are forgetting their early 90's comic run that Jim Valentino started...reaching 62 issues, unfortunately it died after Valentino left to get Image started in '92 and launched his series ShadowHawk.  I have all issues sitting in plastic....maybe it will become time to sell these little treasures ;)

Well as far as voicing Rocket Racoon I hope he has a british accent or a scottish accent. So I vote for David Tennant or Vinny Jones.

As far as this happening I hope they have Drax and Quasar as well as Rocket and Groot. This would be such an epic film on so many levels. Hell I would love to see a cameo of the Silver Surfer or as he's know in the 31st century the Keeper of the Uninverse. How awesome would that be.

And why do people keep saying that Iron Man was an obscure character. Of course he was not known like Supes, Bats or Spidey, but he wasn't the Blue Beetle

I don't know, I think Iron Man was obscrue enough to the general movie-going populace...as a Marvel fan, I don't really think that he was obscure though...I'd say the obscurity of a character all depends on which of the big 2 comic companies a person is a fan of.  But honestly, I'd say that to the general movie-going populace, especially those who either don't read comics, or worse, look down on those who read comics, Iron Man and Blue Beetle would both be pretty damn obscure...just my 2 cents.

SarcasticCaveman 6/30/2012 6:40:09 PM

In all honesty, I think the reason that Blue Beetle SOUNDS more obscure is simply because his name doesn't follow the recipe "random noun/adjective man/woman/girl/boy/lad = Superhero name".

I'm only familiar with the 90's version, but it was pretty cheesy along with much of Marvel's cosmic scene.  It seemed like it existed only so they could create 30th century versions of current Marvel characters.  Plus the title is pretty campy for a movie.  Hate to be a negative Nancy, but they should do Black Panther instead.  Hold off on messing with their cosmic stuff until their Mouse overlord can re-secure the rights to the Fantastic Four from Fox.

I really want Marvel to roll on with more and more or their characters getting movies. With that said, I personally believe this movie will be what brings Marvel back down to Earth. The Avengers worked because most everyone grew up with their characters in some form or another. Even if they didn't grow up with them, they still got to know them in their own individual blockbuster movies.

These characters are interesting, but is that enough to warrant their own movie? One of the end scenes of The Avengers says yes.

My guess is that the only reason Marvel is doing this movie is because they want to have a good lead in to the next Avengers movie. Think about it...Thanos...Adam Warlock...Infinity Gauntlet. Yeah, Marvel is smart.

I still believe this movie will bring Marvel back down a notch, but Marvel can afford to do that. After all, they're thousands of notches above DC. How about this for an end credit scene to Guardians of the Galaxy...

The Guardians, upon realizing Thanos is gathering the Infinity gems together, send Adam Warlock to Earth in hopes of seeking out The Avengers. I'm pretty sure us comic fans would freak out to see Adam standing before Earth's mightiest heroes...a la Nick Fury waiting on Tony Stark to come home.

I agree with reek on one thing here - I also think that Marvel's cosmic scene is pretty damn cheesy.  Marvel is better at everyday heroes than DC, but DC owns Marvel on space based heroes and groups.  However, I think the possibility for great cosmic Marvel movies exists, depending on one thing - how well they EMBRACE and GLORIFY the cheese factor.

Look at Buffy the Vampire Slayer...look at Supernatural...these shows are most always at their best when they embrace their cheese and revel in it...maybe that's why Marvel brought Joss Whedon in in the first place?...I hope so.  If they get more directors like Joss Whedon, and maybe snag some accomplished cheese writers (Ben Edlund, I'm looking in your direction), then I have every hope for Marvel's cosmic scene on the big screen.

Embracing the cheese factor is something that Fox has YET to do with Fantasic Four, much to my dismay.

are non fanboys ready for this?!!  i think so, given the success of the Avengers, i think this could be a big hit. then again, it could just suck ass'. and all the people that had never heard of GOTG, will leave the theater scratching their heads and fanboys foaming at the mouth ready to cry up a  s.h.i.t storm.. guess we will find out when and if it gets made..

 I've loved all the marvel movies, can watch most of them easily again and again. Earths mightiest is an awesome animated series and both have got me reading the comics (digital download admittedly). Have had utmost faith in all the marvel movies since Thor showed they could do their more mythical characters justice. But in saying that I think they are making a huge mistake with this (Howard the duck mistake). If.they were doing it as a standalone movie aimed at kids, sure. But as a tie in to the rest of their movieverse is just a big mistake. I hope I am wrong but of the animated series the episode with the guardians was easily one of the weakest ones. And there.are so many characters that should have a movie first. I'm a white guy from oz and I was excited with the rumors not so long ago that the movie ws going to be a black panther. Wtf happened to that? Hope I'm wrong but I'm seeing marvels first stumble (guess it had to happen at some stage)

 PLEASE NOT VINNIES JONES... He was terrible as Juggernaut!

I never understood why Rocket Raccoon HAD to be English, I know his name was taken from a Beatles song (Rocky Raccoon) but that's hardly a good reason.

So unlike the Avengers cartoon/Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom if he's going to be English he should be from Liverpool not London...

But I still say he doesn't need to be British at all, he is after all from the Keystone Quadrant after all...
