Downey Jr. Praises Marvel’s “Guardians”

There are many fans of Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” one of them being “Iron Man” star himself Robert Downey Jr. who heaped praise upon the sci-fi film whilst doing press ahead of the Toronto International Film Festival. He tells The Toronto Sun:

“Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever. And it’s odd for someone with – on occasion – an ego the size of mine to actually say that.

We’re talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic books series and say: ‘Look!’

It’s like you have a great quarterback, and his brother plays for another team, and then you say: ‘Look, this is their second cousin and we think he has a great arm and he should start.’ And then he goes and wins the Superbowl.

Speaking of ‘Guardians,’ a whole bunch of concept art from the film has gone online in recent days. Concept artist Andy Park, who worked on the film during the pre-production, released these very different looks at Thanos’ adoptive daughters Gamora and Nebula.
