GREEN LANTERN Director Martin Campbell On Fights With Warner Bros. And Whether He'd Direct A Marvel Movie

Green Lantern definitely negatively impacted Martin Campbell's career, and during a recent AMA, the filmmaker opened up on his battles with Warner Bros. and why he's done with comic book movies from here.

Green Lantern was released in 2011 to negative reviews, something that would play a big part in the movie bombing at the box office. No one really emerged completely unscathed, though it was director Martin Campbell and star Ryan Reynolds who arguably suffered most. 

The latter has bounced back (primarily thanks to the Deadpool franchise), but Campbell - who helmed Casino Royale - has mostly stuck to television since. Now, he's doing the rounds to promote The Protege starring Maggie Q, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson, and the filmmaker recently took to Reddit to answer questions from fans. 

He started by hinting at major creative differences with Warner Bros., describing those clashes as the worst fight he's ever been in. The studio still clashes with directors a decade on, so we probably shouldn't be surprised that Campbell butted heads with them over Green Lantern in 2011. 

However, before you start wondering if he might make the leap to the competition to work on a Marvel project, Campbell was quick to dismiss the notion. "Marvel? Forget it," he stated. "I f***ed it up once, never again." That's a shame, but also understandable all things considered (creative differences aside, chances are fans wouldn't want him to return to the genre, anyway).

Check out these highlights from Campbell's Q&A below:
