"Ooh Baby give me one more channcceeee!!!" We've been waiting a long time for this, and now it's here!

And the best part is, it's only $15.00! But hey, don't take my word for it, you can see a video of Groot in action below, and it should be released in stores around this Christmastime!

BOX OFFICE: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Passes MAN OF STEEL And Not Stopping Yet



Everyone considered James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy to be Marvel's first big risk, and likely flop. Well whoever said that was wrong, as the team just hit $294.6 million domestically, which passes up Zack Snyder's take on the blue boy scout Man of Steel (which made $291 million). Guardians also hit $586.2 million globally, which beats out Marvel's first film Iron Man, which made a global score of $585 million. So the thief, two thugs, the assassin and the maniac have got some big scores lately, and it doesn't look like they'll be stopping yet. So in the words of Rocket...


Drax Inspires Boy With Autism




Guardians of the Galaxy, whether it be the comic book or the movie, touches each and every one of us in some profound way - we wouldn't be on a fansite and wouldn't be calling ourselves Galaxians otherwise. But the little brother of 'merryweatherblue' on Tumblr found a special connection with Drax. Here's the Original Tumblr Post - This movie has exceeded so many expectations all the way around, but for it to reach someone so deeply and inspire like this, goes well above and beyond anything you could reasonably expect from a film. I am proud to have supported and pushed for this movie so fervently for the last year or more. Warms the cockles of me heart, it does.
Drop a comment and tell us how the Guardians have inspired you in any way, great or small!

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY = Top Grossing Movie Of 2014

"Guardians of the Galaxy will be the next John Carter flop."
"It's just too weird for general audiences."
"What is Marvel thinking?"

These were the sentiments that Galaxians everywhere had to endure while waiting for the Guardians of the Galaxy film. Now that our movie has been out for over a month, let's just say that things have changed drastically. Not only is Guardians currently #1 at the box office, with a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it's also the TOP GROSSING MOVIE OF 2014!!! Domestically, Guardians has made over $274 million, while raking in over $547 million worldwide! 

All we have to say to the doubters is..."Oh yeaaaah!"

James Gunn Reveals Stan Lee's Original Cameo In GOTG; Talks Ms. Marvel Joining The Team


Stan Lee made an appearance in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and while his appearance was short and not that funny, fans still enjoyed seeing the legend on screen again. In a recent interview with Collider, director James Gunn revealed Stan The Man's original cameo, which you can read below.

In the original version, Stan was meant to be part of 'The Collector's' collection along with Howard the Duck, Cosmo, a Chitauri soldier, and much more. The scene would have featured Vin Diesel's Groot browsing the specimens, where he would come across Lee, who would give an unloving finger to the talking tree.


Talks also (unsurprisingly) went to Carol Danvers, who is known as Ms./Captain Marvel in the comic books. Gunn stated that while she'll likely appear in the Marvel Universe sooner than later, he believes that there are plenty of other female roles to place into the team, and that he is very eager on bringing them to the Guardians universe ASAP.

MERCH: 'Howard The Duck' And 'Dancing Groot' Get Their Own Funko POP! Figures

SEQUEL SPECULATION: The Future Of The Nova Corps In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 (Editorial)


By Cameron Logan
A lot was said about the Nova Corps in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film. Many were concerned that the Nova Corps were basically "beat cops," and didn't have the superpowers that they have in the comics. However, the ending of the first film may have set the Nova Corps up for a more "powerful" role in the sequel. Hit the jump for my theories...
