Guardians Of The Galaxy
 
So Chris Pratt has been cast in the lead role of the Star Lord in Guardians Of The Galaxy.Its a bold choice by Marvel to go with a unknown name but typical of their usual approach!

I'm unsure about this film as it will be totally different to any other Marvel superhero film so far.Its due to be released on the 31st July 2014

For me the selling point of this movie is director James Gunn. It's a bit like getting David Lynch to direct Return of the Jedi.

Motthus 01-03-2013 23:10

Yeah it is a different choice for the director but he may just be the right guy for the job!

silentNate 01-03-2013 23:13

The Guardians of the Universe are in control of the Green Lantern Corps :eek:

Marvel suck :p

I know literally nothing about The Guardians of the Galaxy except they're part of the Marvel universe.

So I wikipedied them. I am none the wiser.

Thanos has something to do with them tho. One or two of them help the Avengers to defeat Thanos ??

Motthus 02-03-2013 00:43

I think it is part of Marvel Phase Two plans to include them in the introduction of Thanos as we head towards Avengers 2

By the way Marvel have relaunched the Guardians Of The Galaxy comic this week for anyone who wants to get to know the characters before the films comes out!

I'm certainly confused now.. the Guardians of the Universe are a DC creation! :eek: :o :confused:

Do you mean the Guardians of the Galaxy? :eek:

This thread has always been titled Guardians Of The Galaxy as I started it but its an easy mistake to make!

I was a tad 'tired and emotional', apologies Motthus :o

Motthus 02-03-2013 17:21

It's ok no worries as it was late!

Motthus 30-05-2013 01:54

Glenn Close is rumored to be joining the cast of Guardians Of The Galaxy

Fairyprincess0 30-05-2013 21:57

Two words: rocket. Racoon.....:D

Motthus 31-05-2013 00:47

Yeah he is the part of the film that will be interesting to see how they do and also they have yet to announce who will voice him!

Hitchhiker553 01-06-2013 08:39

Karen Gillan joining the cast.

Benicio Del Toro has been cast in an unnamed part in Guardians Of The Galaxy.He has signed a multi film deal like Samuel L Jackson!

Gulftastic 03-06-2013 20:38

Even though I'm a comic geek, my knowledge of minor Marvel characters is weak (I've always been DC). Who is Karen Gillan likely to play?

Motthus 03-06-2013 20:44

I'm not sure myself even though I'm a comic book geek and Ive been reading the relaunched Guardians Of The Galaxy comics

jakeyv37 04-06-2013 11:35

This is one hell of a cast they are putting together. Established names, up and comers. i was initially hesitant about the film but with each announcement my expectations are continually being raised.

Motthus 15-06-2013 13:16

So John C Reilly has joined the cast as Rhomann Dey who is a human agent that deals between the Guardians and SHIELD on Earth

Motthus 15-06-2013 15:24

I don't think she will be a major villain as I think it's more likely that she will be a hench woman to the main villain!

Motthus 21-07-2013 03:31

So Karen Gillen has shaved her head for the role of Nebula in Guardians Of The Galaxy and they showed the trailer at Comic Con!

Appartently its very funny and there is a distinct Indiana Jones vibe to Chris Pratt character Star-Lord.Also 'Hooked on a feeling' was the musical cue for the trailer and Rocket Racoon was seen but not heard.The trailer appartently has a strong humourous tone throughout it.Hopefully they will release the trailer online!

Pic of bald Karen: http://i455.photobucket.com/albums/q...ps9930af6d.jpg

Doubt there would be many actress' up for that!

Motthus 21-07-2013 13:33

I guess they didn't give her much choice as she either did it or they would recast the role!

It's not as if Karen Gillen is a big name in Hollywood!

Gulftastic 21-07-2013 13:34

It better be a bloody good film to make up for doing that to Karen.
