We’ve got some exciting news about the companies working on X3’s special and visual effects. Though the company does not want to confirm or deny, at this moment, we understand that WETA Digital are on board to work on the movie’s visual effects! The New Zealand based Oscar-winning effects house credits include The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, Van Helsing, I, Robot and more recently they completed work on the highly-anticipated King Kong.

We can also exclusively tell you that Rhythm & Hues (X-Men, X2, LOTR, Superman Returns) started work on visual effects for Phoenix last month. Kleiser-Walczak (X-Men, X2) are also back to work on Mystique shots plus other work that has yet to be determined.
