A few weeks ago we showed you the Injustice Battle Arena. This has been an entertaining and interesting way for Nether Realm to show off some gameplay footage and slowly reveal some more characters. This week, we got a couple of awesome reveals, which you can see after the jump.
Geoff Johns has done much to revive and grow the Green Lantern mythos. Now, with the origin of the Indigo tribe revealed, how will he continue? Take the jump for a Major Spoilers look at Green Lantern #10.
With the relaunch/reboot/re-imagining the occurred with DC Comics’ New 52, the one thing many didn’t see coming (unless they watched Green Lantern movie) was Sinestro becoming a Green Lantern again. DC Direct steps up for the Green Lantern fan in your life with an action figure ready just in time for gift giving.
When Green Lantern #1 arrives in September, a new old Green Lantern will be introduced, and you might just be surprised who it is (or not).
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
DC Comics announced the other day that a direct to DVD animated movie exploring the Green Lantern Corps is on the way in June, and the merchandise for the movie isn’t far behind. The company announced an 11.6-inch high Sinestro statue will make its way to shelves in July.
No word on price just yet. And if the solicitation for the statue is a clue, expect to see Hal Jordan, Kilowog, Arisia, and another statue or two showing up real soon.
Except for the Sinestro sketch, I’m liking everything I’m seeing from the artist that we could eventually see in the Green Lantern movie.
Behold the Guardians!
And then there is Sinestro…
Or – “The War Of Light Rages On, And The Key Players Gather For Operation Roy G. Biv…”
Indigo-1 and her Indigo Tribe have provided Hal Jordan and the heroes of the galaxy with the weakness of the Black Lanterns’ rings: multiple spectrum emotions.Â In an attempt to give the BLC as much multi-spectrum as possible, Indigo-1 has gathered the primary bearers of the green and violet light, and has brought them both to Korugar to find the man who embodies yellow.Â Sinestro is, however, understandably distracted by the return of his dead friends and lovers, and also might have a little problem with NOT KILLING HAL.Â Five bucks on the gourd-headed guy…
Warner Bros. has put out the casting call for actors to join Ryan Reynolds down under in the Green Lantern movie.Â According to Spoiler TV, the usual suspects are making their appearance:
26-32, a smart and attractive woman with an MBA. She started as a pilot and now runs Ferris Aircraft. She is a work-a-holic…FEMALE LEAD
[DR. HECTOR HAMMOND]
27-35, Character actor who is austere and impersonal, he is real “scummy.” He is a pathologist and also the son of a Senator.
Mid-30s to Mid-40s, he is smart, tough, intimidating and in great physical shape.
Mid-30s to mid-40s, he is a great warrior.
It interesting that Abin Sur isn’t going the all CGI route ala Doctor Manhattan in Watchmen.Â And, with Hector Hammond and Sinestro both appearing in the film, one my expect Sinestro to be on the side of the green light in this first film before his ultimate corruption to the Yellow Lanterns in flick number two.
Fans at the San Diego Comic-Con were told that more Lantern rings would be on the way, and if Bleeding Cool has the news right, then you might be able to get your hands on all of ‘em if you and your local comic shop are willing to spend some money.
So for every 25 copies of Doom Patrol #4, Booster Gold #26, R.E.B.E.L.S. #10, Outsiders â€˜24 andÂ your retailer orders, they can order a bag of fifty Sinestro rings, Agent Orange rings, Indigo Tribe rings and Star Sapphire rings respectively.
And for every 50 copies of Justice League of America#39, Blackest Night #5 and Adventure Comics #4 sees you with a bag of fifty Red Lantern rings, Green Lantern rings and Blue Lantern rings, also respectively.
Each ring will ship every two weeks, Yellow on November 4th, Orange on November 18th, Red on December 2nd, Green on December 16th, Blue on December 30th (well, December 23rd now, I guess, thanks to Comic Book-Free Day), Indigo on January 13th and Violet on January 27th.
Rich Johnson has a good point about this promotion over the Black Ring event earlier this year in that these issues don’t have high sell rates, which would mean retailers would have to purchase more, just to qualify for the ring order – something they may not be willing to do if the issues don’t sell.
Easy solution?Â Buy the book, get the ring. Problem solved.Â DC numbers soar through the roof as Green Lantern fans buy books to get the rings, shop owners get more people into the store buying books, so their bottom line rises as well, and the recycling companies get a boost in business, as Green Lantern fans ditch the book they just bought in favor of a piece of non-biodegradeable plastic.
Green Lantern: First Flight, the highly-anticipated fifth entry in the popular DVD series of DC Universe animated original PG-13 movies, will have its world premiere at Comic-Con in San Diego on Thursday, July 23, 2009.
More than 4,000 fans will have the opportunity to see Green Lantern: First Flight on the big screen five days before the latest DC Universe film is distributed on DVD and Blu-Rayâ„¢ Hi-Def. The film will premiere in the San Diego Convention Centerâ€™s Ballroom 20 at 8:00 p.m.
A panel comprised of filmmakers and voice cast will be presented on the following day, Friday, July 24. Details on that panel and its participants will be announced next week.
Continuing one of the greatest Secret Origins stories Iâ€™ve ever had the pleasure of reading, the powerhouse that is Geoff Johns is writing Green Lantern to a tee. And as much as weâ€™ve had a massive amount of Johns-love this past week with SDCC, I have no choice but to really continue the trend.
