…but, yeah, I may have been one of the few people out there who thought Wanted was a desperate cry for help from the comic book community. So, anyway, from
173 Things We Learned From The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Trailer:
Star-Lord is very attached to his Walkman, which plays the 1974 song “Hooked On A Feeling” by Blue Swede, which you have had stuck in your head all day. ALL DAY. Clearly Star-Lord has no way of replacing this treasured possession, which means he hasn’t been on Earth since about the mid-’80s. That means he may have missed the whole grim-n-gritty era of comics in the late ’80s that started with Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns and quickly deteriorated into twenty years of garbage. So he probably doesn’t know that superheroes are supposed to be violent, miserable and humorless. Does this mean this movie might actually be fun?
We think so.
It might, rabbit, it might.
