    I love love love the trailer and can't wait for the movie. Was going to post a link to a blog post by Greg Pak (comic book writer and Close Personal Friend of Ed) about Bill Mantlo, the creator of Rocket Raccoon, along with some venom for Marvel for not giving him royalties, but this follow-up on Heidi MacDonald's the Beat weblog (which refers in turn to this post on Comics Bulletin) reveals that Bill actually WILL be benefiting financially based on the movie's success.

    I'm quick to blast Marvel for failing to do the right thing by many, many of their creators, so it's only fair that I underscore that they actually did right by Bill Mantlo in this case. It also means I'm really going to have to make time for this movie when it hits in August.

    And I definitely never thought that we'd be seeing Rocket Raccoon as a part of a major motion picture before Wonder Woman, but that's Marvel vs. DC for you, I guess. Rocket's looking mighty nice, even in this preview footage, though, and it means we can accurately describe American Hustle as that movie that stars Batman, Lois Lane, Hawkeye, Mystique, and Rocket Raccoon.

    AMC Movie Talk Q&A with Chris Pratt, James Gunn, and Kevin Feige. Some highlights:

    • How GotG fits in MCU/Kevin Feige "handful of characters in this movie that carry through to the broader threats that perhaps face characters on Earth"
    • Chris Pratt - physical training for 7 months with trainers, nutritionists, etc.
    • Kevin Feige - it was the 2nd or 3rd day of production, it was Chris' birthday and between takes the crew sang happy birthday and up came a tray of vegetables and I thought, this is "disclipline"/James Gunn - I felt bad
    • James Gunn - I got hired well over a year ago and the whole process is almost exactly 2 years from start to finish but I surrounded myself with the best people
    • Kevin Feige - Rocket was always going to be in it
    • James Gunn - "Hooked on a Feeling" in Peter's mixtape, there since first draft, helps ground the movie
    • James Gunn - Some characters we added later, Yondu was a big deal
    • Kevin Feige - Bug was in early drafts/James Gunn - he was kind of in then kind of fell out but he was never a main Guardian
    • Chris Pratt - That was a practical mask I wore, lights lit up and you could see through, a fan and microphone inside, at first they fell off from heavy winds then it was "bolted" on my face then it got foggy and I ran into really hard things
    • James Gunn - We saw so many great actors for the role, really wanted someone to inhabit the role and more like Robert Downey Junior and I wouldn't want to see Chris Pratt, that fat guy from Parks and Rec? he read, he lost weight for Zero Dark Thirty, we had a common friend...
    • James Gunn - I shot the line up seen in trailer on 2nd day of shooting, actually the preshoot to get those visual effects for the trailer at Comic Con but I was blown away, that was only after 12 days of shooting
    • James Gunn - that first trailer is accurate of what the film is and more trailers will show other scopes like drama

    Our first real look at Ronan. And its still not a great look, IMO. :P How can he see through that helmet? Look forward to the epic-looking fight, though.

    Oh hi, Nebula.

    Oh no, I think he looks great, just didn't think the image was great. As for the new pics, I really like the Nova Corps outfits, wow. Impressive. And another look at Ronan...with a shadow-y image. :P

    There were rumors that
    Spoiler:
    John C. Reilly's character is both a Nova Corps member and a S.H.I.E.L.D. liaison
    .

    Interesting reveal about Yondu and his connection to Star-Lord:

    Spoiler:
    He’s very much a kid at heart,” said Chris Pratt of his role as Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, in early Guardians of the Galaxy press notes. “He’s never known his father, he’s sucked away into space just as his mother dies and is raised by a blue-skinned humanoid. He has spent all his life being told to toughen up and has a false sense of bravado as a result. But deep down he is lonely, and while he’s a guy traveling in space getting to do whatever he wants, he misses his family, his community, and through the course of the story he learns to care again and that there’s more to life than just taking and doing exactly what you want.” About that blue-skinned surrogate father of Peter Quill which Pratt referred to, it's of course Yondu, a Ravenger played by Michael Rooker in Guardians of the Galaxy. “It’s a beautiful story, a great uplifting story and I found the relationship between Quill and Yondu intriguing,” said The Walking Dead actor. “He went to pick him up from Earth and for some reason he decided not to take him where he was meant to go and raised him himself. He made a connection with him, and Yondu now enjoys the fact that Quill has the courage to do his own thing.”

    WOW. You know, they did mention in Thor: The Dark World Prelude that Jane Foster managed to contact an alien civilization between Thor and Avengers. Maybe there is a

    Here's a preview of Guardians of the Galaxy Prelude #1 or 2.
    Get a Jump on August in MARVEL
    I guess the Infinity Stone in this movie is being simply called "The Orb" in shorthand.

    Also, Thanos gets actual dialogue in the preview, which is really cool, and we get to see why Nebula hates Gamora.

    Hmm. Just came to me now. I wonder if in lieu of a teaser they will show a trailer of Age of Ultron at the end (like the way they showed a trailer for Avengers at the end of The First Avenger) or one teaser and the trailer, or skip a trailer and do one or two teasers.

    I'd go with one teaser in the middle of the credits, then a trailer for Age of Ultron at the end.

    4/1: In addition to the two part Prelude comic, a Infinite Comics prelude was release today online. I believe all three will be collected in the GoTG Prelude trade that comes out June or July. Looks to be Gamora-centric. Looking at the preview, looks like the end teaser with Sif and Volstagg visiting the Collector from Thor: The Dark World is part of the story.
    https://comicstore.marvel.com/Marvel...al-comic/33502

    EDIT: 4/2
    James Gunn talks a lot about settings and in the course of, reveals a few things fans might know from the comics.

    And that being with the Collector in the Thor: TDW teaser is confirmed to be his daughter, Carina Walters from the infinite prelude comic. Also, the planet the Orb is on in that temple is Morag and Gamora's history with Ronan. She used to work for him and she works against him.

    Yes. And the facial scars/prosthetics that Nebula has on her face are the result of Gamora refusing to rescue her from a trap, which is why she hates her so much in the movie.

    Some teasing of a character on a throne appearing. Well, really likely to be Thanos.

    During the MTV Movie Awards, a bit of an extended version of the first trailer was shown with Peter Quill introducing himself to Korath.
