When you look at the amazing talent involved in Guardians of the Galaxy, and you see the staggering list of actors who have roles in the film, it’s a real shock when you realize that two of Hollywood’s biggest names are merely voicing a raccoon and a tree.

And then in August, about five months from now, we get the next Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy, which is the start of a lengthy nine month wait until the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron. In other words, that’s a long time in our limited attention span age for more fun and adventures from our favorite Marvel heroes. So might the studio be considering it time to up their game, and try putting out three films per year? The boss of Marvel Studios teases the possibilities. (more…)

I’m fairly certain that Game of Thrones man-mountain Jason Mamoa’s pecks have their own SAG card, but the actor has revealed that he is, essentially, bored with the kind of roles that ask him to half disrobe and say few words.

In a new interview with Zap2It (and if you click that hyperlink, by golly, you can) Mamoa goes into detail about his push against typecasting and how it led to him turning down a chance to play Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy. (more…)

James Gunn has obliged in an interview today where he addressed a number of aspects concerning the highly-anticipated Marvel film that have come out of this first trailer. (more…)
