It's not exactly shocking to hear any comic company suit tell the press he's "hopeful" for more sequels to a movie when the character comes from their extensive library. But as this quote comes from Geoff Johns and centers on the Green Lantern film which fell short of expectations over the summer, we'll pass it along to you to discuss. While traveling through the crowds of this weekend's New York Comic-Con, Heat Vision caught up with the Chief Creative Officer from DC Comics and asked him about potential follow-up adventures planned. Here's what Johns had to say...

"There is the hope that we will eventually see one," he said at the New York Comic Con according to Heat Vision. "Obviously, you want it to be as big as Titanic. I hope that the character gets another film, and it will be live-action again - I guarantee. There was a lot of really good stuff in the movie." He also added that "with the new animated series, Green Lantern is only going to get bigger."

With the Ryan Reynolds vehicle hitting the Blu-ray and DVD markets this week, the question remains on whether Warner Bros. Pictures will move forward on a sequel anytime soon. Produced on a budget of $200 million---not including a sizeable marketing campaign---the film managed only $116.6 million in domestic sales over the summer season. If we include the $103.2 million it earned from foreign markets, the studio found $219.8 million on a global level.
