Michael Goldenberg to pen Green Lantern 2 August 9th, 2010

With the first Green Lantern movie wrapped, but a long way from its release date and com­ple­tion, Warner Bros. have con­fi­dently hired Michael Gold­en­berg as screen­writer for Green Lantern 2. Gold­en­berg has pre­vi­ously worked on Con­tact, Harry Pot­ter and the Order of the Phoenix and of course, the first Green Lantern movie.

Green Lantern writ­ers Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggen­heim have already been asked to work on a Green Lantern 2 treat­ment. At SDCC this year, Geoff Johns com­mented on a pos­si­ble tril­ogy which sparked rumors of back-to-back sequels. Should Green Lantern be a suc­cess, it looks like the WB are posi­tion­ing them­selves to quickly launch into a sequel. Ryan Reynolds sched­ul­ing could be an issue, as he is in-line to play the lead in Fox’s Dead­pool, but we’ll have to see what hap­pens there.
