Guardians of the Galaxy trailer
A couple of nights ago, the new trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie was premiered on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night program (thus the little badge in the top corner here). Comic book fanboys waited with baited breath and appear to have gotten some of what they were looking for.
**possible spoilers below**
I was among many previous comic book enthusiasts who reacted with puzzlement when the project was announced. Rocket Raccoon? In a movie? Really?
But the above trailer sure makes the resulting film look entertaining and promises to integrate the group fully into the existing Marvel universe. There’s The Collector. And Gamora is Thanos’ daughter. He made everybody squeal when he showed up at the end of the first Avengers movie.
I have very strong memories of reading this specific Thanos story during school downtime in my 4th grade math classroom. The conclusion of the story there left me a little stunned and it stuck in my mind. The fact that Marvel appears to be building toward a Thanos-centered story is pretty exciting.
Many people are suggesting that at least two of the six gems used to complete the Infinity Gauntlet have already made very obvious appearances in Marvel films. What is the Tesseract, anyway? Another object of power showed up in the second Thor movie. The object “Star Lord” is stealing Indiana Jones style at the beginning of the trailer could easily be another.
As someone with limited knowledge of the central characters of the movie being advertised, I am intrigued.
Also…John C. Reilly.
