Exclusive: Djimon Hounsou Downplays Comedy in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ Says There is “Quite a Bit of Action”

Djimon Hounsou isn’t playing the first black superhero put on film, but he’s determined to make sure that he isn’t the last. At the 2013 Comic-Con panel for 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' Hounsou recalled the time that his son wished he could be light-skinned so he could play Spider-Man, and the sobering anecdote inspired him to play Korath for writer-director James Gunn – and further, to introduce a character that would give comic fans of color a hero to aspire to, impersonate and admire. With filming almost completed on the adaptation, Hounsou seems pleased with his work, and appreciative of the opportunity to play in the toy box of the Marvel Universe – as much for fun as the chance to create a role model for his son.

At the recent Los Angeles press day for 'Baggage Claim,' in which he plays a successful hotelier who attempts to woo flight attendant Montana (Paula Patton), Hounsou sat down with ScreenCrush to discuss his work in the upcoming comic book movie. In addition to talking about what prompted his recollection about his son, he observes some other hard truths about the moviemaking business, and reveals a few details about the kinds of challenges he tackles in the film.

Marvel surprised us all the other day with the revelation that ‘Captain America’ spinoff one-shot ‘Agent Carter’ could potentially join ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ in her own ongoing TV series, while a number of other potential Marvel series projects have entered the works. We’ve given our picks for what unseen Marvel characters deserve their own TV series, but who from the established cinematic universe would we most want to see in their own live-action TV series spinoff?

Marvel Co-President Louis D’Esposito Talks ‘Agent Carter’ and the Spin-Off Marvel Universe

Louis D'Esposito, Bradley Whitford

Though he might not be as well known as Kevin Feige, Louis D'Esposito (Co-President at Marvel Studios) has been one of Marvel's top producers, having worked on all the in-house Marvel films since 'Iron Man.' He's also become the regular director of the 'Marvel One-Shot' series, which have gotten bigger and better with each new entry in the series.

With the Blu-ray release of 'Iron Man 3' comes the latest 'One Shot' 'Agent Carter,' which is easily the best of the series and stars Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter as a James Bond-esque superspy, though one that isn't taken seriously by her superiors because she's a woman. It's smart and fun, giving Atwell another shot at one of her best roles (a part she's likely to reprise).

D'Esposito came up working as an assistant director for the likes of Paul Verhoven and Elaine May, but with the 'One Shot' films, D'Esposito is not only coming in to his own, but perhaps positioning himself to direct one of Marvel's next superhero movies.

We spoke to him about Marvel spinoffs, the origins of Nick Fury, 'Captain America: Winter Soldier,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and more.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’: Chris Pratt Discusses the Film and a Possible Crossover With ‘The Avengers’


'Guardians of the Galaxy' is  movie that feels like it's built on a foundation of interesting and bizarre creative decisions, but casting Chris Pratt in the lead role of Star Lord feels particularly inspired. Although known mostly for his comedic chops, we have a really good feeling about the 'Parks and Recreation' star heading up a team of science fiction superheroes, especially with director James Gunn at the helm. Pratt recently spoke with IGN about the super-secretive production, sharing details about the film's tone and his role in the cinematic Marvel universe.

Vin Diesel Talks About His Possible Role in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Vin Diesel Groot Guardians of the Galaxy

Ever since it was announced that Vin Diesel was "in talks" to join 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as Groot, it seemed like the casting was a done deal and that it must have been the only reason that Diesel was meeting with Marvel (which he had teased weeks earlier). According to this recent interview, both assumptions are wrong.
