I thought that was who they were talking about at first and I was actually pretty excited. McGinley needs to be in more stuff, and I'd get a real kick out of seeing him forced to react to space shenanigans.

Isn't it both teams? They cast Yondu last month, didn't they?

I'm having a hard time imagining who Chest Rockwell will play, unless it's Charlie 27 with a dumpload of CGI for his body.

I want to be excited, but it says the script has gone through four writers, I'm also not sure how their going to introduce so many new (in the movies) characters with various backgrounds into the marvel (movie) universe all at once. I worry a little since its completely against what they've been going for since the first iron man. But i want to be positive and I'll wait to see a trailer.

Marvel Studios is saying this version of Yondu is the villain, not a member of the team.

And the role JCR is playing was originally a Kree, I believe, but in here he's a human.

Just keep in mind that this is the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's not 616. It's not Ultimate. It's a new universe with a lot of differences. It's a universe where there wasn't a Fantastic Four OR a Galactus. It's a universe where there are none of Galactus' heralds, either. No mutants on Earth. No Phoenix Force in the entire universe!!! No Spider-Man. No Doctor Doom!!! No Magneto or Professor X. No Shi'ar at all! No Brood, either! No Apocalypse, No Mister Sinister... No Daily Bugle! No J. Jonah Jameson! No Norman Osborn! A world where the first publicly-known superhuman was Captain America, and after him things were pretty quiet until Iron Man, the Hulk, and Thor showed up. A universe where Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne were NOT founding members of the Avengers, but Hawkeye and the Black Widow were! A world without Otto Octavius or the Hellfire Club. A world where there is no Juggernaut and the first aliens to attack Earth are the Chitauri... And shapeshifting Skrulls do not exist! A world where there was apparently no Baron Zemo, and Arnim Zola was just a regular man. Where Killian was the Mandarin, where Tony didn't go through alcoholism, where Bucky was a grown man when he was with Captain America. Where the Howling Commandos didn't include Nick Fury.

It's a different world. Accept it and enjoy it.

Since he's in the next Captain America movie.. and he's still alive.. something must be up with him.

(I have no familiarity with him outside that one movie)

I like comics, and I've really enjoyed what Marvel's put out so far, but I bet this movie tanks (relatively speaking). I think talking racoons and walruses are way past the point where most people's tolerance for weird characters expires.

I dunno. They have been slowly pushing the bounds of what they can get away with. Iron Man 3 was really not what you expect out of a super hero movie, and it still has had a billion dollar box office. I think at this point, they should go balls out and let talented casts and crews follow what ever weird place their muse takes them.

Or maybe I'm just hoping this all leads to a Nextwave movie that is 120 minutes of Warren Ellis-scripted insanity.

I think if they play Rocket Raccoon absolutely straight, as in the comics, where he's a tough-talking ass-kicking hero, and let the comedy solely from the fact that he's a farking raccoon, he will be a huge hit with everybody. I so very badly wanted it to turn out Michael Rooker was the voice of RR. That would fit perfectly.

except that Marvel makes movies that people watch again and again (think: Star Trek).  Crap like Avatar are movies that people watch once, maybe twice and then forget.  I really want GoTG to be good...  I just don't see how it can be.  I will reserve judgement until I have seen the film (honestly, I expected Captain America and Thor to both suck and both were just outstanding films) but I just don't see how Guardians can make a good live action film especially since it will be set in the Marvel cinematic universe (then again I don't see how Thanos is going to work either, but there he was in the Avengers stinger).

Should have went with Nova.

As for movies with anthropomorphized animals people watch repeatedly: Finding Nemo.

FN is a cartoon.  People expect talking animals in cartoons.  It is much harder to make believable in live action.  See - Smurfs or those terrible chipmunk movies or hell, G-Force (the guinea pig movie).  It is hard to suspend disbelief in live action.  What you usually end up with is something kids can watch a couple times but that adults roll their eyes at.  Can you seriously see RDJ in full Iron Man armor holding a conversation with a talking racoon and NOT roll your eyes at the idiocy on display?

Also - the fish and animals in FN are NOT anthropomorphized.  They just talk to each other.  Humans can't interact with or understand them.  Big difference.
 
2013-05-26 10:48:33 AM
Um, giving them human personalities is too anthropomorphization!

If you're not willing to accept FN, then I rebut with Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Again, it's not the concept, it's the delivery.

Especially since the whole Coulson thing actually fell very, very flat outside of a very limited demographic that's sort of a good demonstration of the Snakes on a Plane effect... if you ask the vast majority of people that watched the movie what they thought about the character you'll just get a "who?"

I know Whedon sort of has his own subculture/echo-chamber thing going on, but that's the kind of thing that big-budget films usually rightly want to avoid in their movies.

Howard the Duck was a Marvel character, but the movie was a George Lucas creation, and none of it had anything to do with Marvel Studios or the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

And despite all that, it still gave us a few great moments.

I'd say Rocket Raccoon could work if they make him look right and get the right actor to voice him. It really is all in the delivery with Rocket. He has to be funny enough and dangerous enough to distract your attention away from his species and make you love him.

If they stick with the way he is current being written, I think they'll do okay:

So Coulson fell so flat that he's going to be the anchor of a primetime network series? Wow, imagine how popular he'd be if the character actually worked.

Yes, except for two things: no stupid Cockney accent for an animal not even native to England, much less our planet; and raccoons ain't brown. I wanna smack the colorist every time I see that dumb shiat. Hopefully they source the original Mignola art, altho the current uniform is cool.

Wait wut?

Yeah they're more commonly gray, they can also be brown and any mixture of gray with brown in between.

/Brown ink likely looks better in print, which is probably why it's that way in the comics.

What does Whedon have to do with anything? Coulson had his start in Iron Man,  and then had his biggest roles previous to the Avengers in Iron Man 2 and Thor, neither of which Whedon had any involvement with, aside from the final scene of Thor, which was a set-up for The Avengers.
