Some more photos have surfaced from the set of James Gunn's Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy! These give us our first look at Walking Dead star Michael Rooker in the role of the Yondu. There are also a few other alien characters with guns walking around a spacecraft wreckage.
Marvel President Kevin Feige also recently talked to Empire Magazine about the film, giving us a little more information on the story, when it's set in the Marvel universe and also revealing who the main villain will be. When asked if Guardians takes place at the same time as the other Phase Two films Feige said,
The general answer is yes. It’s not exactly revealed what year or month it is in relation to the other Phase Two films. But yes, it’s the same time.
He went on to discuss how connected it is with the rest of the universe, saying,
Certainly more than the others. We’ve already said that Thanos plays a part in it and is a character in it. That in and of itself should tell you it’s connected to the other worlds.
Since he brought up Thanos, Empire asked if he was the main villain in the movie, and this was his response,
Ronan The Accuser is very much the main bad guy. And Thanos is lurking above it all. You will learn more about Thanos in Guardians, for sure. Certainly you’ll get more than the one turn around and smirk. You’ll get much more than that!
Ronan the Accuser is being played by Lee Pace in the film, and I'm sure he's going to be awesome! Everything Feige reveals here is basically in line with all of our assumptions.
