Guardians of the Galaxy
« on: June 28, 2012, 09:14 PM »
Marvel's other 2014 movie: Guardians of the Galaxy, sounds like it is confirmed (and will be announced at SDCC):

They also have Cap coming in March of that year, and the Amazing Spidey 2 (from Sony) also from the Marvel character stable.  I never thought this was a property that would see a summer blockbuster movie :).

Why? GOTG seems like a really obscure selection...I see now why they keep making toys of these things.

CGI Rocket Raccoon? That does not sound good.

Where the hell is that Darkchylde movie John Carpenter has been working on?

Maybe now people will buy that GotG Battle Pack that's been clogging up my Target's shelves for a couple of months.

First Andy Dwyer as Starlord now Khal Drogo as Drax?  GOTG just got more awesome.  Looking forward to seeing who they pick as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.

Last month they were talking to Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler...

Sandler wouldn't be my first choice, though he'd probably do OK.  Carrey has a lot more range.

Personally I'd go with Bobcat Goldthwait.  That'd be unreal.  Or if you want to go pure professional - Billy West.

Momoa is a brilliant choice for Drax.

Would have preferred Khal Drogo, but since Drax doesn't speak all that much and just beats the **** out of people, I suppose Bautisa could work.

Well, wrestlers DO make great actors...

Oh wait, no they don't.

Sigh.  :(

Wrestlers are great enough actors to fool millions of fans to think their sport is real.   ;)

I wouldn't call The Rock a "great" actor - but he's awesome at being a bad-ass.  I haven't had the chance to see Man with the Iron Fists yet so I can't say anything about Bautisa's performance.  If all he needs to do is be intimidating and bring the pain, I don't see how it'll be a stretch for him.  I mean, how many other misses has Marvel had casting-wise?  I trust them.

Funny you mention the Rock, he's supposedly lobbying for a role in Star Wars VII.

Now that it'll be a studio movie, I expect a lot of actors to be lobbying for a role in the VII.
