We’re well aware of the Guardians of the Galaxy live action film that’s going to be hitting theaters in early August, but rumor has it that we may be seeing the Guardians make their small screen debut in their own animated series.
Nothing is official yet, but apparently, Marvel might take a break from its constant stream of Spider-Man animated shows, and instead go with a Guardians of the Galaxy series for their Disney XD programming. The decision shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise if they do go through with it, as it would probably be directly influenced by the live-action film’s success.
Honestly, this could be a great way to build the fan base for a possible GotG sequel, if and when they decide to go through with this series. With the Guardians of the Galaxy property being relatively unknown to the mainstream, I can’t think of a better opportunity for them to further familiarize fans with the franchise. Perhaps, in an unprecedented move, Marvel could use the animated series as a link to their cinematic universe versions of the characters to develop them leading up to the rumored Avengers–Guardians team up? I know I’d be down for that.
We’ll have more on this story as new info leaks out, but what do you think of a Guardians of the Galaxy animated show? Do you think it would work? Let us know!
