For those who’re like me, when the Guardians of the Galaxy film was introduced in 2012, you raised an eyebrow. Even for longtime comedian e-book followers, the Guardians had been comparatively obscure characters, so giving them their very own film was an odd thought. Fortunately for Marvel, that unusual thought paid off after which some. Guardians of the Galaxy was a bonafide success upon launch in 2014, making over $773 million worldwide and turning its starring characters into family names (effectively, Groot at the least). Three years later, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 adopted and in addition impressed critically and commercially. So sure, it is taken a very long time for the prospect of the X-Males and Improbable 4 showing within the MCU to lastly be inside grasp, however as a result of we bought these variations of the Guardians within the meantime, I am high-quality with the tradeoff.
