Green Lantern 2 to Be Edgier and Darker With New Director

Warner Bros is going forward with a sequel to this summer’s Green Lantern despite the lackluster box office receipts and less than favorable reviews it received. Green Lantern did open with $53 million, proving that there is an audience for the DC character, but the studio definitely has changes in mind for the sequel.

According to the LATimes, Green Lantern 2 will be “edgier and darker with more emphasis on action.” Jeff Robinov, Warner Bros film group President, stated how the sequel will be improved:

“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.”

The storyline of Green Lantern 2 may not follow the outline written by the first film’s scribes Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim. Warner Bros is said to even be keen on hiring a different director for this second outing instead of staying with Martin Campbell.

What do you think? Would you see a sequel to Green Lantern?
