Good evening, all! I’m back again with a new movie preview from our favorite superhero movie studio. Marvel Studios, as the whole world knows, has had some of the highest grossing movies in recent years. Now that Phase Two has began for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and reports of Phase Three has started to surface for the role of Ant-Man, Marvel is starting to delve into their lesser known heroes.
One of those heroes will be an intergalactic band of misfits that will expand the universe for Marvel’s fans.
Ladies and Gentleman, I introduce you to the Guardians of the Galaxy!!
This superhero film takes place in the deep reaches of space where an American pilot named Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) finds himself as the primary target in a manhunt after stealing an orb from the villainous Ronan (Lee Pace). In order to evade him, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a group of intergalactic misfits that include Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Drax the Destroyer (wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista), and Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel). When Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must rally his team for a last stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
There has been news that we might see the big bad boss, Thanos, who was last seen during the post-credits scene of The Avengers. One can only hope that we will see the Mad God again during this film and how this bunch of misfits will blend into the world established by Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and The Incredible Hulk. This will be a huge risk for Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios because little is known about these heroes but considering the risk and success of Iron Man, this might be worth the chance.
Guardians of the Galaxy will be in theaters on August 1st.
