The subpar box office performance of the Ryan Reynolds-led Green Lantern movie was a huge disappointment for Warner Bros. Mark Strong, who played Sinestro in the movie, suggests that the poor draw served as the nail in the franchise’s coffin, at least, for the time being.
“I would be surprised if they made a second one, because I’ve heard nothing about it in quite a while now,” said Strong, suggesting that the next time we’ll see the character will be in a Justice League movie, should one ever get made.
Strong also clarified the post credits scene in the movie, where Sinestro put the yellow ring on, confusing many viewers who were not familiar with the comic books:
“A lot of people seemed to be confused by [Sinestro] putting on the ring at the end of the movie,” said Strong. “They felt that it came out of nowhere. It was intended to relate to where the movies were headed and that, for me, would have been very exciting because putting on of the ring and the suit turning yellow would have been great fun.”
