With Marvel Studios' The Avengers coming to theaters next year, the superhero studio has several other projects in the pipeline which could go next. Doctor Strange seems to be the next project out of the gate, and a new report indicates that Guardians of the Galaxy may come after that.

Guardians of the Galaxy was one of the several projects mentioned in a report from last year, which also included S.H.I.E.L.D., Iron Fist, and Black Panther. A new report reveals that Marvel is in "active development" on Guardians of the Galaxy, although it is not known if any filmmakers are attached to the project yet.
