Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Very cool. The first one that really seems to get a feel of the whole storyline (I've had to do doubletime to learn anything about the Guardians and Star Lord, but I really enjoyed the hint of the version of Star Lord's origin we're going with). It's also the first time I heard Groot speak, so that was cool.

It is clear that some of the trailer catch phrases are clearly made for the trailer, though. I'm not sure which version of "a thief, a murderer, two thugs, and a maniac" will appear in the movie, but I'm doubtful that both would (the line previously was "these criminals").

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

That actually looked decent compared to the previous trailers. I feel some interest now.

And Avengers Assemble? Is that what the Avengers movies was called overseas?

Just in the UK, I think, to avoid confusion with the 1960s show "The Avengers". (or the Uma Thurman/Ralph Fiennes movie version from the 90s)

As much as I've enjoyed the 70's music, which in fairness has it's purpose for Quill, I'm glad to see a more straightforward trailer.

This reveals a bit about Peter, how the GotG are a last line of defense and not necessarily a first one.

Good humor but it's not overshadowing so the prior trailers are balanced out with this more serious toned trailer.

That makes sense. Back in the 60s, I started watching The Avengers because I saw it in the TV book and thought it was "my" Avengers (good thing, too, because it turned into one of my favorite shows).

Indeed. They seem to have disowned it.

Not really, they've made mention to it a few times. It's just not highly referenced at this point.

Avengers, Banner: "Last time I was in NY I kinda destroyed Harlem"

Avengers, Banner: "I got low, I put a gun in my mouth and the Other guy spent it back out" (reference to a deleted scene actually but it's on the DVD)

AoS: Reference to Blonsky being in the "Fridge"

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

You know the more I see of this, the more I feel like this is essentially Farscape the movie. The humour, the irreverent tone, the pop culture references, the ship of misfits and the lone human as the fish-out-of-water...I mean if you turn your head and squint Quill kinda-sorta looks like Crichton...

As for the trailer: personally though, I prefer the other trailers. The late 60's/early 70's pop music gave it some character. This just feels like every overwrought, dramatic, summer tent-pole trailer you've ever seen. I mean the only thing it was missing was Lux Aeterna. Blech!

Oh and the smug egotist in me is pleased that I called it correctly that he'd left Earth as a child. Yeah, because that was such an insightful leap of logic!

Incidentally, does anyone think there may be a link between Quill and Skye? Maybe the same ship that (for whatever reason) picked him up also dropped of her "parents"? Maybe they switched him for her for some bizarre reason? Or maybe the "guest" was killed in whatever incident ended with Quill being taken? Could be a coincidence, but it seems like the timing seems just about right for there to be some kind of connection.

I kind of doubt that Quill hails from the Hunan Province.

They haven't disowned it continuity-wise, but they've certainly disowned it promotion-wise. It's the Jimmy Carter of MCU films.

I'm suprised that no one mentioned

Here's what the Netflix UK cover (from the dvd/blu ray discs) looks like.

That's just were SHIELD found Skye. Doesn't mean her parents (assuming they're aliens of course) were dropped off in China. Plus not like they'd have to walk to make their way half way around the globe. Just using human transportation that could easily do that in under 24 hours.

Or, if they were hunting baby Skye, maybe whoever took her fled half way around the globe before finally being cornered?
