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.
