Default Re: Green Lantern 2

Here's my idea:

The main baddie would be Atrocitus and perhaps the secondary villain would be Star Sapphire.

He's searching for a power to fight the guardians for what happened to the lost sector (Parallax destroying it and the Guardians for covering it up).

He comes across Sinestro. The two fight but Atrocitus gets away but not before telling Sinestro about the future (Korugar erupting in violence).

He comes to Earth looking for the power and of course he fights Hal. Hal tries to go after him but Carol becomes Star Saphhire and begins reek havoc on Hal's life.

Meanwhile, Sinestro becomes paranoid about Atrocitus's prophecy and starts to see crime erupt, believing willpower isn't working, he begins to use the yellow ring (Which he kept).

Atrocitus finds the red light of rage and becomes a Red Lantern. He easily wipes the floor with Hal. Hal meanwhile frees Carol of the Star Sapphire and perhaps in a nod to the Predator, it attacks him in a similar form before he destroys it. Hal then chases after Atrocitus.

Atrocitus, wanting to stick it to the Guardians, goes after their greatest warrior, Sinestro. He goes to Korugar and fights Sinestro, who's fallen deeper into the Yellow Ring's influence. Hal shows up and helps him but Atrocitus's begins to grow. Hal calls for back up, inadvertently exposes Sinestro's use of the yellow ring. Eventually Hal tries to reason with Atrocitus and finds about his family getting killed by Parallax. Atrocitus's rage calms and just as the Corps begins to arrest him, Sinestro kills him. Hal gets into a big argument but then they are teleported to the Guardian's chambers where they banish Sinestro to the antimatter universe.

Hal and the other Lanterns got back to their respective Sector thinking it's over but meanwhile Sinestro finds a weapon fabricator in the anti matter universe and asks him to duplicate the yellow ring.



It's an idea.

Anyway, I'd keep mid credits scene as canon. I only saw it as Sinestro being curious about the Yellow Power since he nearly had it before.
Considering there may not be a Green Lantern 2, I'm not sure I agree with you...but, I shall obey The Sage.

My point is, there's plenty of complaining in the threads elsewhere, no need to carry it over here.

From THR:
Warner Bros. to Pursue 'Green Lantern' Sequel

Sources say Warners still believes in the franchise, even if the studio is “somewhat disappointed” with Green Lantern’s result.

Over the weekend, Green Lantern fell a steep 66% at the domestic box office, grossing $18.4 million for a cume of $89.3 million. That’s a big decline.

Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman said the movie is settling in, pointing out that fanboy pics often see a significant drop-off in their second weekends.

Still, Green Lantern fell off more than recent superhero pics Thor and X-Men: First Class. Thor dropped 47% in its second weekend, while First Class dropped 56%.

Similar films that have seen the same sort of dip that Green Lantern did include Hulk, which dropped nearly 70% in its second outing.

Green Lantern cost $200 million to produce before a sizeable marketing spend (rival studios say it was one of the most expensive on record). Warners, preparing for the end of Harry Potter, needs new franchises, so was willing to invest big in Green Lantern.

A formidable obstacle standing in Green Lantern’s way now is Paramount’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which opens in theaters around the globe on Tuesday night.

I still say that's spin just to try save face after a miserable attempt to create a new flagship movie series.

if that article is indeed true then i am happy that WB will not give up on GL

they've all heard the critics and fans and i'm sure they will deliver a better film. though i did like GL, you can tell there were parts that felt rushed and the script itself had some misses

That’s the question Warner Bros. faces in the wake of the less-than-stellar worldwide roll-out of the superhero tentpole. The studio appears to be grappling with the challenging decision. While a top studio source told THR on Sunday that Warners was proceeding with plans for a follow-up film, a studio spokesman said Monday that no decision has been reached.

From Bad Ass Digest:
Why Warner Bros Is Saying They’re Making A GREEN LANTERN Sequel
Quote:
Originally Posted by Devin Faraci
I think Green Lantern will end up being a bona fide bomb. It has a 200 million dollar production budget and a 100 million dollar advertising budget. It’s at an anemic 89 million domestic, with a second week plummet of 65%, high even by the usual high standards of blockbuster second week drops. It’s sputtering around overseas. It may crawl towards 180 global, but that’s still well below the budget. And on top of that all, it seems like people don’t particularly like the movie.

And yet Warner Bros is going ahead with a sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Why?

There are a couple of reasons, some of which are real and some of which are posturing. The studio doesn’t want to admit defeat on the movie, because that will hurt the film in future weeks and on home video. By claiming they have a sequel coming down the pike it looks like confidence on the studio’s front, and this could interest ticket buyers. “There’s going to be a second one? Maybe I should see it!”

Also, Warner Bros doesn’t want their DC superheroes brand to look weak compared to Marvel. Yes, it’s good old Marvel vs DC again. DC has a whole bunch of possible franchises lurking, and they don’t want the superheroes to carry the stink of death. Part of what made Thor work was that people liked Iron Man and they see the Marvel movies as one franchise.

The real world reason can be summed up as such: Harry Potter. The studio’s cash cow ends in a couple of weeks, and they need something to replace it. Christopher Nolan is being a bit *****y to them and making sure that his Batman franchise won’t be that moneymaker, since he’s looking to end it with The Dark Knight Rises. There’s hope for The Man of Steel, but the Superman franchise has been tricky at best and as of right now nobody is completely confident in the script they have.

Warner Bros has known for months that Green Lantern wasn’t going to work; in the final months the biggest executives at the studio got their fingers into the editing of the film, trying to make something workable from it. What they’re probably doing now is writing the first film off as an investment in the series – they know what people responded to, and this time they can pick a director who will be more comfortable with all the special effects. Oh, and they’ll make the whole damn thing cheaper, too. Expect to see much less Oa and much more Sinestro on Earth.

That is if they even make it. Disney claimed they’re making another Tron movie, but there’s been zero movement on that in reality. I expect that Warner Bros will wait until home video comes in for Green Lantern before they actually pull the trigger. It’s the Batman Begins scenario, where they’re hoping the movie finds an audience at home. But unlike Begins, the studio is making a public show of support up front, before the film bounces out of the top five next weekend.

The second one is Hollywood Reporter as well, and they're just updating the whole WB/GL fiasco....I say when the dust clears, Warner Brothers will have more cons on a GL sequel than pros and brush that movie into the crap bin along with Jonah Hex.

Well...there's a school of thought that says always put on a smiling face when your movie still has yet to open in certain countries, and the DVD hasn't come out yet.

But maybe they do somehow really believe in the potential of GL as a successful franchise down the road. It'd be one heck of a leap of faith if they do.

I'd have more faith on DVD/Blu-ray sales than the ticket sales of other countries, imo. Who knows, maybe there is some truth to that "extended cut" rumor and WB may actually be pulling a Daredevil on us with extra footage. That'd be nice.

A HUGE leap of faith. Even moreso than Altair's

And that's saying a lot, lol.

But, when it comes to Michael Bay films, I think the GA understands already that Bay isn't trying to make an emotional film; he's trying to just make huge sound-and-spectacle popcorn flicks for the summer. With Green Lantern, it should, at least, be a GREAT film as usually CBM movies are great and shows certain kinds of emotion instead of just lights and sounds. Now, GL's SFX is perfectly fine, imo, but the characters, or most of them, were very dead, imo. Hal was definitely great and most of the others needed a little help, but Hal's friend(the dude who reminded me of SV's Dr. Hamilton lol), Hector and even Carol just felt like dead character weight.

If they feel like putting even more money into finishing the incomplete effects that kept a lot of that footage out. I wouldn't hold your breath on that one.

And the DVD/BluRay market ain't what it used to be with Netflix and Redbox, etc.

They may not have to put in more money for those scenes...there could have been many reasons why they were taken out instead of just not being finished.

According to some involved with the film, they were unfinished. So aside from that, yeah you could have a few scenes of, say, Hal getting a cup of coffee, or various other things that have no GL effects. Yay.

And even with that....putting together an 'extended cut' will cost more money if they don't already have that extended version conformed/mastered for release. They'd have to unarchive/reopen/reload another edit session and adjust the existing cut and soundmix to fit the extra scenes in...then redo a color-correct to match it, then remaster. It's not like putting together a 'fan edit' for YouTube. It's a lot less costly/involved to just include the extra stuff as bonus/deleted scenes if they still have it lying around.

WB is already debunking the earlier sequel reports:

believe me this isn't happening, and the actors are going to find other projects, and the whole thing will be over with.

Sinestro's already been set up. Why spend a whole nother movie setting him up when he's already one bad day away from going yellow ring???? He's the best villain to up the ante, no need for another placeholder villain, especially when Krona and Parallax, his other two greatest villains, have been done, more or less.

Because Sinestro wasn't sep up. Him putting on the yellow power ring was forced into the end credits. Hardly character development.

Exactly Sam Fisher. It was just fan lip service and sequel bait. There was no set up. Set up would have been showing Sinestro being a bit questionable throughout the movie, not playing him off as the most noble and decent GL out there. Maybe have Hal go to Korugar with Sinestro on a training mission, then see how Sinestro keeps order in his sector.

More of the film should have been in space. **** Earth and Carol and Hal's friend who i can't even remember his name. Show Hal growing as a Lantern. Show Hal and Sinestro's relationship develop from mentor/student, to friends, then finally Hal realises that Sinestro is going too far with his policing of his sector. A real character arc for BOTH Hal and Sinestro.
