Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy movie probably seems like a pretty weird concept to a lot of folks unfamiliar with the comics source material, so Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is here to offer a primer.
Speaking with Empire magazine, Feige said the Guardians are "an unlikely band" brought together by "pure circumstance." He went on to describe each character. You can catch all his descriptions after the jump.
As neat as it was to see more Asgardian artifacts from Thor: The Dark World and Cap's new red-less costume and shield from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the real hotness for many was the plethora of Guardians of the Galaxy props displayed at the Marvel booth during Comic-Con. The film's concept art promo image featuring Dave Bautista as Drax (the Destroyer), Zoe Saldana as Gamora and Chris Pratt as Star-Lord mostly focuses on character likeness, but the props -- which include SL's mask and guns, Drax's daggers and... somebody's Sony Walkman? -- definitely help complete the looks of a few characters. And did we mention they were being guarded by full-on Nova Corps troopers? See what you make of the GotG goodness after the jump.
Guardians of the Galaxy #1 hits stores today, a new series by Brian Michael Bendis and Steve McNiven that hopes to boost the profile of Marvel's space-faring super-team ahead of next summer's movie release, so that when your non-comics friends ask you, "Who are these Guardians of the Galaxy?", you don't answer, "the who-dians of the what-now?"
If you were wondering just how Marvel could up the stakes for their movies after introducing Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Marvel's The Avengers, then Kevin Feige has four simple words in response: Guardians of The Galaxy.
