The release of "Iron Man 3" kicked off phase 2 of the marvel cinematic universe and now the second film, "Thor: The Dark World" is set to open in AMC Theatres everywhere this Friday. But what about the film with the walking tree and talking raccoon?

James Gunn, who is directing the upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy", revealed a bit more of what we have in store for us. While we got a tease of mega-villain Thanos in "The Avengers" last Summer, he let know that Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) will be the main villain in his film.

Gun stated, "Thanos is a character in our movie. He's the main sort of...He works with Ronan. In my movie Ronan works for Thanos, and Ronan is the main bad guy in our film."

He also discussed how while CGI will be used, he prides himself on the beauty of utilizing a lot of practical effects as well. "We have a prison set that is 350,000 pounds of steel," said Gunn. "Our sets are enormous. Anybody who knows me knows I really love the mix of practical and CGI effects and I carried that over into this movie. We have tons and tons of practical effects. People ask if it's expensive, and it is, but not compared to making every single shot in the movie a visual effect. We have tons of practical sets. I can't wait for people to see it because it's astoundingly beautiful."

In addition to Pace, the film also stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Glenn Close, Karen Gillman, Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
