Steven S. DeKnight hit the Guardians of the Galaxy red carpet as a new member of Marvel Studios - the showrunner of Daredevil, coming in 2015 from Marvel and Netflix. The series will be “going for a gritty, 1970s’ New York feel,” he told IGN. “We love the idea of beauty and the decay of the city, and Hell's Kitchen being a place that's both beautiful and gritty at the same time. And that's why Matt Murdock loves it and wants to protect it."
As for Doctor Strange, fans should absolutely be looking for news on the film, and maybe who will play him, this weekend at Comic-Con. Kevin Feige, President of the Studios said we’ll heard casting “relatively quickly,” though he did caution, “I don’t know if it’ll be as quick as next Saturday.” He won’t eliminate the idea of Doctor Strange - or just about anyone else - joining the Avengers in the MCU in the future. "Go into the comic bin and pull up any Avengers issue from 1960-whatever and 1980-whatever, and they probably don't match. I think that's fun. That's one of the reasons why Wanda and Pietro have shown up in the new Avengers film, because we like the notion of a shifting roster, of a growing roster."
Are you seeing Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend for the big opening? Marvel, and James Gunn, really think you should see it in the larger IMAX format. Here’s a featurette with a couple new shots and the director’s thoughts.
