Yeah, this isn't going to be very good.
Don't le tthe talking racoon throw you. In the issues of Guardians I've read, he's a very engaging character.

The tree is pretty cool, too.

Really.
His 4 issue limited series from the 80s was a fun read.

Of course this movie will be a bit weird. That's kind of the whole point. Some will love it some will hate it. Why shouldn't Marvel Cinematic Universe get a bit cosmic?

I never followed the cosmic arm of Marvel. Does anyone know of a good site that would maybe give an overview or a place to start?

Cool. Not only is Zoe Saldana smokin' hot she's a good actress as well. Now I'm actually interested in this movie.

I thought they were pretty cool in the Avengers cartoon appearance.

The space version of the Avengers

A very odd choice for a movie but maybe Marvel is testing if the scifi comic book genre is alive, it might open the door for other movies

Maybe start with some of the cosmic oriented stories of the Fantastic Four as a lot of cosmic characters first appeared in that title, the older runs of Silver Surfer are also good. The Annihilation books are also a good read the modern Guardians of the Galaxy originated from that event.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Michael Rooker, aka Merle on Walking Dead, has signed on to play Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy. Yondu was a member of the original Gene Colon '69 version of the team.

Michael Rooker, who was fantastic on his now-completed run on AMC’s The Walking Dead, has been cast as one of the four founding superheroes of Guardians Of The Galaxy, the Marvel Studios pic that James Gunn is helming. He will play Yondu, who in Marvel lore was a game hunter of a primitive tribe native to Centauri IV, the first planet system to be colonized outside of the Sun’s solar system. He eventually bands together with fellow fugitives to form the superhero team

Aw, you just beat me to it.

Yondu? Interesting. I wonder if we'll get any more original Guardians.

Merle as Yondu? Weird choice. I never thought of Yondu as that old, for one thing.

If this means all the original Guardians will be present, my interest level has increased.

They seem silly. No comparison to the Avengers. Not really interested in this movie.

I actually just watched that Avengers: EMH a couple weeks ago, and I was surprised they went with such a different team than what we are getting in the movie.
