After stealing a mysterious orb in the far reaches of outer space, Peter Quill from Earth is now the main target of a manhunt led by the villain known as Ronan the Accuser. To help fight Ronan and his team and save the galaxy from his power, Quill creates a team of space heroes known as the "Guardians of the Galaxy" to save the galaxy.Written by
Gunn confirmed in May 2013 that Hugh Laurie, Alan Rickman, and Ken Watanabe were being looked at for a role other than Ronan or Corpsman Dey. Given that Ronan and each of the Guardians were already cast, it is possible that they were considered for the role of Thanos. Watanabe had previously played the fake Ra'as Al Ghul in Batman Begins (2005). See more »
While Quill is dealing with the Broker for the orb, the Broker is lining up yellow and blue Units on the counter, three yellow ones followed by two blue ones. After placing the second blue one his hands move to his side just as Quill mentions Ronan. When the camera switches behind the desk again, despite not having touched them, one of the blue Units has disappeared and the order has changed from a single line to a double line, with the yellow Units on the bottom and the remaining blue Unit on the top.

Expectations: surpassed - and they were pretty damn high to begin with.
Excitement: met - after watching the teasers, the clips, and after Captain America the Winter soldier I was crossing my fingers Marvel were on a roll.
Face: still trying to recover - you know when you go to the cinema to see a comedy ( a film designed to make you laugh ) and you feel like an idiot for paying for the ticket as you were forcing most of the laughter in the company of your friends? This is a film that it's genuinely easy to laugh about:
The humour is so subtle because the characters are so subtle - they're not too animated, they're not too stereotypical and they are NOT what we've come to expect from traditional superheroes and THAT'S WHY THIS FILM WORKS SO WELL! Regardless if you're a Marvel fan or simply a fan of movies in general this is an experience you will welcome as it's new and refreshing to a sci-fi genre which really needed something new and refreshing and with great performances, stunning visuals and a barrel of laughs mixed with the right amount of action this was a real treat to watch.
Thank you Marvel Studios.
