With Green Lantern heading into production in the coming months, Warner Bros. has hired the VFX supervisors that will bring him to life. According to Variety, Karen Goulekas (The Day After Tomorrow) Kent Houston (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) and Jim Berney (I Am Legend) will be the people in charge of making the effects look real. Also, the studio has hired Sony Pictures Imageworks as the lead visual effects studio on the film. They’ve previously done Watchmen and Superman Returns and both of those films looked great.
With the combined experience of the team WB has hired for their next big comic book movie, I’m very confident this thing is going to look great. Green Lantern is scheduled for release June 17, 2011 with Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively as the leads.
