    I think he'll do a good job. Looks really aren't important when it comes to these kinds of roles since he'll either be covered in make up or he'll be doing motion capture for a CG character.
    I wonder if he is CG if they'll just use the same character design from the Avengers or if they'll change him to make him look more like Josh Brolin?

    I'd be astonished if they don't further develop the design. Just from a technical POV he was only on screen for a second or three, so the character model couldn't have been up to the same standards as something you'd expect to carry most of a movie like say Rocket and Groot.

    True. I never thought Ultron would be from the Brat Pack either, but it's going to happen. Silk purses from sow's ears. AVENGERS 2 will be a TUFF TURF reunion, of all things.

    Looks like another one during NBA Finals. I'm starting to think this movie is going to be a major hit or major disappointment. I think it's getting too much push to fall in between.

    Very cool. The first one that really seems to get a feel of the whole storyline (I've had to do doubletime to learn anything about the Guardians and Star Lord, but I really enjoyed the hint of the version of Star Lord's origin we're going with). It's also the first time I heard Groot speak, so that was cool.

    It is clear that some of the trailer catch phrases are clearly made for the trailer, though. I'm not sure which version of "a thief, a murderer, two thugs, and a maniac" will appear in the movie, but I'm doubtful that both would (the line previously was "these criminals").

    That actually looked decent compared to the previous trailers. I feel some interest now.

    And Avengers Assemble? Is that what the Avengers movies was called overseas?

    Just in the UK, I think, to avoid confusion with the 1960s show "The Avengers". (or the Uma Thurman/Ralph Fiennes movie version from the 90s)

    As much as I've enjoyed the 70's music, which in fairness has it's purpose for Quill, I'm glad to see a more straightforward trailer.

    This reveals a bit about Peter, how the GotG are a last line of defense and not necessarily a first one.

    Good humor but it's not overshadowing so the prior trailers are balanced out with this more serious toned trailer.

    That makes sense. Back in the 60s, I started watching The Avengers because I saw it in the TV book and thought it was "my" Avengers (good thing, too, because it turned into one of my favorite shows).

    Indeed. They seem to have disowned it.

    Not really, they've made mention to it a few times. It's just not highly referenced at this point.

    Avengers, Banner: "Last time I was in NY I kinda destroyed Harlem"

    Avengers, Banner: "I got low, I put a gun in my mouth and the Other guy spent it back out" (reference to a deleted scene actually but it's on the DVD)

    AoS: Reference to Blonsky being in the "Fridge"
