Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC entertainment* announced today that they are bringing Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters to the Nintendo Wii. The action-adventure game will be released in conjunction with Warner Bros. Pictures’ epic super hero feature film Green Lantern, which is due for release in Summer 2011.

Here’s Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, talking about the game.

The game is the first to centre around DC Comics’ Green Lantern franchise and we’re excited to give fans the opportunity to experience the power of the ring with engaging gameplay.”Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is expected to be released in summer 2011.
