I was a fan of the comic, and hoped that one day we would see a lavish big screen version. So when the news arrived at that Benedict Cumberbatch was playing the eponymous sorcerer, like millions of fans around the world, I was thrilled by the news. Now the trailer has arrived, I'm not so sure.

Sinister back stories, intimidating outfits and, of course, innovative and intriguing weapons - it's no wonder that popular fascination with supervillains is at an all-time high.

One of Marvel's least-known heroines in a world of Avengers, super gods, iron men and spider men, Jessica Jones is a character we can all relate to.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Review

Visually, Guardians of the Galaxy is a stunner. Colours positively burst from the screen as if from a Pixar movie. The rather saturated Captain America Winter Soldier is positively bland and lifeless compared to the astonishingly vibrant world brought to life in Guardians.

Guardians of the Galaxy - The Review

Roger Crow | Posted 30.09.2014 | UK Entertainment

A fun, action packed, occasionally moving, occasionally filthy live action comic book fantasy. The cast is terrific, Chris Pratt is perfect as the heroic Star Lord, while Zoe Saldana as sexy as ever as the green skinned Gamora.
