Drew Pearce, the writer behind Iron Man 3, recently had only good things to say about Marvel Studios.

While that is really no wonder as the movie stands at just over $1.2 billion at the box office, Pearce does offer up the Guardians of the Galaxy movie directed by James Gunn is coming along really well (via SciFiNow). 

This next phase has such a good bunch of directors, from the Russos, who by all accounts have knocked it out the park with Captain America 2 – I’ve seldom heard buzz from the editing room as good as that movie. Avengers 2 will be Joss Whedon’s baby, and reaction to James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy has been brilliant. Even after the tough journey of two and half years making Iron Man 3 as good as it can be, I don’t just have respect for Marvel as unit; I’m honored for my time there, and I’m constantly talking to them about what we do next. 

Speaking of coming along, James Gunn recently debuted the first Guardians of the Galaxy footage at Comic-Con after only 12 days of filming which has been well-received by the fans. 

We've recently also seen Gunn filming in the UK with a first look at Michael Rooker as Yondu revealing a spaceship crash landing scene involving aliens and dead bodies.

The "Guardians of the Galaxy movie" has an August 1, 2014 release directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer and Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Lee Pace as Ronan, Djimon Hounsu as Korath the Pursuer, with John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, Glen Close as Nova Prime, and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.
