Remember how we got to see 17 minutes of Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' out in theaters next week? While we could only show you a few snippets of what we saw at the time, a new five-minute clip from the film debuted online that reveals more from that IMAX sneak peek.
Guardians of the Galaxy
There's this movie -- just a space opera in the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- that's coming out next week: 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' Maybe you've heard of it. Late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel is probably counting on that, because he basically let the cast of the film, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, run the show on last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'

Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, is currently making the press rounds in support of the new Marvel cosmic adventure, 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' In the new film, the cinematic version of the Nova Corp. is introduced -- basically an interstellar band of police officers that serve as foils to the Guardians of the Galaxy. In the comics, a man named Richard Rider becomes the Earth-centric superhero Nova, but he's not a part of the new film. (Unless the as-yet-unseen post-credits scenes have anything to do with Rider.) While speaking to Feige on Monday afternoon, we asked about Richard Rider's lack of inclusion in the film ... and we asked if we would know who's playing Doctor Strange before the end of this week's San Diego Comic Con. (The full interview with Feige will publish the week of release.)
The 'Planet Hulk' movie rumors have been going strong since over a year ago, despite almost everyone involved in the Marvel universe - from Joss Whedon to Kevin Feige - categorically denying the existence of such a movie. Well, you can add another denial on the 'Planet Hulk' pile.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' hasn't even hit theaters yet, but we know it's got at least one major connection to 'The Avengers.' Aside from existing in the same cinematic playground, the intergalactic "Mad Titan" known as Thanos will be the future nemesis of The Avengers, in addition to being the evil puppet master of the villains in 'Guardians.' Does this mean Marvel will have both teams of superheroes crossover for one big team-up in a future movie?
If you thought the heroes of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' were an odd bunch, just wait until you get a look at the bad guys! Continuing this week's onslaught of new character posters, new one-sheets for the characters of Ronan the Accuser, Nebula and Korath the Pursuer have arrived, giving us great looks at the trio Big Bads working to defeat the ragtag Guardians in the upcoming film.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' is ready to take the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it and blast off into the farthest reaches of the galaxy, and new footage and posters for this superhero space opera promise it'll be one helluva ride.
