I’m going to be 100% honest, I haven’t been this excited for a Marvel movie since ‘Spider-Man’ all the way back in 2002. I love epic space movies, Star Wars and/or Trek, Enders Game, The Last Starfighter (just to name a few), are what get me excited about going to the local movie theater, dropping $10 on a ticket to sit in a marginally comfy chair near the top middle of the always too cold theater, and getting lost in alient worlds and the void of space for somewhere between 90 minutes and 2 hours.
So after reading that I hope you get a small idea about how much I love space. That being said, when Marvel announced they would be doing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ last year, I was over the moon when The Collector was featured in the mid-credit scene at the end of ‘Thor: The Dark World’. Not literally over the moon, as I haven’t yet gained the power of unassisted flight; nor the ability to withstand the pressures of space with out a suit of some kind. ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is exactly what Marvel needs to put up on the silver screen and as a fan of the comics (especially the current book), I’m ready for August to get here ASAP.
Now for your viewing pleasure… The Premiere of the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer!
