Guardians of the Galaxy was one of those cool lesser known Marvel gems to me.  Like you guys say though not sure how they could do a live action movie and it not cost a bazillion dollars(unless they want it to look like shit).

I could see a Guardians of the Galaxy movie  going ahead, especially if they are planning to introduce Thanos and the Inifinity Gauntlet in The Avengers. It would kind of be a logical next step.

Saying that I much rather they do a Black Panther movie. Chitewel can definitelty be T`Challa

Gnolam... how could they implement cost controls on a Guardians of the Galaxy movie?

  1. Film almost everything in the studion (green screen).
  2. Don't hire "name" talent... and look for some performers who can do some of their own stuntwork.
  3. Contract a director known for operating within his/her budget and for finishing projects on time.
  4. Meticulously plan how much money would be dedicated to effects work.
  5. Have the initial treatment written by in-house writing talent (and bring about a scriptwriter who expands on this work, as opposed to starting from scratch).
  6. Don't film in 3-D.

As mentioned in my earlier post, this has essentially been done before. As long as the design work is up to par, then the real budget would not be the determining factor as to whether this movie would come off well.

@krathrwardoid- they have already greenlit a sequel to kick-ass and that hasn't been written yet either there is no surprise for that.

I'm so over Mark Millar.  The man is so busy hyping his work that he doesn't have time to actually produce it.  I found Wanted to be vastly overrated, and while I haven't seen the Kick-Ass film yet I thought the comic was just alright.  Also, does anyone else wonder why the man doesn't just become a Hollywood screenwriter?  He's so busy selling the film rights to his various ideas (often before they're even published) that I have to question whether comics are truly his first love.

I'm glad to see that Warner Brothers is putting so many resources behind the Green Latern film.  I have a really good feeling about it and think it could be the DC equivalent to Iron Man (re: breakout hit for a character that had been previously second fiddle to his more famous comrades, in this case Batman and Superman).  Although I agree they need to get their act together on a Wonder Woman movie.  I'd be more interested in that than another Superman at this point (I *still* have a bad taste in my mouth from Superman Returns).

I agree 100% Caveman.....nothing against McKay, but why would they pick him to do suck a dark, dirty, violent and sickly hilarious adaptation??  Is he going to ruin it by making it slapsticky?  Is he going to insist that Will Ferrel be mis-cast as a lead character? I just see this all going badly....

I also agree on the choice of Simon Pegg and going the route of cable tv....I said since issue 1 that Wee Hughie was created to be Pegg....I also pictured Vinnie Jones being cast as well as a few others. 

I just see this awesome story being destroyed just like Hollywood did to Wanted and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen  *sigh*

 I desperately need to see the trailer for GL now... they've wrapped up shooting so somebody tell those fuckin editors to throw a trailer together ASAP n btw i still wanna know who's playing Guy Gardener

I never read the actual issues, fatpantz, but in the first trade of "The Boys" Simon Pegg actually wrote the intro because Wee Huey actually WAS in fact based directly off him.  He talked about how odd it was seeing himself in a movie that never filmed.  lol.

1)Any news as to when and on what cable and/or satellite provider The Hub will premiere?

2)The Boys: Love the comic! Really hopeful that a live action movie will stay as close to the source material as possible. Simon Pegg HAS to play Wee Hughie! Hope he signs on. Right now I would say that the best choice of actor to play BIlly Butcher would have to be Ray Stephenson.

3) Tarzan. With the right director,right actor, big budget, and lots of action one would expect from a Tarzan movie, Warner Bros could have a movie franchise on it's hands. If done right I will be looking forward to seeing this.

I agree with DeeJay. I was thinking of Hellboy as a more apt comparison, but the idea of a smaller budget and a more creative effects team would seem to fit with the Guardians.

Intrigued by Transformers: Prime. I've been waiting since Beast Wars for a decent toon, so hopefully this could be it. As long as it isn't cheap imported japanimation like all the series between Beast Wars and now it might be alright.

Kind of surprised GL is wrapped already. Stoked about this one. It's gonna be huge for DC.
