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, »

Yondu is an above average physical specimen of his race, with an ability to whistle with a range of four octaves, aiding his archery prowess, as well as being an excellent hand-to-hand combatant.

Three New Images from Guardians Of The Galaxy

11 April 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A few pictures from Guardians of the Galaxy showed up in Entertainment Weekly, and while they aren’t as exciting as the trailers and clips we’ve seen, they are new. And they give us a little more info about the movie. The first photo shows the whole gang hanging out in jail, which isn’t a surprise because we’ve already seen their futuristic space mugshots, but who would have thought they wear yellow in space jail? Also, why is Star-Lord holding a prosthetic leg? I’m guessing that’s the end of their space prison riot. The third is just a picture of Chris Pratt in his costume, running toward a camera. So if you see the movie in 3D, it’ll be like he’s running right at you. 

The second image is a little more interesting. It shows Pratt and Zoe Saldana as Star-Lord and Gamora, »

Three New Stills from Guardians of the Galaxy; James Gunn Teases Avengers Connection

11 April 2014 1:29 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Three new stills from James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy have been released, and one of them features a fantastic new shot of the team assembled in their prison jumpsuits!

The other two (which have also been scanned from the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly) offer up a look at Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana with the mysterious device they’re attempting to acquire before Thanos does, along with a very cool behind the scenes shot of Star-Lord heading into action.

In an interview with the magazine, director James Gunn confirmed that the villainous Thanos will be a motion-capture creation, and the “head of the snake” in the Marvel Studios space opera.

Most interesting however is the fact that Gunn went on to reveal that Guardians of the Galaxy is “definitely connected to Avengers 3″, pretty much confirming speculation that that movie will be the culmination of everything that’s »
