Earlier this month, we showed you some Guardians of the Galaxy concept art which revealed Star-Lord’s comic book origins, which were abandoned in the final film. Today we bring you some concept art from earlier in the production process which shows extremely different character designs for our main heroes.
For example, Rocket Raccoon in the final film was a little cute raccoon with a grizzled attitude and badass skills, but what 2012 concept art shows a very different picture: a grizzled and battle-worn badass war veteran. But thats not all, the new concept art also shows very different versions of Groot, Gamora, Drax and Star-Lord. Also we get our first look at what Nova would have looked like if he were in the film in proper Nova Corp outfit. Hit the jump to check out the Guardians of the Galaxy concept art now.

In the coming years, Marvel fans are going to look back at 2014 with delight. We got a very exciting sequel in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and an amazing original film in Guardians of the Galaxy. Pound for pound, that might be their best one-two punch yet.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier, just hit digital formats ahead of its Blu-ray release and so the Internet’s video editors have finally got hold of the entire thing. Enter Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers. The site calls these trailers “Honest” for a reason. This time around, the video freely admits the movie is really good, which is a nice twist on the usual approach. But, of course, that doesn’t make for good comedy so the nitpicking begins. It’s actually pretty clever and funny, so check out the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Honest Trailer below. Read More »
When Disney bought Marvel and Lucasfilm, they did it for more than movies. They did it for TV shows. They did it for merchandise and they did it for licensing. Also, they spent those billions to integrate both those properties into their theme parks. That has yet to happen in a major way, but it hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from spinning. The latest possibility says Star Wars won’t take over Disneyland‘s Tomorrowland as originally though. Instead, they might take over Toontown and a large section of the Big Thunder Ranch.
Also, a Marvel themed roller coaster is rumored to be under consideration for Disney’s California Adventure, in a parking lot area, plus Frozen will take over a section of the park this holiday season and The Muppets could get a new movie. Read about all these latest Marvel and Star Wars Disneyland rumors below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
25 years ago, Tim Burton showed people how it was done. His Batman, unlike almost every superhero movie that’s been released since, started with the character already in action. It was not an origin story. Sure it briefly explained how Bruce Wayne became Batman, but he’s Batman the entire movie. That’s radically different from Batman Begins, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Man of Steel and even this month’s Guardians of the Galaxy. On almost every occasion, the first superhero movie of a series is an origin story to let the audience know how and why the characters are who they are.
That may be changing, however. According to one source, Marvel Studios doesn’t want to do origin stories anymore and Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson, won’t be one. Read More »
