IMPERIUS REX! Finally, an official thread to discuss past, present and upcoming movies based on comic books and graphic novels. If anyone watches any TV series like agents of shield or arrow you can post about them as well.
I watched a clip of Guardians of the Galaxy today featuring Rocket Raccoon rapidly firing off a large laser gun while standing on Groot's shoulders. It was only a few seconds long and obviously not the final product, but I love the direction Disney/Marvel are taking this. I was a little apprehensive when I first heard it was going into production, but I have since changed my mind. I watched Thor the dark world for the first time the other day and noticed Benicio del Toro as the Collector in the after credits scene. He acquires an infinity gem and will play a more prominent role in GotG. Although, I believe the main villain in the film will be Ronan the Accuser (love that name) played by Lee Pace. It was announced today that an official trailer will be posted in about five days.
DC and Warner Bros. are still committed to making boring "realistic" adaptations of the most recognizable comic book super heroes on the planet (Superman,Batman,WonderWoman) and the franchise is failing miserably because of it.
