I got a chance to play Rise of the Manhunters, the Green Lantern movie tie-in game for X-Box 360. Now I’ve played some superhero games in the past that didn’t live up to the character they were trying to recreate, so I went in with a lot of expectations (some might say demands) for the game. Here’s a list of specific (and largely unreasonable) things I wanted out of this video-type-game
According to the Hollywood Reporter, a sequel to the Green Lantern movie is still in the works. The film, which only grossed $18.5 million this past weekend, cost Warner Bros. $200 million to produce, but the studio still believes in the franchise.
For those who listened to the Major Spoilers Podcast where we talked about the movie, know we thought it was pretty swell, and I for one wouldn’t mind seeing a sequel where Sinestro becomes the big bad.
What about you? Would you go see a second Green Lantern installment?
Dressing up as a superhero goes back to the beginning of the comic book genre. I would have guessed most kids would have dressed up as Batman or Superman, but a photograph being shared by NOLA.com shows an early Alan Scott fan ready for action.
On Mardi Gras 1946, Fred Lipps Jr., 13, donned the costume and was photographed at his aunt’s house on Polymnia Street, near the corner of Dryades, in Central City.
A great fan of comic book superheroes, Lipps chose Green Lantern ‘frankly, because I thought the costume was the easiest to reproduce; no fancy cowls, burning flames, wings or such.’
I think this is pretty awesome for a couple of reasons 1) the kid was 13 at the time, and 2) the guys behind him aren’t looking at him like he is some kind of weirdo. Of course it was during Mardi Gras, so his costume may have been tame in comparison.
Those crazy WWE superstars have arranged themselves into the emotional spectrum corps from the last major arcs of Green Lantern. This was definitely not something I expected to see when I went in looking for pictures of Kelly Kelly this morning.
