Marvel to Announce New Movie Franchise at SDCC, but it’s Not What You Were Thinking it Would Be!

It’s reported that at San Diego Comic Con, Marvel will announce that following Iron Man 3, Thor 2, and Captain America 2, that the next big Marvel movie franchise would be Guardians of the Galaxy!?! Most were surprised by the choice with most of the underground buzz focusing on either a Black Panther or Dr. Strange movie. Now it’s possible those are still in the works, but if you think about it, this makes much more sense. Why you ask? Because of the fact they set up Thanos as the next big villain at the end of The Avengers. With a cosmic level baddie like that, who ya gonna call? The Ghostbusters wouldn’t stand much of a chance against Thanos, but give Drax the Destroyer a crack at it and you’re odds go up.


The assumption is he’ll be on the roster and they’ll be using the more recent incarnation of the team with Starlord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, and Drax with possibly some others mixed in. Could Nova be thrown in that line up as well? It’s possible, but nothing is confirmed yet. This is really exciting for me personally, as I loved the recent Guardians of the Galaxy series that came out! I even picked it up in the original run as a kid with Major Vance Astro, Starhawk, Nikki, Martinex, Yondu, Aleta, and Charlie 27!  This is going to work out well with their history not only with cosmic level threats and Thanos particularly, but with the Avengers. They made several appearances in Avengers comics before they had their own title, and their roots run deep with Avenger history. This movie should not only be great standing on its own, but tie in to The Avengers 2 nicely! CAN’T WAIT! But I have to….
