It has finally arrived, the first Real look on Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy. And I have to say… it looks good. At least so far….
I want to start off by saying that I have never really been acquainted with the Guardians before, all I know about’em is what I’ve seen in various cartoons (like Ultimate Spider-Man etc.) so I’m not quite sure as to how to react to the trailer. With that said, I think it’s fairly safe to say that, judging by the trailer, this movie will have a bigger comedic element to it than previous Marvel-films.
If they have chosen a more comedic route (unless they are supposed to be funnier than say.. Thor or Iron Man, I don’t know?), I feel that Chris Pratt is the perfect (if not only) choice for Star-Lord. As for the other characters, Dave ‘Batista’ Bautista looks great as Drax and Zoe Saldana proves yet again that alien females are hot with her Gamora and for a talking tree, who could’ve been better than Vin Diesel? No one, that’s who. The depth of Diesel’s pipes is a perfect match for Groot. Too bad we didn’t get to hear what Bradley Cooper will do with his Rocket Raccoon, that’s one thing I’m excited for!
Some other faces I was pretty surprised to see in the trailer was Djimon Hounsou and John C. Reilly. Don’t get me wrong, both Hounsou and Reilly are fan-favorites of mine, but it seems like Reilly’s been going for even more comedy than serious acting over the last few years, so I hope that it won’t be TOO comically driven. I’m guessing we’ll have to wait and see for that one!
As far as the plot goes, we didn’t get to see much of what it will be about, but we know from the end-credits scene in Thor: The Dark World that it will have something to do about the Collector, or Taneleer Tivan, (Benicio Del Toro).
