The tenth film to be released in the Marvel cinematic universe and the second this year following on from the spring release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier , Guardians of the Galaxy is a leftfield choice in the deep space location, the obviously more humorous style and that while it takes the lead of The Avengers in featuring an ensemble, unlike that mighty crushing blockbuster cast, none of the characters featured have been established in their own lead up movies or are well known beyond the, admittedly expansive, field of comic enthusiasts. Also strange is the choice of director, James Gunn, a man with extensive screenwriting experience but whose best known feature as director was his debut, the science fiction comedy horror mashup Slither , which failed to make a significant impact at the box office. While the characters may be unknown the cast is possibly one of the strongest Marvel have assembled, most with experience in drama and comedy, indicating that action and laughs are to be the order of the day. What might be seen as a random release from Marvel will actually help to pave the path forward for the next wave of Avengers led movies. The Collector is there, the Nova Corps are featured and could future sequels involve Galactus and the Silver Surfer amongst other cosmic level Marvel characters? Les Anderson — I like the look of it but am hoping for something more than just the usual crash bang wallop. The lack of well-known characters makes for a difficult sell but the possibly gratuitous glistening torso shot might mitigate that… In a strange way it reminds me of a jacked-up version of Farscape. Michael Flett — Typical James Gunn, the momentous buildup, then bring on the funny, and totally deflate any pomposity it could be accused of. Though not large, he does have a dedicated fanbase who will suddenly become very jealous of the amount of attention their formerly personal idol receives when he goes global. And what a cast!
