Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t really look like anything that’s come before it in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s a good thing for those of us eager to see Marvel branch out, but a potential WTF for those who take comfort in Marvel’s reliability and consistency.
So a new Guardians of the Galaxy featurette tries to encourage those in the latter camp to join the former. Producer Kevin Feige and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper promise the film will “blow you away with how unique it is,” while still reassuring viewers that it’s part of the same old MCU. Watch it after the jump.

On the calendar, Guardians of the Galaxy is the Marvel Cinematic Universe film that immediately precedes next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. That might lead some to think the new characters in James Gunn‘s sci-fi action film will appear alongside Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and the rest in May. Well, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige long ago crushed those hopes, saying Guardians of the Galaxy was almost totally its own story.
This is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though. It’s all connected. Thanos, who appeared in The Avengers, finally reappears in Guardians and those Infinity Gems that have been carefully placed all across the films, likely do too. Now, the writer and director of Guardians of the Galaxy has just made everything nice and simple. He’s confirmed what we’d all assumed: Guardians of the Galaxy will tie into Avengers 3. Read More »

Here’s the first clip from Guardians of the Galaxy. You’ll see an extended version of the scene in which Peter tQuill, aka Star-Lord, is busted by some sort of interstellar peace officer/bounty hunter (Djimon Hounsou) as he attempts a little Indiana Jones-like maneuver.

In the past seven months, Kevin Feige has tentatively planned out another seven years of Marvel movies.
Last August, the president of Marvel Studios was quoted as saying he had a tentative plan for the Marvel Cinematic Universe through 2021. That’s a lot of movies. Now, a new report says that plan has expanded through 2028. Plus, depending on the potential success of Guardians of the Galaxy this summer, that plan might include spinoffs into solo movies focusing on either Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) or Groot (Vin Diesel). They’ve also discussed spinning the new characters introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron off into their own movies.
Read about these potential Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy spinoffs, plus the new 14-year Marvel plan, below. Read More »
