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.

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

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 ??

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!

Do you mean the Guardians of the Galaxy?

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?

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.

First bit of casting that I'm really uninmpressed by. I got bored of her quickly on Doctor Who. I really can't see her as a villain in a comic book film.

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!

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!

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!

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