Marvel is famous for having their superhero characters cross over in their films, but Joss Whedon who’s working on bringing us THE AVENGERS 2, said that, via Bleeding Cool, the characters in James Gunn’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, which is filing at UK’s Shepperton Studios, won’t show up in THE AVENGERS 2…
“We’re following Guardians at Shepperton, but we won’t be swapping cast members. Every movie is its own thing, and has to be.”
“unless I take a lot of peyote and write a very different draft… and I’m not ruling that out!”
Production starts in the U.K. this year.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill a.k.a Star-Lord and Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer.
Zoe Saldana as Gamora
Michael Rooker as Yondu, a founding member of the original GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Also starring Ophelia Lovibond
Lee Pace as the villain
John C. Reilly may get to play Rhomann Dey, a non-human equivalent of Agent Coulson. He’s basically a liaison between S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Guardians.
Glenn Close plays a leader of intergalactic Nova Corps
The movie features an unlikely cast of characters who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions.
In the current plot, U.S. pilot Quill ends up in space in the midst of a conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons that have with them something everyone is after.
Some of the characters include giant tree-man named Groot, Genetically-engineered and guns/explosives expert Rocket Raccoon, and Gamora.
