It sounds like Marvel could be developing an animated series based on Guardians of the Galaxy. The possibility was hinted at by Marvel comics editor Steve Wacker. Apparently, it was discussed at a "writing summit" for Disney XD's Ultimate Spider-Man. Here's what he said,
"Now, look, I can't officially confirm that we spent a LOT of time talking about the Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon but wouldn't that HYPOTHETICALLY… be amazing?"
If Marvel does end up doing a Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, hopefully they do a better job with it than what they are currently doing with their other animated series such as Ultimate Spider-Man, Marvel's Avengers Assemble, and Hulk: Agents of S.M.A.S.H.
Director James Gunn is currently developing the live-action version of the comic, and it stars Chris Pratt, Benicio del Toro, John C Reilly, Glenn Close and my Doctor Who crush Karen Gillan.
The movie is set to be released on August 1st, 2014. Earlier today we learned who the villains in the movie will be. In case you missed it, click here.
Thanks to Digital Spy for the heads up!
