Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Gunn issues an apology...
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 donít think itís 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. Iím sorry and regret making them at all.

People who are familiar with me as evidenced by my Facebook page and other mediums know that Iím 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. Weíre all in the same camp, and I want to do my best to make this world a better place for all of us. Iím 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.

That didn't take too long at least.

I marvel at the default position nowadays that any perceived wrongdoing must be apologized for publicly. Without it, the people complaining wouldn't know when to move on to the next shockingly offensive situation.

I have to admit, this was my first exposure to Gunn, but after hearing more abut him I do think all of this (including my original post) has been a major over reaction.

Well, as long as you weren't judging his whole character based on a single blog entry submitted 2 years ago...

Maybe we need some Gunn control.

Yeah, I'd like him or Gordon-Levitt or Lee Pace or Gareth Hedlund or James Marsden....it's getting hard to choose at this point, but I think I'll switch my vote from Marsden to Rosenbaum.

John Krasiniski is also rumored to be in consideration for Star-Lord.
WWE wrestler Dave Bautista, Isaiah Mustafa aka The Old Spice Guy, and Brian Patrick Wade are being considered for Drax.

Chris Pratt is Starlord.

Of all of the names on the list, they managed to go with one I've never heard of,.

Chris Pratt---the guy that when I saw Zero Dark Thirty was puzzled cause all I knew he from was Parks and Rec(I show I don't like). I thought, how'd he get this role? Still in ZD30 he was not a bumbling idiot like my P&R experience had indicated.

I can't say I'm sold on the casting so I wait to be impressed and trust they've chosen well.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Well, it's been a good week for the Abbott kids with Marvel Studios.

I wonder what other roles in the MU we can fill with the cast of Everwood?

I liked him in Moneyball as well
