Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I've read some of the earlier incarnation, set in one of Marvel's collection of alternative futures, and it was fun on its own terms. It won't be for everyone, but not to worry.

How did that version of the title card moment look in the UK theatres, anyway?
It looked fine both times I saw it in the cinema, given Coulson asks, what do we do now or somesuch and then the title appeared. I personally think, as do a few people I have discussed such matters with agree, it added, not subtracted from the film.

I did and still "get" why the BBFC or whomever decided to change the title from just "The Avengers" to "Avengers Assemble" because of the Steel/Peel Avengers that is pretty engrained in peoples minds, I doubt anyone would have honestly thought they would be seeing a "reboot" of that, but given how much money was spent and needed to be recouped, it makes sense to change the title of the film a very slight amount.

Anyway, the film is about them assembling and fighting the good fight as they're not a fully fledged team until New York and that's only because Coulson "snuffs it."

It was formally Marvel's The Avengers here, FWIW.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

As an American, I have no problem with the British version saying "Avengers Assemble." I think it's a bit clunkier, but it helps avoid confusion (not confusion with what you're going to see, but confusion if you're discussing it later). Although I was aware of the old TV show, so having to note which one I'm talking about was already on my mind. This is comparable to changing S.H.I.E.L.D. to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to avoid confusion with The Shield. By comparison, Avengers Assemble is way less clunky than Agents of SHIELD (although I've gotten used to that).

The only title changes that bother me are the complete abandonment of the title character in the Captain America movies. I'm OK with The First Avenger (although I wish "Captain America" appeared, just less emphasized). What bothers me is making the sequel "The Return of the First Avenger." The First Avenger made sense in the first movie because it was a set-up for the Avengers movie and an origin movie for SHIELD as well as Captain America. It makes considerably less sense for the sequel.

ETA: No point to this, but I thought I would post: Star Wars trailer done in Guardians of the Galaxy style:

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Wasn't South Korea one of the countries where Captain America: The First Avenger was retitled The First Avenger? I was surprised by that because I had thought Koreans liked the U.S. enough to not be bothered by the name "Captain America".

re: Star Wars/GotG
That was great
(only annoying thing is the "Disney's Star Wars" at the end. Do people really think it's gonna say that when VII is released? They do know that Disney owns Marvel too, and there hasn't been a "Disney's Thor" or "Disney's Captain America" has there?



As for "Return of the First Avenger", wasn't that only in countries that, well, don't really like America that much? And putting "America" in the title was thought to be bad for business

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

The Return of the First Avenger was the title in Germany. The title wasn't widely used. The film had "Captain America" in the title in almost all international territories, with the title being Captain America: The Return of the First Avenger in a few cases.

Which was a pain in the neck, because it was on Pay-Per-View for a while before I realized I should have been looking under M rather than A.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I saw the GOTG style Star Wars trailer over on IO9, and I loved it.
I don't get why they'd change The Winter Soldier's title. I can see them getting rid of the Captain America part, but why did they get rid of The Winter Soldier? Couldn't they have just called it Marvel's The Winter Soldier, or even The First Avenger: The Winter Solider?

And now I'm wanting a proper travel guide to the Xandar system. Would they let me write one?

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Did you guys check out the site that goes along with the video? I thought it was pretty fun. They even have street views.
It amazes me how far they go with some of this viral stuff now.
