This is just too crazy-weird to not succeed.

This will either kick ass or suck ass. I hope it's the former.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I hope it's the former, too. But I'm an optimist...

I found an official synopsis on another site:
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team–the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill 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 Peter 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. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
Might this orb be yet another Infinity Gem (or stone, as they were referred to in Thor: The Dark World)?

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Seconded re: the Raccoon.

Wondering if any writing systems generated for the movie will be released as font downloads for interested fans.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Well, I'm digging the cast photo. I really hope this is awesome and finds an audience. This is easily the toughest sell of all the Marvel movies so far.

I don't know the comics, but so far everything I've seen for this has looked great, and the concept sounds like a lot of fun.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Sounds like a good idea. My original familiarity with the Marvel universe came from the 90s X-Men and Spider-Man cartoons (with a handful of Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer, and Iron Man episodes I saw). Thor was completely unfamiliar until the movies and I hadn't even heard of Guardians of the Galaxy until it was announced. Hopefully, it'll be a good series that does justice to that comic series and can bring in a new audience. I love Spider-Man, but "yet another Spider-Man cartoon" is apt.

Of course, it's slightly different in that the comic seems to be a spinoff of the movie. I wonder if it's part of the MCU or not.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I actually read the entire space storyline and reintroduction of the Guardians a few years back. I am looking forward to this move about as much as I've looked forward to anything. Bradley Cooper as Rocket is a great choice!

As long as this movie is done with the same fidelity as has been given to Cap, Thor, and Iron Man then this movie will be the highlight of the summer!

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I can see where a GotG animated series could be a lot of fun. The only thing I find disappointing is that it will probably be on Disney XD.

Thanks, this is just enough infomation to make things interesting, I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie now.

The cast photo is pretty cool. I'm really hoping its good, and makes money. I love the Marvel superhero movies, but its always nice to have something different, and this could be really good.
