Geoff Johns Hopeful for Green Lantern Sequel

Geoff Johns Hopeful for Green Lantern Sequel

Having cost $200 million to make, not counting marketing costs, Green Lantern was seen as a disappointment at the worldwide box office, earning $117 million domestically and $103.3 million overseas for a worldwide total of $219.9 million. The Blu-ray and DVD hit stores on Friday, so we’ll have to see how those perform, but DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is still hopeful for a sequel.

“There is the hope that we will eventually see one,” he said at the New York Comic Con according to Heat Vision. “Obviously, you want it to be as big as Titanic. I hope that the character gets another film, and it will be live-action again – I guarantee.”

He added that “there was a lot of really good stuff in the movie” and said that “with the new animated series, Green Lantern is only going to get bigger.”

  1. Though I did enjoy the first one and hope there is a sequel I think it is just difficult for comic book hero movies to gross big at the box office. For starters I don’t think the comic industry in general is as big as it was when I was younger and movies like the Superman series were doing well.

    I also think they may have flooded the comic book hero movies into the market this year which may have hurt a little bit. Hopefully the DVD and Blu-ray sales will keep the idea going and then push the sequel to happen.
