So are we supposed to think this movie will be nothing like the trailer?

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I for one hope GotG will be very much like the trailer, because the trailer makes it look like a ton of fun.

As far as humor goes, both The Avengers and Thor 2 got more laughs than many actual comedies at the screenings I attended.

No, my guess is we will get a Marvel movie similar in tone to the Iron Man movies, or Captain Marvel, or Thor...

The point that's trying to be made is that for those moaning that "it's a comedy", is that no, it's not. It's going to be an action film, like the other Marvel films, that has moments of comedy.

This FIRST trailer just chose to spotlight a few comedic moments in succession. Seriously, it's like some of the few complainers are brand new to the process of movie trailers.

The trailer also had a lot of action as well. We saw the main character( I'm not familiar with GotG) flying a space plane of some kind, the raccoon shooting some people up and a few other things. The Iron Man teaser was the Ac/DC scene, which had humor in it, Cap. teaser had humor in it and Thor 2 had a ton of humoresque in it, but was still pretty damn good and pretty serious. The comics themselves have cheesy humor in them and that goes for all comic books.

What's wrong with a little humor? It helps to separate the Marvel movies from the increasingly dreary and humorless DC movies.

Yeah. I don't get where the "it's a comedy" idea is coming from. I doubt it'll have anymore comedy in it than the other Marvel films have had. I mean, it's not like the trailer implied a lot of fart jokes and Adam Sandler in drag.

The only thing this trailer had in common with the first GL trailer is that both are comic properties with a dominant space theme.

This GotG trailer did not have any of the same issues of the first GL trailer. That first GL trailer had shoddy, unfinished f/x and it's humor attempts fell flat causing the internet to light up, largely, in a bad way. The GotG trailer did the exact opposite.

Any viewer whose go to is "It's Marvel's GL" is being unjustly reactionary and that's on them.

I still haven't seen GL but my suspicion is that James Gunn is a much better fit for this sort of thing than Martin Campbell was (though Campbell has his strengths).

That's more than enough to make the connection.

There have been plenty of negative reactions to the GotG trailer right here.

Any viewer whose go to is "It's Marvel's GL" is being unjustly reactionary and that's on them.
For my part, that's assuming a far greater emotional investment in the subject than I possess. It's an unflattering first impression, nothing more.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

The style of humor in the two trailers are very different, for what that's worth. GotG is going with deadpan goofy. With the exception of one moment from Starlord and the ad-lib comment at the end, much of the humor is just the juxtaposition of the music and characters with their serious backstories. Green Lantern had a very sitcom-y style humor to the trailer.
