    Merle as Yondu? :cardie: Weird choice. I never thought of Yondu as that old, for one thing.

    If this means all the original Guardians will be present, my interest level has increased.

    They seem silly. No comparison to the Avengers. Not really interested in this movie.

    I actually just watched that Avengers: EMH a couple weeks ago, and I was surprised they went with such a different team than what we are getting in the movie.

    Maybe the original Guardians are all old now (sort of a passing the torch-type thing). Of course, they don't need all of them. Since I have genuinely no knowledge of this comic, is Yondu particularly significant?

    You mean significant in being the one who should pass the torch? Not really. Vance Astro was the leader. Everybody was really of equal significance.

    Wow. I can't say that I ever realized that Groot pre-dated the Fantastic Four. Check out the cover to Groot's first appearance in 1960's Tales to Astonish 13, drawn by none other than Jack Kirby himself!

    Ha! Even though he seems to have had an expanded vocabulary back in the day, I notice that he still gets his catchphrase in! :lol:

    I'm shocked there's a character on the movie team that hasn't been shown in the recent decade of comics.

    The guy from Parks&Rec giving RDJ a run for this money....that's some bold talk right there.

    I'd call it ridiculous talk.

    Actress Olivia Lovibond has been cast in an unnamed role but is said to play "an aide to a near-immortal being called The Collector".

    Let's connect some dots here. In the comics, The Collector was briefly assisted by his daughter Corrina. Corrina was then a crucial player in the epic battle between the original Guardians and the Avengers against... Korvac. Possible?

    ^^^^
    Seems like logical dots to me. The Korvac Saga takes place after Thanos is defeated by the Avengers so could Korvac Saga be a theme just for a hopeful GotG trilogy?

    Lee Pace, who auditioned for Starlord, is now apparently in talks to play the movie's villain.

    Interesting. According to Cosmic Book News, the original source of the Olivia Lovibond news has removed the part of the article that refered to her supposed role as the Collector's assistant. Inaccurate info, or info released to soon?

    I read somewhere else that The Controller was involved. If I can find it again, I'll edit this post.
    Mix-Up then perhaps?
