DnA Not Consulted On The Guardians Movie!
They're finally making a "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie, after the comics pretty much getting annihilated and ignored in every possible way. Except they're not consulting the people who actually made the comics interesting, and the director that they seem to have selected [rumoured so far] isn't a favourite. Oh, and did I mention that they've left out some major characters like "Adam Warlock" and "Nova"? Meh.
"Abnett: These are Marvel's characters, and they will develop them as they see fit. Like I said, it's a huge compliment to us that they're doing that, but I think it's only fair to say that we haven't really been consulted in any way, shape or form. We wrote this stuff essentially as work-for-hire, and if Marvel came to us and said, "Would you like to consult on the movie?" that would be lovely. But for now, our interpretation is there on the page."
