Marvel Studios has released four new images from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, two of which are official stills and two of which go behind the scenes.
The most interesting of the bunch is a shot of Chris Pratt's Star-Lord running along the terrain of an alien planet, with the wall behind him just a flat wall of blue. It's not all that different from an old Star Trek set. It just goes to show how much post-production work goes into making movie look as polished as the final screenshots presented here look.
Ever since the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy hit -- heck, ever since the movie was announced -- the public has been clamoring for more Rocket Raccoon and Groot, the alien warriors who just happen to be a tiny furry cartoon animal and a talking, walking tree, respectively. Now, it seems that excitement over the two characters has hit a fever pitch, with an all-new prose novel by Dan Abnett called Rocket Raccoon and Groot Steal The Galaxy!set to hit bookshelves in July.
One more time, that's a prose novel about Rocket Raccoon and Groot, set to capitalize on the presumed success of the upcoming major, big-budget Guardians of the Galaxy feature film. This is the world we live in now.
If you've seen the trailer for the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie, you're likely already familiar with the prominently featured scene in which Chris Pratt's Star-Lord tiptoes up to an ancient-looking artifact with designs on stealing it in a manner reminiscent of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Now, Marvel Studios has released a slightly longer look at that scene in what you might call a clip or what kind of seems like a slightly different trailer cut. Whatever you'd call it, the video awaits your eyes.
This past February at Toy Fair 2014 we were able to get our hands on LEGO Groot, but couldn't snap photos since the first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer hadn't yet made its way online at the time. With the month of March having come and gone with the trailer in its wake, it seems fans can finally feast their eyes on more than just LEGO's bricky version of Star-Lord's ship as part of the "The Milano Spaceship Rescue" set. Hit the jump for a full look at the upcoming "Starblaster Showdown" and "Knowhere Escape Mission" GoTG sets, plus final promo photos of the X-Men: Days of Future Past-flavored "X-Men vs. The Sentinel" set we saw a few months back.
We weren't allowed to shoot them at Toy Fair 2014, but Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum are finally ready to reveal their Guardians of the Galaxy movie Marvel Minimates. From the looks of things, everybody is present and accounted for except John C. Reilly.
We like diversity here at ComicsAlliance. We've said it before, and we'll say it again. We're also big fans of superheroes, and that probably goes without saying.
We especially like diversity with our superheroes. Diversity broadens the genre's reach, encourages respect and understanding of people's differences, and gives minority audiences more chances to see themselves in fiction, and those are all great things. Because of this, we've come up with a new way to look at diversity in superhero comics - particularly team books. We call it the Harvey/Renee Index.
The comic book, animation, illustration, pinup, mashup, fan art and design communities are generating amazing artwork of myriad styles and tastes, all of which ends up on the Internet and filtered into ComicsAlliance’s Best Art Ever (This Week). These images convey senses of mood and character — not to mention artistic skill — but comic books are specifically a medium of sequential narratives, and great sequential art has to be both beautiful (totally subjective!) and clear in its storytelling (not so subjective!). The words and the pictures need to work together to tell the story and create whatever tone, emotion and indeed world the story requires. The contributions of every person on a creative team, from the writer to the artist(s) to the letterers, are necessary to achieving a great page of sequential storytelling.
It is this special nature of comic books that we’re celebrating in the recurring feature: Best Sequential Art Ever (This Week).
After five years of working on Marvel's adaptations of Frank L. Baum's Oz books, Skottie Young is jumping back into the Marvel Universe feet-first with a new series about a character who's primed to become a breakout movie star, Rocket Raccoon.
Young has been working on the series for months now, so he isn't basing his version of the character on the one that will be appearing in theGuardians of the Galaxy movie coming to theaters in August. But Young says the version in his comic, the first issue of which will hit stands July 2, is pretty well in line with the Rocket Raccoon people have seen in the trailer.
