Which fowl Marvel character resurfaces in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'?

This post contains potential spoilers for the plot of Guardians of the Galaxy.

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket is a wise-cracking, raccoon-like creature voiced by Bradley Cooper. If Rocket is a departure from the typical caped superhero, he’s not the first anthropomorphic Marvel comic-book character to have his moment on the big screen. Back in 1986, Howard the Duck starred in a notorious bomb, produced by George Lucas, that made the once-cool character a pathetic punchline. He’s been missing from the movies ever since.

But according to StitchKingdom.com, Howard is getting a second chance—from the Guardians themselves. The website received the credited cast list for the Aug. 1 Marvel film, and buried near the bottom was Howard the Duck and a nod to his creators, Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik. Disney did not immediately respond to a request for comment, so it remains unclear whether Howard makes a major appearance, lurks in the background at some alien cantina bar, or just exists as heroic inspiration from Peter Quill’s comic-book reading days on Earth. If it’s the latter case, let’s hope young Peter read the comic-books and never saw the movie. READ FULL STORY

Video: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' TV spots showcase character origins

There are still two more weeks before Guardians of the Galaxy cruises into theaters, but there are two more new TV spots to pad its landing with audiences. For those counting at home, that’s now 22 teasers, trailers, featurettes, extended looks, and TV spots for the big-budgeted Marvel gamble—at least according to the film’s YouTube page.

By now, you must know the renegade characters and what’s at stake—save the galaxy. The new clips explain why members of the self-proclaimed Guardians might have a score to settle with Ronan, the cloaked villain threatening their existence. And Drax the Destroyer proves to be idiom-deficient. READ FULL STORY

Video: Chris Pratt is the man with 12 percent of a plan in 'Guardians' clip

The stakes have been raised. Not only do Marvel’s motley gang of space outlaws have to save the galaxy; they may have to salvage the summer. With the box-office down significantly after a dreadful July 4 weekend, the industry is now counting on Guardians of the Galaxy and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to rescue its fortunes.

In the latest trailer, courtesy of Fandango, Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill recruits a team of ferocious losers—”I mean, folks who have lost stuff,” he says semi-eloquently—to face a blue-faced villain (Lee Pace) who wants to destroy their world.

Fortunately, he has a plan. Or at least 12 percent of a plan. And 90 percent of that 12-percent plan is to rock out to classic 1970s tunes, in this case, “Cherry Bomb,” by The Runaways.

Watch below, and keep an eye out for a quick first look at Michael Rooker as blue-faced Yondu. READ FULL STORY

'Guardians of the Galaxy' footage in theaters on July 7

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t hit theaters until August, but if you’re excited about the prospect of a movie starring Chris Pratt, Green Zoe Saldana, a raccoon voiced by a sexiest man a live and a tree voiced by Dominic Toretto, then you’ll be excited to learn that Marvel is screening some footage early. 150 IMAX theaters will play a 17-minute sequence from Galaxy on July 7, at 7 PM. Tickets are free and are first-come-first-serve on the Facebook page, which probably means it’s already sold out. READ FULL STORY

'Guardians of the Galaxy's UK trailer turns down the music -- VIDEO

Guardians-of-the-Galaxay.jpg

The first wave of teasers and trailers for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy emphasized the comic book movie’s most eccentric qualities, a wild bunch of universe-saving criminals that include a tree, a raccoon, and a green-skinned Zoë Saldana. If you never read Guardians in print, it didn’t really matter, according to the studio; instead, it chose to play up the “these aren’t you older brother’s superheroes” angle. “Hey, we’re playing Blue Swede’s ‘Hooked on a Feeling’ and Norman Greenbaum’s ‘Spirit in the Sky,’” the clips blared. “That’s how you know this movie is cool!”

Perhaps the Guardians are even less well-known in the U.K. — or perhaps those songs are — because they now have a straightforward, ironic-music-free trailer that gives the best primer yet for what this movie is actually about. Chris Pratt’s scoundrel thief gets to deliver all the rah-rah speeches, but Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) is the wise-ass scene-stealer. Watch the de-stylyzed trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Josh Brolin to voice Marvel's supervillain Thanos; Plus, Anna Camp for 'Pitch Perfect 2', more

• Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men) is reportedly voicing a CGI Thanos in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. He’ll be joining fellow voice actors Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon) and Vin Diesel (Groot) in the James Gunn-directed pic, which also stars Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, and Lee Pace. Thanos, a nihilistic purple supervillain, was introduced briefly in the post-credits sequence of The Avengers and is expected to be the main foe in Avengers: The Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015), which will be a more prominent role than his Guardians part. EW’s Darren Franich actually proposed Brolin as an option to voice the part back in 2012 — although folks seemed to prefer Gary Oldman, “anybody from Game of Thrones,” Ian McShane, and Ray Winstone to the W. star.

More gun fights. More spaceship explosions. More Peter Quill swagger. And more Groot.

Since last week, fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of the newest trailer for Marvel’s upcoming intergalactic adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy — and its arrival did not disappoint. In addition to extended looks of our ragtag team in action (and do I mean action — check out those fights!) the trailer also gave us our first look at Glenn Close as Prime Rael, commander of the Nova forces, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, as well as another glimpse of Benicio Del Toro’s The Collector. (Still no glimpse of Thanos, though…) Watch the trailer below:

'Guardians of the Galaxy': Chris Pratt's muscles and his team of space misfits star in the second teaser -- VIDEO

GUARDIANS-OF-GALAXY.jpg

Marvel Studios is offering another peek at what space saga Guardians of the Galaxy will deliver when it hits theaters on Aug. 1. And by peek, we mean a blink-and-you-miss-it teaser.

The 24-second clip is a preview of the film’s second trailer, scheduled for release Monday at 1 p.m. ET on Facebook. A live Q&A with cast members Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, and Karen Gillan and director James Gunn will accompany the world premiere of the new trailer.

Until then, enjoy Pratt’s crazy-ripped physique, which appears to get as much screen time as any character in the new teaser: READ FULL STORY

Stan Lee lets slip news of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' cameo

Samuel L. Jackson has been in most of the blockbuster Avengers-universe movies, but even Nick Fury can’t compete with the superhero ubiquity of Stan Lee. The comic book legend has had winking cameos in 18 different Marvel movies since X-Men premiered in 2000, but he’s usually limited himself to movies based on characters he helped create. Well, that’s about to change. READ FULL STORY

'Guardians of the Galaxy' clip: Chris Pratt's rep does not precede him -- VIDEO

GUARDIANS-OF-THE-GALAXY

Everything I’ve seen of Chris Pratt’s character in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has reminded me of Han Solo — if Han Solo had been played by Ghostbuster‘s-era Bill Murray. As the self-proclaimed Star-Lord, he’s sarcastic, charming, and mildly delusional.

In a new clip that aired on MTV yesterday, Star-Lord, a.k.a. Peter Quill, gets caught red-handed trying to steal a mysterious space orb. It’s the same scene that fans saw in the trailer, but this is the first glimpse at his rocket-boot getaway.

Guardians of the Galaxy opens Aug. 1.
