Probably one of the most anticipated movies this year is Guardians of the Galaxy. Well those that are aware of the movie at least. This isn’t to say the movie won’t be a success, just that those outside of the geek sphere are probably not aware of the movie, yet. But that isn’t keeping Marvel and Disney from thinking they have something special here.
According to a (rumor) report at Comic Book Movie, sources tell them that Marvel is developing an animated series based on the Guardians of the Galaxy. Supposedly Marvel was not sure whether to go with the Guardians or a new Spider-Man animated series, but from the sounds of it have decided on the Guardians. This won’t be the first we have seen the GotG in animated form, they appeared on Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and more recently in Ultimate Spider-Man (see image below). Since there is no official word from Marvel or Disney yet, we don’t know when it will debut, or if at all.
Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Djimon Hounsou, Benecio Del Toro, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper and Gregg Henry, it is set to be released in theaters on August 1, 2014. (Source: CBM)
