Kevin Feige emphasises that Guardians of the Galaxy is not Marvel’s Star Wars


02 September 2013

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has gone on record to emphasise that the forthcoming James Gunn directed Guardians of the Galaxy is not Marvel's Star Wars.

Speaking to Empire, Feige explained "We're not making this to make Marvel's Star Wars, we're doing this to explore the other side of the existing Marvel Universe.

The fact that Peter Quill is a human from our time, that he carries a personal cassette recorder with him, already it's very different. It's not a long, time ago in a galaxy far, far away, it's now in a galaxy far, far away."

Recently Michael Rooker who stars as Yondu hinted at the possibility of sequels to Guardians of the Galaxy.

Guardians of the Galaxy opens on August 1 next year and features Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Ophelia Lovibond, Lee Pace, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, Gregg Henry, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
