Toy Fair 2014

Marvel unveiled their upcoming toy lines at the 2014 Toy Fair. Marvel looks to have their TV and movie properties well represented with action figures for the Avengers Assemble cartoon, Guardians of the Galaxy movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, although it looks like  the Cap and Spidey waves will have characters that won’t be in the movies, and the 3.25″ Marvel Universe line will continue.

There will also be some role-playing masks so that you can be Starlord or Rocket Raccoon. I’m looking forward to Halloween. I call Rocket Raccoon.

Unusual Suspects

Marvel has released an image of its Guardians of the Galaxy movie lineup of characters, although the team is not wearing their costumes. Zoe Saldana and Chris Pratt appear as Gamora and Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord. Bradley Cooper will lend his voice to Rocket Raccoon, WWE star Dave Bautista steps in as Drax the Destroyer, and Vin Diesel will voice Groot.

James Gunn is directing Guardians of the Galaxy, and Benicio Del Toro will return as The Collector, a character who made an appearance in the after credits scene at the end of Thor: The Dark World.

Disney also released a synopsis for the movie that is set to open on Aug. 1.

“An action-packed epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.”

In a recent interview with MTV News, Saldana gushed about Guardians of the Galaxy being “a new way to view superheroes.”

The actress offered that with this movie the cast is “. . . making heroes out of thieves, and they’re Robin Hoods. These characters are absolutely amazing, and they have a full-blown redemption.

“To be able sink your teeth into such meaty characters and to be part of such a story that is very unique and obviously has everything that I love,” she continued. “It has space. It has a kooky director. It literally has cojones. It has amazing actors that you would have never thought to put them together. Somehow, we’re all here giving 150 percent and loving the story that we’re doing.”

Karen Gillan appeared at a Marvel press panel at Comic-Con and revealed that she has been wearing a wig.

The actress, who gained popularity for playing Amy Pond on Dr. Who, shaved her head to play the role of Nebula in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

In the comic books Nebula leads a band of space pirates and mercenaries. At one point she seized control of the spaceship Sanctuary II, which previously was under the command of Thanos. Something that could play into a connection with the after credits reveal of the first Avengers movie.
