Be honest: Up until this summer, you had no idea who the Guardians of the Galaxy were. Seriously, this is a judgment-free zone. No one is going to make fun of you if you'd never heard of Rocket Raccoon prior to the film's release. But that's exactly what the folks behind the "Honest Trailers" YouTube channel are pointing out in their latest creation.
The film, which might actually be Vin Diesel's best work to date (he voiced the tree alien Groot), was incredibly popular over the summer, despite not featuring a widely known section of the Marvel Universe. Even Al Pacino liked it! The actor told the Happy Sad Confused podcast on Monday that not only did he see the film, but he also met with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige to talk about it! Naturally, some folks are interpreting that tidbit as "OMG Al Pacino might appear in an upcoming Marvel movie!" even though he didn't go into detail about what was discussed, because then Marvel would track him down and lock him up in space jail forever. But it happened!
Anyway, if Pacino pops up in a Marvel film soon, you'll know why. Now let's get to watching that hilarious Honest Trailer that celebrates Marvel being Marvel because it's freaking Marvel.
