, you want it to be as big as Titanic." But he added: "I hope that the character gets another film, and it will be live-action again - I guarantee. There was a lot of really good stuff in the movie," Johns said, adding that the director's cut of the film adds scenes which enhance protagonist's story and character.

 Well, we at CBM know that the additional scenes don't really feature any of the stuff we were hoping for so I have to say Johns, I don't think they'll be saving the movie.

Johns went on to point out that upcoming CGI Green Lantern series from Bruce Timm on Time Warner's Cartoon Network will bring new fans to Hal Jordan. "With the new animated series, Green Lantern is only going to get bigger," he said.



He focused on the fact that it's DC's first CGI animated series and went on to say that "there will be more" such series." He didn't provide further details but we know one such show will be Beware the Batman.

At this point, I think they've committed so much into making Green Lantern a household name that they have no choice but to make another movie. There's no way Warner Bros. will be left out of the CBM craze that their competitors are finding ample financial success with and expanding their focus upon. Chiefly speaking, studious nowadays are all committing to at least 1 CBM a year. With The Dark Knight Rises and then Man of Steel coming from WB there's a glaring void as to what will be released in 2014. I honestly don''t see WB taking a year off from the superhero business, so that begs the question, what hero will they roll out? If I was a betting man, I'd say that it's probably going to be another Green Lantern movie but the question is how much will it depart from the disaster WB gave us this summer? Will it be a reboot, a sequel, pre-quel or something else altogether. Personally, I think Warner Bros. needs to go a different direction than Hal Jordan and look to some of the other Lanterns. With Alan Scott, John Stewart, Kyle Rayner, and Guy Gardner WB has a rich history of DC characters to choose from when it comes to the next Green Lantern outing. By choosing another character, WB can get the origin story that Green Lantern needs, retold in a more appealing fashion. Without nailing this aspect of the character and truly telling what the Lantern Corps., their powers, and their mission is all about they will never be able to achieve the success that character such as Batman and Superman deliver.

Which Green Lantern do you think WB should chose for the next Green Lantern outing? Vote and sound off below in the comments section!

It's 'Singerman: Madame Of Swish' all over again....

It still sucks it bombed, i really wanted it to do well too. But ya it probably never will. Unless it was a made for cheap direct to video film. Though the comment of a dc episode for robot chicken sounds cool.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:

It DOESN'T "suck" that it bombed. It deserved to bomb.

Period.

Green Lantern wiki page wrote:Sequel

In 2010 Director Martin Campbell confirmed the possibility of a Green Lantern trilogy,[92] and in June of that year Warner Bros. hired Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, all of whom worked on the Green Lantern screenplay, to write a treatment for the second installment.[93] In August 2010, they retained Michael Goldenberg to write the screenplay, based on the sequel treatment.[94] A scene in the film's end credits implying a resurgence of the yellow power of "fear" strongly suggests a planned sequel. After Green Lantern was released a trade account reaffirmed that Warner Bros., although "somewhat disappointed" with the opening-week box office of the film, still intended to move forward with a sequel.[95] In September 2011, the Associated Press reported that Warner Bros., dismayed by disappointing receipts was considering abandoning plans for a sequel.[96] However at the October 2011 New York Comic Con Geoff Johns, chief creative officer at Warner Bros.' DC Entertainment, stated that "There is the hope" that a Green Lantern sequel will still be produced and that, "It will be live-action again -- I guarantee."

Obviously I'm on record for doubting this will happen. But the fact that there's even a conversation about it is interesting to me.

The reason for that is really not so much to do with Green Lantern as much as it is Singerman. Both completely tanked it at the box office but, without comparing figures, my guess is that GL lost even more money than Singerman did. So if GL gets a sequel anyway... I mean, crap, what does that say about Singerman? I figured Singerman's dismal box office performance was the at least 90% of the reason Singerman 2- Pleather Boogaloo never happened. But if they end up making a GL sequel anyway, I'll start wondering if the Realists played a bigger part than I first thought.

After all, if GL -- a presumably bigger flop than Singerman -- gets a sequel in this hypothetical scenario then all that's left on the table is fan backlash to explain why Superman got rebooted.

It just came out on DVD. All they are trying to do is drive-up sales.

We did.

Neither will have a sequel.
