THE AVENGERS Are No Match For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, Promises Cast Members
With Chris Pratt & Zoe Saldana unthinkingly confirming that Star-Lord "gets his ass handed to him" by Gamora, Guardians of the Galaxy cast members have downplayed The Avengers comparisons.
Preconceived notions about Guardians of the Galaxy would consider the interstellar superhero team, 'Earth's mightiest heroes... in space,' but cast members of the upcoming adaptation say otherwise. "We're different than the Avengers," insists Zoe Saldana. "The Guardians have much 'bigger' powers. We could totally kick Thor and Captain America's ass." Dave Bautista agrees chiming in, "Drax could definitely beat up Hulk and Thor." Seemingly in an effort to differentiate his warrior character and the Hulk, Bautista adds, "Drax is an interesting creature. He's full of rage and he's full of honor. But the best thing about Drax is he's hysterical, without really meaning to be."
"It's the 'Anti-Hero Hero Movie," said Zoe Saldana. "These are thieves, rebels, assassins who come together to fight something actually much worse than them. And there's actually a lot of comedy — the levity will be abundant," she adds. Meanwhile, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn shared a bit of random info about Benicio del Toro, who's set to play The Collector. "During our first meeting, Benicio and I were discussing collecting stuff," said Gunn. "And suddenly he got very serious and turned to me and said, 'I was the first kid in my 'hood to have an alligator.'" Speaking of the Collector, whose presence is said to span multiple films, and the aforementioned bit about the Guardians duking it out with The Avengers, it's heavily implied the two superhero teams will eventually cross paths at the threat of Thanos. What do you think?
Anyhow, in the separate video interview below, Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana recall rehearsing and filming fight sequences together, involving Star-Lord getting "his ass handed to him" by Gamora.
“Guardians of the Galaxy,” the next epic adventure from Marvel Studios, is directed by James Gunn from his screenplay, with a story by Nicole Perlman and Gunn, and the film will introduce audiences to a whole new side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
