GuardiansMarvel Studios’ movies are known for their post-credits sequences that tease what’s to come. Since Marvel producer Kevin Feige said that the post-credits sequence is not mandatory and are merely for fun, some have speculated that Guardians of the Galaxy might not have one at all. But according to a few sources, director James Gunn is currently doing re-shoots for Guardians of the Galaxy in Los Angeles.

Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista are the only actors confirmed for the re-shoots, but a few clues have surfaced that suggest Gunn might be shooting the post-credits sequence for Guardians of the Galaxy. From @GuardGalaxy:

TV Review: Marvel Studios – Assembling A Universe

fb share tweet share

GuardiansIt’s a colossal understatement to suggest that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has had an impact on the landscape of feature films this past decade. Beating the odds and making a successful Iron Man movie was one thing, but they had the gall to include a post-credits Easter egg scene that introduced Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and which suggested they had much, much bigger plans in the works. Premiering tomorrow night, a TV special called Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe tracks how Marvel Studios did the seemingly impossible — creating a true movie counterpart to the serialized and intertwined stories fans loved from their comics, and making huge bank off unsure-thing characters such as Captain America, Thor, and — dare we hope? — the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Kevin Feige, James Gunn, And Chris Pratt Talk Guardians Of The Galaxy

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Two in full effect, Guardians of the Galaxy will show whether or not Marvel Studios can sell even the weirdest of its characters to general audiences. In an interview with AMC Movie News, Marvel producer Kevin Feige, director James Gunn, and Guardians star Chris Pratt spent more than a half-hour talking about the new comic-book movie and fielding questions from their fans. First up, they explained that while Guardians of the Galaxy takes place in the same universe as The Avengers, Iron Man, and Captain America, it will feature new threats to Earth that haven’t been explored in any earlier Marvel movie. These threats could come to Earth, but for now they’re mostly isolated in space. Feige says:

All of us at the studio wanted to do something new, wanted to do something original … Excited about doing something, frankly, that most people had never heard of… [It] couldn’t be more distant in geography to the other films. 99% of this movie takes place on the other side of the galaxy. Never mind the themes and character interaction… there are a handful of characters you’ll see in this movie who will carry through to other films as threats to Earth.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Footage To Air On Marvel TV Special On ABC

GotGSince 2008, Marvel Studios has been on the top of Hollywood. It’s strange to think, but back then, studio executives and film pundits were unsure if the original Iron Man movie was going to be successful. Iron Man and Tony Stark weren’t household names the way Batman or Spider-Man were, and the idea that five standalone superhero movies would build toward one big epic movie with The Avengers was just absurd. Now that we’re firmly in Phase Two of Marvel’s movie empire, and a new TV special will give viewers an inside look at what’s in store for fans in the upcoming years, including new footage from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe is a one-hour TV special that will take viewers behind the curtain at Marvel Studios. The special will air on ABC this March and will feature “a front row seat to the inception of Marvel Studios, the record-breaking films, the cultural phenomenon, and further expansion of the universe.” During the TV special audiences will be treated to a sneak peek at three upcoming Marvel movies, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Rocket Raccoon Gets A New Spin-off Comic Book Series This Summer

rocket-raccoon-new-comic-book-series-01With the upcoming release of Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel Studios is putting the spotlight on the obscure comic property in a big way. There are rumors that Marvel is developing a new animated series focusing on the cosmic team of outlaws, and now it appears that fan-favorite Rocket Raccoon is getting his own spin-off series this summer.

Comic book writer/artist Skottie Young is putting the Guardians of the Galaxy’s expert marksman and master tactician front and center in the new series. Since Rocket and Groot are pretty much BFFs, the tree-like alien companion Groot will also be along for the ride. According to Young, the series will not follow Brian Michael Bendis’ ongoing series or the events of the new movie, but will rather be a complete, one-off story. Young told MTV:

‘I like any of the humorous characters, any of the ones I can have fun with,’ Young said. ‘And around this time Guardians of the Galaxy was getting restarted, so I said if there was any of way of doing some sort of Rocket Raccoon story that would be fun too!’

Jason Momoa Explains Why He Turned Down Guardians Of The Galaxy

Bautista/MomoaLast year, Jason Momoa was up for the role of Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The studio seemed so impressed with Momoa’s presence and physicality that it appeared that he was a virtual lock for the role. But at the last minute, Momoa turned down the part and Marvel started screen testing again, deciding to have WWE wrestler Dave Bautista portray the resurrected alien.
