That report, which is sourced to The Hollywood Reporter
- still a pretty reliable trade source, not a fanboy comic book wanksite (read: comicbookmovie.com) - shocks me a bit. I thought the 66% dropoff this weekend would have the WB suits quietly declining to talk about the future, not reaffirming their support for GL.
I can make up
business-type rationalizations that make this sound logical, if not plausible, but I sure wouldn't want to post them because after this weekend they'd be a reach.
I thought Sinestro was one of the highlights of the film. He comes across as arrogant but honest. It has been rumored
(stress that word) that if a sequel when forward it would turn out that what happened to Abin Sur and why it ultimately happened (the Guardians tinkering around with sketchy stuff - shades of the Manhunters - sending Sur to handle it and then keeping it a secret) cause him to consider them unfit to police the Universe and so he decides to create his own force initially as an alternative.
