Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I'd be excited, but it will probably be made by the same people (and be in the same universe as) Ultimate Spider-Man and avengers Assemble, which suck. Marvel has been as bad at animated stuff as it is good with live action stuff for awhile. There can obviously be good Marvel comics basedanimation, but Ultimate Spider-Man was bad from the beginning, and it all went downhill from there. It makes me miss Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes even more

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

It's all because of jeph loeb and his marvel man of action writing team.

We HAD good Marvel cartoons

-Spectacular Spider-man
-Avengers: EMH

but they wanted something that was dumbed down.

It's a shame because, in the 1990s, their stuff was among the best. A GotG show of the quality of the 90s shows would have been an ideal introduction to the universe as a whole.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I do like that it's an old school depiction of Starlord. It gives the idea that it'll draw from other versions of GotG and won't just be aping the movie. Although it's fair to say, regardless of quality, I'm only checking it out after it appears on Netflix (if it does).

With X-men TAS style story arcs and theme song by a rockband?(KISS, Aerosmith)?

a really shame.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Tor.com has a review up. Their critic like it.
It also has a score of 75 on Metacritic, with 12 positive reviews, 2 mixed reviews, and no negative ones.
Things are definitely looking good.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I see my exact feelings about the announcement of the animated series are being echoed by other posters here. This would be great news if it wasn't handled by the crew that's doing the current crop of animated shows. Especially because, in my opinion, with each show added, the quality goes down. Ultimate Spider-Man was passable, Avengers is slightly passable, while Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. is horrible.

That being said, the episode of Ultimate Spider-Man that introduced the Guardians was one of my favorites (As a New Yorker who went to school in Boston, "Spidah-Man" is my favorite USM episode).

However, the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes episode with the Guardians ("Michael Korvac") was great, partly because Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning wrote it. The only thing the USM episode had over this was the casting of the late Michael Clarke Duncan as Groot.

In preparation for Guardians, I finally sat down to watch Super last night. Despite hearing good things about it, it became one of those movies you add to your Instant Queue and keep skipping over as you mutter to yourself, "I want to watch a movie, but not any of these."

Not that I had any doubts about Guardians, but after seeing Super, and how much James Gunn showed he understands the genre, I am even more excited to see it!

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I think Ultimate Spider-Man, Agents of SMASH, and Avengers Assemble are good enough for what they are.

I wasn't ever one who wept for how wonderful SSM or EMH was so maybe that's why I feel that way.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

At this point, animated superhero cartoons have proven they can be much more than what Marvel is giving us with USM, AA and HAoS. Everything from DC stuff like Batman: TAS and Justice League to EMH and Wolverine and the X-Men were examples of superheroes done right, and in a way everyone can enjoy. The current Marvel cartoons are dumbed down even for their intended audience, and the writing is just awful. The shows will be forgotten soon after they're eventually cancelled, just like the horrible Avengers cartoon with the armored suits for everyone and the MTV CG Spider-Man show. There was a good run of marvel cartoons for awhile, but Marvel taking more control just killed their whole animation line. Like I said before, they're as bad at animation as they are good at live action.
