Alright, here's the thing. This Guardians of the Galaxy movie: by all accounts it's an amazing movie. Like really good. But it's hardly based off one of Marvel's super (for want of a better term) AAA properties. If a series like that has managed to get one the cinematic treatment, and have it done incredibly well -- why not video games?
Here's what I'm trying to say: so Batman gets a movie, Spiderman gets a movie, Superman gets a movie. Big budget movies. I get that. These are the Mario, Halo and Uncharteds of the comic book world. But Guardians of the Galaxy? That's more like... the Borderlands of the comic book world. Popular with enthusiasts, sure. But worthy of mainstream attention? Not really.
So if we're able to get a bloody excellent movie based on a relatively obscure comic book, why can't we get a half decent movie, with a great Director, behind a video game movie? Seriously, it's about time someone did a good job with this stuff.
