Marvel's mysterious 2014 movie is revealed and it is not Black Panther

06.28.2012

Despite our theorizing about a Black Panther movie yesterday, it looks like Latino Review has discovered what Marvel's unknown 2014 film shall be.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.

That's right, Schmoes. In 2014 we will be getting another superhero team movie, albeit one with lesser known heroes. The Guardians comic originally appeared in 1969 and tied in directly with both Thor and The Avengers. The upcoming film will deal with the rebooted 2008 version of The Guardians whose members are Bug, Cosmo, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord, Jack Flag, Moondragon, Gamora, Mantis, and Major Victory.

Confused? Unless you are a hardcore comics fan, you likely are unfamiliar with these guys. The one thing you need to know is that the 2010-2011 storyline for The Guardians was called "The Thanos Imperative" and dealt with the super-team watching over alien villain Thanos. When all hell breaks loose, they must work with Captain Marvel's alternate to destroy the bad guy.

More confused? The Guardians and The Avengers exist in two different comic realities. Since the Marvel Cinematic Universe exists in yet another reality, there is no reason why the movie version cannot have these heroes exist along side our better known super squad. The fact that Thanos is clearly hinted at in THE AVENGERS should have clued us all in that The Guardians were coming.

The question remains as to whether GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY will cross over with THOR 2, CAPTAIN AMERICA 2, or IRON MAN 3. Needless to say, this is going to be a very interesting project for Marvel.

Expect more news and a formal announcement from Marvel regarding the project as Comic Con 2012 quickly approaches.

Extra Tidbit: I am really bummed that BLACK PANTHER is not coming.

I figured. Feige talked about them a few times.

Although I feel like I should mention none of the characters mentioned in the body of the article are in the pic. The pic is actually of the Annihilators.

Wow, talk about a curveball! I (and almost every movie nerd) was almost sure that this is a BLACK PANTHER project which will lead directly into AVENGERS Phase 2.....But now with this out of left field movie with a mostly unknown group of heroes, we don't know what to expect. Yeah, I'm as much bummed about it not a Black Panther movie as you Alex, but to tell you the truth, this just makes the Phase 2 MORE INTERESTING for me....Because previously atleast we had some kind of hypothesis what to

Idea! And isn't this great?? Marvel has my uttmost respect and faith when it comes to their laidout plan, and as it was so beautifully & perfectly worked out for Phase 1, I'm more than sure that they know what they're doing and do have a masterplan for the future storylines. Whatever slight bit of reservation I had regarding this Guardians thingy when I first heard it, disappeared the moment I read their supposed connection with Thanos, and because Thanos is surely going to be the next big bad of Avengers, this clearly means they're going with their proper planning & groundwork for something fantastic. Right now, I'm frekking PUMPED!

Tidbit: Don't be too sad that BLACK PANTHER isn't happening right now, bacause in the last scene in IRON MAN 2 Wakanda was a pinpoint on that map in the Shield room.....So we're going to get Black Panther one way or another.

RIGHT ON MARVEL!!!!!!!!!!

What an epic and brilliant decision, The Avengers are definitely going to need the Guardians help against Thanos. Especially when you consider that Thanos can flick the Hulk like he's a gnat. This pleases me.

This is a joke right????

This has got to be a joke. If this is true than Marvel is really dropping the ball. Even though I personally thought The Avengers was overrated, I still respect the way Marvel built up to it. They did a great job of introducing these bizarre characters to a public that knew dick about them. That way everyone knew these characters going into the Avengers making it easier to get into the action. Now they want to make a similar type of movie but without the build up films and featuring even more

Now they want to make a similar type of movie but without the build up films and featuring even more lesser known characters. I know quite a bit about Marvel's gallery of heroes despite never reading many comics and I have NEVER heard of these guys. Honestly everyone of those characters your mentioned sound lame as hell just from their names alone. I'm all for Marvel digging deep into their gallery but this just doesn't sound good at all and I don't think the public will take to it like the Avengers.
Honestly a move like this should come after the Avengers produced a few sequels and the leads (Downey, Evans, Helmy) are wanting out. Then Marvel could go ahead with these lame heroes to try and fill the void. But right after the heat of the Avengers?? Terrible move! The Black Panther movie would have been pretty badass if done right. Plus it would go over very well with the public seeing as how there aren't many African American super heroes. Panther and Antman are the way to go. Maybe introduce a few more minor heroes (Wasp, Vision etc) in those movies then BAM! AVENGERS 2 with EVERYONE! This post Avengers time is critical to Marvel's future success and I don't like the looks of this.

YEEEESSSS! I just finished reading The Thanos Imperative and one of my favorite series was The Annhilation Conquest. Drax the Destroyer fits in PERFECTLY with Thanos as a main villian. I am kind of surprised they would go this route as Guardians has a healthy mix of mystic marvel in it too ( i.e. Adam Warlock) and the non-sensical characters too ( Groot, Rocket Racoon). Man I am so hyped up right now and the NBA draft is on tonight too! BRING IT ON

Personally Im very excited about this. This version of Guardians of the Galaxy came out of the superb Anhialation mini series, which in its own right would make for a perfect movie. If handled right, and lets be honest, to this point Marvel has handled everything right, they could have a new franchise beyond the avengers films, that spans the entire marvel universe, with epic sci fi stories. Just becuse some of you people havent heard of the characters doesnt mean they arent great characters.

So basically this "supposed" movie is just a build up to Avengers 2 while introducing Thanos to the unknowns. I love super hero movies but I wish the studios would cool their jets and build some anticapation instead of forcing, what's more or less trailers for things to come, down people's throats. With that said; I'm still looking foward to The Amazing Spider-Man. Sue me.

Sweet...

Rocket Raccon making it to the big screen...sign me up.

Dude, all the haters who don't know the characters just relax, Marvel (Studios) is like the new Pixar, they don't make bad movies. They could make a Howard the Duck movie and it would be awesome.

Marvel's Cosmic Universe...

...in my opinion is some of the best story telling that Marvel has EVER done. Not to say The Avengers, X-Men, etc. aren't great sources to pull material from, but the cosmic universe is just soooooo much more vibrant, with near limitless material to work with. Doing a Guardians of The Galaxy movie opens the doors for more amazing characters like Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Noh-Varrr, Adam Warlock, Nova, The Kree Empire, The Shi'ar Empire, Gladiator & The Imperial Guard, and my personal

If Thanos is going to be part of the upcoming plot for The Avengers movies, then I think Adam Warlock may be right around the corner, and what better way to introduce him, than in a Guardians Of The Galaxy movie.

Also, as Stevemoto said below, haters relax. Marvel has many unique and amazing stories in their coffers just waiting to be tapped. It's not just all Iron Man, Hulk, Cap, Thor, etc., those characters just happen to be easier to sell because of the general populations knowledge of those characters. TRUE comic fans will know, understand, and appreciate a Guardians Of The Galaxy movie though.

This makes me excited and scared all at once. The Abnett/Lanning cosmic books from the last 4 or 5 years are some of my favorite, but the concept may be a little too 'out there' for most audiences. Although, if they use it to introduce Thanos, it might work.

Why do you have to know who these characters are anyways? Nobody was familiar with any of the characters of Avatar, but it was a space sci fi movie that broke all the records. Prometheus was dealing with sci fi stories that were pretty out there, but it was an awesome movie. All you need are good script writers, a creative director, an inspiring cast, and anyone who doesnt know about the guardians of the galaxy can learn who the characters are as the movie progresses, the same way they

Next... ROM ?

I'm hip to this news because it COULD be the beginning of a great space saga... IF done right, obviously !
Then again, I can see AVENGERS 2 having ANOTHER VILLAIN than THANOS, and he would be deal with in GotG instead. Because, otherwise, in means TWO TEAMS should work together to fight him in A2... It would be a bit crowded, don't you think ?...
Oh, and about Black Panther (still voting for Boris Kodjoe), I can see him appearing as a supporting character in Captain America 2 to 'test' him

This could be great! I think a different type of superhero than what is currently oversaturating the market will be a welcome change. Especially with epic scifi written all over it. Hopefully it's done right.

Won't work...

This will be very different than what we are used to with comic movies... It is a team from the start and I really hope they do not use Thanos. It just would not work. Where would they be when Thanos strikes in Avengers 2?

But they arent a team from a start. They became a team in 2008, some 50 years after the avengers became a team. They are a bunch of individuals who had no interest in being in a team, that had to band together in order to stop a threat much greater than them. How is that remotely different than Avengers? Its just on a bigger scale.

Sweet!

glad to see Marvel's space entities getting a big screen appearance! Not exactly sure who the GotG are but hope that movie will touch on Infinity, Death, The Beyonder, The Watcher, etc....I always found those character concepts very cool!

Wasn't necessarily hoping for a Guardians Of The Galaxy movie but hey, why not, could be cool. And Marvel/Disney making this movie doesn't mean they would go with the usual line-up from the books. They have more than enough cosmic/space character to pic from to make the Guardians an even more interesting team!
P.S. I really wish Marvel could get the rights back to the FF. Now THEN we could get a really great "superhero space movie". Surfer and Galactus done RIGHT! ...one day...one day...

Now that I just mentioned Galactus, Silver Surfer, Marvel/Disney and "done right" below, I just had a vision of a movie that could have been... That is if Fox didn't owned the rights to half that behemoth of awesomeness that movie could be. Imagine what they did for Avengers. But a couple of movies done over a couple of years leading up to an Avengers/FF/and some lone wolf heroes teaming-up to save Earth from Galactus. I think our brains would break from seeing this much awesome on screen.
