Default What Went Wrong With the 2011 Green Lantern Movie?

It's been five years since Green Lantern failed to ignite a DC Cinematic Universe. We look at what went wrong.

Honestly? They tried mashing too much stuff together.

They should have done a (pretty much) straight adaptation of Secret Origins, have Hector Hammond be the bad guy. Then done Parallax later.

Movies that were supposed to launch franchises (but didn’t): Green Lantern

I'm not sure Bradley Cooper would have been a great GL/much better than Reynolds but he probably would have been better. Cooper especially, though similarly relatable, has/could have had a lot of charisma. With Reynolds as he was portrayed it seemed like the studio was uncertainly hedging a lot, trying to cram in a lot of self-humor for if it wasn't otherwise impressive.
I also think the special effects, including the Green Lantern suits, actually were and, from the marketing, also looked pretty bad/generic. And the plot was weird and hard to describe or get people excited about through the marketing.

IMO the only thing the film did wrong, was it made itself TOO comical..
