Guardians of the Galaxy

(2014)

An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

Can ‘Star Wars’ Find ‘Guardians’ Star Dave Bautista a Role?

Can ‘Star Wars’ Find ‘Guardians’ Star Dave Bautista a Role?

There aren't too many more franchises bigger than the WWE, the Marvel Universe, and James Bond, so it's understandable why the Superstar would want to conquer Star Wars next. Though it is a pretty big goal, it's not beyond the realm of possibility. Star Wars is a universe made up of all types of alien creatures and space heroes. Though with his stocky frame, he might just be too buff to play a Stormtrooper. And a little too short to play a Wookie.

Dave Bautista is 46-years-old, and he grew up as part of the Star Wars generation. Ask anyone his age, and appearing in a Star Wars movie is probably at the top of their bucket list. Lucky for him, he is sitting in a position where this might become a reality. He has the added benefit of being part of the Disney team with his role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. And he will shoot Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 early next year for release in 2017.

‘Ant-Man’ TV Spot Gets Weird with Paul Rudd & Michael Douglas

‘Ant-Man’ TV Spot Gets Weird with Paul Rudd & Michael Douglas

What are we watching here? Marvel and Disney have debuted a very strange TV spot for their new superhero adventure Ant-Man. It features stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas scatting about ants. They slap their chests, beating out a tribal rhythm used to call forth the insects. What does it all mean? Why are they doing this? We really have no idea!

There has been some concern from fans that the latest spat of Ant-Man clips and TV spots have been too spoilerish. One such TV spot even goes as far as to reveal the movie's secret Avengers cameo. Well, it's not a secret anymore, as Anthony Mackie's Falcon, who became a bonafide Avenger in Avengers: Age of Ultron, meets Scott Lang for the first time. We've included it here, in case you haven't seen it yet, or need some extra incentive to get yourself in theaters this weekend.

James Gunn Responds to Oscar Season Superhero Haters

James Gunn Responds to Oscar Season Superhero Haters

This past Saturday afternoon, Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy took a few moments out during his Independent Spirit Awards speech after winning his 'Best First Feature' award to rally against Hollywood's glut of superhero movies. This was followed by Jack Black taking a couple of shots below the belt during his big Oscars opening musical number. And others have been equally vocal about the many masked vigilantes with extraordinary powers overtaking the box office in recent years. One person who won't stand for the backlash is Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, who claims just as much heart goes into making the Marvel movies as any small independent feature. Perhaps even more so.

I didn't really find the Jack Black superhero jokes offensive, did you guys? It was, like, a joke. I'm not sure if you guys noticed, but the writing on the Oscars didn't seem to be all that well thought out.

Ronan Will Not Return in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’

Ronan Will Not Return in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’

Just because Ronan the Accuser appeared to (SPOILER!!) die at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy doesn't mean his soul isn't floating through the cosmos looking for another host body. Just recently, Lee Pace revealed that he'd love to return in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, however unlikely that sounded at the time. Now, in a special Q&A with James Gunn for the DVD and Blu-ray release of this Marvel blockbuster, the director does say that Ronan may return...At some point! But it definitely won't be in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (unless he's planning a sneaky surprise).

James Gunn broke the news during his Facebook session. You can check out the entire commentary: CLICK HERE. People have really responded to Lee Pace and his character, enough so that two people had to ask the same question.
