GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Ranks As Deadliest Film Ever According To A New Report

James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy may have been a hit due to its humour and action, but according to a new report, it also packs a massive on-screen death toll. More past the jump...

Guardians of the Galaxy may be considered one of Marvel Studios' more lighthearted affairs, but it looks like the film has a a bit of a dark underbelly. According to a new top 10 report by GoCompare, the film rates as the deadliest film of all time (sine the 1940's) when it comes to on-screen casualties, with a total of 83,871 on-screen deaths (80,000 of which are Nova Corps. pilots eliminated by Ronan the Accuser's Dark Aster). Marvel's The Avengers also made the list, coming in last place with 1,019 on-screen deaths. 

Guardians director James Gunn found out about the list, responding with some joking enthusiasm. “So I guess #GotG is now the deadliest film in movie history,” Gunn wrote on Twitter. “By, like, a lot. Um, yay?” Gunn went on to defend the poll and explain why other films, such as Star Wars, didn't make the list. "They’re only counting ONSCREEN deaths, not seeing a planet explode. There are tons of movies where billions of people die, unseen." Be sure to check out the full list below!
