Green Lantern 2 Will Be Edgier And Darker With A New Director

When “Green Lantern 2” arrives, expect to see some big changes.

The Los Angeles Times has learned that Warner Bros is moving forward on the project despite lackluster critical reception and box office for Green Lantern. But director Martin Campbell isn’t involved in the plan, which reportedly revamps the entire feel of the franchise and starts from scratch on the sequel’s current plans.

“To go forward we need to make it a little edgier and darker with more emphasis on action,” Warner Bros film group President Jeff Robinoy told the Los Angeles Times. “And we have to find a way to balance the time the movie spends in space versus on Earth.”

Apparently people close to the project say that Warner Bros is planning on making some significant changes on the current script outline that was written by Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim. But by getting rid of Campbell for the sequel, WB is planning on taking a new approach for the sequel.

“Green Lantern 2” would likely not hit theaters until late 2013 or some time in 2014, but at this point it seems like Warner Bros is very set on continuing a film series out of their DC franchise. With “The Dark Knight Rises” out next summer and “Man of Steel” due out in June 2013, Robinov said that WB is still planning to bring their DC superheroes together for a “Justice League” movie at some point in the future.
