[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1391:]]We get an update on the Guardians of the Galaxy movie from Marvel Studios President and Producer Kevin Feige at a recent press junket for The Avengers.
Feige mentioned what new movies were next in line for Marvel with Ant-Man, Dr. Strange, The Inhumans, and The Guardians of the Galaxy.
CraveOnline immediately picked up on the Guardians, and was excited to blurt out "Rocket Raccoon!"
To which Feige replied:
[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1392:]]"We are very excited about bringing things like that, maybe things exactly like that, to the screen. [...] When you tell people, you know what would be really cool? This movie, and there's a raccoon, and there's a tree... And they go, 'What?' And people like you know what it is, and get excited. And the majority of people go, 'Did you say a raccoon and a tree?' 'Oh yeah, they're going to steal the whole movie. They're hilarious.' 'Okay, I'll believe it when I see it.' I like that."
When further pressed about which team would be featured in the Guardians - DnA's recent version or the original members - Feige said the former.
"Yeah. It's more Star-Lord and Drax and Gamora, and less Vance Astro and that team."
No release date has been announced for the movie as of yet, but we'll be sure to keep you updated!
