"I really like Green Lantern," he told MTV News. "I don't have a problem with it at all. But it just didn't seem to do anything at the box office or it didn't do what they were hoping it would do at the box office. I think that more than anything, economics, dictates whether or not they make another one.

"I think it's a real shame. I loved making Green Lantern and I loved playing Sinestro and I was really excited about the direction that he was going to take in the second one."

The conclusion of the Ryan Reynolds-starring Warner Bros film set the franchise up for a sequel featuring the founding of the fear-powered Sinestro Corps.

"A lot of people seemed to be confused by him putting on the ring at the end of the movie," Strong continued. "They felt that it came out of nowhere. All it was, during the credits, there was a sequence which was a nod to where the trilogy was intending to head to. It wasn't ever meant to be part of the story of the first film.

"I would be surprised if they made a second one because I've heard nothing about it in quite a while now.

"What that standalone moment was intended to relate to was where the movies were headed and that, for me, would have been very exciting because the putting on of the ring and the whole suit turning yellow would have been great fun."

Strong was most recently seen in Zero Dark Thirty.
