The Guardians are unique in the respect that the team you see above have only really existed in the comics since 2008. Each of the characters were introduced before at one point or another before that, but the upcoming big screen adaptation isn’t going anywhere near as far back as the likes of Captain America and Iron Man.
Regardless, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a lot of options for Marvel Studios to explore as their comic book side of things have been exploring outer space ever since the Fantastic Four were created (and arguably even before that). So, who and what would we like to see brought to the big screen?
Well, read on to find out ten of the best options, and then relive the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer by clicking here.
Thought that a gun toting talking raccoon was crazy? How about the telepathic Russian space dog known as Cosmo? The canine hero is the head of security on the space station known as Knowhere, and later becomes a liaison to the Guardians of the Galaxy, assisting them in plotting their passport destinations and travelling to trouble spots in the universe via the Continuum Cortex.
Marvel are perhaps nervous enough as it is about how audiences will react to Rocket (although the reaction to the recent trailer is perhaps proof enough that they shouldn’t be), so they’re more than likely saving Cosmo for a future movie. Even so, a cameo appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy or at least a mention would be a nice nod to fans and the character would be great fun.
