It seems odd to me, since the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, we’ve seen a total re-launch of the comic book series, twice in recent memory since visually it diverged so it matched the style of the movie.
With the Marvel continuity reboot in the works, it should borrow even more for the hit from last summer just to keep things in synch.
So just in case, who are the Guardians of the Galaxy? Basically, they’re the Galatic Avengers. A bunch of rag tags who have teamed to protect the universe, they also have a talking raccoon.
It seems like a long time ago that we first reported on the animated series which was debuted at a convention,it’s an addition to Disney’s growing animated universe and what would seem to be a welcome addition to the Saturday morning line-up.
Disney has released a poster unveiling the new animated series that’ll be broadcast on Disney XD on September 26 this year.
The poster, of course shows the core five members of the movie team; Star-Lord, Groot, Rocket Racoon, Drax the Destroyer, and Gamora.
An odd thing is this, Star-Lord appears on the front cover of the Guardians reboot comic, but appears it’s a girl under the mask, do we think that’ll make it into the movies? I don’t know. Since Venom has been kicking around with them, could that serve as a link to the animated Ultimate Spider-man cartoon. Or maybe Venom is just to busy being Marvel’s Green Lantern.
With the name of the predictable sequel being announced, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. It’s probably about time that I got round to watching my DVD copy isn’t it?
