Guardians of the Galaxy are Marvel’s most precarious and ambitious proposition yet, which is what makes it a highly anticipated movie.
The Guardians are comprised of an oddball bunch of misfits, boasting a genetically altered, trash talking raccoon and a giant, mobile tree-like humanoid among their ranks. Unlike household names like Iron Man, who have been at the forefront of comic book folk lore, they are unknown to the general populace.
Furthermore, Guardians also contains a diverse and fascinating ensemble: Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel will provide voice talent and motion capture for the two aforementioned characters, respectively.
Guardians represents Marvel’s attempt at creating a Star Wars type feature set entirely in space. Like all Marvel movies, this will also contain connective tissue, tying it in with their other franchises.
Generally regarded as the avengers in space, one can hope that their on-screen debut is as much fun as the Avengers’.
