It's a great time to be part of the Guardians of the Galaxy roster! The first movie has yet to open, but Marvel apparently has so much faith in the team that director James Gunn will be back for more! According to the Wrap, Gunn is slated to write and direct the sci-fi group's sequel. Additionally, it was announced at Marvel's "Animation Presents!" San Diego Comic-Con panel that an animated series featuring the team is heading to Disney XD! The panel also confirmed the cosmic heroes are set to appear in the other Marvel animated shows.

It's not out yet, but it currently has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes -- there's 25 reviews, too.

Great marketing strategy. Marvel truly can push lesser known characters into the mainstream eye, bravo Marvel.

I'll be checking out that animated series for sure. But I still can't help but wonder how much of this is possible because Disney owns Marvel now? O.o

@k4tzm4n: Not sure in a business standpoint why they would make something without seeing how much success is brought by it if any.

Kinda seems like what DC did with the Green Lantern Franchise.

@thecheesestabber: that screenshot was from the ultimate spiderman show, where they kept groot as a tiny twig in a pot as a running joke until the end. If you want to see a true groot performance, check out the avengers assemble and avengers earth's mightiest heroes versions

And here I thought I couldn't possibly be more excited for this movie than I already am. August 1st can't come soon enough.

Glad to see my Rocket Raccoon series one issue 2 will be going up in value. Bought it for a dollar at a garage sale, and it already went up from fifteen dollars to twenty dollars. I was thinking this might be the peak of rocket's popularity, but now it seems I should wait a few years.

If this show is in anyway linked to the ultimate Spider-Man/ agents of smash/ avengers assemble universe then I'm not going anywhere near this. Also if Jeph Loeb has anything to do with the show I'm also done, I'm so sick of the guy destroying cartoons and then arguing that older comic readers shouldn't be watching them because there meant for kids...

See Earth's Mightiest Heroes had a Guardians team that could have been pretty cool for a TV Show. We didn't learn much about them and there was a sense of mystery to them.

With this team I feel like they're not going to do anything interesting, new or relevant with the characters. For all I know Gamora and Drax will be fighting over who gets the Oatmeal cookie... and you just know they're going to use Galactus again... like the other three series have already.

Well, I was pretty excited until I heard this was coming to Disney XD.

Considering how unfaithful Ultimate Spider-man is and whatever Hulk: and the Agents of SMASH is... I don't have much faith in the animated series.

The movie on the other hand is getting rave reviews everywhere. Metacritic is the only place I've seen where it was rated at 80 or below.

@hortondrawsawho: For example. Ultimate Spider-Man. What have they done for the character that's actually kinda cool and new? ...nothing. Avengers Assemble? ...the Falcon's on the team? Hulk and the Agents of... "sigh" SMASH? They made the Leader an idiot who's watched too many cartoons designed for 3 year olds. He has a team called the Agents of CRASH... goddamn it.

Yet Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroe's was so well done that marvel canned it ,I'll give a GOTG cartoon a try but if its bad i won't watch it.

We'll these shows also put in characters that aren't exactly well known to non-comic book fans, plus they're targeted at kids.

@feartheliving: You mean... an alternate version of SPIDER-MAN... and HAWKEYE. It doesn't really matter if they're alternate versions of a character. They're still related to characters who are getting movies pretty soon.

I want this to be good, but with Jeph Loeb and his belief that "kids aren't smart enough to appreciate quality storytelling", I doubt it.

I hope everyone realizes Marvel/Disney animated shows are not created or marketed for current comic readers. They are for the 5-10 year olds. Guess what? That's perfectly fine. They are meant as an introduction to these characters, which is good because comics for this age group are pretty much non-existent at this point.

Avengers: EMH is the best animated series to come out of Marvel Animation since the X-Men and Spider-Man TV Series in the 90s (Spectacular Spider-Man and Wolverine and the X-Men were also good, but sadly they were cancelled before their time). Avengers Assemble won't come anywhere near that.

With that being said, the GotG episodes of USM and AA were great and I'm looking forward to this spin-off. I very much dislike the fact that I've enjoyed watching Assemble, but there are some really good parts of the series (same with USM). They aren't the train wreck I expected them to be, but they aren't the best of the best either.

Let's hope that GotG can prove to be better than the other two series out currently (haven't watched SMASH yet)

I hate that excuse. Most of the older comic cartoons were made for kids and adults alike, and they were ACTUALLY GOOD and not this crap Marvel is putting out. (DC also with Teen Titans GO)
