    This looks pretty awesome, even in a short clip. And Djimon Hounsou!!

    So excited!! :D

    Oh, I’m loving the look of the logo. :D And hey, even a teaser for a trailer is still new footage, and it looks good!

  • MarieMJS

    God I hope it will be awesome, I really want it to be, pulp sci fi is missing from our screens in a big way and too many recent attempts have been terrible, let’s hope this will be a good one.

  • Cellism

    I’m really interested in Gamora’s face in this trailer and all the previous press images. In the first press shot in the prison lineup she looked like Rihanna for some odd reason (Battleship flashback *shudders*) whereas in the above one she looks very unlike Saldana, through the use of prosthesis. This is reflected in the teaser as well by the looks of it.

    A really small thing but interesting given that it’s very easy to make all super heroines look identically fresh faced. (Especially since there’s not a history of Gamora in the comics looking particularly different in any way but if anyone can correct me on that please do.)

    CHRIS PRATT.

    NO SHIRT.

    /dies

  • Jodi

    KARNEN *pushes over a bookshelf*

  • Charlie

    hehehe so excited!

  • Cad Wallader

    I’m the first to be annoyed about a trailer teaser, but in cases like this, where the amount of details, photos, footage, et al. that have been shown in public is so tiny, I’LL TAKE ANYTHING.

  • Cad Wallader

    The thing that’s missing from Gamora and Drax’s designs it white, pupil-less eyes. It’s bizarre seeing them with human eyeballs, and it would have gone a long way toward establishing their alien-ness (further than the prostheses did, at any rate).

  • María

    Is it normal to be really looking forward to this movie when you know nothing about the comics? Because I am.

  • Calum Syers

    Pulp sci-fi and space exploration have been largely absent from cinema and television lately, so I’m really hoping this is a good’un. After watching the trailer, it makes me nostalgic for that brief, yet great, period in the late 80s-early 2000s when we got shows like Farscape, Babylon 5, Next Generation/Voyager/Deep Space 9/Enterprise and Firefly, so that’s a good sign. Lets hope when a full trailer comes out, that feeling won’t disappear.

    The wackiness of the premise and inventiveness of the alien design is really giving me a Farscape vibe. That’s a good thing.

  • JMH

    Yeah, but they’re a *pain* to act through. It’s why they tend to cover the faces of characters who have to do it.
    I guess they could’ve tried CGI, but it seems expensive and prone to failure to do it that way.
    I guess, as someone with stage acting experience, I’m just saying “Of all the things to decide to leave out, I get it.”

  • http://www.justplainsomething.com JustPlainSomething

    Can Charlie Hunnam and Chris Pratt just be an a movie together where they’re constantly shirtless? For reasons.

  • locuas

    let’s hope they can insert Muppets somewhere!

  • http://www.justplainsomething.com JustPlainSomething

    I just want it to be a fun space movie. And it seems to have all the potential to be just that if they can pull it off. Luckily, Marvel’s gotten a pretty good track record for pulling shit off in their movies and at this point I trust them enough to put my butt in the seat.

  • http://www.lawlessgentile.com/ Ali Miller

    And Star-Lord totally has a John Crichton vibe going on.

  • Cad Wallader

    I get it too, but when they’re already CG’ing a raccoon and tree-king into nearly every shot (and a spaceship or Celestial head into the others) I don’t get why they didn’t just hit the eyes up while they were there. This is a minor quibble. I’m more annoyed that Phyla and Moondragon aren’t there, but I’ve had time to get over it. Now I’m just psyched as fuck to see this incredibly unlikely movie finally see the light of day.

  • Calum Syers

    Absolutely. I’ve recently been re-watching Farscape, and Crichton’s hot-headedness and irrationality made him a truly compelling figure, which he balanced with humour. I think if anyone can match that, it’ll be Pratt.

  • Calum Syers

    Lets hope they can fit Dominar Rygel XVI cameos.

  • Alyson L

    And the full 2.5 trailer premier tonight!!! It looks like a beautiful movie.

  • Calum Syers

    “Oh no, Hunnam, looks like the fire has set your shirt alight. Which, as firefighters in this firefighter movie, is a constant hazard.”
    “Quick Pratt, I’ll take my shirt off, and you use yours to shirt to dampen my shirt fire. No one will question our legitimatise as firefighters.”

    *Audience drools onto the floor*

  • http://www.justplainsomething.com JustPlainSomething

    I sort of assumed they’d be playing characters and not themselves, but sure let’s go with that.

  • http://www.justplainsomething.com JustPlainSomething

    And Hemsworth comes in for absolutely no reason other than to also be shirtless and look handsome.

  • Calum Syers

    Maybe he’s the reason that Pratt and Hunnam survive the dreaded shirt fire. He rides in on a wave which douses their flames and makes them all sopping wet and glistening in the process.

  • Cad Wallader

    Marvel Studios has perfected the art of Beefcake Christophers. I just want Evans, Hemsworth and Pratt to all hug and whoops how did I get in there wow you guys your arms are like my damn legs this is nice

  • http://www.justplainsomething.com JustPlainSomething

    And then there’s a 10 minute scene of Rinko Kikuchi, Jaimie Alexander and Zoe Saldana fighting monsters while the men discuss how awesome women are.

  • Calum Syers

    I love this movie idea, and I think we’ve struck gold.

  • http://www.justplainsomething.com JustPlainSomething

    Clearly we should be making all the movies. All of them.

  • Calum Syers

    Sounds like a plan. I’ll begin casting the Captain Marvel movie, which would be my first priority after making Two Shirtless Firefighters and Hemsworth on a Wave.

  • http://www.justplainsomething.com JustPlainSomething

    Make sure to include Kamala as Ms. Marvel!

  • Calum Syers

    Will do, buddy.

    I’ve also seen a few people note that it’s also really difficult to convey emotion with blotted out eyes as well. i know that’s one of the excuses the various directors have given when people ask why there’s never been a Batman film where they’ve given him white eyes like in the comics (except for that one sequence in The Dark Knight).

    When you have chunks of your face already covered up, you need every advantage possible to help sell your performance.

  • Jamie Jeans

    So a walking, talking, gun totting Raccoon and a walking talking TREE in outer space… NO PROBLEM.

    But Wonder Woman?

    SO TRICKY!!!

    Hey DC and the WB, while I’ve got beef with Marvel over their continuous line up of white guys in their superhero movies, at least they’re making a Black Widow movie.

  • http://www.justplainsomething.com JustPlainSomething

    Of course! The best comic characters are at least somewhat accessible to people who are new to comics! The Marvel movies are actually pretty good about understanding that.

  • Anonymous

    Eh. I’m kind of underwhelmed that in a movie that’s supposed to be out-there and fantastical, they went with a generic white guy manchild as the main character, a la James T. Kirk (New Star Trek) or Hal Jordan in the GL film. Especially given that all their other leads are also white guys. And that the first shot of Gamora in the trailer was her being naked.

    (And I no longer have any interest whatsoever in a Black Widow movie, for reasons that have nothing to do with the character and everything to do with Scarlett Johannsen. I’ve been to Palestine; I’ve seen the damage done by the occupation; I’ve seen the country chopped into bantustans by settlements and by the wall; and I want nothing to do with anyone who supports that.

    Therefore I am not going to see The Winter Soldier, despite it looking pretty awesome.)

  • Jamie Jeans

    Yeah, and that’s one of the annoying things about the Marvel line up. While they’re not afraid to BE superhero movies, unlike DC’s movies, every movie so far has been straight white guy with women and POC in the supporting cast.

    And while they have been done well, the POC and women STILL only get supporting line ups.

    (And perfectly understandable. I have friends who won’t see the second Captain America movie because they’re tired of seeing nothing but straight white guys while Black Panther’s movie keeps on being hinted and teased but with nothing confirmed.)

  • Katie Frederick

    Don’t blame your friends at all for what they chose to watch or not, but a little sad that by missing Cap 2 they’ll miss Anthony Mackie as the Falcon, who looks to be amazing. (not a lead, I know, but a character worth watching imo)

  • Anonymous

    I think I blacked out for a few seconds. My poor circuits overheated.

  • Miss Cephalopod

    Squeee, my teacher designed that spaceship! I’m so stoked to see it in a screenshot!

  • Tallulah Alice Mae

    I’m actually starting to think it’ll completely brilliantly pull off its ridiculous (ly awesome) premise – ent man look awesome, as well as assassin lady thing I STILL KNOW NOTHING BUT I LOVE IT.

  • Adrian

    I just don’t understand that way of thinking. For Marvel to keep making films and to get to those third tier characters, these films have to be successful, so refusing to watch them doesn’t really help matters. If anything, it might make Marvel more interested in making another Iron Man film or something to make up for any financial losses.

    Call me naive but I don’t see it as Marvel having anything against those other characters but simply knowing that they have to keep these second tier characters successful so as to build the brand big enough that they can create films for the lesser known characters like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, etc.

    As a POC myself, I don’t take offense to any of this. I see this only as good business sense. The name of the game for me is patience and I have no doubt that we’re going to get Strange, Marvel, and Panther in the future, far sooner than we’ll get, in my opinion, a decent DC film from the likes of Snyder and Goyer. But hey, to each their own.

    Star Lord / Peter Quill first showed up in 1976 and was a half human / half alien ‘white guy’ in the comics. Marvel has already played around with swapping ‘skin color’ with Nick Fury and the rumor is Sony is having a POC for the Human Torch in the next FF movie. Do we HAVE to be politically correct to enjoy our childhood/teen year comic heroes?

  • Bailey Fields

    yeah but it’s always used against under represented groups in the end to ~prove~ that only straight white male protagonist sells. it’s a lose/lose situation. if almost 100 per cent of the content coming out is based around white people, and straight white dudes especially, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. it’s always going to be, ‘oh, women/POC don’t turn out to watch superhero movies?? See, this is why we stick with representing our target audience of straight white dudes’ or else ‘oh, so this movie starring a straight white dude is immensely popular and making us stacks of cash – better take the safe bet and make more just like this!’

    i think basically while the industry shuts POC out from assuming positions of power as the creative force behind the scenes, in positions of authority when it comes to choosing WHOSE story gets told from what point of view – until then, white dudes will run the show. i can’t ask people not represented to ~do their bit~ and go sit in a movie and enjoy the tiny scraps they get thrown in the hopes it’ll show the suits that we’ll give them our money to see ourselves representated.

  • María

    Yes they are!
    I’m confident about it. I knew nothing of Thor as a superhero before the movie but I loved the movie (and for a mythology-lover as me, thinking about Thor about an extraterrestrial superhero was difficult, I wasn’t an easy audience for that one), so I’m really looking forward to discover new characters and universes :)
    Also, I’ve seen the trailer (the real one) and it looks something like ‘Fifth Element’ meets ‘Firefly’ meets ‘Farscape’, and that’s something worth looking for.
