Green Lantern gets a sequel — already — and The Flash gets his own feature

Warner Brothers must have a lot of faith in their Green Lantern film, because they're already developing a sequel. Plus a Flash film is on the way as well. Neil Patrick Harris, this is your time to shine.


THR is reporting that Warner Brothers has signed on the original writers from the first Green Lantern film, Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, to write a sequel. And even though the first film won't be released until June of next year, it would seem that the WB has a lot of faith in Ryan Reynolds. It'll be interesting to see how this news will influence the Deadpool movie he is also connected with, and vice versa. Will people really want more Green Lantern after they get a taste of full-fledged Deadpool insanity?

But that's not all, these three writers have also been given the assignment to pen The Flash screenplay, which makes sense since Guggenheim took over for The Flash comics in 2006. And according to THR this Flash will:

take inspiration from Geoff Johns' recent work and will feature the Barry Allen incarnation of the character. (In comics lore, several names have wielded the Flash mantle, though Allen, created in 1956, remains by far the most popular.)

We stand by what we said earlier: either John Krasinski or Neil Patrick Harris would be dynamite for this role.



here was a day and age when studios had the descency to at least pretend to care wether we like a movie before the start producing the sequel....
