Did GotG have a popular cartoon? As far as I'm aware they're pretty obscure even in comic circles (I don't read comics), yet they have their own film coming up.

I think Marvel are more concerned with getting a good creative team behind the movie than how popular the character is.

Also, I agree with those saying EMH did wonders for BP. As with most characters in the MCU (including Thor & Cap. It was only when those films went into production and I started frequenting their forums here that I got to know their characters), I knew next to nothing about BP but I thought he was a badass on EMH, and based just on that show and what I've read in here I think he's got loads of potential for a great film.

In flight there is serenity - the motion out, the space between,
The promise of each new life - and possibility.

Swallow flies south before the fall, before the winter can call...
Can call in each borrower - for what was given
