The Marvel Cinematic Universe was in full swing, developing groundbreaking action superhero movies when it was announced that a new comic book team was being made into a feature film. Was it going to be the Fantastic Four? The Defenders? No... it was to be an obscure group of characters few had ever heard of before! The Guardians of the Galaxy were a relatively unknown group before the movie was made, but since then, they've become one of the most beloved superhero crews both on and off the silver screen.
The movie was certainly a gamble, and it worked. The assemblage of Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot, and Drax proved to be just as fun to watch as the Avengers... maybe even more fun. Just like every other film in the MCU, the fans have scrutinized Guardians of the Galaxy, but there's always something new to learn about everyone's favorite band of cosmic heroes and some of the impressive battle scenes they've been in over the years.
That's especially true when you're looking at some of the things that happened behind the scenes. Guardians of the Galaxy certainly had a lot going on that wasn't revealed until much later, and when you find out what those things were, you're going to want to go back and rewatch the film. This list compiles some of the most fascinating behind-the-scenes facts from Guardians of the Galaxy that'll make you want to sit through it all over again. Take a look down below, and don't forget to upvote your favorites before you head back to the couch to chill with the gang for a couple of hours.
