'The Walking Dead' star Michael Rooker was openly lobbying to voice Rocket Raccoon in Marvel's upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movie. The bad news? He didn't get the part. The good news? He got another part. Rooker has joined the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' cast as Yondu Udonta of the planet Centauri IV. Don't worry, we'll explain.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Just a few minutes ago, we told you about who the villain would be in Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' - their next original superhero film. That's not enough for you? You want to know who else will be starring in the film? OK, you win. How about this? Zoe Saldana ('Avatar,' 'Star Trek Into Darkness') will star as Gamora in Marvel's next film.
So far, we know who the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' lineup will be: it's Star-Lord, Groot, Drax, Gamera and Rocket Raccoon. But every superhero film needs a strong villain and we haven't heard anything yet on who our heroes will be fighting against. That's all about to change. Meet: THE CONTROLLER.
Included as one of the bonus features on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Phase 1 Blu-ray box set is a five-minute preview video looking at the upcoming Marvel movies like 'Thor 2,' 'Captain America 2,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' 'Ant-Man' and 'Avengers 2.' If you haven't gotten your copy of the Blu-ray box set yet, don't worry: we're giving away a copy this Friday. And if you just can't wait to see that Marvel Phase 2 preview video, you can watch it right here, right now.
At Comic-Con 2012, Marvel showed fans what 'Guardians of the Galaxy' would look like, presenting the first concept art of the team. Today, we've got even more 'Guardians of the Galaxy' concept art, giving us a better look at what Marvel is planning for their first interstellar superhero movie.
Now that we're getting closer to Comic-Con 2013 in San Diego, it's time to start planning, especially since more and more panel appearances are being announced.
While we had an inkling that Marvel and Lucasfilm would be leaving out their upcoming lineups from the convention's events (you can read more about that here), new reports state that 'Captain America 2,' at least, will be hitting up Comic-Con 2013 with its own panel.
Since the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' rumors are still flying fast and furious, let's take this new one with a grain of salt as always...although it certainly makes a lot of sense. The new word around the internet is that the Nova corps will play a role in Marvel's upcoming space opera. Who are these guys? Let's find out.
The upcoming release of 'Iron Man 3' not only kicks off the 2013 summer movie season, it kicks off Marvel's "Phase Two," a slate of films that will build up to the 2015 release of 'The Avengers 2.' Phase Two consists of 'Iron Man 3,' 'Thor: The Dark World,' 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' AKA, all of those movies you're really going to want to see. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently spoke about the Phase Two films, spilling some details for thirsty geeks the world over.
