Sooooooo... Just Who Are These 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Anyway???


As we approach the upcoming Summer movie season, it is only right that as good nerds we automatically begin to look ahead to next year... because lets face it, who really cares about the movies coming out this year? Its all about the future, and the future is certainly looking bright for Marvel Movies. This year we will be getting a Wolverine film, iron Man 3, and a late post summer release with Thor 2: The Dark World... but most of the focus is leaning towards the most mysterious of the announced Marvel films, Guardians of the Galaxy. But the difference between GotG and all of the other Marvel films is one glaring thing: Character Recognition. Most people have a vague knowledge of Thor, Iron Man, and Cap. But who in the fuck are the Guardians of the Galaxy, and how did they get their own big budget movie? Truth be told, they are smaller and lesser known characters in the Marvel Universe... but they do tie in nicely with the characters and story lines that have been sewn together in the Marvel Movie Universe. They are especially tied to the super villain  Thanos, the one who appeared at the end credits of the Avengers and seems to be the villain of the future for that franchise. And I personally can't wait to see a CGI Rocket Raccoon shooting some hand cannons and talking mad shit... he is one of the most underrated characters in the history of comics! So you want a bit of primer to get you excited for Guardians of the Galaxy? Here you go, courtesy of IGN. Some comic book spoilers to follow, but not really sure if any of these things will be used in the movie version of the team. Enjoy the clip after the jump...
