Meanwhile at FOX, they have cast Billy Elliott as Ben Grimm

With FOX i'm just not as excited as I am with Marvel.





Their stuff looks drab. Even though they don't own all Marvel Characters at least embrace what they have.

Wolverine should wear his classic costume etc. They're not using their property to the fullest potential.

Yeah, it was just an intro to the characters. I don't think the actual movie will be quite so bubbly.
Yeah, that's what they said about Dark Shadows.
I don't recall anyone saying anything about Dark Shadows. The tone in the full-length trailers felt like a comedy there. We can't say the same about GOTG yet because we only have a teaser.
I love this "teaser" for the sheer fun of it but now I'm really wanting to see the "trailer" that gives us a hint of the what the story and tone of the movie is going to be.

I haven't read any of the GotG comics and when I'd first heard about the concept for the film, wasn't exactly convinced.

The trailer makes it look as though it might be fun though.

The only character who rings a bell is Rocket Raccoon who I might have seen in "The Masque of the Red Breath"?

I don't get it. What are we excited about? That was awful, right?
Nope, it wasn't. Sorry.
So we want movies to go back to Batman and Robin level silliness?
Yeah, it didn't strike me anywhere close to the same tone.
If anything, it reminded me more of action adventure movies of the 80s. More comic at the beginning as we are getting to know the characters and then it becomes more serious towards the end as the stakes rise.

My friend just watched the trailer. She said the film looks like Mystery Men and will fail.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

You're Welcome

What a brilliant closing tagline on your teaser poster that stays true to the thus seen tone of the film from your teaser trailer!!

Also, the snippet of Rocket talking is promising.


So Thor was a risk cause it's a Norse god in a cape in a sci-fi setting---but it worked and two films have made a billion+dollars

Captain America was a risk we were told cause America as a brand is tarnished + a silly period piece film with the protagonist in a red,white&blue outfit was ripe for failure

Now we have Marvel Studios next risk with a band of self proclaimed space Guardians featuring a talking raccoon and sentient bruiser tree sidekick that looks phenomenal.

Meanwhile at Warners they still can't grasp how to bring a pop culture icon to the big screen in Wonder Woman cause, well....it's a tricky and risky endeavor.

Pratt sounds a bit like Sam Witwer there. Though I keep picturing Seann William Scott in the role.

Exactly. Where's The Incredible Hulk? That movie was going to be expand the universe/lead to the Avengers too.


I suppose the reason that TIH isn't acknowledged on that poster is the fact that TIH was made by Universal, while everything else was Paramount.
