If mArvel uses this to segue into infinity gauntlet it's only because they botched silver surfer with a crap fantastic four movie. He's the real way to connect it with avengers.

    there are hundreds of similar and better green lantern stories than gotg but dc botched that chance.
    Iron Man was a weak property as well until RDJr came up with a performance of a lifetime. There is no reason Marvel can't make this work. Flawed characters are the best type, and that is the problem with DC's heroes. There are very few flaws in their heavy hitter lineup. I can't believe they are letting Snyder direct another movie. DC should just stick to the animated films. Those are awesome.

As long as Fox and Sony keep using the characters every few years, Marvel will never get them back.
    It's so bad that Universal bought the rights to all Marvel Characters for their theme parks and tried to sue Disney when they put a wrap advertising The Avengers movie on one of their monorails. Disney got off on a technicality though. The monorail with the wrap only used the resort loop to the Magic Kingdom (which never enters a "park"). Had they used the Epcot loop (which does cross into Epcot) Universal would have won.

    Cool infographic about who owns the right to whom...

    That's a pretty interesting graphic. I thought the funniest part was that at some point a studio executive thought snapping up the solo rights to Namor was a savvy business decision.

    I'd really love to see where all the rights land for the various villains and minor characters. That would really clear up a lot of questions people have about whether certain story arcs can or can't be recreated in the Marvel films/live-action shows.

    Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

    Great movie. Lots of fun. Probably my favorite Marvel movie so far. Definitely my favorite post-credits scene, as of yet.

    Entertaining movie gorgeous sure. Didn't try to take itself too seriously but wasn't a complete satire either. I am Groot!

    Bragging a bit, but semi-prophetic.

    Better than The Avengers


    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

    I know this will make me sound old and everything.... but I thought there was a LOT more violence than I was expecting. I'm not a prude (love the head-chopping scene in Fellowship of the Ring), but I didn't expect the often cruel and light manner in which death was treated in this movie. Small spoiler, but there is a scene where one character kills about a dozen enemies and then turns and smiles at the camera in a kind of "well aren't I cute" kind of manner which I thought was in poor taste.

    Overall I really enjoyed the movie. But I would not take kids under 13 personally.
