Kevin Feige Reveals Tons Of GOTG Character Details; Says Gamora Starts Off As A Villain

Revealing when Peter Quill leaves Earth and where we find Gamora at the start of the movie, Guardians of the Galaxy producer Kevin Feige also describes Rocket Racoon as being a "genetically and mechanically altered" experiment and confirms that Groot will indeed only say, "I am Groot".

Up until now, Guardians of the Gakaxy has been shrouded in an awful lot of secrecy. However, in another excerpt from his interview with Empire Magazine, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed loads of new details about both the backstories of the main characters and where we find them in the highly anticipated James Gunn helmed movie. What do you guys think?

"They are an unlikely band. It's pure circumstance that brings them all together throughout the course of the movie. Rocket has been genetically and mechanically altered, he's an experiment from one part of the galaxy. Groot is a species that happens to look like trees look, and is quite communicative if you can understand the different inflections in the way he says, "I am Groot." Peter Quill left Earth in the mid'80s, but when we meet back up with him he's very much a citizen of the universe. Drax has one goal and one goal only, which is to kill Ronan because of a past tragedy. When we meet Gamora, she's a bad guy working with Ronan and Nebula and Korath, and by extension for Thanos. Gamora doesn't necessarily like doing that anymore, and tries to find a new path for herself. But she has a reputation as the deadliest woman in the galaxy that people aren't greeting her with open arms."

This is either going to be an epic disaster or an epic win. But can't [frick]ing wait to see Rocket and Groot on the big screen. Seriously GOTG are hitting the big screen before Wonder Woman.
ezio619 - 8/23/2013, 7:20 AM
wow, so drax does not have a vendetta against thanos, dont know how i feel about that
Killuminatic - 8/23/2013, 7:26 AM
I sense a twist in the storyline... Especially with Drax's agenda. It's possible Ronan will eventually turn into a good guy in the end because there's so much more to him just being the main 'enforcer' for Thanos.
siggisuperman - 8/23/2013, 7:27 AM
This sounds amazing. I am betting that Ronan will reveal to Drax something that makes him go after Thanos.
Alphaman06 - 8/23/2013, 7:27 AM
Why can't DC get it right with their films....
storyteller - 8/23/2013, 7:30 AM
I have a feeling that Drax Thanos Vendetta will come about when he finds out who is really in charge.

Also DC's issue that WB is calling the shots and not DC.
charlie2094 - 8/23/2013, 7:30 AM
Drax will probably end up with a vendetta against Thanos as a result of what happens in the film.

Really looking forward to this, really think it'll be great.

^^^^^^^^^ my dude!
IM53 - 8/23/2013, 7:31 AM
The gotg are [frick]ing rockstars
ezio619 - 8/23/2013, 7:31 AM
man, this film sounds and looks so unique
IM53 - 8/23/2013, 7:32 AM
Im betting Drax rips Ronans ass and He joins the gotg and betrays thanos..just a thought
TheWolverine08 - 8/23/2013, 7:32 AM
This film looks epic!
IM53 - 8/23/2013, 7:33 AM
ManCalledSting - 8/23/2013, 7:34 AM
Meh, this is the cbm I'm least excited for. For me it's Superman/Batman, Days of Future Past, and Cap 2.
kevberg - 8/23/2013, 7:35 AM
yeah... This movie looks good from the footage..

I hope it rocks. It looks like it might. Im relieved Rocket looks as good as he does..thats half the battle right there.

but a walking alien tree....probably not gonna be my favorite character. I hope they Do Ronan justice in the costume.
Killuminatic - 8/23/2013, 7:36 AM
@Soto You ever heard of a coincidence? Fool...
ComicFan1134 - 8/23/2013, 7:37 AM
Somebody Explain "Mechanically Advanced"
IM53 - 8/23/2013, 7:38 AM
chillen trudy,at work brother. How u

@soto why u bringing that up on a marvel thread dude?
ezio619 - 8/23/2013, 7:38 AM
Soto-these interviews for magazines are done a while back and then they are given date when they can release just coincidence
Demongod20 - 8/23/2013, 7:38 AM
Groot will indeed only say, "I am Groot".

Rocket Raccoon and Groot will be Hogarth and Iron Giant all over again. :D
Dusk - 8/23/2013, 7:38 AM
The 80's. This explains the Walkman and "Hooked on a Feeling"
smgmayhem - 8/23/2013, 7:39 AM
@sotojuice - Did you read the article? Did you see the source? This interview happened way before The Batman announcement. And stop trying to spark flame wars man, any superhero news is good news in my book.
Omarvls - 8/23/2013, 7:39 AM

Isn't this film becoming the most anticipated film you can't wait to see since the Matrix sequel & Star Wars prequels
PsyGuy - 8/23/2013, 7:41 AM
I think it's hilarious when people on this site act like they're not going to see every major CBM.

Everyone is going to see GOTG and Superman/Batman and Cap 2 and Thor 2.
smgmayhem - 8/23/2013, 7:41 AM
@ComicFan1134 - Hes kind of like a terminator raccoon
NicolasCage1 - 8/23/2013, 7:42 AM
I would had been a better Batman than Ben Affleck.
smgmayhem - 8/23/2013, 7:43 AM
@PsyBoy - I know I'm going to try and see them all, the excitement level is off the roof.
IM53 - 8/23/2013, 7:44 AM
IM53 - 8/23/2013, 7:45 AM
@ dam Trudy? all that? im gonna send you a message in abit.
smgmayhem - 8/23/2013, 7:45 AM
@NicolasCage1 - But you have been running through the streets saying your a vampire instead of a batman lol.
CherryBomb - 8/23/2013, 7:45 AM

So Gamora and Nebula are working together? interesting.

I can't wait to see their grudge-filled fight scene!
ManCalledSting - 8/23/2013, 7:46 AM
No no, Soto is right. This guy did this interview for this magazine however many days ago, knowing that the Affleck news was going to break.

On a serious note, the Racoon part sounds dumb.
Demongod20 - 8/23/2013, 7:46 AM
@ PsyBoy
smgmayhem - 8/23/2013, 7:46 AM
*Would have
Omarvls - 8/23/2013, 7:47 AM

Are you like that fool elmayimbe that believes anytime DC/WB announces something Marvel is shi@#ing in their pants? Come on man Marvel is making their very own Star Wars type movie while DC/WB announces Affleck as Batman a horrible choice btw (no DC only fanboy had them in their list to play the Dark Knight)

Remember this was the year that DC/WB was going take over with MOS and all Marvel did was make 600 million MORE with Iron Man 3

DC/WB will NEVER catch or match Marvel's success
Mrsinister - 8/23/2013, 7:48 AM
I don't like the altered history of rocket and drax but I hope it's amazing!
ezio619 - 8/23/2013, 7:49 AM
Psyboy- i am gonna see Thor 2, Cap 2,amazing spiderman 2,x men days of future past,guardians , avengers 2, ant man, and batmanvs superman on opening weekend, so the more superheroes the better
Kabfire - 8/23/2013, 7:49 AM
From the footage and poster how is it that they can put RR into a wolverine outfit but it's been impossible to put Jackman's Wolverine into one?
NicolasCage1 - 8/23/2013, 7:50 AM

And that's precisely what a modern representation of Batman is lacking...

Many people today talking about Batman being a badass and about his "darkness" and shit but what would really put him in everybody's mind would be a couple of scenes of Bruce Wayne losing his shit (like burning his mansion but with more heart on it)

smgmayhem - 8/23/2013, 7:50 AM
Come on guys it does not matter who out sold who. Its normal for comic fans to bitch when a new actor is up to play any character, and then when the movie is released the tune is changed.
