According to Twitch Film Marvel Entertainment is moving forward with development on a feature film adaptation of Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel president Kevin Feige actually mentioned the possibility of this movie last year saying, "I think Black Panther and Wakanda has some amazing potential to be a feature film. Doctor Strange, as you've mentioned. There are some obscure titles, too, like Guardians of the Galaxy. I think they've been revamped recently in a fun way in the book." The comic was created in 1969 and is set in the distant future, revolving around a group of alien beings who travel back in time to protect the earth from alien invasion.
It was recently announced that a script was turned into Marvel for Dr. Strange, and that they are actively looking for a director to take on the project. As for a film based off of Guardians of the Galaxy, it makes sense. It has the potential to be a big epic space sci-fi adventure, and it's a film I would love to see get made, so I hope it happens. What do you all think of the possibility of a Guardians of the Galaxy movie?
Here's a short little introduction to the comic:
Even the 31st Century needs heroes, and the call has been answered by the Guardians of the Galaxy, a team of superhuman and extraterrestrial adventurers dedicated to the safeguarding of the Milky Way Galaxy from any force that threatens the security or liberty of its various people.
The original members of the team include Major Vance Astro, an astronaut from the 20th century Earth who spends a thousand years traveling to Alpha Centauri in suspended animation. He is also the future-counterpart of the hero Vance Astrovik, now called Justice. Martinex T'Naga, a crystalline being from Pluto; Captain Charlie-27; a soldier from Jupiter, and Yondu Udonta, a blue-skinned "noble savage" from Beta Centauri IV comprise the original team.
Each is apparently the last of their kind and is forced to unite as a team against the actions of theBadoon, an alien race which attempts to conquer Earth's solar system. During the course of the war against the Badoon, the team recruit two more members - Starhawk and Nikki - and travel back in time and encounter several of the heroes of 20th century Earth, including Captain America, and the Thing.
