Despite rumors to the contrary, Tony Stark never flew out to space to meet up with Star-Lord at the end of "Iron Man 3." And now, a new report states that you shouldn't expect to see any of Earth's mightiest heroes popping up in "Guardians of the Galaxy" at all.
Some possible spoilers beyond the break.
JoBlo.com has a new report about "Guardians" and its place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to the site, the film has a role for Thanos (though it sounds like he's more of a background player than the lead villain), and that it does take place in "the same time/universe as the current phase of films," but that there won't be any members of the actual Avengers roster teaming up with Star-Lord and friends. Not exactly surprising, given Joss Whedon's recent suggestion that there won't be any Guardians in "The Avengers 2."
The JoBlo report also adds that Ronan the Accuser is the main baddie in "Guardians" (you remember him, John C. Reilly was falsely linked to him... or was it false?) and that our heroes will be operating out of the iconic Knowhere, "a space station with the ability to teleport throughout the universe."
In other Marvel news, the site offers a quick update on "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." JoBlo reports that this movie is "pretty much a sequel to 'The Avengers' and plays the biggest role in leading into 'The Avengers 2.'" The Cap sequel will also focus heavily on Black Widow's back story and will feature more of her gadgets.
Take all of that with a gain of salt for now.
