Humorous 'Guardians' Set Marvel on New Path for Superhero Movies

15 May, 2017, 00:43 | Author: Ruben Patrick

I was excited for "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" and fortunately the film exceeded my expectations. We admire their commitment to the characters, even if Rocket and Groot's costumes weren't updated for the sequel! But just because "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" isn't quite as good as the original, doesn't mean it's a failure. Globally, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has already passed the lifetime totals of The Incredible Hulk ($263M), Captain America: The First Avenger ($371M), Thor ($449M), Ant-Man ($519M), Iron Man ($585M) and Iron Man 2 ($624M). And with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 we also get an Awesome Mix Vol. 2!

Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Groot (the voice of Vin Diesel) and Rocket (the voice of Bradley Cooper) are all back. "The difference between this and the first "Guardians" film", Gunn says, "is that on the first film, I might have [conceded] that one change". The film develops each character even further, so be sure to pay attention to the challenges each character must face, either externally or within themselves.

So news that Grandmaster may make an appearance in the Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: Breakout! theme park attraction is surprising, but not unexpected. Baby Groot is ridiculously adorable. The reason why Peter did not return to planet Earth is because he would not have been able to put his feet back in the knowledge that his mother was no longer there to greet him. We're a little disappointed that Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain" didn't make the cut, and we were also hoping to hear "Guardians Inferno" get the a capella treatment as well. Gamora is a green-skinned assassin who is not like other female superheroes.

George Clooney's 1997 "Batman & Robin", which featured goofy jokes, was savaged by critics and was one of the worst-performing superhero films, grossing $238 million worldwide according to As the Guardians travel throughout the universe, the film gives Marvel fans a look at famous races of aliens and beings from the comics. The film has perhaps the largest amount of character development ever seen in a Marvel film. They are quickly diverted to Ego's planet, where Quill finds out more about his celestial origins. Extremely simplistic in its approach, but driven by fantastic characters and how they interact with one another. Nebula needs redemption too, she was little more than a glowering villain in the first movie.

The most important, primary relationship in both Guardians of the Galaxy movies is really his relationship to Meredith Quill, and, of course, we have it revealed that the secondary relationship is really his relationship with Yondu.
