After the unprecedented success of The Avengers, Marvel is thinking bigger and maybe even better.
Following Iron Man 3, Thor 2 and Captain America 2, sources are reporting that the studio is releasing a Guardians of the Galaxy movie, even though Marvel hasn't officially confirmed yet.
We've been hearing rumors about this possible adaptation for quite some time now, but people put it together after Disney announced on Tuesday that an untitled Marvel movie's release date was changed from May 16, 2014 to August 1, 2014.
Remember that big, mean-looking purple dude at the end of The Avengers? Everyone who didn't immediately recognize him probably Googled him to discover that he's a super dangerous galactic villain named Thanos.
We assumed he'd be the next guy trying to invade earth, but it turns out that he's the villain in the upcoming Guardians movie. The out-of-this-world comic book movie will include superheroes Adam Warlock, Drax The Destroyer, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and Phyla-Vell/Quasar.
Yeah, there is going to be a walking, talking raccoon shooting shiz up on the big screen soon. As long as he doesn't look like something from Howard The Duck, we're pretty excited to see that happen.
We don't know too much about these heroes other than that they are each the last of their kind, from the 31st century and unite to defend earth against evil — and then make lots of money for Marvel. LOL!
Are U pumped that these will be the next heroes exploding into pop culture?
