Guardians of the Galaxy

This weekend you should be checking out Guardians of the Galaxy, because it's just awesome (and let us know what you think afterwards too). It's the last film to hit before Phase Two's of Marvel's cinematic universe concludes with The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it's been a long road to get here. At Marvel's Comic-Con panel last weekend, they wanted to remind everyone how they got here with a cool retrospective reel that starts with Iron Man back in 2007 and goes all the way through Guardians of the Galaxy today, finally revealing Josh Brolin as the villain Thanos, who is really going to shake things up. Watch below!

Here's the retrospective reel on Phase One & Two of their cinematic universe from Marvel:

And here's a high-resolution photo of Josh Brolin as Thanos from Guardians of the Galaxy:

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand. Marvel Studios releases the film on August 1st this week.

GOD it annoys me so much how they always blatantly ignore Ed Norton's Hulk in these retrospective things

at 3:05 there's a clip where he's jumping out of the walkway at the college. So it wasn't completely ignored. just mostly

As an Edward Norton fan, I wish things had turned out ok between him and Marvel, I enjoyed his take on Bruce Banner and would love to see him against the other avengers. But oh well, Ruffalo did a nice job.

my understanding is that Norton screwed himself with his demands and being a primadonna when talks came up about Avengers and plans for the future

I think Marvel's movies, although very cool, are a little overrated sometimes, but my god, seeing it all together like this, it's amazing, total geekgasm! There's no denying they did one hell of a job establishing their movie franchises and taking the superhero genre to the top

i think people's personal opinions being able to be arbitrarily shared is highly overrated...but eh that's just my opinion

That's a totally necessary comment. Feeling better about yourself buddy? Just chill, this is a blog about movies, sometimes people get to post their opinions.

I don't see the Hulk complaint? Clearly he is in the reel. How is he being ignored? He was in there plenty!

Thanos in The Avengers looked more like the real Thanos. This is just a total disappointment, he looks too human now. It's like they splashed light blue paint (Why is Thanos blue his purple color was perfect in The Avengers!) on Josh Brolin and told him your Thanos! Maybe Marvel thought the purple color on Thanos would be heavily connected to the gay community and people would think Thanos is gay. Josh Brolin is also a weak choice, I don't like his voice and am afraid his American accent at some point would be heavily infused in the character.

You're ignorance is astonishing.
