A Little Bit on the Guardians of the Galaxy

The other night I was explaining to wife how all the “recent” Marvel movies are tied together in one big story line.  She was a little surprised to find out the Guardians of the Galaxy is part of a story that includes Iron Man and Captain America.  Truthfully it is a conversation I have with [Read More…]
