Marvel's rumored Guardians of the Galaxy is moving back its 2014 release date

Last week I erroneously reported that Marvel had officially announced their 2014 movie would be GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (sorry, Latino Review!). While we will not know officially until Comic Con what that movie will actually be, it is almost guaranteed to be GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.

So, with that technicality out of the way, Box Office Mojo updated their release schedule and it now shows the still untitled 2014 film has been moved from May 16th to August 1st, 2014. That means that CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 will open in April to start the summer and the second film will close it out.

As many of you can tell from the fact that GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is a lesser known squad than THE AVENGERS, Marvel will need to build up the momentum. Plus, August tends to be a weaker release month compared to May, so they are hedging their bets that CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 will bring in the money and give them some more time to build buzz for GUARDIANS.

Maybe Marvel should just bank on Rocket Raccoon as the star of the film and take it from there.

I like Guardians and I drop nothing but 10 hit combos with Rocket Raccoon in Marvel vs Capcom. However, I really don't think a machine gun tooting talking intergalactic bounty hunter Raccoon, is going to appeal to the general audience. Let's not even start on how they are going to sell Groot to the masses. Me being the Marvel fanboy will be there. Heck I will even watch a Mojo solo movie if they make one.

Don't worry, it's Guardians

Don't worry, Alex, it's going to be Guardians. Marvel's kinda-sorta relaunch happening in October all but spells it out. Take a look at the promo piece by Joe Quesada...Nova (although not an "original" Guardian) and Rocket Raccoon are featured prominently when they usually are sidenote characters. Have a look: [link]

I have a feeling Cap 2 will get moved to the May slot, Marvel loves the month of May.
