If Arrow bore an unabashed influence from Batman Begins, and early Flash borrowed a bit from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow isn’t even trying to conceal its Guardians of the Galaxy vibe. Get weird in the ‘70s, as the team brawls to some vintage tunes in the latest Legends trailer of our January premiere.

Chris Pratt is at it again. The actor is not only known for his roles in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, but for often using his fame for a good cause by visiting children’s hospitals. Earlier this year, Pratt donned his Star-Lord costume to visit some special friends, and this time he’s back with a very adorable little friend: Baby Groot.
Breaking news: Kurt Russell is a busy guy who doesn’t have time to keep up with all these Marvel movies and superhero what’s-its. If you were Kurt Russell, aka Snake Plissken, aka Captain Ron, aka R.J. MacReady, aka Stuntman Mike, aka a Stone Cold Badass, would you make watching all the latest movies a priority? No, which is why it should not come as a shock that Russell has yet to watch Guardians of the Galaxy — even though he’s in talks for a very important role in its sequel.
After the success of the Guardians of the Galaxy film, Marvel's gone all in on its spacefaring adventurers. Where once the group was lucky to have one book being published, you can now find various titles starring the members of the Guardians of the Galaxy in print, including multiple team books and solo books. It's quite a time to be a fan of Star-Lord, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Gamorra and Drax.
Even with that in mind, it was a bit of a surprise to learn that the final box of 2015 for the Marvel Collector Corps would focus on the intergalactic squad of misfits. Funko's usually found a way to tie its boxes to major comic events or film releases, but both the previous box (Villains) and this latest one have spun out from their own little worlds, independent of Marvels grand publishing and cinematic plans.
It might be for the best that this scene never made it into the final cut of Guardians of the Galaxy, since it might have inspired a terrible mash-up t-shirt with a drunk Drax in Joker makeup asking, “You wanna know how I got these scars?” Still, if you were curious about Drax’s tattoos in Guardians, this deleted scene has your answer.
The holiday season is upon us, and with that comes gifts! It's always lovely to receive something special from someone you love, but there's also a particular pleasure that comes in giving a really well chosen gift and knowing that it's truly appreciated. Sometimes it really is better to give than to receive! So in that spirit, ComicsAlliance is here to inspire you with some great ideas for gifts to buy for your friends and family. Each gift guide is taiored to a particular personality type or special interests, starting with gifts for the Marvel movie fan in your life!
If you're looking for a holiday gift for the Marvel-loving nerd in your life (or a gift for yourself; nothing wrong with that), the studio is preparing to release their huge Phase Two Blu-ray box set on December 8 covering everything from Iron Man 3 to Ant-Man with one seriously impressive collector's item. In addition to the outer packaging and the collection of films within, Marvel has also created custom artwork for each disc sleeve and we've got your first peek at the designs.
James Gunn is — unsurprisingly — playing things pretty close to the vest with Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and while he’s addressed several fan questions via social media, he’s only mostly told us who and what won’t be in the sequel. But now we know someone new who most definitely is joining Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and the rest of the Guardians in their next adventure, and she’s not a name you’re likely to recognize.
The gods of Marvel are not like our friendly, crinkly-eyed Judeo-Christian gods. They are the furious, tempestuous gods of old, and they demand a proper tribute from the fleshy weaklings on Earth. The Spartan Marching Band of Michigan State University saw fit to give glory to their chosen deities through the only method they know, combining humanity's three highest art forms: music, flag-twirling, and arranging standing human bodies in intricate patterns.
That Drax fella has a thing for retired wrestlers; he was played by one, Dave Bautista, in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, and is being written by another, C.M. Punk, in his new self-titled series.
Never let it be said that Marvel doesn't give new talents a shot; Punk is relatively inexperienced in the comics writing game, even more so than Bautista at the acting game. Fortunately he's tag-teaming with co-writer and Sixth Gun creator Cullen Bunn, and the two of them can count on the expressive and dynamic pencil work of former Captain Marvel artist Scott Hepburn, who will help keep the blood flowing as Drax the Destroyer carves his way through his enemies. Check out an unlettered preview.
