‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ a Risk Worth Taking for Marvel Studios | Variety
And good on you for it, sir.“We want to show that we can make films with characters (you may not have heard of),” Feige says. “It’s not about a marquee superhero. It’s about whether it’s inherently a good idea for a movie.”
This is a good read.If Gunn had to prove anything to Marvel to land “Guardians,” it was his ability to tackle the big action scenes. He did that by storyboarding major setpieces he wanted to see in the film before landing the job. “I’ve been waiting to do huge action sequences my whole life, and I just never had the budget to be able to do it,” he says. With “Guardians,” Gunn now had a much larger budget than what he was used to (“Super” was made for $3 million; “Slither” for $15 million), and could “envision any shot in my head and make it a reality. It’s wonderful. It’s orgasmic to say the least.”
