Kevin Feige hopes that Guardians of the Galaxy won't feel like Green Lantern in terms of CG

04.24.2013

I thought this was interesting because it brings up CG in comic films as well as the disappointment of GREEN LANTERN (for most). Why are they being brought together? Kevin Feige made comments on how the CG in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY will be in comparison to other comic films as well as GREEN LANTERN.

This was the exchange with Io9.com and Feige:

Io9: For Guardians of the Galaxy, that’s a movie that’s going to have a fair amount of CGI, with the alien creatures in space. And how do you prevent that from going the Green Lantern route?

Feige: Well the same way, Iron Man 3 has as much CG as any movie we’ve ever made, and I hope it doesn’t feel like Green Lantern. And it’s all about the aesthetic you go for and 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.

As we already know, GUARDIANS for 95% will take place in space. So you can see where the CG aspect might be a little troubling. If you go overboard then it's automatically a shitty disappointment. But we've done movies that involve space and other worlds, and quite a few of those came out spectacularly. I'm really rooting for this film to do well.

What will be the key to GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY being a success?

Put the story first and everything will be ok. That's what GL suffered from, not bad CGI. At this point I trust Marvel way more than DC.

See Hell Boy and Men in Black for believable creatures. See Star Wars 1-3 for how not to do it.

Not like GL??

That's a strange thing to say..I can see if they said it's not like Green Lantern because of the story elements and such but GL's FX's were great. I never thought that was one of the problems with that movie EVER!
I always thought Green Lantern would have been 100% better if they chose a different lead character, sorry Reynolds this just wasn't your part, and if the story took place in Space somewhere; you know 10% Earth & 110% Space!!
But to say that the FX's were a problem for GL, doesn't

"I hope it doesn’t feel like Green Lantern"

Green Lantern actually holds up well on TV but given its box office I can't fault Kevin Feige for not wanting GotG to be compared with GL.

CGI in Green Lantern was very good

the problems with that movie were all story, im sure Feige knows that but maybe he just wanted to throw a shot at wb/dc with Man of Steel on the way

He was just answering the question. He doesn't actually knock dc or green lantern once if you read his answer. He just said it shouldn't feel like GL, and it shouldn't. It's guardians of the galaxy.

How to handle CGI

They should give James Cameron a call.

Green Lantern was crap for him using that stupid hot wheels track to stop that incoming helicopter. God that movie was so stupid.

On the topic of the article though, CGI wasn't bad. Except for the shitty fat cloud Parallax.

Green Lantern isn't that bad. It's mediocre and not as good as I expect it to be. For me, the problems are too much storytelling and lack of action scenes. And when those action scenes arrived, they were "Wham. Bam. Done. Next scene". It's just an okay film and the CG isn't bad either.

I know Green Lantern wasn't the greatest film in the world and could have been better, but I wish everyone would just stop bashing it already. The film was average at best (even though I thought it was great).

The hating on this and John Carter need to stop. Shit's getting old and redundant. There's been worse films.

To call the film "average at best" is to say that the highest rating one could give it would be "average." This would imply that a significant portion of the population would describe it as below average. For the high expectations, the huge success of comic book movie adaptations, the 200 million dollar production budget, and the fact that it was supposed to be a major summer blockbuster, it should be seen as a massive failure. The 26% rotten tomatoes score and 116 million dollar domestic

I think its very fair to call Green Lantern average, the story was horrible, cast was good and i didnt think the cgi was bad at all (parallax not withstanding) had someone rewrote the story, made it more personal and had a lot more sinestro/hal time the movie would have been a lot better, even so it was a lot better than elektra, daredevil, both fantastic 4s, x3, batman forever, batman and robin, jonah hex, sucker punch and so on

Dont drag John Carter down with Green Lantern. I havent heard anything bad that doesn't relate to how much money it made. Green Lantern was just bad. It wasn't a disaster like "Batman and Robin" but it was still a bad film.

But i know there are several "bad' films that i like, so to each his own.

Remember back when Martin Campbell explained that Green Lantern will be more like Iron Man than The Dark Knight. Sure he was talking about the tone of the movie, but its nice to see things coming full circle.

Like "Monster University", it's not the movie i was hoping the company would tackle next, but it's one i'm excited for none the less.
