Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)
It didn't resemble Secret Origins because they meshed it with their original draft...but they did attempt to include stuff from it in the fillm, I forget what writer stated it, but they read it when it came out and were inspired by elements of it. Anyway. Yeah stay away from that Origins Arc.
About the only thing the movie has in common with Secret Origin is that an alien named Abin Sur crash lands on Earth and gives Hal Jordan a ring.
I think they're full of crap, just like the movie.
