Another Green Lantern Movie Is in the Works

Green Lantern Corps announced today at Comic-Con, could feature Star Trek's Chris Pine in the lead role.

48 Comments

Today during the Warner Bros. Pictures panel at Comic-Con, the film giant officially announced Green Lantern Corps, a sequel to the 2011 movie Green Lantern that featured Ryan Reynolds in the lead role.

The A.V. Club attended the panel at Comic-Con today and reports that there are no details regarding the movie's cast or release date. Warner Bros. made the announcement through a concept art reel.

No Caption Provided

The movie's title suggests that Hal Jordan / Green Lantern will be joined by a team of allies, though that is unconfirmed at this point. Some possible teammates might include Guy Gardner and John Stewart.

You may not want to hold your breath for Reynolds to reprise his role. In 2013, Reynolds told Empire that he would have "very little interest" in playing Green Lantern again. Instead, MTV notes that Star Trek actor Chris Pine is reportedly in the running to play Green Lantern in the new movie.

According to Box Office Mojo, 2011's Green Lantern earned about $220 million globally at the box office against a reported $200 million budget. The movie was accompanied by a video game called Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, which GameSpot scored a 6/10.

The fans of Green Lantern and movies in general said that they would have "very little interest" in Ryan Reynolds doing a horrible job of playing Green Lantern again.

FTFY.

I don't get all this movie news. It won't attract any new users. People who want film news use IMDB. all they are doing is P1ss1ng off the user base they already have.

Also, that scrolling bar at the bottom of the page is AWFUL!

All these movie articles don't belong on GS. A major part of this site's appeal is that it is supposed to be gaming only. If people want other entertainment news they'd use IGN.

@Alurit:

1.) 'Eddicle' isn't a word.

2.) Of course it's a fu.cking article. What do you think it is? A drawing?

Pine would be a huge upgrade from Ryan Reynolds. Aside from Sinestro, that whole Green Lantern movie was crap.

@streamline: It takes them way too long to make a movie. Remember when they last did a Green Lantern movie ?
