At the “Comic” Movies

The Avengers was a big success for Marvel and Disney so expect to see a whole lot more Hero movies coming your way. One of them was just announced during this years San Diego Comic Con. The long rumored Guardians of the Galaxy is now official. A little less known Marvel comic with some obscure characters like Rocket Raccoon. Other characters that will be portrait in the movie are Drax, Groot, Star-Lord and Gamora. For those collecting comics, go and buy the Guardians of the Galaxy books now as they will go up in value just like the books with Thanos did after the Avengers movie came out.

Other movies that where mentioned where a whole bunch of sequels. Captain America: Winter Soldier (Scheduled for April 4, 2012) and Thor: The Dark World (Scheduled for November 8, 2013). The Captain America movie has the subtitle Winter Soldier and this appears to confirm that the story from the comic with the same title will be used. In this story Bucky is alive and operates as a brainwashed Soviet Assassin.

Also discussed during the San Diego Comic Con was the Ant-Man movie. This project has been in development for a while but Director/Screenwriter Edgar Wright said that they shot some test footage. This could take the movie to the next level.

Some might think this is a strange choice but Ant-Man is a founding Avengers member and does have a lot of comic fans. When this movie project goes ahead, and it sure looks like it, expect Ant-Man to appear in the next Avengers movie. This is only an assumption, but it would make sense.
