[[wysiwyg_imageupload:4126:]]While it could be pure coincidence, we like to think it's not.

Earlier, Guardians of the Galaxy movie director James Gunn favorited a tweet that mentioned keeping the Giffen-DnA costumes for the new movie.

New Guardians of the Galaxy comic book artist Steve McNiven said he's changing their costumes, changing Star-Lord's helmet, and that the WWI inspired costumes don't work for space adventures, though he admitted he's never read or worked on Marvel Cosmic before.

Now, we see that James Gunn posted the following cover to Annihilation: Conquest Star-Lord #1 by artist Nic Klein on Facebook (below).

Looks like Gunn is doing some homework.

Annihilation Conquest: Star-Lord #1

Annihilation: Conquest continues here - - with the war book that brings back cosmic cult faves from throughout the decades! Peter Quill is once again Star-Lord - - but what could possibly make him take on his former identity? And what brings together the motley crew that includes Bug, Captain Universe, Deathcry, Mantis, Groot and Rocket Raccoon? Grab your blaster and say your prayers as Keith Giffen (ANNIHILATION) and soon-to-be star Timothy Green (Rush City) deliver a sci-fi twist on Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos!
