The biggest disappointment about the tepid reception to the Green Lantern film is that it now looks to be highly unlikely that we will ever get to see Mark Strong really get to cut loose as Sinestro. Strong was one of the best parts about the movie, but the filmmakers were clearly holding back with him, leaving his story to be resolved in a sequel that will probably never come. The producers should have jettisoned the whole Hector Hammond sub plot and went with a straight up Hal vs. Sinestro story line. Who knows - the Hulk found a new lease on life after two so-so film outings, maybe there's a glimmer of hope for GL and Sinestro to shine again on the big screen.
