Marvel Studios is Pushing Forward With an Out of This World Project

Last September with The Avengers movie already underway, Marvel revealed plans to unite another team on the big screen. But unlike Iron Man and The Hulk, these superheroes don’t consider the planet earth home sweet home. With the success of Thor, another intergalactic superhero, Marvel believes there’s room for some more outerspace action in Hollywood according to Kevin Feige, the chief of Marvel Studios. “There is an opportunity to do a big space epic, which Thor sort of hints at in the cosmic side of the universe, with characters in a property called Guardians of the Galaxy,” he told Entertainment Weekly last year. At that time, the company had already began working on the “Big Idea,” code word for the long slate of superhero films culminating in May’s mega hit The Avengers.  Gaurdians of the Galaxy will arrive on the heels of an entire sequence of Marvel productions, including Iron Man 3 and Thor 2, which are currently in the works. Captain America 2 is next in line and is scheduled for an April 2014 release date. As if the movie industry isn’t already saturdated with superheroes, Marvel has confirmed that they are coming out with three additional titles after Captain America 2, including Guardians, Avengers 2, and director Edgar Wright’s much anticipated Ant-Man.  Sounds like fanboys should rejoice, or cringe, at the fact that so many classic superheros will be brought to life over these next few years.
