Inhumans & Guardians Of The Galaxy Next For Marvel Studios?
EW's recent issue includes confirmation of sorts that Inhumans and Guardians Of The Galaxy are also in development. Previously the two projects had been rumored but Marvel's Kevin Feige confirms them to the magazine. TwitchFilm provided the first news about Guardians and BadassDigest picked up the news on Inhumans.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: Created in 1969, the comic was originally set in the 31st century. The relaunch in 2008 is seemly a better group including better costume/character designs, powers, along with stronger lineup adding Adam Warlock and Quasar.
Star-Lord decides to form a team of interstellar heroes that will be proactive in protecting the galaxy, rather than reacting to crises as they happen. To this end, he recruits Adam Warlock, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Phyla-Vell (the new Quasar), Rocket Raccoon, and Groot, with Mantis as support staff. On the recommendation of ally Nova, the group establishes a base of operations at the space station Knowhere, which possesses a teleportation system with near-universal range. An intelligent, super-powered dog called Cosmo acts as Knowhere’s chief of security and works closely with the new team. After an initial clash with the revitalised Universal Church of Truth, the team’s investigation of a mass of “Limbo ice” reveals a semi-amnesiac man who identifies himself as Vance Astro – Major Victory of the original Guardians of the Galaxy. Astro’s declaration inspires the as-yet-unnamed team to adopt the “Guardians of the Galaxy” name for their own.
