Marvel Studios' live-action PG-rated 3D feature "Guardians of the Galaxy", prepping for a June 2013 start @ Shepperton Studios (UK) for director James Gunn will be based on Marvel Comics 25-issue, 2008 comic book series "Guardians of the Galaxy" (vol. 2), written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning

"...'Guardians' is 95% in space," said Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige. "It’s much more of a standalone film." 

In "Guardians of the Galaxy" issues #1-#10 :

"...back-to-back 'Annihilation' wars have weakened the boundaries of our universe. Dark gods and monsters are seeping through the cracks, reigning horror upon those still reeling from the recent calamities. In the face of terror, who stands to defend a desperate universe? 'Star-Lord' and the modern day 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.

"'Groot' is here, and exactly what or who have the Guardians discovered frozen and adrift in space? 

"When their HQ is sabotaged, a  'Skrull' is suspected among the Guardians? »
