^^A little shout-out to the late-great Mark Gruenwald would have been nice too, but I'll just be happy that we might be getting a GotG movie.

The current version of Guardians of the Galaxy was pretty good--they were kinda like Starfleet officers on acid to some extent, IMO--but I also liked the previous version in the '90s which was very much "superheroes in space" (complete with impractical spandex costumes even).

Not sure how those costumes are any more "impractical" than the ones seen in the promo artwork for the film. Most of the original Guardians of the Galaxy were created in the 70s.

Marvel has brought in a new screenwriter for a re-write.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

First plot details describe the movie as being...

"...about a U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants.”

Ah, that sounds exactly NOT like Guardians of the Galaxy in either iteration.

You really think sexy, ultra-tight superhero costumes in space are practical?

Then they need to bring in Ben Browder.

He would have been a great Hal Jordan. Him or Nathan Fillion.

^Well, Nathan Fillion has played Hal in the last two animated movies with the character, and he's voicing him in Robert Chicken's DC Special. So he's pretty clearly Hal already.

True.
So perhaps the reason Exhibit A exists is because of Exhibit B?

Still, why would they green light this project if they didn't like the main thrust of what they already had? How major a rewrite are we talking? A page one rewrite or just some fine tuning?

Well, the US pilot who ends up in space could be Star-Lord.

Most likely since Feige's list of characters for the press release mentioned him AND he's in the artwork.

Still be nice if it was astronaut traveling to the nearest solar system Vance Astro.

I was thinking that they seemed to be combining traits from both Astro and Quill for the movie Starlord, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. However, I do think that they should've kept Quill a Brit.

So will Rocket Racoon be played by a midget in a suit or will he be CGI?
