I could really go for an obscure fire fly, semi self aware action comedy drama!

I'm entirely unfamiliar with the comic on which this is based, but I have to say I find it hilarious that DC seems unwilling to test the commercial prospects of a Wonder Woman movie while Marvel is quite happy to go ahead with one co-starring a raccoon.

Nova Corps as punch-clock beat cops?

Genius.

This could be the next Fifth Element. I'll be lining up on opening night for this.

EDIT: Also, Benicio del Toro as The Collector Space Mugatu? Make that two tickets!

Correction, a raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper in addition to a tree-man voiced by Vin Diesel. :lol:

I've never read comic books, but the trailer pretty much sold me on seeing this in theaters.

As for DC, I would understand if they didn't want to do Wonder Woman because they were afraid that they would screw her up, but that's nonsense considering the success of the DC animated success with her, IMO. Then again, DC properties haven't gotten great treatment lately.
Save yourself the trouble and don't ask why the TV remote is in the refrigerator.

Other than on TV (thank you the CW), because Arrow is fantastic.

Quietly hopeful for The Flash.

Drax is a strange character. In the predominant version of his story, Thanos received a prophecy he would be killed by Arthur Douglas. He acts pre-emptively to kill douglas and his family. Kronos resurrects him as an avatar "Drax, The Destoryer" who's fate and sole purpose is to combat and eventually kill Thanos. Drax can't really die... He's hellboy/hulk/wolverine all in one, he doesn't have the power of flight or any mental powers(telepathy, etc.) so he slowly trods across the galaxy the old school way on his mission to fulfill his purpose and slay the Mad Titan.

The rest of the Guardians are pretty pedestrian compared to him, lol.
