Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

An interesting revelation in a James Gunn podcast...

“Marvel only partially owns Skrulls,” Gunn said on the podcast. “Also, we don’t own the Badoon either.” The latter of which may hit some fans hard, who are always eager to see the MCU expand. It’s likely that the Badooon are licensed to 20th Century Fox, the studio that owns the movie rights to X-Men and the Fantastic Four.
I think the Badoon first appeared in a Silver Surfer comic.

Interestingly enough, the Badoon HAVE been used in a comic set in the MCU.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

^^ You're right, they did first appear in the first Silver Surfer comic, although they were better known as the enemies of the original Guardians.

What happened is they got a full trailer next. I'm saying wait until then because it'll give a more accurate picture (although movies like Bridge to Terabithia we're marketed with deliberately misleading trailers so you can never tell). Not that I personally care if it's goofy, it sounds like it'll have a good heart.
I hope you're right, but I don't see any heart-- I just see an 80s beer movie.

Only because that's what you want to see. There's nothing about that trailer that screams "80s beer movie," and it's not even coming across as a comedy so much as one with some humor in it (and yes, there's a huge difference). All the quick scenes between the "Hooked on a Feeling" bits show the movie is about a *lot* more there than the humorous introduction of the characters.

It's like trying to say that Farscape (which is what the trailer actually screams) or Firefly were comedies or "80s beer <shows>."

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

To me, both the trailer and all descriptions of the characters so far show the movie is about camaraderie and friendship. These are people who are lost or broken, but find strength together. I think that shows the movie will hopefully have a good heart. Of course, we can't know for sure just yet.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

My feeling is that this movie will be about at the comedy level of Lethal Weapon. You could cut a trailer from that film that makes it look like nothing but goofball antics, but that wouldn't be an accurate description of the movie.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Yes, I think we will have some light moments but an overall decent action/super-hero movie. It is really quite a brilliant move on the part of the marketing department. Trying to portray Rocket and Groot more seriously in a two minute trailer would only generate laughs and gibes from people not familiar with the source material. This trailer is great in the sense that it uses humor to draw potential viewers in and then shows the action sequences.

See, like everyone says, the actual movie won't be like the trailer. What a great trailer! Just use slow motion to see the quick flashes at the end.

Plus it's got a raccoon with a machine gun. A raccoon with a machine gun! Seriously, have you heard there's a raccoon with a machine gun?

I kid a bit there, I am looking forward to it but I do hope the humor in the movie isn't all "Look how out of place this is!". And trailers can be way off base and if this is actually more of an extended teaser it's hopefully OK. It looks like there's a lot of "out there" stuff in this movie so there's probably some worry about keeping it on the right side of "over the top" to not scare people away.

I'm thinking of Star-Lord's appearance and behavior, the Walkman, the slovenly, snarky cops and the run-down police station, stuff like that.

Well, I hope you're right. They certainly are broken, but not in a way I sympathize with, at least not from the trailer.

Yeah, that's the thing. A talking alien raccoon is a cute idea, but what's the appeal that they're going for? He's "badass" with a Tommy gun. Tommy guns in space. Walkmans in space. Leather trenchcoats in space. Fat asshole cops in space.

The problem is that it doesn't look "over the top" to me. It looks like a generic, dark, juvenile action movie. It looks like a parody of a movie trailer. The only thing missing is somebody walking toward the camera in slow motion while something blows up in the background. That's what I find disappointing.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

As others have pointed out, this looks like Farscape: The Movie. Considering how serious all the superhero movies I've seen in the past 3-4 years have been, a tongue-in-cheek movie that actually has a little fun would be a welcome change of pace..as long as it doesn't turn out like Green Hornet.

(And, if it does well, maybe we'll actually get Farscape: The Movie).

Still, this is obviously just a teaser designed to ease some pretty bizarre characters the audience's way. As always, I'll hold out for the reviews.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

How many of you guys have seen Slither? That's the only James Gunn movie I've seen so far, and I thought he did a great job of mixing the humor and horror elements in that one, and I'm pretty sure we'll be getting the same here only with sci-fi action elements.

Well, that's it exactly. It's not about humor-- it's about the level and quality of the humor.

Are people seriously judging the ENTIRE MOVIE based on a TWO MINUTE TRAILER?

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Whatever the film ends up being, it's clear that the people that made the trailer want their audience to get the feeling that this is a comedic action sci-fi adventure. Like Iron Man meets The Dirty Dozen...in space! That alone has me interested. After all the overwrought nonsense that was DKR & MoS I'm more than willing to embrace the idea of *fun* comic book films again.
