The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Movie Plot Revealed

The logline for the film has hit the web and gives us a clearer idea of what to expect in Marvel's upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy' film.

It seems the plot for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy may have been revealed -- or at least hinted at. The log line for the upcoming Marvel movie was displayed on Its On The Grid, a database dedicated to "cataloging information on the feature film development business." The entry for the Guardians of the Galaxy film reveals that the movie may be focusing on the space adventures of a U.S. pilot and a few of his friends.

About a U.S. pilot who ends up in space in the middle of a universal conflict and goes on the run with futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants.

So what U.S. pilot could they be referring to? Well, it could be a couple of different characters. Some question whether it is Vance Astro or his future counterpart, Major Victory, who was in the original team, which, we admit, would be pretty cool. However, as cool as the idea might seem, he wasn't a character that appeared in the Guardians of the Galaxy poster we saw premiere at Comic-Con as the movie is clearly focusing on the current incarnation.

The poster did, however, feature another pilot: Starlord; so there's a good chance that the log line could be referring to him. Starlord's real name is Peter Jason Quill, and in the comics he is a human-alien cyborg and a current member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Whether the film adaptation will stay true to the comic book character's origins remains to be seen, but what we do know is that he won't be alone. Starlord will be joined by Rocket Raccoon, Drax the Destroyer and Gamora, and they'll be embarking on a sic-fi, action adventure.

What do you think of the news? Are you looking forward to seeing these characters make it to the big screen? Are you glad that Starlord will be in the film, or would you rather Vance Astro?
