Rocket Raccoon may be one of the first animal superheroes to make it to the big screen, but he's certainly not alone in the pages of Marvel and DC comics. In fact, superhero comics have been introducing animal heroes for years, ranging from stand-alone heroes with unique origin stories to pets who simply share the same powers as their owners.
For Marvel, San Diego Comic-Con is a playground where fans and news outlets tightly congregate to get a sneak peek at the upcoming slate of MCU films. We already knew that the studio behind some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters would be making an appearance, and Marvel Studios confirmed as much today, but that's all they're telling us! Still, based on our previous knowledge, there are a few things we can expect.
Michael Douglas is not what we would call a comic book guy. Sure, the veteran actor will next star in Peyton Reed's 'Ant-Man' (and he even appears to be growing some wild facial hair for the gig), but that doesn't mean that any of this comic book stuff is in his wheelhouse. He even thinks that 'Ant-Man' is about an ant. No, really.
Is it August 1 yet? Almost! But while we wait (impatiently) for the release of Marvel's intergalactic superhero epic 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' today brings a new featurette exploring the background and motives of the Guardians' green-skinned and deadly assassin, Gamora.
It was of little surprise to fans that DC would dominate the TV side of Comic-Con 2014 given its four offerings, but what of Marvel's slate, between ABC's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' 'Agent Carter' or Netflix's 'Daredevil?' Find out what to expect from the Marvelous-world of TV at Comic-Con 2014 with their full announcement!
We've already seen 17 minutes of Marvel's upcoming space opera, 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' including an extended scene and one badass sizzle reel. However, this new sci-fi world still has more nooks and crannies to explore, and 27 new photos from the film have debuted to help us traverse unknown terrain.
On Monday night, July 7, Marvel teamed with the folks at IMAX to screen 17 minutes of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' for fans ahead of the film's August 1 release. Tickets and seating were first come, first served, so you can imagine the turnout, but we were there to take in all the never-before-seen footage. And boy, was there a lot to take in.
Directed by James Gunn, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' stars Chris Pratt as the thief-turned-hero Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as assassin Gamora, Dave Bautista as the crazed Drax The Destroyer, Bradley Cooper as the trigger-happy Rocket and Vin Diesel as the tree of a few words Groot, as they band together to stop the villains plans of Thanos and Ronan The Accuser. It's one of Marvel's most ambitious films to date, taking the universe established with The Avengers into outer space, and here's everything we learned from the 17-minute 'Guardians of the Galaxy: An IMAX 3D First Look.'
Andrew Garfield previously said that he'd like to see Spider-Man and The Avengers team up on-screen, but that doesn't mean his wants have become reality. Despite alleged photographic evidence of the web-slinging actor moseying around on the 'Avengers 2' set, it all turns out to be one big hoax!
All of the trailers for 'Guardians of the Galaxy' have showcased a wry sense of humor, so it's no surprise that the new viral website designed to promote the film is as clever as any other online campaign we've seen. Designed as a site for a travel agency specializing in booking tours to distant
Ever since the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' trailer brilliantly used Blue Swede's "Hooked on a Feeling" to introduce us to Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, Groot and Rocket, we've been waiting patiently to see what else was included on Peter Quill's "Awesome Mix Vol. 1" (also known as the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' soundtrack). Today, we have confirmation on the track listing and it's pretty amazing all these songs have somehow found their way into a big superhero movie.
