Guardians Of The Galaxy: 10 Potential Roles For Nathan Fillion

17 April 2014 3:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Television

James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy assembled an impressive cast that intrigued fans and movie-goers. However, a select group of fans of the Whedonverse and James Gunn were hoping to see a particular name counted among the GotG cast; that name is of course Nathan Fillion. Fillion has his fill of geek-cred and a long connection with both James Gunn and Joss Whedon, two big names from the rest of Marvel’s Phase Two. Unfortunately, Fillion apparently didn’t get the call to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he recently revealed a very interesting tidbit at this year’s St. Louis Comic-Con. When asked about the film Fillion stated that fans should maybe watch the credits, and Gunn fanned the speculation flames by saying someone had been letting cats out of bags.

Assuming that this isn’t a fake out by Fillion and Gunn, and we »

Karen Gillan's hair donated to Star Wars 7

17 April 2014 2:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Karen Gillan's shaved hair has been donated to Star Wars Episode VII.

The Doctor Who actress has revealed that her red hair could feature in Jj Abrams's upcoming sequel.

She revealed her shaved head at Comic-Con International last year for her role as Nebula in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy.

When asked by Collider if she was upset when her head was shaved, she said: "No, I was laughing hysterically.

"It really hit me when I woke up the next morning. That's when I was like, 'Oh my God, where's my hair?!' But also, everyone kept me in good spirit. Everyone was laughing and telling jokes. Marvel are the best company to work for, they really are. They treat you really well.

"They made my hair into the most incredible well-made wig and they gave it to the Star Wars people. It's just so »

Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper on the unique nature of 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

16 April 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Are you confused by Marvel's upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy"? A (very) brief new featurette wants to reassure casual fans that -- although there's more comedy and space-set action this time around -- "Galaxy" is still part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And famous people like Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper are in it (at least their voices are).  Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige tells us that while "Galaxy" is part of that universe, it "takes it to the next level," mixing more overtly sci-fi elements with superhero lore. Star Zoe Saldana adds, "it's not a typical superhero movie," meaning no one will mistake it for "The Avengers," although the two franchises are connected via the intergalactic villain Thanos ?as well as that mid-credits scene in "Thor: The Dark World." Instead of do-gooders like Iron Man, Captain America and Thor, the Guardians are a group of reluctant heroes made up of thieves, »

First Guardians Of The Galaxy TV Spot Takes Us Behind the Scenes

16 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Last night the first Guardians of the Galaxy TV spot hit the air during Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (You gotta love that Disney synergy machine.) It features footage from the film and some behind the scenes action, as well as Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige explaining where it fits in the Marvel Universe and the main cast — Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel — talking about what makes it different. My favorite part is about 40 seconds in, when director James Gunn does a really big head nod at Diesel. I could watch that all day.

Guardians of the Galaxy makes it way into theaters on August 1. Here's the synopsis:

Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” finds space adventurer Peter Quill the object of a bounty hunt after stealing an orb coveted by a treacherous villain, but when Quill discovers the power it holds, he must »

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Featurette: Thieves and Bounty Hunters Become Heroes

16 April 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Marvel Studios’ latest film release, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and the ongoing first season of the studio’s ABC TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. deal with the peace-keeping deeds of ordinary government operatives (as well as the super serum-enhanced variety of soldiers) on planet Earth, but later this year Marvel will take a trip to the stars in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

The first trailer for Guardians sells Gunn’s comic book adaptation as being a self-aware (and loopier) Star Wars movie, complete with an eclectic roster of (anti-)heroes composed of archetypes that would feel at home in a Dungeons & Dragons tabletop RPG campaign. A newly-released sneak peek for the film adapts something of a less jokey tone with its pitch. (Well, it’s as serious as a preview that features Rocket Raccoon can get, anyway.)

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Director James Gunn Sticks Up for Hollywood Remakes

15 April 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn is all about the kinds of films that others dread — remakes. After posting support on Facebook for writers Mark and Brian Gunn (“Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”) drafting a screenplay for Universal's remake of 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme action movie “Timecop,” the filmmaker provided a counter argument for those cinephiles adamantly against reviving an old idea for a new audience.

Chris Pratt talks Guardians of the Galaxy

15 April 2014 1:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the MTV Movie Awards, MTV News caught up with man of the moment Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie), who is set to make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this August as Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, the leader of the ragtag group of misfits turned superheroes, the Guardians of the Galaxy. Pratt offered an update on the current status of the movie, as well as a promotional campaign that so far has been fairly reserved (of course, expect all that to change by the summer).

“They’re cutting it together and loving everything that they see. They’re being very careful about what they release and very smart about getting people excited without giving away what the movie’s about and not giving away the best jokes or story. I think people are very fired up to see it, and don’t know what to expect. »
