Well this year brings us the film debut of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Are you excited for the film's August release? What about the cast? Did/do you read GotG in its native comic form? I know I'm excited for it.

Im stoked for this film. I had limited exposure to the older comics, but I've been reading the new bendis series since it's launch and it's got me really excited. They really brought in some big names so they're really gonna push this thing in the coming months.
Here's our first looks at them in the film for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. Rocket and Groot look good. I really thought that Drax's tattoos would look a little more defined but oh well. Right click, open image to see it bigger.

I've read every bit of GotG I can find so of all the films in production this is the one I'm really excited for. If they can nail all the personality's well it will be great. Chris Pratt is starlord from stuff I've seen of him. Vin diesal can't go too wrong with "I am groot" as I think it's more important to get great reactions from rocket raccoon so I think the pressure is on Bradley cooper. I don't see this as a problem for him as I love him in every role I've seen him in. Just hope he gets to say "ha murdered you!!" Heard good things about Batista and Zoe Saldana was great blue so no reason to think she won't be good green :-) just so excited for any sort of trailer!!!!! Aaaaahhhhhhhhh
I knew almost nothing about GotG before I saw the trailer at the end of Thor 2. I decided that I needed to read some of the books so that the film would make sense. It's become one of if not my favorite book. I went from "whatever, I guess I'll probably check it out" to "OMG i can't wait for this to come out!!"
I don't know much about the cast but if they get it even close to the book I'll be way excited! I basically need to see Rocket talking smack and blasting aliens while Groot smashes through a steel wall exclaiming "I am Groot!"
Always be yourself. Unless you can be Batman, then always be Batman.

I'm beyond pumped for this movie. Marvel seems to be doing everything right, from the stills and concept art we've seen, to the super inspired casting (especially Chris Pratt as Starlord), to Gunn directing. It's such a risky idea, but if it's done well, I think it could be so good for Marvel Studios in the long run. Between this and Cap 2, I'm more excited for Marvel movies than ever before, and that's saying a lot.

Personally I'm really looking forward to this movie. I think the mass list of stars on cast will give the movie appeal to the average movie fan that has been invested in the other Marvel movies.
He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.
