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.
Agreed. As much as I'd love to see a sequel, I thought the lack of turnout made it pretty clear that there just wasn't enough interest out there for the character.
Of course, this could just be the WB trying to save face a bit. With the movie only being in theaters a week, they're not about to admit defeat so early-- especially after all the money that's been put into it. I expect in a few months the sequel plans will be quietly dropped, and we'll never hear another word about it.
