Guardians of the Galaxy (not to be confused with Rise of the Guardians or Legend of The Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole) is Marvel Studios next big franchise in the waiting, though we know little more about it than the comic book backstory. Heck, we don't even know for sure if its live action or a fully CGI animated adventure, as Marvel has neither confirmed or denied that fact coming out of Comic-Con 2012. Nor have we heard anything about casting.
This sci-fi adventure basically sounds like Marvel's answer to DC Comics' Green Lantern, and a new, very short synopsis only drives that point home. Down to the fact that our protagonist here is a cocky U.S. Pilot on par with Ryan Reynolds's Hal Jordan.
Here is the basic logline of the film.
"About a U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants."
This, of course, ties into Thanos, as seen at the end of Marvel's The Avengers, and the object everyone is hunting for is rumored to be The Infinity Gauntlet, containing six infinity gems, each of which give the wearer of this glove supremacy over all six quadrants of the multiverse.
Hopefully Guardians of the Galaxy will fare better than Green Lantern at the box office. It does have Rocket Raccoon going for it, which could be very cool, or Marvel's biggest mistakes since Howard the Duck (who is from one of the Marvel multiverses...So maybe we'll get a cameo? Nah...)
