Green Lantern sequel unlikely

February 27th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Green Lantern star Mark Strong has said that he doesn’t expect a sequel to the 2011 film.

Speaking to MTV, he said: “I would be surprised if they made a second one, because I’ve heard nothing about it in quite a while now.”

Commenting on the post-credits scene in the movie, which had originally been intended to serve as a signpost towards possible sequels, he continued: “A lot of people seemed to be confused by [Sinestro] putting on the ring at the end of the movie.

“They felt that it came out of nowhere. It was intended to relate to where the movies were headed and that, for me, would have been very exciting because putting on of the ring and the suit turning yellow would have been great fun.”

While we are unlikely to see a Green Lantern sequel now, it is very possible we will see the character in the planned Justice League movie.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
