 == TEASER ==

Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters gives players the chance to experience the world of the Green Lantern mythology in an interactive way, going beyond the events of the film and comic books,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.  “The gameis the first to center around DC Comics’ Green Lantern franchise and we’re excited to give fans the opportunity to experience the power of the ring with engaging gameplay.

 Do you have what it takes to play as Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern Corps?

so does that mean the movie will be about the Manhunters uprising? 
 
Also i think the game seems like it would be fun but i dont think a game based on this character will reach its full potential till they come out with virtual reality that can read a persons thoughts so the player can actually construct any kind of construct their mind could come up with

i was excited til i read tha parts about being released in conjunction wit tha film and being inspired by tha film. rushed development and movie tie-in status equals trash game for us and quick bucks for them. i've said this before, they should just stop making movie games based on comic properties and just create games based on tha actual comics and put some actual development time into them.  everybody knows movie games will sell, cuz plenty of people want somethin to tie into whatever they just watched, but there are also plenty of other people who know better.  but in tha quote, she said its tha first, so maybe they have plans outside of tie-ins, so that could bring some hope to this, unless she just means its tha first cuz there will be sequels, who knows.  only time will tell, i just hope they dont mess it up.

Remember how the Iron Man 2 turned out be( the game ) , just look at the quicklook at giantbomb, really terrible:P . But perhaps this will be good , have to see some gameplay 1st before we judge it . But if it's a movie tie in game , then we know it won't be good at all, sadly:P

I don't like the idea of a game based on a film based on a comic, if they incorporate a new story it could be good. I think it's sad that DC had to wait for a Green Lantern film to be in production to have a game made that is solely based on that one character, because it would actually be really cool to play as him, so I think they should have done this sooner. A Green Lantern Corps game would've been awesome, but instead they're making some movie adaptation, whatever, I'll keep an open mind.

So it's indirectly a movie game.
Which means it has nothing to do with the movie.
So it's either gonna be Iron Man bad, or Wolverine Epic.

Well, Spider-man 2 The Video Game was great. Not all movie tie-in games are terrible. And they're announcing it now, so we're finding out about it a year in advance. So they have a good 9 months of development time. A lot can go wrong in that time, but they just announced it. Who knows how long they've been working on it, what development tools they're using to make it. Do we know who's developing it?

Batman Arkham Asylum was a movie game. There was an interview with Geoff Johns who says its pretty much the same kind of game. Meaning its not directly related to the movie, but the concept is close.

Hahahahaha 
 
A video game where you will wear a ring limited only by your imagination...and the controls the game puts in, topping out the actually things you can do with the ring at somewhere around 20 at best. 
 
Which is about the number of things Hal Jordan actually does with his ring.

Batman Arkham Asylum was a movie game."

In no way was Arkham Asylum a movie game.
 
The only characters that actually appear in both the game and the movies (Batman, Joker, Scarecrow) are definately the comic book incarnations of the characters.  The rest were straight out of the comic books with no relation to the movies.

@doordoor123: I don't think it was a movie tie in... it came out way after Dark Knight did. That's the only reasoning I can think of to dispute that.There was a Dark Knight game being made by another company that got canned because they were behind on schedule and it probably sucked anyway. 
 
People! Don't get your hopes up. Keep your ear to the ground on this one! I fear it may go the way of the Superman Returns video game... D: 
 
I am really hoping this turns out for the better though. I've often thought about what I would do with a GL game if I were to make it.

I am getting this game no matter what. Been waiting for green lantern's popularity for too long even if there is going to be some stuff going to suck I am still going to enjoy every bit of green lantern. Man hunters rising and to able to  free roam in space sounds epic for now for me bring on the green light. I usually most movie tie ins even they suck or not so.

My expectations for this game are very low because of the whole "can't really duplicate the ring powers" in the game unless they really pour in the time to put in thousands of animations.

Exciting exciting, I read on Newsarama that John's Mentioned a Suicide Squad game.  How absolutely amazing that would be.  In a style like Metal Gear Solid Peace walker/ portable ops (lots of small piece meal missions, that can be accomplished a number of ways by a number of playable characters) or even like small style RTS of Commandos. 
 
Success DC Success.  Ps lets hope Johns has good taste in video games and doesn't settle for just standard fair brawlers/shooters.

I've thought about a GL game before, but the thing I always wonder is that the GL's power is limited by imagination. So are we going to be able to make giant green fists or drop green anvils on villains?? Because that's what I want, ha.

It had no movie tie in......its not a movie game! Wolverine: Origins...movie game, Batman Begins...movie game, Incredible Hulk...movie game, Arkham Asylum was just awesome they should make it a movie (it would be probably animated if they make one).  
I hope the Green Lantern game is good but usually if the game is based on, inspired by or something its basically going to follow the movie.

Sadly, the chances that this game will be any good are minuscule.

1. This isn't Rocksteady, it's Double Helix, best know for... huh... the G.I. Joe movie tie-in... Yeah.

2. Imagine how many constructs a Lantern can make. Now imagine how many will find their way into a video game. Unless they go Scribblenauts to the power of a million exploding suns, all you'll get is a guy in a green suit with a dozen attacks at best, not a Green Lantern.

Sorry, but between the horrible pedigree of the developers and the borderline impossible task of doing justice to the powers of the rings, I wouldn't expect anything even remotely as good as Arkham Asylum.

AA2 is still your best bet in 2011 for a great comic-book video game. Mr Freeze, Talia, Two-Face, the Joker (Hamill's final hurrah), probably Black Mask and Paul Dini back on writing duties? Sold! 

 Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (coming out in September, I think) is shaping up nicely, and inFamous 2, while not a comic-book adaptation per se,  will almost certainly be a blast. And, of course, let's not forget DC Universe Online launching in November. 
 
So even without GL, I'd say comic-book fans have plenty to look forward to. :)
