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.

AgentZero - 7/23/2013, 9:15 PM
I think the HULK might have something to say about that.

Let's settle this down in a movie, shall we ?

The HULK is the strongest one there is

BlackHulk - 7/23/2013, 9:18 PM
Two of the Avengers dont even have super powers, so there is no comparison at all.
silverhawk - 7/23/2013, 9:19 PM
lol I like Drax, but beat Hulk and Thor? haha nah...no.
DioFoRio - 7/23/2013, 9:19 PM

RR vs Cap
StarLord vs Ironman
Groot vs Hulk
Drax vs Thor
Gamora vs Widow and Barton
Dinotron - 7/23/2013, 9:22 PM
The Hulk has pretty much limitless strength levels

Thor basically could fly through mostly any creature, and he made a freakin huge tornado

Cap is about to get a huge fighting ability boost in his upcoming movie as said in interviews

Iron Man has (well used to have) an army of armors

The Guardians need to go home and rethink their life...
Super12 - 7/23/2013, 9:24 PM
That interviews frickin hilarious. This is gonna be such a fun movie, "soft porn in space" lol. You can tell the cast is super relaxed about this cause really there's zero expectations for the GOTG cause nobody knows them. Cant wait!
CaptainKangarooPimp - 7/23/2013, 9:25 PM
Drax could kick Cap's ass thats for sure.
iZinDiaN - 7/23/2013, 9:26 PM
Lmao kick Hulk's ass? Are you stupid?
REDSTORM - 7/23/2013, 9:27 PM
See but Banner needs to be angry to become the Hulk. It's difficult to be angry when you're staring at a raccoon in a spacesuit.
superotherside - 7/23/2013, 9:28 PM
Hope we get tons of Drax action. Loved it when Drax was just slaughtering what ever Thanos would throw at him. Then he punches his heart out of his chest.



Epic moment. Hope to eventually see that scene on film.

Guardians vs. Avengers? Tough call honestly. It is a throw up who would win.

Most would say that Thor and Hulk are more powerful than Drax but then he was able to kill Thanos. Thanos can survive a nuclear bomb or even much more with little effect. Plus Thor and Hulk have gone up against Thanos multiple times and haven't been able to kill him so, it's not as easy a choice as some may think.

Gamora is like Wolverine and can heal most anything. Plus she's the most deadly woman in the universe. Nuff said.

Rocket has so many guns that could fry you so many different ways it is ridiculous. Tough call there too.

Star Lord is probably the weakest of the lot, but he has managed well several times in times where it's almost stupid at what he had to go though. So I wouldn't count him out as a total looser either. Seriously once he went though suddenly getting old and still put up some ok fights. (Long story.)

So honestly while most would say oh Avengers would win easily. I say maybe, maybe not.
Dusk - 7/23/2013, 9:30 PM
Its almost Wednesday and still no word on who is voicing RR and Groot! Aaaarrrggghhh
JoeyGhoul - 7/23/2013, 9:31 PM
So petty and tiny.
CharlesLord - 7/23/2013, 9:32 PM
I was rooting for Bautista til he said Drax could kick Hulks ass...nah brah
SugarYumYum - 7/23/2013, 9:33 PM
Uh oh.

The Avengers cast should respond to this. X-D
superotherside - 7/23/2013, 9:34 PM
Iron Man, Cap, Black Widow, and Hawkeye nearly died in the Avengers from all the destruction in New York. Hulk and Thor would have survived etc. but the whole New York thing the Guardians have to put up with like every other hour. That's normal.

Now when reality is ripping apart, that's when they start to get a bit worried. ;P XD
MarkV - 7/23/2013, 9:36 PM
"We've got a Hulk"
Marvel1997 - 7/23/2013, 9:37 PM
@2Challa- Gamora would destroy both hawkeye and widow
BANE5000 - 7/23/2013, 9:41 PM
Imagine seeing Gamora fight Black Widow or Drax Vs thor or Hulk...or both at the same time :D

Even Star Lord going up against Cap or how funny it would be to see Rocket Racoon in a shoot out with Iron Man
Ramiel - 7/23/2013, 9:41 PM
Thor would solo GOTG. They need to start reading the comics or something.
TheWolverine08 - 7/23/2013, 9:44 PM
Beat THOR? Drax is cool, but he ain't in Thor's league.
FlapjackAce - 7/23/2013, 9:48 PM
That's so adorable, he thinks Drax can beat Hulk.
jcfrommars9 - 7/23/2013, 9:50 PM
"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"

Did everybody who doesn't like humor and levity in their comic book movies get that?
WOTAN - 7/23/2013, 9:51 PM
Thor and hulk could stomp their whole team by themselves they wouldn't even need the rest of the avengers.
mdwilliamson24 - 7/23/2013, 9:53 PM
Dave is just playing around...he is using his wrestling bravado to "trash talk" the opponent down and make himself, or his character Drax, look better and tougher.
Its all in fun. Its the wrestling theatrics that he is used to. I love it.

But no, he couldn't beat Thor or Hulk :)
Jagfan28 - 7/23/2013, 9:54 PM
That's a full-sized raccoon Bautista is holding. He's just that big.
TheWolverine08 - 7/23/2013, 9:55 PM
Anyways, this movie should be awesome! Marvel Studios first space epic!
Hulk2008 - 7/23/2013, 9:55 PM
No way Draxx can beat Hulk,

Draxx even said to Hulk in "Avengers Assemble" out of respect for Hulk "I come in peace"
chrispunk28 - 7/23/2013, 9:58 PM
@Maestro
