First look at the new Marvel one shot short film featuring Ben Kingsley as Trevor Slattery (from Iron Man 3). I know a lot of people are disappointed because this is going to be on the Thor: The Dark World DVD and the title is “All Hail The King,” so it was thought that it was probably about Loki with the way The Dark World ended. (entertainment weekly)

We have a plot synopsis for Guardians of The Galaxy: (screencrave)

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team — the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

-Screenrant has most anticipated new tv shows in 2014, including Gotham City (which I somehow knew nothing about until right now) (screenrant)

Anyone planning on watching Intelligence tonight? He was great on Lost. I love the fact that Josh Holloway is back on tv, so I hope the show’s good. I don’t like the short hair, though.

^First still from Guardians of the Galaxy! Pictured here are (left to right) Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista (also Rocket the Racoon voiced by Bradley Cooper and Groot voiced by Vin Diesel, I think.) I’m still not sure if this is going to do well, we’ll see. I mean, it’s a Marvel superhero type movie, but it also includes a talking raccoon. So I don’t know. I know they greenlit this after the success of the Avengers. It does have Lee Pace in it so that’s a plus.

Holy S**t of the day

So you know that meteorite that exploded over Russia? it could have done much worse than it did, according to an assessment released today by the European Space Agency (ESA). Apparently the explosion was equal to 30 atomic bombs. Yeah. They say something like this is only supposed to happen every 100 years, so here’s hoping they’re right about that.
