    Hmm, SDCC is getting more interesting by the day. So today it's been said:

    1. May 16th, 2014
    2. They mention that their reason for traveling back in time from the 31st Century is to, "help to battle the Badoon, an evil alien race that attempts to conquer Earth's solar system."
    3. Apparently, Marvel are very happy with the script written by Nicole Perlman, a relative unknown who came out of Disney's screenwriting program.
    4. Guardians of the Galaxy movie will be announced at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and reveal that,
    5. "Those in the know say the project is in line with Avengers in tone in the sense there is plenty of comedic elements on display."
    6. Nicole Perlman has written two drafts of the screenplay
    7. Movie will "lead up to" The Avengers 2 in 2015
    8. Thanos will be in the movie.
    9. Should expect to see Nova in it

    Huh... so they're going with the classic origin of the Guardians. That puts into question exactly who the members will be for the movie incarnation.

    If they're with the classic team, then there's no need to worry about taking Rocket Raccoon seriously since he won't even be in the movie ;).

    I expect Thanos will be named this time around, and have a few lines about exactly what he's after and whether or not he's after the Infinity Gauntlet.

    Kevin Fiege confirmed back in April, it would portray the modern team: Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Groot and Rocket Raccoon. So bit of a bummer for the Vance Astro incarnation fans. Could be a mix of both stories or 1) was a misquote.

    Wow. It's cool they're making a movie of them since they're not as mainstream as the other Marvel heroes. The first time I heard of them was when Rocket Raccoon was playable in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Pretty cool stuff.

    Okay, I need some help here guys. I'm a comic book guy, but I've never really read the Guardians of the Galaxy comics, or really much with Thanos. I want do my research before these movies come out. Where do I start with GOTG? Are there any trades that can help someone on the ground floor?

    This needs Peter Cullen to voice Groot (the tree guy).

    That painting looks awesome! Starlord in particular looks very cool. I just hope they can make Rocket Racoon as convincing, funny and badass as they did with the Hulk in The Avengers movie.

    I sure hope it does Drax on the big screen is going to be great. It'd be awesome if the GotG become just as popular as the avengers. Starlord looks awesome. I thought they would use Phyla instead of Gamora but I love her too.

    What will be interesting is that I wonder how Marvel is going to have the general audience buy that tow of GOTG members are a tree and racoon. Looks like it's going to be a hard sell.

    As long as they don't make the mistake Green Lantern did with bad cgi character design. Some of those aliens looked downright scary, and they were the heroes.

    This, plus if you're subscribed to Marvel's digital reader service, every issue from the 2008 run is only a dollar each today.

    I think Liam Neeson Voicing Rocket Racoon would be classic!
