FUN FACTS: Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

---------------------------------------------------
Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” first appeared in comic books in Marvel Super-Heroes, Issue #18 (Jan. 1969) and was created by Arnold Drake and Gene Colan. The modern Guardians team is the second to be featured under the name, and first appeared in “Guardians of the Galaxy, (Vol. 2) Issue #1 (May 2008). Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning created the new team, whose initial Guardians were Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Quasar, Adam Warlock, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer and Groot. 


Director James Gunn created a stimulating atmosphere by playing the film’s score while filming. Gunn had composer Tyler Bates complete some of the tracks early on and playing them added to the uplifting and congenial atmosphere on set, as well as setting the tone for the scenes. Along with tracks from the film’s original score, Gunn also had the sound department pump out the ’70s tunes that Peter Quill, played by Chris Pratt, plays on his old cassette player.

Finding the perfect cassette player to use in the film was a challenge that fell to prop master Barry Gibbs. Despite searching all over the Internet for four months, Gibbs’ team was able to find only 16 cassette players in various states of repair that were suitable to use in the film.

  1. Only sixteen? And to think at one time every person on the planet had a Walkman.

  2. If they needed full sized cassette players, they could've borrowed mine. I have a dual cassette component that still works.

  3. I still have a cassette player... most of the students books I use while teaching have tapes not CDs :)

  4. Imagine if they were looking for 8-tracks!

  5. It's awesome that they played playing the film’s score while filming. It probably added a whole new level.
