Guardians of the Galaxy Movie to be Announced at SDCC

Quote:
The news -- coming just days after it was learned Marvel had registered 11 new trademarks for Guardians of the Galaxy -- is via Latino-Review, who also claim that Thanos will be in it and the events of the movie will lead up to The Avengers 2. The site's source calls the script for Guardians of the Galaxy "incredible," and that the film will most likely borrow from "The Thanos Imperative" storyline.
The site adds fans should "(expect) Nova. There’s got to be a reason that Nova keeps showing up in stuff like Disney’s Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvel’s AvX. He’s not a Guardian per se, but he’s the most recognizable Marvel space character to the all-important 'we’re young and buy toys' demographic."

The Guardians of the Galaxy first appeared in their own title in 1969, with their most recent incarnation starting in 2008. Their current roster includes Star-Lord, Adam Warlock, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Phyla-Vell, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and Mantis. They recently appeared in an episode of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

It should be noted, however, that Latino-Review also recently reported that Black Panther was Marvel's next standalone movie after Captain America 2, which has already been officially announced for a 2014 release. Whatever the case may be, we'll hopefully know come Comic-Con just what Marvel has in store for 2014. The studio announced yesterday that they'll be there to hype Iron Man 3 at Hall H on Saturday, July 14 from 6:00– 7:00pm.

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter confirms the above report, also citing the strength of Nicole Perlman's GOTG script as a big reason why it's moving forward ahead of other Marvel movies in development: "She also has written two drafts of Guardians that are highly regarded. Adding to the heat surrounding Guardians is the fact that Marvel is currently on the hunt for a director. Those in the know say the project is in line with Avengers in tone in the sense there is plenty of comedic elements on display."

I fucking LOVE the current Guardians of the Galaxy!

If they play this like a swashbuckling ordeal like in the comics then this could be amazing!

If they try to play it straight to tie it in to everything it'll be shit.

This shits gonna be straight GOTG.. I wish we could get some Quasar in there...

Regardless, this gives me hope that this direction could pave the way for a Nova flick.. That would make my fanboy heart rejoice.

Scott Snyder's Batman is so good, i can't wait for the next arc. Court of Owls was really nice, never seen Bruce/Batman like that (issue 6 or 7).

My currently reading ongoings:

Amazing Spider-Man
Ultimate Spider-Man (morales)
Uncanny X-Force
Batman (snyder)
Justice League (mainly for Shazam stuff)

Also reading Spider-Men, haven't read #3 yet.

For those of you who are both comic book folk AND video game folk DC Universe is now free to play on PSN.

And it's a solid game. Nothing to write home about but nothing to complain about either. If you're a big fan of RPG you will get frustrated with the power trees because they aren't very good, but really the combat is fun, the severs generally do a nice job (until late at night), and you get 3 hero lines and 3 villain lines for free plus something like 5 different power classes so... a lot of game for no money, and then you have the option of purchasing the packs to get different arches and powers. I have seen no sign of needing to pay to play the ones for free though. No level cap or special item that you HAVE to buy. Not yet at least

It does take forever to open the first time, but if you aren't gonna be playing anything that day just let it run and you'll have it sooner than you think.
