The only game I know by Double Helix was Silent Hill Homecoming.  I liked the game, but it didn't exactly make me a fan of Double Helix.  I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Regarding the GL movie ...

Me excited.  I love the DCU animated movies coming out.  So far they've all been great.  Final Frontier was fabulous.  Even the Wonder Woman movie that came out a few months ago was surprisingly good.  What I've read/seen of the new Green Lantern movie, I like.

The one thing it does mean is that if Reynolds has signed on to play Hal Jordan then he can't reasonable retain the mantle of Deadpool, which is a slight shame as I think his banter fits perfectly for that one.

Possibly a casting mis match???

I agree, i think Reynolds has mentioned that he'd like his own Deadpool movie, maybe he'll do it once shooting has finished on Green Lantern, maybe.

Not after the mess they made of him in Wolverine........

I think that they've ruined that one now sadly.

Ruined it ... yes.

But that doesn't mean FOX won't just ignore the flop and continue with a franchise the fans want.  I say, "BRING ON DEADPOOL!"   ;D

Release date will be Summer 2011, coincidentally the same time as the new Ryan Reynolds movie ;)

I'm not holding my breath for this one.....

Game based on a film based on a comic book.
Is it me or is it screaming that it's going to suck??

Makes me sad to think it :(
