Marvel’s big “surprise” for Comic Con this year was to bring together most of the cast for Guardians of the Galaxy.  They brought Chris Pratt,  Zoe SaldanaDave BautistaMichael RookerBenicio Del ToroLee Pace, and Karen Gillan.  Along with director James Gunn and Marvel Cinema’s visionary and president Kevin Feige.  Check out the video of the conference below.

Some of the highlights;

  • Michael Rooker is as cooky and crazy off screen as you would imagine.  He made jokes at the expense of everyone on the panel.
  • James Gunn stated that the film was about all these people who can’t get along coming together to save the universe.
  • Thanos will be what connects the Marvel films of the current timeline (Avengers, Iron Man, etc.) with the future timeline that Guardians takes place in.
  • Benecio del Toro was the first person on his block to own an alligator.
  • They are about 15% into production, but everything is going well so far.
  • James Gun says the film has a lot of his personal touches in it, and that Marvel has really wanted him to punch up the “James Gunn-ness” of the film.

Guardians of the Galaxy opens August 1, 2014.
