GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Release Date Pushed Back Nearly Three Months?
Disney has apparently pushed back the release date for Marvel Studios' second 2014 movie from May to August; the film which is said to be for Guardians of the Galaxy. Check it out!
Only days after it was revealed a Guardians of the Galaxy movie will be expanding Marvel Studios' cinematic universe in 2014, the anticipated release date that was announced earlier this year has been pushed back from May to August. Specifically, Box office Mojo exclusively reports that Walt Disney studios' Buena Vista distributor has moved the yet-to-be-announced Marvel flick from May 16, 2014 to August 1, 2014.
Beyond spacing out the release of the studios' other 2014 film, Captain America 2 (April 4), this move also makes room for other blockbuster films. These films, all sequels, include Transformers 4 (June 27), the untitled X-Men: First Class sequel (July 18), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (May 2), and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (May 23).
Despite fairly reliable sources already confirming that Guardians of the Galaxy will be the currently untitled project, we can expect the official announcement at next week's San Diego Comic-Con convention. Marvel Studios' panel for Iron Man 3 will kick off July 14, 6:00pm – 7:00pm, at Hall H. What do you think?
Marvel Studios has dubbed “Guardians of the Galaxy” a “big space epic” that will introduce various cosmic entities from the Marvel Comics universe. The superhero team first appeared in “Marvel Super-Heroes #18” in 1969, created by Arnold Drake & Gene Colan. In 2008, the team was rebooted by Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning in “Guardians of the Galaxy (vol. 2) #1.” The team's live-action roster will include Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot. And also Thanos, the villain who made his live-action debut unexpectedly during Marvel's The Avengers mid-credits stinger, is expected to reprise his role. With a screenplay written by Nicole Perlman, a graduate of Disney's screenwriting program, no director is yet attached. And distributor Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures has scheduled “Guardians of the Galaxy” for release on August 1, 2014.
