We’re excited by any movie with Marvel in the DNA right now, but this one is a hard sell… even to us
Guardians of the Galaxy now has a new script writer as the slew of marvel movies gets bigger and bigger. Despite having no scripts made yet, three of them did make the blacklist from which he was picked and let’s be clear, Marvel doesn’t pick just anyone to tackle their scripts especially being the hottest property right now.
The scriptwriter is called Chris McCoy and he’s picking up from a script by Nicole Perlman. McCoy’s scripts apparently have a really quirky comedic edge which in Avengers was a key element. Given the range of characters in the Guardians team, he may be just the man to do it.
The Hollywood Reporter has further details on the plot which, as we guessed a while back, looks like it’ll tie into Thanos’ appearance at the end of The Avengers/Avengers Assemble: “the movie’s lineup will include Drax the Destroyer, a human resurrected as a green warrior with the sole purpose of killing Thanos (the villain in the Avengers final-scene tease); Groot, a giant tree-man; Star-Lord, a gun-toting half-human/half-alien intergalactic vigilante; Rocket Raccoon, a genetically engineered animal with a knack for guns and explosives; and Gamora, the last survivor of her species who was saved by Thanos to be his assassin but now battles him.”
We’re mindly concerned as to how Rocket Raccoon will fit into the Marvel movie universe, but at the same time, we’d be liars if we said we weren’t excited…
