So Sony seems very confident their reboot of Spider-man is going to do very well. Since they have announced the sequel is already being planned for 2014. Um, first off from what I can tell the reboot isn’t being received very well from actual audience members. When seeing Captain America, the theater I was in most people booed or hissed at the trailer when it was finished. Most people don’t seem to understand why the story is being repeated. The term “too soon” comes up a lot. It seems when it comes to comic book movies studios are very determined to make the sequels work no matter what fans say. Sony standing tall on this remake and WB going along with Green Lantern 2(which I think is a good idea) is proof of that. I guess I should wait and see the The Amazing Spider-man but from the pictures and the teaser trailer I have a fear they have dropped the ball badly, can’t imagine the sequel would be much better.

Look I get it, Green Lantern wasn’t as good as The Dark Knight. Still the franchise itself wasn’t going to be like Spider-man or Batman. WB should have known this film wasn’t going to play to everyone, so their epic marketing campaign was falling onto to deaf ears basically. The things that happen in this film and storyline are a little out there with dealing with aliens and a hero who travels in space. So Green Lantern didn’t exactly explode in the box office, it still had made decent money though, I think studio’s are a little too obsessed with opening weekends and if a movie doesn’t make $300 million it’s not a “franchise hit”. This is nonsense, if anything a Green Lantern 2 would pull more people in. I think studios don’t realize that many people wait for DVD these days. Once the film hits that market so many more people will watch the film. Then if you make Green Lantern 2, it will become an event, people who saw the first will go, fans will go. The story line needs to keep going, Green Lantern is one of the best comic book franchises and it deserves a long movie run. Please do not wait to reboot it, keep the franchise going you can push it through to make money. Please remember that Batman Begins did not open the way many wanted it to. Some called it a failure, then they made The Dark Knight which set a new standard for comic movies. So Warner Brothers make Green Lanter 2!
