People always say this but there are two problems with that logic:

1 - An entire movie set in space takes a huge budget and special effects wizards who really know what they are doing. People complained about the effects in GL, even though a large portion of it is earth-based. I can't even imagine how poorly it might have looked had the entire movie been off-planet.

2 - Trying to figure out what appeals to the GA is a tricky thing and the majority of superhero films have been earth-based. And even with a property like GL, that can make sense since he's assigned to protect Earth and even in the comics, he spends at least a good portion of his time in Coast City with Carol and his friends there.

Now granted, GL failed to connect with the GA. But I don't think that's entirely because the film took place mostly on Earth.

Michael Shannon for the Man in the Yellow Hat

Taldon Egereich for Grayson Todd

McG should direct the Weekend at Bernie's remake
