Marvel’s newest film, Guardians Of The Galaxy is in theatres now, to
quite a bit of early praise. Seeming coming out of nowhere, this is an oddball property, helmed by an oddball team. In all fairnes, though, Marvel has been hitting them out of the park. So how does this one do? Is it another fine entry, or should it be left in the hands of the Collector?
Whether it’s W. or Planet Terror or Men in Black III or hell even Oldboy, I’m pretty much a fan of Josh Brolin in anything. He’s just a cool actor to watch— so it’s pretty good news to me at least, to find out he’s been cast as Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy and therefore, likely Avengers 2. Thanos is a pretty great top shelf bad guy, and Brolin definitely has the pipes and the attitude for the role.
Now that Disney owns a good chunk of everyone’s childhood for the foreseeable future, it’s all just one big happy Disney-Pixar-Lucasfilm-Marvel family. So when Karen Gillan had to shave her head for the role of Neubla in Guardians of the Galaxy, that gorgeous hair just didn’t get swept down the drain— it was donated to the Star Wars VII props and costume department, where it will be turned into a wig, or a beard, or maybe even a long, luscious, fiery merkin for some alien race.
Fans at SDCC 2013 were shown the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy and finally some handheld shaky footage hit the internet, and then was promptly shut down.
Here’s all you need to know about the trailer. Looks fucking fantastic, even in shitty low quality anigifs.
Actress Glenn Close was recently added to the cast list for Marvel’s Guardian of the Galaxy for an unknown role, and in even better news, former Doctor Who companion Karen Gillan has also been added to the film, but again, we don’t know who she might be playing.
