While there have been plenty of impressive Marvel movies in the past few years, as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow, comic book fans are probably most looking forward to Marvel's latest project Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel will be mixing human characters, along with motion capture and CGI, with Rocket Raccoon and Groot expected to steal the show.
Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige was chatting to the guys over at Entertainment Weekly, when he explained, "We can take it to all those crazy places as long as all the characters respond in an emotionally truthful way."
He added, "That’s why I believe people are going to respond to Chris Pratt and to an alien Zoë Saldana—because they did respond to that one time before [with Avatar]. And to a tree and a raccoon who, it is certainly our intention, will steal the whole movie."
The Guardians of the Galaxy movie will see Chris Pratt playing Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer and Lee Pace as the villain of the movie Basil Sandhurst aka The Controller. Guardians of the Galaxy is written and directed by James Gunn and will hit the big screen on August 1, 2014.
