Another comic-to-film-to-videogame adaptation has been announced by Warner Bros. Interactive; this time for Green Lantern. The game will be titled Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, which hopefully indicates strong ties with Geoff Johns’ work on the character. Unless it’s also the full title of the film, which hopefully will also draw heavily on Johns’ stellar run. The game will release Summer 2011, or Winter for those of us in the southern hemisphere.
I’ve never played a Green Lantern videogame before, so it’ll be interesting to see how they handle his virtually limitless powers: using willpower to forge constructs out of green light. Now a thought-controlled videogame – that I’d like to see.
