What would summer be without a Marvel movie? We’ve spent summers captivated by iron Man, Captain America, The Avengers, Thor and this summer? This summer we’ll be greeted by the Guardians of the Galaxy!
I saw the trailer to Guardians of the Galaxy during my time in Los Angeles for the Million Dollar Arm Event. It looks like an action-packed, epic adventure that takes place in space!
You heard e, Marvel’s taking superheroes into the cosmos with adventurer Peter Quill who finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
I’m not sure who my favorite character is going to be in this movie. Groot looks awesome but there’s something about Rocket the Racoon–only I don’t think he likes being called a racoon!
Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which first appeared in comic books in Marvel Super-Heroes, Issue #18 (Jan. 1969)–ha! the year I was born!, stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Nova Prime Rael and Benicio Del Toro as The Collector. Quite an amazing cast; don’t you agree?
James Gunn is the director of the film with Kevin Feige, p.g.a., producing. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jeremy Latcham, Alan Fine and Stan Lee serve as executive producers. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is written by James Gunn and Nicole Perlman and releases in U.S. theaters on August 1, 2014.
