Green Lantern Director Martin Campbell Is Full of Regret
Director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, Mask of Zorro) regrets directing the superhero film Green Lantern.
In an interview with Screen Rant, Campbell was requested in regards to the risk of a Green Lantern director’s lower (as they’ve been a sizzling matter within the DCEU as of late). It’s not shocking that the director has no real interest in returning to the superhero style in any respect.
“We’ll put it this way: I did have my cut. The point was, right at the beginning of the movie, there was a whole sequence where he’s an 11-year-old kid. It’s how his father dies in the air crash, which was a really good sequence. But [the production head] at the time decided that he wanted the death of the father intercut with Hal plunging in the plane, and he saw these flashbacks come to him. That was something that I didn’t like very much.”
Green Lantern’s debut in theaters was met with common disdain and disapproval by followers and movie critics alike. In addition, the movie bombed on the field workplace with a $219 million complete on the world field workplace on a $200 million funds. Campbell isn’t bitter about it. In reality, he partially blames himself for a way the movie turned out.
“But you know what? The film did not work, really. That’s the point, and I’m partly responsible for that. I shouldn’t have done it. Because with something like Bond – I love Bond, and I watched every Bond film before I ever directed it. Superhero movies are not my cup of tea, and for that reason, I shouldn’t have done it. But directors always have to carry the can for the failures. What do they say? Success has many fathers, failure has one. And that’s me,” Campbell concluded.
Green Lantern has been absent from the larger DCEU universe however is getting one other shot at success with the HBO Max present Green Lantern Corps. The sequence is at the moment in growth.
