Kevin Feige On How Marvel Will Keep GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY From Becoming GREEN LANTERN

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige briefly addresses how Guardians of the Galaxy will look to avoid the visual miscues that plagued Green Lantern. Visit our GotG section for more cosmic Marvel news.




There's no need to dive deep into the specifics of Green Lantern. By now, every comic book fan knows the details and if you're a youngster that didn't quite comprehend the tragic happenings of Summer 2011 while it was unfolding, a quick internet search will quickly bring you up to speed. Suffice to say, things did not go well for Warner Bros. and the cast of Green Lantern. So how does Marvel Studios plan to avoid those same pitfalls with their own space epic, Guardians of the Galaxy?

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?

Kevin 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."

The Marvel Studios President previously confirmed that GotG is 95% set in space, something that already sets it apart from Green Lantern. But if you apply what Feige says to Green Lantern does that equal a better film? Would a better (more traditional) costume, cooler and more elaborate constructs and a different take on Krona/Parallax have changed the critic and fan reception on Green Lantern? Sound off below in the usual spot with your opinion.
