A lot of people are focused on who’s going to be in front of the camera on the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, but what about who’s behind it.
Well one interesting name that’s come up is Brian Muir, and if you don’t know the name you’ve definitely seen his work. Muir is a sculptor who’s been used in several sci-fi and fantasy movies to create props and costumes. Amongst his credits are Darth Vader’s mask and chest plate in the original Star Wars, the Ark of the Covenant in Raiders of the Lost Ark, and the Space Jockey from Alien. He’s also worked on the Harry Potter films, The Dark Crystal, The Princess Bride and most recently, Snow White and the Huntsman. So this guy knows his $#!%.
Well, Bleeding Cool has learned that Muir has just been signed up to work on the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy. Muir was recently working on Thor: The Dark World, and was apparently asked to stick around for Guardians. Considering Muir’s background, Bleeding Cool tried to find out if Muir was working on Star Lord’s mask, but they were “given the run around.” But what they did learn, however was that “there’s something of a Star Wars vibe to the plans for Guardians.”
Well at least they went to the source to accomplish it.
More news as it develops.
