I don't think Vance will be in the film because he's too much like Cap, I think Starlord is a better fit for the film.
The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Movie Plot Revealed
Technically the Green Lantern Core was introduced in 1959. The Guardians of the Galaxy didn't show up until ten years later in 1969. With the way the Green Lantern movie bombed why does Marvel want to do a Guardians of the Galaxy movie? Movies are made in order to make money. Comic book movies are often green-lit because they have an already built-in fan base. While a lot of rather hard-core comic book readers are aware of Guardians of the Galaxy, it doesn't seem like newbies or occasional readers know who they are. Seems to me investors in GotG are taking quite a risk on this one.
They're using the most recent line-up, so of course it's going to be Star Lord. My question is, none of them are super-powered, so how are they going to take on Thanos? In the comics they had Adam Warlock, so hopefully he'll make an appearance.
About a U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants.
This sounds exactly like the plot for Farscape if anyone remembers that TV show from a few years back.
Major Victory was in both the original 691 Guardians and the current 616 Guardians.
I am sure they are referring to Starlord as the pilot. He was a NASA astronaut and after becoming Starlord had the sentient space ship.... well, Ship.
I'm ecstatic! I am the only person I know who loves them. hahah. Seriously I was sad when the series ended, and I can't wait to see the movie. I think Starlord should be there! And I'd love to see them bring back Phyla-Vell & Moon Dragon!
@TheMess1428: "groot" actually means "big" or "large" in dutch, don't know if the creator (i guess Larry Lieber) of Groot took it out of a dutch dictonary but it seems fitting.
I'm all for this movie if it means Marvel starts up a new GoG series again which i'm sure they will. Hmm maybe even Ultimate Gaurdians of the Galaxy, who knows?
I hope its not a comedy try to please everyone movie like the ones disney/marvel has been doing with slick one liners..
The Guardians latest comic series was a more serious comic with a pg-13,R rated feel i know that they will not put a
R rated film out but at least give it that gritty blade runner feel and dont make the Raccoon some nice kid friendly version give me Rocket the kick ass beer drinking Raccoon.....
I can dream right..
This could be a risky move. It will have the loyal comic book fan-base, but here's to hoping it flies with the general movie viewing public. I feel like the movie all hinges on Rocket Raccoon. We'll see what happens, but I'll give Marvel Studios my thumbs up and faith. Here's hoping it isn't misplaced.
I don't think this movie is as big of a risk as a lot of people are pointing it out to be. I bet the end credit scenes in either IM3, Thor, or Cap will have something to do with it to build up anticipation like they did for the other movies during phase 1. Also, it will be marketed as a lead in to Avengers 2 most likely so the crowds will show up simply for that fact.
