Guardians of the Galaxy
A few weeks of additional filming, involving the film's main cast and crew, occurred in March 2014 at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California. In April 2014, Gunn described Thanos as the "head of the snake" in the film, and confirmed he would appear via performance capture. In May 2014, Gunn stated that the film features an "enormous" amount of smaller and minor characters from the Marvel Universe, adding that he felt the film had the most characters overall of any Marvel Studios film to date. Costume supervisor Dan Grace added to this by saying, "We really, really get the feeling of the scale and scope of the galaxy. We visit five planets, we see a hundred different races." The film introduces the alien race Sakaaran, who act as Ronan's mercenaries, as a replacement to the Badoon, as the Badoon film rights belonged to 20th Century Fox.
An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits--Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand--with the galaxy's fate in the balance.
Groot convinces Rocket and Drax to rescue Quill and Gamora, and the three attempt an attack on Udonta's ship to recover their friends. Reunited, the group agrees that facing Ronan means certain death, but that they must stop him from using the Infinity Stone to lay waste to the galaxy. On the Dark Aster, Ronan contacts Thanos, who demands that the Kree deliver the Orb to him as promised. However, Ronan embeds the Power Stone in his hammer, taking its power for himself, promising that after the destruction of Xandar, he will come for Thanos. Hateful of her adopted father for all the suffering he wrought upon her throughout her life, Nebula agrees to aid Ronan. Quill sends a message to Rhomann Dey, warning the Nova Corps of Ronan's attack.
She also reveals to Quill that, based on medical reports, they have deciphered that he is only half-human and that his father belongs to an ancient alien race that they have not yet encountered. The Guardians then leave Xandar in the Milano, which was repaired by the Nova Corps, and venture out into the galaxy in search of adventure, accompanied by a recovered twig from Groot, which is already beginning to regrow.
The Guardians of the Galaxy have been idealized by Peter Quill, the legendary Star-Lord, as a pro-active team to protect the cosmos. Quill idealized the team in light of two subsequent crisis that had forced independent heroes to improvise a resistance when the galaxy was threatened, namely the incursion of the Annihilation Wave and the conquest of the Kree Empire by the Phalanx. The Guardians of the Galaxy usually transit between being a sanctioned police force in space or a group of outlawed mercenaries. By expecting no one else would do their heroic work, their goal is to protect innocent civilizations from being destroyed or enslaved by opportunistic invaders.
Considering that independent cosmic heroes had been forced to join their might to combat the incursion of Annihilus and his Annihilation Wave into the universe and Ultron and the Phalanx conquest of the Kree Empire, Peter Quill, the champion legendarily known as the Star-Lord, decided to establish a proactive force to guard the galaxy without improvisation. On the recommendation of his ally Nova, the Human Rocket, Quill established a base of operations for his prospective group at the neutral station Knowhere, which conveniently had a teleportation system with near-universal range, an intelligent and psychic Soviet dog called Cosmo as its chief of security and galactic liaison to the new team and the super hero team known as the Luminals of Xarth, who became Quill's rivals and neighbors.
For his team, Quill enlisted former teammates and previous convicted criminals he had worked with in a special mission for the Kree Empire during the Phalanx conquest: weapons expert and tactical genius Rocket and the psychic counselor Mantis. Moreover, he recruited the cosmically powerful heroes who had also played parts during the previous crises, namely Phyla-Vell, the Protector of the Universe named Quasar and wielder of the Quantum Bands, and the recently reborn Warlock, a cosmic sorcerer and former possessor of the Infinity Stones. The deadly assassins Gamora, who had a reputation as the most dangerous woman in the galaxy, and Drax the Destroyer rounded up the team.
Around this period, the Spartax Council decided to coronate a new Emperor as J'son had been dethroned. Peter Quill was nominated based on his opposition to his father and his activities to benefit he galaxy. Although the legendary Star-Lord himself had no idea he had been nominated, his candidacy was extremely popular in Spartax and he was elected as their leader in absentia. During the rise of his unexpected political career, Quill kept a low profile, but was hunted down by the Slaughter Squad. The mercenaries acted on the orders of his father, who had adopted the identity of the crime-lord Mister Knife and wished to acquire the Black Vortex, an item that cosmically unleashed the cosmic potential of those who communed with it. Quill evaded his opponents alongside his long-distance girlfriend Kitty Pryde.
Her cosmic senses allowed her to see through the illusion crafted by Emperor Doom following the destruction of the Multiverse. In a reshaped world, with nothing else but one planet, the Guardians had no galaxy to protect and operated in Knowhere as rebels to Doom's rule. Knowhere was seized by Yotat the Destroyer, who also sought revenge on Drax for intervening in a past ordeal involving Rocket and the mob boss Giogo. Being helped by Doom's agent from the Thor Corps Angela and the Nova Corps, the Guardians defeated Yotat, but the blasphemous Gamora was violently interrogated by Angela. They were interrupted by a surviving Kree Accuser who was difficultly subdued by the Guardians. The partially amnesiac group was then greeted by Quill, who had survived the death of the multiverse and enlisted his teammates in the final war against Doom, to restore the previous existence.
As the Guardians marched back to the Grandmaster, the Raptors attacked Milano, an opportunity their leader Talonar took to retrieve the Nega-Bands that belonged to the Kree hero Mar-Vell. Rocket managed to keep one of the bands but was poisoned during the fight for it. Quill traded the band for an antidote and managed to banish Talonar to a remote part of the galaxy. Finally meeting the Grandmaster, the Guardians of the Galaxy found themselves caught up in the brotherly war between the two Elders of the Universe, which unexpectedly ended up with a truce. The Grandmaster and the Collector determined the events behind the missing Infinity Stones and the missing Elders of the Universe were not a coincidence and could help them uncover secret machinations. As part of their investigations on the whereabouts of the Infinity Stones, the Guardians visited Earth. Milano was infiltrated by the size-altering hero Ant-Man who asked to join the Guardians as a way to abandon Earth following him being blackmailed by the fallen Hydra Empire.
The Guardians were enlisted to the corrupted Nova Corps by Commander Adsit as the Raptors represented a common enemy. Relocated to the the Rock, the Guardians of the Galaxy joined the Nova Corps and searched for infiltrators within it. Moreover, it was revealed that Thanos had escaped the Corps' custody. In the Rock, Quill learned his friend Nova, who had seemingly perished in the Cancerverse, was alive. They met up and look for rogue spies in a resisting post led by Nova Eve Bakian in planet Xitaung, where the Power Stone was found. Gamora and Ant-Man learned that Ultron had infected uncountable souls with the Ultron Virus in the galaxy, transforming them into cyborg slaves, and managed to rescue some refuges. At the same time, Drax discovered that Novas ordered by the Fraternity of Raptors had bargained for Thanos' freedom in order to damage the Nova Corps' reputation. This led the Nova Corps to start getting partially rid of its enemies within.
Eros assembled all super heroes in the galaxy to discuss the upcoming return of Thanos in another person's body. In a trap devised by the Goddess of Death Hela and Thanos' Black Order, who had seized Knowhere, the cosmic agents in the gathering were dragged into a black hole. With the Guardians' effective end, a taciturn Quill and a tough Groot aimlessly wandered space in the Ryder without Rocket. They were drafted to Thanos' former ship the Sanctuary when investigating Knowhere's disappearance alongside the Nova Corps. Upon arriving at the location of the reading, they discovered the hammer Stormbreaker pulling out the only survivors of the Black Order's attack, namely Beta Ray Bill the alternate reality versions of Phyla-Vell and Moondragon, and the deranged Rider. Quill refused to hand the rescued victims over to the Nova Corps upon demand, declaring that they were his new crew. 041b061a72
