It's been known for quite a long time that Marvel has pencilled in two release dates for movies in 2014. One of them is Captain America 2, but it hasn't been know what the other is. There's been speculation it'll be a Black Panther film, while some have side it's likely to be Guardians Of The Galaxy. Now Latino Review and Variety say it's going to be the latter, with the official announcement likely to come at Comic-Con.
It's suggested the film will tie into the Marvel movie universe, and that that Thanos, who was revealed in the end credits of The Avengers, will be in the movie and that it will set up the events of The Avengers 2. It's also said that the project will take its inspiration from the 2010 six-issue arc known as The Thanos Imperative, and will include the character Nova, who isn't traditionally known as one of the members of the Guardians.
Like The Avengers, Guardians Of The Galaxy is a superhero team, largely made up of lesser know characters such as Adam Warlock, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Phyla-Vell, Rocket Raccoon and Groot. It's not known exactly which characters will feature. Expect more news soon. Assuming the info is correct, it'll hit cinemas May 2014.
