Guardians Of The Galaxy Hits $500 Million, Declared Best Marvel Movie By RDJ
A few years ago if you told someone that a Guardians of the Galaxy movie would come out and make over $500 million in worldwide box office revenues, you’d be laughed all the way back into your dank cave where you would hibernate until today when you could surface and be a smug bastard about it.
But here’s the thing: It did, and it has.

We certainly loved it, and so did a lot of others. Most notable of which is Iron Man star, Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr, who believes that Guardians of the Galaxy is the best Marvel movie yet.
I’m inclined to agree.
“Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever,” said RDJ at the Toronto International Film Festival. “And it’s odd for someone with – on occasion – an ego the size of mine to actually say that!”
According to RDJ, part of the reason for it being the best is because it’s such a massive underdog compared to the likes of Iron Man and The Avengers.
“We’re talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic books series and say: ‘Look!'”
Unanimous agreement? Who disagrees? Let us know in the comments. I for one will not stop going on about how Marvel put $170 million into a movie that nobody would ever have thought could be successful, and that made it work because they just went out and had some fun. If only DC would take a hint and start doing something similar instead of ‘no jokes please’…
