Thor And Green Lantern Square Off In 2011


We all know that the movies Thor and Green Lantern are squaring of in the Spring 2011 box office. So it's know surprise both movies are going to have video games released around the same time.

Sega is bringing us Thor the video game, while Double Helix is bringing us Green Lantern Rise Of The Manhunters. So looks like Thor and Green Lantern have more competition then they think.
 While Thor the video game will be based on the movie alone, Rise of the Manhunters is more of a movie tie in/sequel.
Many worries from Thor fans have spread because Sega (Developer of the infamous Iron Man 2 the video game) is handling the game. They have released some concept art showing Ascard as a main setting.

Thor writer Matt Fraction is helping with the games development.Some of the villains will be Ulik,Yimir, and Surtur. The game will be released for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, and PSP. The teaser trailer has recentlly been released from Sega:

On the other hand Warner Bros hasn't released much information on rise of the manhunters. But we do know it will be about the evil robot manhunters who were the first attempt of the Guardians of the Universe to create an interstellar police force that would combat evil all over the cosmos.

Their name and much of their code of behavior was modeled by the Guardians of the Universe on the Manhunters of Ma'aleca'andra (Mars) (This creates an apparent chronology problem, since the Manhunters were created many millions of years ago, while the Green Martian race came into existence from the Burning Martians only about 20,000). For thousands of years, they served the Guardians well.

However, the Manhunters became obsessed with the act of 'hunting' criminals. Their code, "No man escapes the Manhunters" (corrupted from the original), became more important to them than seeing justice done.

This game will be released for Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, and DS. The game will be more of a sequel/tie in to the upcoming Green Lantern film. You can read more about the game here.

No matter which is better, I'm looking forward to both movies and games. These two will square off in Spring 2011.
