Green Lantern 2 The Rise of Sinestro

Updated on August 9, 2016

The Green Lantern

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Green Lantern wasn’t a hit when it first came out, or even a hit right now. The movie wasn’t planned out right and the story lacked all “hero” qualities. It turned out to be more of a joke than a real movie. Honestly I enjoy Green Lantern more than the other superheroes because he has the ability to be very creative with his power. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and many of the other heroes have powers that are easily defined. The only thing they can be creative about is how they use their strength or technology. Green Lantern can make almost anything he wants from the ring.

Even after the downfall of the movie Warner Bros is planning a sequel to Green Lantern. Ryan Reynolds was a pretty good choice for the lantern. He is in shape and has the charisma needed to fill the role of a superhero.

Green Lantern 2 will concentrate more on combat and the use of the ring and will take place more in space than on any planets. Martin Campbell, the director of the first movie will not be directing the second movie. Michael Goldenberg is the official writer for the movie. It has been rumored that Blake Lively will be Star Sapphire. This is of course rumored, but it would be pretty cool to see her playing alongside Ryan Reynolds as ex-lovers.

Along with a second Green Lantern being released we heard news from Marc Guggenheim, one of the writers that the plan was to make a trilogy from the beginning. So along with a second movie we can expect a third movie.

This film, rumors say, will have an “edgier” plot and will be much darker than the prior movie. Ryan Reynolds is still the star of the movie.

We know from the ending of Green Lantern, after the credits rolled, that Sinestro will be the villain in the next movie. In the comic series he was Hal’s teacher before going bad and becoming the arch-nemesis of the entire Green Lantern foundation.

      I will definitely be keeping my fingers crossed for this one. I know Guggenheim also worked on the Sea of Monsters adaptation (which is terrible), but to his credit, he does have Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow under his belt as well. I enjoy most of the comics that he writes (his dialogue could be a bit better, but his stories are typically on point and a lot of fun), so here's hoping whatever work he does on a Green Lantern sequel will be good.

      I didn't think it was as bad as everyone said it was either. I mean, it's bad, don't get me wrong but not as bad as everyone portrayed it to be. Yeah I hope they concentrate more on Sinestro too. He would be a good character to build onto. Thanks for the comment!

      It'll be interesting to see if Warner Bros. actually makes the second film or not. Some sources say they won't, while most sources say that they're going ahead with it anyway. I honestly don't think the green lantern was as bad as people made it out to be, but it definitely left a lot to be desired, as they threw too many things at the audiences, and didn't allow for the characters to develop, so newcomers could get to know the character. however, if they do go through with it, i just hope they stick closer to the source material when explaining Sinestro's fall from grace. anyway, great hub

      I was extremely disappointed in the first movie. When I heard about the cast I got very excited. But then things slowly started happening like the conversion to 3d and it seemed like the executives at the Studios were getting their hands on it instead of the artistic creators. I remain hopeful for the second film because I love Green Lantern and I am an optimist and think they will have learned their mistakes from the second one.
