Marvel’s upcoming movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, promises to be an interesting one- fans are excited not just to see how the cult hit Marvel characters are translated on to the big screen, but also to see how what seems to be such a tonally different movie is integrated into the larger overall Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Disney and Marvel are nothing if not adept at cross promotion of their properties, and Disney today announced that Marvel’s Guardian of the Galaxy will be coming to Disney Infinity, their NFC enabled ‘toys-to-life’ game, via a new toy set: Disney Infinity: Marvel Superheroes- Guardians of the Galaxy. Whew.
All four of the Guardians from the movie- Star Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Gamora, and Groot- will be playable in game.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set will be available this Fall, meaning it’s probably a good bet it will be in the markets by the time you and your kid get out from the theaters, just waiting for you to spend all that money.
