For the past month, Disney XD has been teasing its upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy animated series with origin story shorts focused on each of the Guardians. First we saw Star-Lord’s, then Groot’s, Rocket’s, and Drax’s. And now, last but certainly not least we have Gamora’s.
If you saw James Gunn’s movie, you already know her history in broad strokes: She’s the adopted daughter of Thanos, who killed the rest of her race, and she eventually decides to betray him. But the animated Gamora origin story adds more detail to that biography, and even includes a fun cameo by another Guardian. Watch the video after the jump. Read More »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is quickly expanding, and maybe we’re taking for granted that it will all collide and connect at some point. When Marvel announced the two-part two-film event The Avengers: Infinity War, we all assumed that we’d see all of the Marvel heroes in this one epic story. And we might see both the Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers in those movies, but don’t expect to see the two teams crossover on the big screen — at least according to Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye in the films. Lets hear Hawkeye’s thoughts on a potential Avengers Guardians crossover.

Even though X-Men from the year 2000 may have been the first Marvel Comics film that truly launched the comic book movie boom that hasn’t stopped in 15 years (and is showing no signs of slowing down), the very first theatrical movie based on a Marvel comic was Howard the Duck in 1986. Sadly, and hilariously, it was an absolute disaster.
But ever since Marvel Studios revived the character for a credits scene appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, there’s been a resurgence of interest in the wise-cracking, anthropomorphic duck named Howard. And that’s mainly because fans think that Marvel Studios can do the character justice on the big screen now, not unlike Rocket Raccoon.
And now a new trailer remix gives Howard the Duck the Marvel cinematic universe treatment by blending footage from the original movie with Marvel Studios movies, imagining a big screen reboot in today’s world. Watch the Howard the Duck trailer remix now! Read More »

Groot was the breakout favorite from last summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but for a variety of reasons — including the film’s running time, its narrative scope, and the fact that Groot is only capable of saying the words “I am Groot” — we never really got to dig into his backstory. Where did this lovable tree-creature come from? Who taught him how to fight like that? And how did he meet his BFF Rocket?
We’ll have to wait and see if any of those questions are answered in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but in the meantime his animated counterpart is getting a bit more history. Disney XD has unveiled a Groot origin story short ahead of its new cartoon series Guardians of the Galaxy, delving back into his childhood on an entire planet of Groots. Watch the Groot origin story after the jump. Read More »
