It seems that DC’s much maligned movie adaptation of Green Lantern is now being seen as a lesson in what to avoid when bringing a sci-fi heavy superhero film to the big screen. Marvel’s Kevin Feige, in particular, has recently talked to i09.com and stressed that the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy will avoid turning into another Green Lantern. Feige also discussed the use of CG in Iron Man 3:
“Iron Man 3 has as much CG as any movie we’ve ever made, and I hope it doesn’t feel like Green Lantern,” says Feige. “It’s all about the aesthetic you go for.
“Already we have an art department as impressive as any art department I’ve ever seen in London on Guardians. And it’s, you know, designing things and believing that they’re real when part of the team’s made up of a raccoon and a tree.”
CG scenes became one of the most criticized aspects of the Green Lantern film, with many viewers seeing it as too unrealistic and out of place when to compared to the live action parts of the film. Since Guardians of the Galaxy is set entirely outside of Earth, there is a chance that Marvel won’t have to deal with the same problem.
