When Warner Bros. made Green Lantern, the new superhero movie starring Ryan Reynolds, there was no doubt that the studio was hoping to launch a franchise. Unfortunately, the film didn't quite deliver with critics or at the box office, which is typically a bad omen for those hoping to see Reynolds back in his CG suit. That said, it looks like Warner Bros. is ready to move forward with a Green Lantern sequel, which could be a great idea or a disaster, depending on how you look at it.
Though the first movie has its issues, there's definitely potential thanks to Reynolds. A sequel could allow for a more developed story, especially if the filmmakers learn from the mistakes they made the first time around. Hey, it wouldn't be the first time a sequel has topped an original: it's pretty universally accepted that Terminator 2: Judgment Day raised the bar, and many loved the sequel to Spider-Man 2.
