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.
