I don't know, although they may have had a string of winners , I'm not sure if they'll be able to pull of a Guardians of the Galaxy movie??

 

I mean these are characters that regular people are not familiar with!! To be honest, even I'm not that familiar with them!! And what a strange cast of characters, a tree guy, a bug guy, an interplanetary police man, and a raccoon?? If that's not a menagerie of weird, I don't know what is? Think John Q Public will be able to get behind such a group??

 

Look how awful Green Lantern was!! Almost the same type of premise, an interplanetary group dedicated to protecting The galaxy!! Of course if Thanos or Galactus are the possible villains, then right there the movie has a chance!! A hero is only as good as their villain!!

 

I think if the bonus scenes are included with all Phase 2 movies, them perhaps the general public will get accustomed to the team?? What do you guys think??

 

So if this film does flop, will it derail or change Phase 3 of the Marvel Universe??

I think the latest rumor has the IM3 endcredit scene leading into Guardians?

I'm not familiar w/ the line-up either, beyond the box set of figures and the latest casting rumors & concept art

I am not worried about it.. mostly because I don't have alot invested into the characters.

 

but it should be fun.. and heck, who knows, it might be the best one yet just because it will be so different and in space.. where things won't need to be made so "realistic"

I think Marvel's built up enough "good will" with the movies they have released that people will give it a chance. The thing is that people know or have been exposed to all the solo Marvel movie hero's (and even the Avengers) for decades in other media. Comics, Cartoons, video game and toys. The GotG are a completely different animal. This version has only existed for less then ten years and really only been featured in the comics. So I do think Marvel has a lot riding on how well this does in trying to have Disney spend money on lesser know properties. Since this will be the lead up to Avengers 2 (IM3, Cap 2 and Thor 2 will all be out well before Avengers 2) and depending on how/if this ties into A2 it could hurt it in the end. But that could be said of any of the follow up movies. If we get a crappy IM/Cap/Thor sequel than it carries over into Avengers 2 on some level.

It can be both a gamble and a reasonable step, on one hand like it was mentioned this team hasn't gotten much exposure outside of comics and one could argue they don't fit the profile of what Marvel has been doing and on the other they appeared in the Avengers cartoon so there is a little exposure plus they already introduced aliens in the Avengers and Thanos made an appearance there who is also rumored to be the villain in this movie so maybe it's not that far off. There is also the fact that this is part of the Phase 2 which will culminate in Avengers 2 in which everyone is assuming Thanos is gonna be the villain so theres is a plan. I guess what I'm saying is that there always a little concern; there was concern with Thor because it was moving away from the "realistic" world that Iron Man established and that worked out fine I'm also confident that Marvel will get it done, more importantly Marvel is confident and that they will get it done. To be honest what has me a little worried so far is the cast: Dave Batista as Drax and Chris Pratt as Starlord but then again I was worried with their previous casting choices and they proved me wrong who knows this might turn out to be a good sci fi movie at least.

Plan or not, let's face it, one of Guardians' main characters is a gun-toting talking raccoon. There is some danger of this thing coming up short.

 

Marvel has carved out a live action universe of costumed super-heroes, rich guys in flying armor, Norse gods, super-soldiers and giant green monsters. For my money, the second they roll out the anthropomorphic rodents the sky is the limit. There'll be nothing they can't pull off.

 

Both optimistic and worried at the same time!!! Which is my whole opinion and reason for this thread!! As awesome of a job they've done, the raccoon and tree guy worry me!! Can it be pulled off without looking stupid??

Standalone movie?? 0_o I had not heard of this. I think this makes me more concerned!! I know I have nothing personally at stake, but this is the universe I've loved since I was a kid!!

I think Guardians of the Galaxy will put the nail in the coffin for "comic book" movies. This comic book movie craze bubble is due to burst. I mean Hollywood is reaching making the GOTG movie. What other properties are left? Nothing left but remakes and reboots.

Guardians of the Galaxy is a strange property to get a movie treatment so soon IMO. It's not that I dislike cosmic characters or their story.. but I would have preferred something more classic first.

 

I thought that the reason they were pushing it so soon is because it tied into all of the upcoming storylines.. space aliens, Thanos, etc.. but to hear that it DOESN'T really tie into the other movies that much is very odd to me. It makes me wonder why they are making it at all..

 

other movies that should be done by Marvel Studios sooner than GoTG:

 

Hulk 2

Namor

Black Panther

Antman/Wasp

Powerman/Iron Fist

Captain Marvel

Dr.Strange

She-Hulk

 

and now Daredevil is back at home with Marvel too!

Yeaaaah. Just like Thor was going to be the nail in the coffin for comic book movies. Or Green Lantern. Or Captain America, or X-Men: First Class, or....any comic book movie that's come out in the last 5 years that didn't star Batman, according to the naysayers. There were even people predicting Avengers was going to be a bomb due to "superhero fatigue."

 

People have been claiming "The Superhero Bubble is going to burst!" for years now and it hasn't happened yet. Superhero movies aren't going anywhere. At this point, even if Guardians of the Galaxy doesn't make a single red-cent, it won't derail Disney/Marvel Studios. Not when it still has guaranteed moneymakers with the Iron Man and Avengers franchises (and to a lesser extent Thor and Captain America). Green Lantern underperforming didn't stop Superhero movies, for example, or stop other superhero movies from being among the highest grossing of pretty much every year since Raimi's first Spider-Man movie hit theaters.

 

There's also a crapload of properties left. They're just not the ones that everyone knows, because let's face it, prior to about 10 years ago, the only superheroes the "general public" really knew were Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Wonder Woman, and maybe the X-Men. Even today there are people that don't realize there's any separation between DC and Marvel characters. In any case, Guardians of the Galaxy being obscure is the whole point of the movie being made. Yes, it's a risk. Yes, it's going to have a more uphill battle than most of the other Marvel films. But if it works, then Marvel has successfully proven they can make movies of even some of their most obscure and outlandish properties and still make them profitable. So from a business standpoint, this is very much a risk worth taking. It's the movie version of "go big or go home."

Yeah but GL was released when the comic book movies were hitting their stride. At that point studios were throwing whatever super hero had cache at the public while the iron (man) was still hot. The Avengers was the comic book thing peaking. X-Men: First Class was Marvel trying to get back what they lost with the dreadful X3. I'm sure the super hero movies aren't going to dry up, but seriously, GOTG? Go big or go home is a good sound bite, but when you spend a couple 100 million on a movie and it doesn't even make a percentage of that back, it sounds like bad business. The end is nigh.
