If a certain number of rumors could make a story officially true, we would have known for sure that “Guardians of the Galaxy” is one of the secret movies Marvel is cooking up months ago. But for now we’re just going to have to take all these stories coming out about it with a (very small) grain of salt.
A source told Latino Review that “Guardians” is going to be the second Marvel movie released in 2014, following “Captain America 2.” We’ve known for a while now that there is a film set for May 16, 2014, but we just haven’t known which it was. In recent weeks, it seemed like it would come down to either “Guardians” or “Ant-Man,” and now it seems like it will be the former.
The site says that Marvel will likely make the big announcement during the studio’s Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 14, so don’t expect to be kept in suspense much longer. Hopefully we’ll also get a tease of “Iron Man 3” during that time and find out for sure if the second secret movie is going to be “Ant-Man” (which it probably will be).
According to the source, Thanos will make his second Marvel cinematic universe appearance in “Guardians,” and will likely be the movie’s main villain. That plot line will lead up into “The Avengers 2,” which will hit theaters in 2015. Our guess is that it will be 2015’s second movie, giving Marvel a chance to capitalize on a second new standalone flick (again, likely “Ant-Man”) before uniting Earth’s mightiest for a second time.
Again, this is mostly speculation for now, but we’ve been hearing enough about this rumor that it is likely true. Fortunately there’s only two more weeks until we know for sure.
