Marvel Studios' 'Phase Two' movie slate currently stands with 2013's Iron Man 3 and Thor 2, followed by Captain America 2 and an untitled flick in the first half of 2014. While it was expected Black Panther would snatch that 'untitled' spot, Variety reports Disney is moving faster on Guardians of the Galaxy, having recently forked out to secure the trademark rights to the picture and the likeness of it's 31st century meets modern day cast for a range of related consumer products.
With the "incredible" Guardians of the Galaxy script apparently penned by hit writer Nicole Perlman, the feature will build off the Thanos element dropped by the Avengers movie and lead directly into Avengers 2. Better yet, if the Variety report stays true, Guardians of the Galaxy would hit May 16th 2014 - a certain comic fan's birthday.
Look for any official skinny to come from Marvel's Comic-Con Iron Man 3 show in two weeks. While I always thought DC's 31st century Legion of Super-Heroes would beat Marvel's Guardians to the big screen, my mind is a-buzz over the possible characters involved.
Will Marvel go 'all-star' like Annihilators or with the 90's crew pictured above? How cool would Starhawk in 3D be?! What do you think?
