There are some movies that fans just can’t ever get enough of, and that’s definitely true for action films. Who doesn’t want to see their favorite heroes come to life in all their action-packed, computer-generated, out-of-this-world glory?
Guardians Of The Galaxy was especially endearing among comic enthusiasts for its rather obscure backstory and characters compared to highly touted mega-hits like Avengers and Transformers. But the film appealed to all types of moviegoers as well, and naturally, there’s no shortage of fans who want to know more about it.
Check out these 38 facts that no Guardians fan will want to miss; #20 even reveals a special announcement!
It’s important to remember that these original Guardians of the Galaxy comics, as created by writer Arnold Drake and artist Gene Colan, would be almost completely unrecognizable to most people who are only familiar with the films. That’s because the only character from the original Guardians of the Galaxy team who was featured onscreen was Yondu!
The films are inspired far more heavily by the version of the team created by writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning in 2008, featuring Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and even Adam Warlock, whom director James Gunn has said will be featured in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3.
