Guardians of the Galaxy



Quote:
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige officially announced that the fourth movie of Marvel's "phase two," following its Iron Man, Thor and Captain America sequels, will definitely be Guardians of the Galaxy. He even unveiled the lineup of the team of galactic superheroes: Starlord, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Groot and, of course, Rocket Raccoon (there is something somewhat hallucinatory about typing that last name).

Marvel fans will note that this is not the classic Guardians team from 1969, which featured folks like Vance Astro, Martinex T'Naga and Yondu. This is the 2008 version, which has ties to Thanos, which means he might show up in this movie before we meet him again in The Avengers 2.

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

I like it. I'm looking into reading some of their stuff. I liked the characters involved in the Annihilation story arch. Also seems like a good way to tie Thanos to the Avengers.

Obscurity should HELP the film

Quote:
It's the lighthearted, fun, quip-filled, bouncy stuff that fits in pretty well with all the stuff they're already doing, and going out into space will be a nice change of setting. Everyone has a firm idea of who and what Spider-Man is. If you stray too far from that, people will say, 'That's not the Spider-Man that I know,' and they're disappointed. Whereas if you throw a bunch of characters like Drax on a movie screen, there are relatively few people who have some idea in their head.

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

Why Whedon thinks James Gunn will do right by Marvel's Guardians



Quote:
"James is what makes me think it will work. I myself was sort of like, 'Well, I liked Rocket Raccoon as a kid, but I'm not sure how that plays [to a more mature crowd]," revealed Whedon. "And then they said, 'Well, we're thinking about using James Gunn.' And I said, 'Oh no, you're fine.'"

So what makes Gunn the right man for the job? Whedon believes he has a fresh and "twisted take" on the characters.

"He is so off the wall, and so crazy, but so smart, such a craftsman and he builds from his heart. He loves the raccoon. Needs the raccoon. This is the guy who wrote The Specials, which is one of the most important movies. People don't understand how influential that movie was about heroes, about taking heroes and making them mundane," said Whedon.

"And [he directed] Super," he continued. "He's got a very twisted take on it, but it all comes from a real love of the material. It's going to be hard for the humans to keep up. I know he's going to come from left field and I'm going to go, 'What?' And then, 'Of course, why didn't I think of that?' And then I'm going to beat him!"

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

Iron Man to cameo

Quote:
While at New York Comic Con, Marvel debuted the cover to the new Guardians of the Galaxy comic. It featured an appearance by Iron Man, which had people wondering about his connection to the movie. Now unconfirmed reports claim that Marvel does have plans for an Iron Man cameo.
This movie could certainly use a dose of star power. They should put him in the trailer even if he doesn't cameo.

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy director blasted over sexist online poll

Quote:
James' site played host on two separate occasions to a poll of top 50 superheroes people most want to have sex with. To his credit, James did poll fans extensively and made sure to include both fictional men and women on the list. He also took care to pay due credit to the artists who have made many of those characters popular. So far, so good.

Unfortunately, in addition to providing the list, Gunn also added his own, personal color commentary, and that, folks, is where we run into trouble. While this is the Internet and authorial intent can sometimes be lost, every online writer has to accept that there are consequences to what they choose to write. So maybe when Gunn referred to Gambit as a "cajun fruit" and said he hoped that Tony Stark "turned" Batwoman away from being a lesbian, he should have thought better. Or at least thrown in a "jk, LOL" at the bottom. Anything.

Instead, we get unabashed references to Gunn's penis all over the entire poll, not to mention the mocking of female superheroes for having sex, continually calling several of the male heroes "gay" in a derogatory fashion, and alluding to several of the women being forced to do lewd acts against their will.

So, naturally, someone on the Internet found the poll even though it was a year old and shared it on tumblr. From there, people immediately began to call for Gunn to be fired from Guardians of the Galaxy. Unsurprisingly, attempts were made to take the poll down, but the Internet is forever and Google cache ensured that the poll remained available to anyone who might want to peruse it.
Ouch. Nice knowing ya.

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

Not really, the worst offense of it was that it was insanely juvenile. However, it was a list of made up characters that people want to bang, in order. the part everyone was offended by was "turning" a lesbian. Then they all of a sudden equated it to him saying that she should be raped to be turned straight. Then all of us guys look at each other awkwardly not understanding how we got to rape and then bam! He promotes raping lesbians. When it he was merely saying that no woman can resist Stark's charms. Oh well, lesbians ruin something else that's fun.

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

Casting for the lead has begun.

Quote:
Marvel is setting up screentests for Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord. He's the half-human, half-alien leader of the Guardians. Thus far, the studio's candidates include Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Lee Pace (The Hobbit) and Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables).

Other actors whose names are being thrown are James Marsden, who's best known as Scott Summers/Cyclops in the X-Men trilogy. Hey, if Chris Evans can be the Human Torch and Captain America, Marsden can double-dip, too!

There's also Tron: Legacy's Garrett Hedlund, who's no stranger to the Marvel casting process. He was also in the running for Captain America before Evans made a deal. Rounding out the list is Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton, who currently stars on Cinemax's Strike Back.
Just not James Marsden... please.

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

James Gunn apologizes for "attempted humor" of sexy superhero poll.

Quote:
A couple of years ago I wrote a blog that was meant to be satirical and funny. In rereading it over the past day I don't think it's funny. The attempted humor in the blog does not represent my actual feelings. However, I can see where statements were poorly worded and offensive to many. I'm sorry and regret making them at all. People who are familiar with me as evidenced by my Facebook page and other mediums know that I'm an outspoken proponent for the rights of the gay and lesbian community, women and anyone who feels disenfranchised, and it kills me that some other outsider like myself, despite his or her gender or sexuality, might feel hurt or attacked by something I said. We're all in the same camp, and I want to do my best to make this world a better place for all of us. I'm learning all the time. I promise to be more careful with my words in the future. And I will do my best to be funnier as well. Much love to all!
I believe that GLAAD posting this on their site is basically them accepting his apology. Does this mean he will get to keep his job? Stay tuned.

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

New synopsis:

Quote:
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (Marvel) will be available in 3D.

Releases on 8/1/14.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, based on the Marvel comic books of the same name, features an unlikely cast of characters who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions. James Gunn will direct.
So it looks like this is still actually happening. Can't wait to see how they pull this one off.

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

Casting has expanded to include Adam Sandler and/or Jim Carrey.

Quote:
According to Latino Review, a site that seems to specialize in Marvel Studios rumors with varying degrees of truth, the studio is hoping to bring in Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler (or possibly just one or the other) to fill a role or two in the superhero flick. It's hard to tell at this point whether the two would be competing for one role or whether they'd each take a part, but either way their names have just been officially added to the Internet movie rumor maelstrom.

So who would they possibly be playing? The most obvious choices, at least when we're talking about members of the Guardians, are Rocket Raccoon and Groot, but there are always supporting funny roles and even villains to consider, none of which have even been named yet. And hey, it's still worth considering the possibility that they won't necessarily be playing comedic or comedically tinged roles. They've both gone serious before, with varying degrees of success. Of course, it's also possible this rumor will be killed by another rumor tomorrow, but such is the way of the Web.
Interesting possibilities. I have always defended Jim Carrey's performance as the Riddler. I think he could do a good job here.
