Marvel is Developing ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Movie

There’s been a lot of rumors and assumptions of what new movie Marvel will release for the upcoming years. For 2013, Marvel will bring sequels to ‘Thor’ and ‘Iron Man’.  Another Captain America was confirmed to be released at 2014, an according to Latino Review apparently Marvel has decided that will develop Guardians of the Galaxy also for 2014.

Most comic book fans, especially Marvel die-hard fans, should be familiar with the superhero team. If the Marvel comics universe is called 616, then the Guardians are from a futuristic 31st century alternate universe, Earth 691. The original team first appeared in the reprint title of Marvel Super-Heroes issue #18 (January, 1969) and appeared every now and then in other Marvel titles from Thor, The Avengers, Marvel Team-Up, and many more. The Guardians also had their own self-title comic that ran for 65 issues and a mini-series spin-off ‘Galactic Guardians’ in the 90s. In 2008, the series continued with a new team, which is also the team that will appear in the movie adaptation that includes superheroes such as Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Groot and Rocket Raccoon.

Remember the end credit title of ‘The Avengers’? A huge purple-face villain appeared, and that was Thanos. The ending credit was actually a teaser for both Avengers 2 and Guardians Of The Galaxy. The plot and story line has not yet been revealed, but it is theorized that it will follow the story of ‘The Thanos Imperative.’ Here’s a detailed summary of how the story goes:

While the Guardians of the Galaxy watch over the newly resurrected and imprisoned Thanos and Nova pursues the false Quasar, the Magus and the Universal Church of Truth tear open the Fault (opened at the end of the War of Kings and previously sealed by Adam Warlock). Monstrous creatures emerge from the Fault and are confronted by the Kree and Shi’ar armadas and numerous cosmic beings. Among them is their leader, Lord Mar Vell, who is an alternate version of Captain Marvel. Mar Vell kills the Magus for failing to locate Thanos.

Mar Vell is the avatar of Life, and Thanos is the avatar of Death. Because of this, the battle will only be over when one of them kills the other. While Star-Lord leads the Guardians and Thanos into the Fault hoping to locate Lord Mar Vell, Lord Mar Vell scoures the Marvel Universe for Thanos. Nova leads Quasar, Beta Ray Bill, Gladiator, the Silver Surfer and Ronan the Accuser in an attack on Mar Vell, but loses badly. When Thanos kills Drax the destroyer, his death as the avatar of life alerts Mar Vell to his prescence and he returns to the cancerverse.

When Mar Vell confronts Thanos and the Guardians, everyone is surprised when Thanos immediately surrenders. As he willingly prepares to be sacrificed by Mar Vell, he muses about how the Captain Marvel he knew never considered the consequences of his actions, either. Mar Vell realizes he has been tricked just as Death, summoned by Thanos’s death, arrives to claim him. This causes a chain reaction that kills Mar Vell’s followers and triggers the collapse of the alternate universe and the Fault. Thanos, expecting Death to embrace him for his actions, becomes enraged when she once again spurns him. Teleporting the rest of their comrades to safety, Star Lord and Nova remain behind to contain Thanos by keeping him within the Cancerverse until its imminent destruction.

A memorial service is held for those lost in the conflicts. Quasar informs Rocket Raccoon that without Nova, Worldmind has shut down and the Nova Force disappeared. Still reeling from the struggle, the Kree Empire on Hala is assailed by the forces of Blastaar in a bid for easy conquest. During the battle, Ronan is aided by the other surviving members of Nova’s strike force. Under Cosmo’s guidance, they set up base in Knowhere. The newly-christened “Annihilators” are proposing they be a loose-knit force to be implemented only as the “last resort.” Abruptly, Ikon of the Spaceknights materializes in their midst, proclaiming urgency in her errand and asking where to find “this team [she is] supposed to lead”.
