Does Marvel have a Guardians of the Galaxy animated series in the works?

July 10th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

It sounds a lot like Marvel could be in the process of developing an animated series based onGuardians of the Galaxy. The possibility was hinted at by Marvel comics editor Steve Wacker. Apparently, it was discussed at a “writing summit” for Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man. Here’s what he said:

“Now, look, I can’t officially confirm that we spent a LOT of time talking about the Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon but wouldn’t that HYPOTHETICALLY… be amazing?”

Which means it totally happened, obviously. If they do decide to Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, it would be a nice counterpart to the live-action version and could serve to flesh out the story.

The James Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy film hits theaters on August 1, 2014.

What do you think of an animated series to go along with it?

The Guardians have appeared in animation before in an episode of Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and will soon be making an appearance in Ultimate Spider-Man.
