We've seen a few set images from Zack Snyder's BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, and yesterday one Twitter user posted a couple of new pics of wrecked Metropolis vehicles from the upcoming movie. I know, big surprise, right? Vehicles being destroyed in a comic book movie? I've never heard of such a thing!
Saw some other damage..
Despite its flawless superhero pedigree, there's always been apprehension about "Guardians of the Galaxy."
Since the president of Marvel Studios first teased the possibility of making a movie based on the comic book about a team of intergalactic do-gooders, the proposition has been called risky — by critics, by fans and by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige himself.
While the ensemble cosmic romp bears similarities to the superhero mash-up "The Avengers," which earned more than $1.5 billion worldwide, "Guardians" features more obscure characters from the Marvel mythos and — other than a prologue chronicling the moment Chris Pratt's young Peter Quill is plucked from Earth — is set entirely in space.
Unlike 2012's "Avengers," which relied on five decades of superhero history and five films to build up its team, Gunn was tasked with not only adapting a comic series that's only a few years old but also establishing comradery among a band of interstellar rebels that includes a lippy raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper and a burly alien portrayed by wrestler Dave Bautista.
The movie's only connections to Marvel's greater cinematic universe are a more detailed look at the all-powerful Infinity Stones, as well as appearances by Thanos, the ginormous alien baddie glimpsed at the end of "Avengers."
Gunn had to fight for the brief inclusion of the latter, who was originally envisioned as the film's main villain in a draft by co-writer Nicole Perlman.
Admittedly, Thanos was a giant pain in the (expletive) because I had to talk with ("Avengers" writer-director) Joss Whedon and those guys.

Hey folks, Harry here… I’m so completely distracted with GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY that it was way late till I even came out of my stupor of worshipping that fucking magnificent movie, that I realized… Oh shit, Monday night… THE COLUMN, so I have powered through on water and all the music of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY which kept the film dancing in my mind, even as I pondered so much more of cinema.
The last month of summer begins this weekend, giving us only a few more chances to get out of the doldrums that have plagued the box office for much of July with two movies that will try to turn things around. Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy, directed by James Gunn and with a wildly diverse cast, is going to be the big "must see" event of the weekend, leaving a lot of people wondering how much is possible for a Marvel movie with very little starpower and based on a lesser-known group of characters.
Over the weekend at SDCC Legendary announced plans for a new King Kong movie, and now Deadline is reporting the studio wants ATTACK THE BLOCK director Joe Cornish behind the camera for SKULL ISLAND. The site has learned Legendary has offered Cornish the directing job, however they don't know if he'll take it or not.
Joe Cornish hasn't directed a film since ATTACK THE BLOCK, but at one
