If Marvel Studios is going to survive, they're eventually going to have to move past the A-List superheroes like Captain America and Iron Man and delve a little deeper into their vaults for new ideas. And while my dream of one day seeing a Rocket Raccoon movie may never be realized (damn it)… Wait a second. I've written this paragraph before. It was earlier this week when talk of a Doctor Strange movie surfaced. And now they're talking about a Guardians of the Galaxy movie which… gasp… means Rocket Raccoon might be headed to the big screen too!
Yes, Twitch Film reports that Marvel Studios is seriously considering a Guardians of the Galaxy movie… which is awesome. A big, grand ol' space opera… Been a long time since we've seen one of those that didn't rhyme with "Tar Gores." The original Guardians of the Galaxy team was comprised of a group of intergalactic adventurers, each representing the last of their species, but in recent years has turned into an all-star lineup of Marvel's best – or at least most interesting – space-faring heroes like Drax the Destroyer, Adam Warlock and, of course, Rocket Raccoon. Sources tell Twitch Film that a GotG movie is in "active development," but doesn't say which version of the series is currently being favored for the big-screen treatment.
I'll give you a hint, Marvel: We want the one with Rocket Raccoon.
CRAVE Online will return with more Guardians of the Galaxy news as long as Vance Astrovik isn't involved.
