Warner Bros. Interactive has released the first trailer for the video game tied to the summer film Green Lantern. Developed by Double Helix, “Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters” will be based off Ryan Reynold’s Green Lantern rather that the comic book version.
“Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters” will debut in June for the Nintendo DS, the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Here’s the game’s official synopsis:
The Manhunters are an android race, originally created by the Guardians of the Universe to serve as the first interstellar police force. The Manhunters became more obsessed with administering punishment than serving justice, forcing the Guardians to dissolve their ranks. The few Manhunters that survived fled into exile and the Guardians founded a new elite police force called the Green Lantern Corps and armed its members with specially crafted power rings. Now the Manhunters are back and out for revenge, readying their forces for a war against the Guardians and the Green Lantern Corps. Faced with destruction, the Corps is looking to you as the newest recruit, gifted but cocky test pilot Hal Jordon, to protect peace and preserve justice. Building on the anticipation of Warner Bros.’ feature film Green Lantern, in theaters June 17, 2011, Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters includes the likeness and voice talent of Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, who is the star of the upcoming motion picture.
