I guess Gunn and Co are getting ready to set up in Shepperton Studios. This is going to be the fourth Marvel Studios film filmed at Shepperton now.

I don't think they're consulting in any official circumstance but they literally wrote the book on Guardians of the Galaxy. DnA are amazing when it comes to cosmic stuff. Gunn should pick their brains every chance he gets.

Yeah, all those cosmic storylines from 2004-2011 was written by DnA. I wonder how much of it they will actually use in the film? They will need to pull a lot of stuff from classic stories to set up Gamora and Drax's backgrounds.

Yeah the more DnA are involved, the better for me, Annihilation, Conquest, War Of Kings, The Thanos Imperitive and The Annihilators series were all amazing to me, and they all involved the characters in this movie pretty heavily. Get as much info as you can from them James!

just something from slashfilm about marvel casting.
http://www.slashfilm.com/behind-the-...arvel-studios/

Quote:
Over the past couple weeks weíve heard a lot about the casting process for Guardians of the Galaxy at Marvel Studios. The film is the next big thing from the studio, and requires the assembly of a substantial cast to play the team of the title.
Chris Pratt won the lead role, and at the end of last week we heard that Jason Momoa had been offered one of the prime secondary roles. That was followed by some dithering about whether or not he was going to take the salary Marvel is offering. Weíve heard that sort of thing before, especially with respect to Marvel, which notoriously lowballs salaries for actors. Ultimately, Momoa has reportedly passed on the role.
But since weíre talking about this a lot lately, thereís some background to this dealmaking that sets Marvel apart from other studios, and it is worth knowing. Every studio tests actors for big roles in new tentpoles, but no movie studio does it in quite the same way Marvel does. The specifics of Marvelís working method mean that the way things get reported are a little different from other outfits, as well. So letís dig in to how the company does business, to get a better understanding of what some of the news reports mean.
The typical setup is that once a movie project is in motion, thereís a set of producers (and the director) on one side, and a set of actors and their managers and agents on the other. The dealmaking process isnít always straightforward, but generally speaking actors test or are considered, thereís some back and forth on deal points, and eventually someone is signed.
At Marvel, the structure is a bit different. Marvelís system works like TV. In TV dealmaking, many deals are written and signed before actors have tested for a part, and way before theyíve been offered a part. There might be some bargaining, but the average actor who signs for a TV show knows what theyíre going to make for each theoretical season and how many seasons theyíre locked in for at the outset.
Before an actor tests for a Marvel role, a deal is written and signed. That last part is important. If an actor wants to read for a role, or go on tape to test for the producers on a Marvel film, they start the process with a deal that specifies salary, the number of films in which that actor can be optioned to appear, and so on. This happens whether or not a part is offered.
Thus, when a role is offered, there is already a deal. Itís a fairly unique setup.
What does this have to do with Guardians of the Galaxy?
  • A lot of people have tested for the big roles.
  • Quite a few people went in for Drax, the role for which Momoa was rumored.
  • They all have deals, but none are, for lack of a better word, active.
  • At this point, no one has the part.
  • Thatís probably going to change, fast, but right now, Marvel has its pick of people.
Why do actors want this, despite the fact that Marvelís process isnít traditional, or particularly accommodating?
It should be obvious, but look at someone like Chris Hemsworth. He didnít earn much to play Thor originally, and he likely didnít get a lot more to be in The Avengers, or Thor 2. But before he was Thor, he was just another Australian import. Now heís Chris Hemsworth. Heís a name, and he can get a hefty salary for lead roles outside of Marvel.
The studioís movies have become great stepping stones for actors ó especially those in lead roles. Chris Evans was doing excellent work long before he was Captain America, but that movie made people see him differently. The assumption is that Guardians of the Galaxy would have the power to do this for the new cast. Personally, Iím disappointed that Momoa (or his people) seem to have decided that the deal wasnít to his advantage.

Its also important to remember that even before Annihilation at Marvel, DnA were also doing space/cosmic stories. . . over at DC, for the post-Zero Hour Legion reboot. They really are the number one name when it comes to cosmic supers in the past 20 years.

Take with a huge grain of salt, but there's a rumor going around that we catch our first glimpse of Star-Lord in IM3.

There's a major, MAJOR spoilerific breakdown of the whole IM3 movie over at a 4chan site by A Guy Who Claims To Have Seen It. Yeah, very definitely could be Troll City, but the description of IM3 *seems* reasonable enough....nothing that sounds blatantly trollesque.

So *if* the guy is right, the Star-Lord/GOTG connection to IM3 happens in the following spoilerific fashion:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Ever since going head-to-head with the Chitauri, Tony Stark has been understandably paranoid about space aliens. He programs JARVIS to "watch the skies" and report any anomaly that could indicate another possible visitation/invasion, and builds a deep space Iron Man suit --- courtesy of "an envoy from Wakanda," no less. Not shown, but yay for BP easter eggs. By the end of IM3, apparently a post-cred scene, JARVIS reports unusual fluctuations at the far end of the Milky Way. An incoming SOS comes through in English --- and we see Star-Lord in an authentic canonical mask. Tony takes off into space. JARVIS asks if he'll be back, and he says yes, but this time he's ready.

Chris Evans wasn't doing excellent work before Captain America and he was borderline falling into obscurity.

I've scoured the interwebs and kept up with all this Phase II stuff in pretty much realtime, and it's the first I've heard of Star-Lord showing up onscreen in his mask in IM3. You got an inside line to Feige? Congrats.

Excuse me, but I too have been following news of this movie and this is the first substantial rumour I've heard about GotG being in IRON MAN 3. You may be confused. There were lots of rumours of Iron Man being in Guardians of the Galaxy, but vice versa? Even if you happened to have heard the Star Lord making a cameo in Iron Man 3 rumour years ago, you don't need to act so smug about it. Complete news to me. And complete news to Cherokee. If 2 people who are following the production of this film religiously missed something, then most casual fans probably missed it. So posting it here is completely justified.
