For better or worse, Frank Miller helped define superheroes in the ’80s with his grim and often violent stories featuring Marvel’s Daredevil and DC’s Batman. His work on those books had an influence that is felt in comics and film today, 30 years after the publication of some of Miller’s work. The most recent run of Batman films, directed by Christopher Nolan, bore significant Miller influence, not least being the title The Dark Knight. But Miller hasn’t seen those movies. In fact, Frank Miller hates Batman movies, and can hardly bear to watch any film based on characters he has worked on. Read More »
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.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Kevin Smith has cast off ideas of retirement and is instead driving forward with the development and creation of small-budget films based on original ideas that spring out of podcasts and his own fevered brain. The next one is the horror story Tusk, which premieres next month at the Toronto Film Festival. At Comic Con, Smith revealed that Tusk is the first film in what he hopes will be a set of Canada-based stories called “The True North Trilogy.”
The second film in the set will be Yoga Hosers, a story about two high school girls who battle evil.
