News concerning Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy film, set to be released on August 1, 2014, has been in abundance these past few weeks, first with the announcement that Chris Pratt (Zero Dark Thirty) will be playing the main character, Star-Lord, and now with updates on filming.
The film’s executive producer, Victoria Alonso, let slip in an interview with CinemaBlend that the film’s production has officially begun. Filming won’t start until June, but that hasn’t stopped the visual effects team from starting work on characters such as Rocket Raccoon and Groot, two of the film’s integral characters.
I’m extremely excited for this movie. It’s a welcome departure from everything else Marvel Studios has done to date, and is a chance to explore characters and ideas that would have otherwise been impossible. Plus, who doesn’t love a gun-toting raccoon?
So, what’s the verdict? Yay or nay for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie?
