Once upon a time, there were two comic book companies who turned their comic properties into movies. Both had stables of well-known and much-loved characters, and both had giant reserves of creative talent at the ready to do their bidding.
One company was called D.*. Comics (name partially obscured to protect their identity), and they decided to take a character that was known by most of the planet and attempt to make a fast-paced space adventure to launch a series of movies. The other, called Marvel (name not hidden because they don’t need to hide in shame), decided to make a space adventure movie as well, but based it on a series of characters not well known outside of your typical comic shop patron.
Now the trailer for GOTG is out there and I couldn't be more excited.
