BOY MEETS WORLD’s Will Friedle has been tapped to lend his voice to Star-Lord in the upcoming Marvel animated series GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY on Disney X D.
Chris Pratt personified Peter Quill’s nom de crime in last summer’s live-action blockbuster Marvel movie, and will reprise the role in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but not in the animated series.
Friedle will be joined by Kevin Michael Richardson as the voice of Groot, Trevor Devall as the voice of Rocket Raccoon, Vanessa Marshall as Gamora, David Sobolov as Drax, and James Arnold Taylor will voice two characters: Yondu and Cosmo.
Even though the folks at Screen Junkies admit, “We’re really reaching here, this was a fun movie,” this Honest Trailer does a pretty good job making fun of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, he year’s top-grossing movie.
Sure, most of the jabs rely on the relative obscurity of the characters, but it’s still fun!
“I am Groot!”
In this five-minute video clip, we get a taste of how the members of the Guardians of the Galaxy work together, and the verdict is: not well.
I really like Chris Pratt‘s version of Peter Quill/Star-Lord, and his devotion to his killer playlist.
Does the universe stand a chance if these guys are our last hope? We’ll find out Aug. 1.
Instead of making a plan, the Guardians pick a fight. With each other.
It’s not long now until the Aug. 1 opening.
Yep, another day. another Guardians of the Galaxy trailer (or so it seems). This one focuses on the comedic potential of Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) and his peculiar speech pattern.
Aug. 1 is not far away now…
The second official trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. ‘Nuff said.
Because I’m having a hard time resisting anything to do with James Gunn‘s upcoming adaptation of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, here are three new images from what promises to be a bat-shit crazy movie! (We should be so lucky!)
Here we see Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord wearing his mask and running on the set, plus Peter dealing with Gamora, as played by Zoe Saldana. And then there’s all the self-described Guardians in prison jumpsuits: Quill and Gamora flanking Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Drax the Destroyer, played by Dave Bautista.
Director Gunn recently doled out a bit of info about Peter Quill’s origin in the movie, as well as Gamora and Nebula:
“He was abducted from Earth (Missouri) at age eight and raised in a group of thieves and smugglers called the Ravagers. He’s good with the ladies and a little bit of a d**k and very lucky. Thanos slaughtered [Gamora’s] family and Nebula’s, then raised them together as siblings. They were bioengineered to become living weapons, so he’s really good at killing people.”
Let the GotG insanity begin on Aug. 1!
Marvel Studios released some interesting-looking concept art from its various Phase 2 projects, so I thought I’d share a few cool visuals.
Here are some images intended for Avengers: Age of Ultron, including the visuals for the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. The image of Hulk and Black Widow could easily be from The Avengers, so looks like director Joss Whedon is going for “more of the same.”
The Guardians of the Galaxy art continues to support the idea that Rocket Raccoon will be the breakout character. I’m more interested in Star-Lord’s mask — which I hope he will wear more than most other movie superheroes wear theirs.
At last, Rocket Raccoon of the Guardians of the Galaxy speaks!
In this short little introduction to the character, Rocket says a few lines, and Bradley Cooper is shown delivering his voice performance. Check it out.
So… that happened.
Marvel Studios released what it’s calling the first official photo of the title characters from James Gunn’s upcoming would-be summer blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy — and the (mostly) live-action image is almost identical to pre-production artwork that was released quite a while ago: The ragtag team captured by the interstellar police force, the Nova Corps.
The characters all look pretty good, and using the police lineup theme instantly makes one think of the classic caper movie The Usual Suspects, and suggests that these Guardians are supposed to be similarly likeable rogues. Only with a raccoon. And a tree.
I’m not happy that Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) isn’t wearing his Star-Lord uniform (any of the numerous versions would have done), but of course Gamora (Zoe Salanda) and Drax (Dave Bautista) could not wear their highly impractical comic book uniforms onscreen.
