Get Ready for 'Green Lantern' Trilogy

Next summer’s Green Lantern just officially wrapped production, but Warner Bros. is wasting no time in commissioning a sequel. Hopefully it’s good news for fans that the studio is so confident in the film they’ve made that they’re already bringing on writers to help shape the sequel, and, most likely, will do the same for a third film too. Yup, no waiting for opening weekend numbers on this one – you’re getting a Green Lantern franchise, and you’re gonna like it!

'Green Lantern'

Well, obviously you don’t have to like it, but Warner Bros. feels you will. They’ve gone and hired Michael Goldenberg to write The Green Lantern 2 after he helped co-write the script for the first installment. Goldenberg is no stranger to genre stuff, having penned Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, as well as Jodie Foster’s Contact. So, yeah, it’s nice to see them bringing back the guy who was involved in the first one; this proves they liked what he delivered, and it also means he’ll be able to maintain consistency between the two films.
Also, knowing that Warners has jumped out ahead with this sequel probably means The Green Lantern ends on a pretty cool cliffhanger. Guess we’ll see when it hits theaters in both 2D and 3D on June 17th, 2011.
Are you happy to see the studio franchising The Green Lantern, or would you rather watch the first one before committing to two or three films?
