Guardians Of The Galaxy news round-up
Trailer news, Stan Lee and a publicity push around the corner: it's our Guardians Of The Galaxy round-up...
Right: let's pull together a few things about Marvel's upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy.
A second trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set to be released for Superbowl weekend in the US, allowing us to see yet more footage of Marvel Studios' first 2014 release. Things have been much quieter with regards the second, though. Notwithstanding the mid-end credits sequence of Thor: The Dark World, there's been very little seen or heard of Guardians Of The Galaxy. That, however, is about to change.
It's been revealed that the first footage from the film itself will also get an outing in a Superbowl spot. Whether it'll be the first trailer or just a tease remains to be seen, but on February 2nd, it now seems certain we'll be getting something.
Elsewhere in Guardians Of The Galaxy news, Stan Lee has confirmed that he won't have his now-traditional cameo in the film. Talking to Dweebcast, Lee said that "that's the one group I didn't create. I didn't write Guardians Of The Galaxy. I'm not even sure who they all are. I can't wait to see the movie".
Given that the film is a relatively unknown entity to a large proportion of the cinemagoing audience, Marvel's got a job on its hands to sell this one. And Chris Pratt has confirmed that a sizeable push is on the cards. "I feel like it really hasn't even started yet because we've got a big publicity push that's gonna happen when we're gonna fly around the world and introduce the movie to people who are watching it", he told MTV. "So that's gonna be really exciting and new for me to do something like that on a grand scale". We wonder if he'll toddle along to the four-screen in Quinton for a quick Q&A?
The film is scheduled for release on August 1st.
