    It's "I saw Biggs on Tatooine in the theater" all over again!

    I distinctly remember Drax looking twice as well.

    I don't think I've ever thought about the fact that Drax is cleaning a knife before.

    Finally saw this for the first time on pay-per-view tonight.

    Just a terrific, fun film. Fantastic!

    It's like Firefly/Serenity light. And I mean that as a compliment.

    And just for the record, in the version I just watched (finished 5 minutes ago), he turned once.

    Solid "A".

    Can't wait for the sequel.

    My question is, will they invent a new backstory to Quills father or somehow work in the 'actual' one. From what I recall in the comics his father does not even know he exists and didn't try to kidnap him off Earth.

    There is a line in the film about him meant to have been delivered to his father, but they didn't, implying his father is actively looking for him.

    They stated they're changing who the father is too, fwiw. I hope J'son of Spartax does appear regardless, though.

    James Gunn has nixed a crossover with the Avengers, but I don't think it's his call to make. This from Comingsoon's site.

    It's not his call, but he might be privy to additional information. He could be trying to temper enthusiasm.

    I suspect the picture will be clearer after The Age Of Ultron comes out.

    There is no way the Guardians are not in Avengers 3/4. I thought this had already been confirmed?

    Also worth pointing out -- Marvel is notorious for its adherence to utter secrecy surrounding its projects. This could all well be disinformation from Gunn to throw people off.

    Yeah, his quote is about how Avengers 2 affects Guardians 2, not that they will never ever cross over.

    They will be in Avengers 3/4. It's the story this has all been leading to.

    Yeah, the part about "Earth is the Avengers' province" - when the Infinity Gauntlet is involved the stakes are bigger.

    Well I certainly want to see the Guardians in the Infinity War two parter, but I don't think that's been confirmed yet.

    I could have sworn they said it in that big press conference when they unveiled the next decade of Marvel Movies.

    I also recall Drax looking over his shoulder twice during the dancing baby Groot sequence within the credits.
