Believe it or not, there was a time when Iron Man was a C-list superhero who no one outside of a small niche particularly cared about.
And then Robert Downey Jr. was cast in 'Iron Man' and the Marvel cinematic universe exploded, instantly becoming one...

It’s not surprising to see a television spot for a critically acclaimed movie claim that it’s the “Best Movie of the Year,” through the use of blurbs either provided by, or lifted from, critics. But, in recent years, with the proliferation of the superhero movie genre, there’s been a trend to be the “Best Superhero Movie.” So, based on these television spots alone, what exactly is the best superhero movie or the best Marvel movie of all time? It appears it’s pretty much all of them.
Long before Vin Diesel was "Vin Diesel, movie star," he was just an actor trying to hustle his way into off-off-off-Broadway roles and trying to fill in the financial cracks with various odd jobs. The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star hit up 'The Tonight Show' last night, where host Jimmy Fallon cajoled him into sharing one of those odd jobs with his audience. Is it odd for other people? Probably. Odd for Vin Diesel? Well, the man is a performer.
While Thanos won't pop up in 'Avengers 2,' according to Marvel's Kevin Feige, we will get to see him in 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' At Comic-Con, the Marvel Studios president and producer told us there will be a shot of him replicating that iconic image of the Mad Titan lounging on his throne, and now the first look image has leaked out.
Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' hits theaters this Friday, and it's packed with familiar faces (and voices), like Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and new favorite Karen Gillan. And while they're superhero superstars now, that wasn't always the case -- it may be hard to believe now, but there was a time when you didn't know their names. Join us as we take a look back at the cast of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' to see what they were up to before they were famous.
This week, Marvel Studios' new film, 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' will open in theaters. One of the aforementioned Guardians is a walking, talking tree named Groot, voiced by Vin Diesel. Earlier today, footage was released of Vin Diesel voicing Groot in a number of languages, including Russian. Earlier today, we got a chance to speak with Russian Groot
As much as ‘Guardians’ is a modern Marvel money-making machine, it’s also a tribute to a genre that died in the mid-‘80s. A genre that includes those very movies that people around my age think of fondly – in other words: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is more a tribute to movies like ‘The Last Starfighter’ than it is to ‘Star Wars.’
In this week's highly anticipated new release, 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' Vin Diesel plays a walking, talking, sentient tree named Groot. As adorable as that sounds (and it's really adorable), the best part about Groot is that his vocabulary consists of just three words: "I am Groot." It's how he expresses everything (and it kind of works), but it also means that Diesel needed to dub his lines into different languages for international release himself, because it's such an essential part of his character.
It's kind of remarkable that Marvel Studios have already green-lit a sequel to 'Guardians of the Galaxy' -- a movie that, itself, doesn't come out for another few days. But this says less about Marvel's confidence that 'Guardians' will make money (and, let's not kid ourselves, it certainly will), but more about how the Guardians fit in with the larger story Marvel is trying to tell with the episodic nature of its films. And this episodic nature might just be what doomed Edgar Wright's version of 'Ant-Man' -- as opposed to it just being "too weird," which Marvel studio head Kevin Feige has denied.
Marvel Studios certainly brought their A-game to Hall H at Comic-Con tonight, and while the panel was mostly focused around their 2015 releases ('Ant-Man' and 'Avengers 2' -- not too shabby), they did have some special surprises in store -- like confirmation of 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' and an official release date.
