As Ryan Reynolds dons the green spandex for his role in the Green Lantern movie in cinemas this summer, Warner Bros. Interactive and developer Double Helix are hard at work on the obligatory tie-in video game, Rise of the Manhunters. You can check out some new screens from the forthcoming game right here.

Set to continue the story from the Green Lantern movie, Rise of the Manhunters will see Hal Jordan - the first human to join the Green Lantern Corps - battling the titular race of extra-terrestrial robots who are bitter at losing their gig as the interstellar police force to the Green Lantern posse.

Have a look at eleven new screens in the gallery and a handful of the better ones below. Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is out on June 7th in North America and June 10th in Europe.

Looks good, but i suspect it'll be 'just another movie tie-in game'.

Looks decent...but so did Iron Man and that was just painful to play through but it had it's moments. This looks like that mixed with a little Fantastic Four sorta. GL has always been one of my fav DC characters. Will keep an eye on this.

I read IGN's previews on the few comic book movie games coming out soon (Thor,Captain America,Green Lantern) and they said that this one was pretty much the only one that could be a hint of good so that gives me hope that this won't flop to hard.

@ 5 - Arkham Asylum/Ctiy aren't tied into the movies at all which is a huge reason AA succeeded. Bats needed a good game too since his best previous game ironically was the NES movie tie in.

I'm waiting until this comes out to decide. These movie games usually look like they would be good and then you pick them up and they are just god awful

I don't have time to play all the awesome games, so definitely won't have time to even look at something this mediocre:-)

@ 14 - Touche sir and I'm rather suprised the movie rights didn't go with the modern GL of John Stewart. I'm fine with others taking up the mantle but I'm usually fans of the original. Hal is the only GL in my mind.

PS to my favorite Thumbs Downer - I hope you're having as much fun following me around as I am knowing that you actually have little else to do but act like you're going to stop me from posting (pssst - you're not). Act like an adult - You don't like me/my opinion - Get over it. Otherwise, have fun making an extra effort to try to deter me b/c the more you do it, the more I keep going and going and going...(Gauntlet Thrown)

I get thumbed down constantly Floid. Shouldn't take it so personally (we both know you do since you take time to even address these ppl:-)) Before you say anything, I don't use that dumb feature. Worst addition to website period. They should have changed it to thumbs up/down of actual news post as I asked...

@ 18 - I don't take it personally but it's comical and I get off on it. As I state, someone has the time and effort to go around just thumbing me rather than moving on with their apparently super awesome life of trolling websites. I have my thoughts and voice 'em, big deal. Whether I say anything about it or not - won't change a thing but I like letting them know that I'm having quite the laugh about it. There's a good lot of you on here that can either respect my opinion (long and trite as they may be) or ignore it. It's not rocket surgery. I ain't getting flagged or given a talkin' to from the mods/creators so I'm very much going to continue unabated
I agree you have a sound idea b/c this is what helped tank our previous website. That or they should give a comment add-on to it b/c it's seriously just an internet Ring and Run only I don't have to answer the door if I don't want to b/c then I'd have to dig back at the comment. I post and move on but occasionally, I do notice it.

I admit to not knowing much about GL, but the "Rise of the Manhunters" sounds like my last two girlfriends are going to go out on the town together.

On a serious note, the screens do look good but games aren't played at one frame per second. I hope this is a good action game at least on par with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but only time will tell.

@ #4 - Agreed about Iron Man. I finally went back and got the full K on it, and on the hardest difficulty it felt more like Tinfoil Man vs. The Missile Gang Rape Squad. I don't mind a game that's challenging, I prefer it actually, but that was ridiculous.

Yeah, the two types of comments that seems to get the most thumbs down are
1. Negative comments about the game in question, despite being honest opinions
2. Comments that are off topic and just taking up room, especially bickering

OT: I'm just going to give my honest opinion; movie tie-in games are typically terrible and there's no excuse for it. I'm more than likely not going to buy this at full price unless reviews after its release rave surprise success.

@ 25 - It can appear to have a black tint depending on the light but it's green.
