Greg Berlanti

There are at least a hundred million little green reasons not to make Green Lantern 2, but Warners is ignoring all of them. That’s as true now as it was after the film’s release. “We had a decent opening so we learned there is an audience,” Warners President Jeff Robinov told the LA Times. “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.” Forget edgy and dark. Just make a good movie. Let Reynolds have fun, stop being so mopey, and make us care about what happens to him. What they really need is a script that doesn’t have the same lack of energy or second act problems.

Because putting money into the first film in a B-level superhero franchise is one thing, but starting work on sequel before principal photography is wrapped on the first is something different entirely.
