Guardians of the Galaxy coming to the big screen.
2014 Marvel Movies go cosmic with a direct tie-in to The Avengers with Guardians of the Galaxy. There has been a lot of talk and wonder ever since Marvel opened up the cosmic gateways introducing Thanos in The Avengers. How will the mostly earth bound team deal with such a cosmic threat, especially if he gets his hands on the Infinity Gauntlet which appeared in Thor. The answer has come in yesterday’s Guardians announcement.
Back in April, Marvel producer Kevin Feige did an interview with Crave online about the future of Marvel movies and the urge to make a Guardians movie. For those wondering, he stated the movie would feature the new lineup made popular by writing team DnA (Dan Abnett, and Andy Lanning). Going from the main roster, and recent episodes of Avengers: Earths Mightiest Heroes, the core team will comprise of Star Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and the most important, Adam Warlock. Subsequent characters that may be on the roster include Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Phyla-Vell (Quasar) Mantis, Major Victory, and Bug.
To do a proper Thanos or Infinity Gauntlet, Adam Warlock is a very important piece of the puzzle. He has been the key to thwarting almost every play at the Gauntlet, and was once its master. This is a bold move for Marvel, and one that I hope turns out as good as their other movies. They cracked open the door with Thor, and The Avengers into the cosmic Marvel universe. With Thor 2 promising to open that door wider, the Guardians could break it down completely.
