Marvel Studios is currently in the process of developing their epic big screen adaptation of Guardians of the Galaxy. They most recently hired Chris McCoy to write the script for for the movie, but what exactly will the story he's writing entail? Thanks to Production Weekly, we have a possible plot summary that gives us a little tease of what this movie might be about.
It's about a U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants.
As of right now there's no confirmation that this is plot summary is correct, but it definitely sounds plausible. The U.S. pilot is most likely the character Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, a gun-toting half-human/half-alien inter-galactic vigilante. Then there's the futuristic ex-cons mentioned, which would be Drax The Destroyer, a human resurrected as a green warrior with the sole purpose of killing Thanos; Groot, a giant tree-man; Rocket Raccoon, a genetically engineered animal with a knack for guns and explosives; and Gamora, the last survivor of her species who was saved by Thanos to be his assassin but now battles him.
