Green Lantern 2 going ahead

Disappointing box office numbers haven’t dampened Warner’s faith in the superhero series.

Even though it has been the least popular superhero movie of the summer, Warner Bros is looking to produce a follow-up to Green Lantern, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sources say that the studio is a bit disappointed with the numbers for the Martin Campbell-directed film, yet they still “believe” in the property. A script is already underway for the second film.

As of this weekend, Green Lantern has made $118 million at the worldwide box office against a $200 million budget, with a rumoured $100 million in marketing costs on top of that.
