With less than two years to go before the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, I hope that the gang at Marvel is making some progress on the scripting front. But every great script starts with a logline, a simple statement that summarizes the plot, and gives you a hint of what to expect from the film.
So without further ado, here’s the logline for Guardians of the Galaxy:
“About a U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants.”
And no, that’s not the logline from Farscape I just posted by mistake. I’m guessing Star-Lord’s comic origin is being rejiggered slightly to fit the new storyline, which is okay. The Blade from the movie is very different from the Blade that first appeared in the Tomb of Dracula series in the 70s, after all. And what is this mysterious “something” that the Guardians have that “everyone” wants? My first guess would be “The Infinity Games” and “Thanos” but they were last sceen in Odin’s treasure room in Thor. Maybe it’s the Ultimate Nulifier, or is that still owned by Fox under their Fantastic Four deal?
Anyway, more news as it develops.
