    Default Guardians of the Galaxy (Marvel) - News/Discussion/Speculation

    Marvel Considering 'Iron Fist' & 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' Movies, 'Black Panther' & 'Guardians Of The Galaxy,' Too!

    Beyond "Runaways," little is known about Marvel's plans for how to proceed once "The Avengers" lands in theaters. Speaking with MTV News, Marvel studio chief Kevin Feige discussed some of the possible projects they're looking at as follow-ups to the "Avengers" franchise once all's said and done on Iron Man, Thor and Captain America's first big screen team-up.

    "I think what Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction have done with 'Iron Fist' lately is exciting," Feige told MTV News. "I think 'Black Panther' and Wakanda has some amazing potential to be a feature film. 'Doctor Strange,' as you've mentioned. There are some obscure titles, too, like 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' I think they've been revamped recently in a fun way in the book."

    Of course, Marvel already has its fair share of established characters that could carry their own film, such as War Machine, Black Widow and — most especially, considering his reported nine picture deal — Samuel L. Jackson's very own Nick Fury. Is it possible that fans will ever see a Fury-centric film? "I think the answer is yes," said Feige. "I think S.H.I.E.L.D. could be it's own franchise. I think, frankly, 'The Avengers' is going to be told from that point of view more so than any of the other films at that point, so we're going to get an inside look [at how S.H.I.E.L.D.] operates."

    Guardians?! It would certainly be an interesting movie about dysfunctional people in space... but I don't see it happening.

    Neither do I, heck I completely forgot about the Guardians until I saw this thread brought up.

    The Guardians are doing some very cool things in the comics right now, but the farthest Marvel should get into its cosmic library in film is the Silver Surfer. The Infinity Gauntlet seems to be playing a part in Thor/The Avengers, so we'll see how that goes.

    First trailer for this, looks good.

    Also, did I spot
    Spoiler:
    the Collector from the end of Thor 2?

    You did indeed...

    Spoiler:
    ... spot Mr. Del Toro as the Collector.


    Hmmm... I'm a little sceptical about this trailer, but they normally release more than one so I'll reserve judgement at this point.

    Got back from the cinema a few hours ago. It's mostly pretty solid. Very entertaining. It looks absolutely amazing, too. I thought I was going to absolutely hate Rocket, but I loved him. A little silly in places, which seems to be the way Marvel plays their films not set on Earth. I can understand why they do it, but sometimes it does distract from the tension in the film a little too much.

    Overall though, it was a blast! A really good introduction to the characters and their universe.

    By chance, did the film go into any aspect of how a human was that far out in space?

    I loved it! Highly entertaining ride! Lived up to my expectations and exceeded them in many regards. Despite its PG-13 rating the marketing seems to be aiming at kids, so I thought it would do a lot of pandering to children. Pleasantly surprised because this is NOT a kids movie. James Gunn sure has come a long way since his days with Troma and that is so great to see. And that is not a slam on Troma. I just mean that he has made it from no budget Troma movies to huge budget Disney movies.

    I, like Starship Trooper, thought I was going to hate Rocket and I loved him. I really liked the whole cast. Dave Bautista greatly impressed me. Lee Pace was fantastic. I can't wait to see it again. My one big disappointment was the post-credit scene. Entertaining, but not what I wanted to see.

    Saw it again. Loved it just as much in 2D. Only detractor was the theater had several people who brought small children. This is NOT a children's movie! Ugggggghhhhhh I just wanted to scream that the whole time. It says "Rated PG-13" for a reason. I don't entirely blame them because I know Disney is trying to market it as a kids movies with kids toys and the like, but parents should know better.

    I am very surprised that I am the only person who has had anything to say about this movie this week.

    I had a rollicking good time there, ever since Quill started dancing to 'Come and Get your Love'. Found myself wanting to jump up and dance to the 70s groove. From then onwards, I loved it all. Great summer movie, if you ask me.

    I completely agree about the post-credit scene. Usually it's a scene that contributes to the ongoing Marvel canon or at least, would provide a hint of what's going to be the focus of the next Marvel movie. But this...well, fun but disappointing. It made me want to say..."I stayed for this?!"

    Exxxxccceeelllent. Yes, the more I thought about it afterwards, the more I thought that it's so hard to fault - it knows what it is and doesn't pretend to be anything else and it's fun, fun, fun from start to finish!

    Where's that Loki when you need him? Lesson: always bring Loki to the cinema.

    I think that sums it up. If I get a chance I think I'll see it a 3rd time.

    Saw it a third time. Really surprised how fast it seemed to go by. I still really enjoyed it despite the fact it just seemed to fly by this time. And I really hope people are getting embarrassed when they bring small children to see this and find out the talking raccoon is a foul-mouthed talking raccoon. The sad part is that there are people who are not embarrassed about it. They don't care that their children see a movie that has content small children shouldn't see because they want to see the movie.

    I loved it too. I like that fact that it holds up afterward when you think about it and discuss it. In some ways it even gets better.

    I agree that it's not really for small children because there is some swearing in there that I haven't even seen in other Marvel films, but I guess that's because of the kind of character Rocket Raccoon is (and the others too). I can understand why children younger than 13 would want to go. The tree (Groot) and the raccoon are very appealing to children. From the look of some of the promotional stuff one might even think they are there for the kids. But the rating for the film is clearly PG-13, so there is that.

    Yes that is one of the big things. It is Disney and they are totally marketing it to children and small children despite the fact that it is not for children under 13.
