Guardians of the Galaxy movie rumours have re-emerged following reports that Marvel Entertainment has filed 11 trademarks related to the series.
Bleeding Cool claims that the company has registered applications for branded jewellery, drinks, food, furniture, cosmetics, computer games, fabrics, paper goods and entertainment services.
Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige previously confirmed that a movie based on Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning’s version of the cosmic team is under consideration.
“It’s more Star-Lord and Drax and Gamora, and less Vance Astro and that team,” he said at a press junket for the Avengers movie.
“We are very excited about bringing things like that, maybe things exactly like that, to the screen.
“When you tell people, ‘You know what would be really cool? This movie, and there’s a raccoon – Rocket Raccoon – and there’s a tree – Groot’. And they go, ‘What?’ And people like you know what it is, and get excited. And the majority of people go, ‘Did you say a raccoon and a tree?’ ‘Oh yeah, they’re going to steal the whole movie. They’re hilarious’. ‘Okay, I’ll believe it when I see it’. I like that.”
The original Guardians of the Galaxy were introduced in 1969 as the heroes of an alternate timeline set in the distant future. The new version of the team span out of the ‘Annihilation: Conquest’ storyline.
