    I'm really liking the look of the movie so far. I can't wait to get some see some it in more than just set pics.

    This is defiitely my most anticipated movie of Marvel's Phase 2. Not only because I really (really) love the comic, but because it's the only phase 2 film that's not a damned sequel :p

    Since Avengers culled all the stars of he first four phase 1 films into one film. I wonder if Avengers: AOU will stick the GoG in there somewhere?

    They presumably will. The original thought was Thanos would be the Avengers 2 villain, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

    Mohawk? I thought that Yondu had a big fin that went from his back to the top of his head. I don't think that that was hair at all.

    I've always thought of it as a fin, too.

    While I also believe it to be a fin and not a Mohawk (a fauxhawk?), I can totally see it being added in post. If you've never watched The Avengers with the Joss Whedon commentary, you totally should. He points out so many of the CGI touches that you never would have ever even realized and thought of, like damage to Iron Man's facemask or the grass in a field, to big things like Chris Evans being digitally removed from a shot. Just amazing, and a little scary, what they can pull off digitally.

    It's a fin, not a Mohawk. :rommie:

    Hopefully, it will be added digitally-- although the more I see of this movie, the less interested I become generally.

    A fin is usually either a sensory organ or something for steering... In either case the appendage seems perfect for sex.

    As much as I relish strident adherence to the source material, that humongous blue fin just looked stupid and I'm glad they dropped it :eek:

    Zoidberg has fins.

    But they only come out when he's aroused.

    If he's not wearing underwear, which he isn't, there has to house rules, ship rules, about where he's allowed to sit, and/or even if he's allowed to sit at all until he puts some boxers on.

    And if he does sit, does he need a special chair so that he does not bend and cramp his fin.

    I'm sure he has on the equivalent of swimsuit bottoms.

    I'm talking about the picture supplied.

    Maybe a blue flesh toned g-string... But there is nothing evident of distinctive viewable on his naked hips that could be part of some sort of underwear?

    Of course his balls could have been moved when his people were redesigned, and he isn't brushing his spuds up against everything in the ship... Which is possible... But they moved his pooper too?
