Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Baby Driver Soundtrack Collaboration

This summer, we’ve gotten two movies where the soundtrack is not just another element that adds style to the motion picture but is also an integral piece of the narrative that unfolds. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 followed in the footsteps of its predecessor by having a mixtape soundtrack that fueled the story in the Marvel Studios sequel and the entirety of Baby Driver played out to the rhythm and sound of the music playing in the man character’s iPod earbuds. With both soundtracks reaching back into decades passed, how was there no overlap between them?

It turns out there was some careful planning behind the scenes to ensure that neither movie was infringing upon the other’s musical territory. Find out more about the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Baby Driver soundtrack collaboration. Read More »

All the Marvel Big Bads, Ranked By Badness

michael keaton as the vulture in spiderman homecoming

I totally get that you don’t want to read an introduction about how there’s a new (great) Marvel Cinematic Universe villain because of Spider-Man: Homecoming. You’re skipping this to get right to the list so you can get right to the comments section. No sweat. You’ve earned it.

If you’re still reading, there are two things to keep in mind regarding this particularly ranking of Marvel’s bad guys. One, I’m judging them all based on Personality and Plan Points. How magnetic are they? How stupid is their plan for world domination (or whatever else they’re seeking)?

Two, Thanos isn’t on it because he doesn’t count. He’s not a villain; he’s a Postmates customer with the munchies. I’m sure we’re all looking forward to Infinity War when he can legitimately join this list.

Red Hulk movie

James Gunn has proven to be one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most valuable players. He’s become the go-to guy for all things cosmic, and his third Guardians of the Galaxy movie will set up the next ten years of Marvel Studios movies. That’s a lot of power for someone who was directing little-seen films like Slither and Super just a few years ago.

In a recent Facebook Q&A, the writer/director revealed that before he became such a vital part of the MCU, there were a couple of other superhero films he dreamed of making, and one of them was a Hulk/Red Hulk movie. Plus, he also confirmed a connection between the original Guardians movie and the character of Adam Warlock, who was introduced at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Get the details below.

darth vader in guardians of the galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy almost wasn’t the musically-driven ode to the ’80s that we know and love today. Instead, the film’s nod to Peter Quill being the lone human in a wacky space opera would have been a Darth Vader cameo. Or rather, a Darth Vader action figure cameo.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is famously a huge Star Wars nerd and wanted to originally incorporate that into 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy. However, at director James Gunn’s suggestion, that brief appearance of Darth Vader — a moment of corporate synergy Feige thought of before Disney had even acquired Lucasfilm — was replaced by Peter Quill’s Walkman. And we were immediately hooked (on a feeling).
