Green Lantern 2 not greenlit yet

Time Warner still deciding on a sequel

A sequel to the DC Comics superhero movie Green Lantern has not been given the green light yet.

You may be forgiven for thinking that preparation has already begun on the second film, given yesterday's comments from Warner Bros. film group president Jeff Robinov that the sequel would be “edgier and darker”.

However, the CEO of Time Warner now says a follow-up film will be decided upon in "due course”.

"It did not live up to expectations - fell fairly far short of those," Time Warner chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes told The Hollywood Reporter .

However, Bewkes didn't completely rule out a sequel, saying: "We will be deciding that in due course."

When asked about a Green Lantern sequel at the premiere of The Change-up , actor Ryan Reynolds said he hadn't been given the call up yet.

“I have no idea, that's not up to me. I don't write those checks. And if I did I certainly wouldn't be standing on a red carpet, I would be sunning myself somewhere,” Reynolds said.
