I love GotG and it's great we are going to have a 3rd movie but MARVEL PLEASE CONFIRM DOCTOR STRANGE SEQUEL, DIDN,T YOU SEE THE BOX OFFICE? EVERYONE WOULD LOVE A SEQUEL AND EVERYONE WOULD GO TO SEE IT idk it just sounds logic to ANNOUNCE A SEQUEL AFTER THE SUCCESS OF THE MOVIE just saying
I’m a little late to jump on the bandwagon, but Guardians of the Galaxy was pretty awesome, so naturally I had to crochet my favorite characters. Groot was fun to make, his details were all hand-sewn in. Rocket’s little tufts of hair were brushed out to be furry. This duo is comfortably sitting on my bookshelf next to my Star-Lord Halloween costume. :)
I hate when people try and use the excuse that GOTG had unknown characters and that’s why it didn’t have a strong start.
First of all, EVERY non-superheromovie has unknown characters, and yet people turn up to see it don’t they? They go to see it if they like the premise, the trailers etc. Superhero movies are no different, people don’t NEED to know the characters before going in, the marketing just has to appeal to them.
Secondly, the movie starred Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, and Karen Gillan. All very well-known in one way or another. Studios love to hire big names because then the movie gets a huge audience.
So whatever excuse you have to try and destroy the fact that SuSq beat GOTG’s record at the box office, it’s completely invalid. Most of the characters in SuSq are unknown (the well-only known ones are harley, waller, joker, and deadshot) and some of these actors are not that well known, with one being straight up completely brand new to Hollywood.
