If the trailers are any indication, this movie is looking better and better. Getting pretty amped about this.

Plot twist!

Or at least it is to those of us who donít read the comic books and then have to frantically browse to the Wikipedia page to figure out whatís going on in the background.

BT

I actually kind of liked Ronan the Accuser as a villain, by the way, but thatís neither here nor there.
Lee Pace IS in the movie, as Ronan. I don't know if he accuses anyone yet.

Doesn't he accuse all those who would compromise the honor of the Kree? And then cleanse them?

Such is my understanding based on a recent re-watch of Guardians of the Galaxy.

He accused everyone in the movie of not being as awesome as he was.

But then he withdrew the accusation after he heard their counter-argument: I am Groot!

He did not have the dance skills to be the most awesome.

in Guardians of the Galaxy, Ronan was officially a renegade Kree who refused the honor the peace treaty his government had signed with the Nova Empire -- although it's also clear his government wasn't doing much to try to stop him.

My impression, with fairly vague knowledge of the Kree in the comic books, is that they're considered the "good guys" in the Kree-Skrull war, but that's mainly because the Skrulls are really, really awful. (In a Fantastic Four comic, the Thing once says to a Skrull, "Even Nazis are nicer than you creeps!") I never got the impression that the Kree were overly benign; although it could be a matter of of them actually being realistically diverse in behavior and goals, like, well, actual people, rather than being an entire race with one alignment.

Or, I could just be wrong.

Right, because his government knows no shame. Heís not going to forget a thousand years of war just because they signed a peace treaty.

In the comic books, the Kree were just as aggressive and expansionistic as the Skrulls: their war was a clash of two Empires fighting to see who would be the dominant power. The original Captain Marvel was a Kree renegade who sided with Earth, while Carol Danvers was kidnapped by the Kree and experimented on.

So, war has to go until everyone on one side is dead? I think I can firmly place him on the bad guys side.

I just want to see Ronan back on top again, supporting role be damned.

Lacks authenticity. No midi on auto play.

For comparison, here is a fansite for an actual TV series.

And yes, the song and the weird trailer are real too.

Wasn't that the series that was tied in with toys you were supposed to point at the screen, and if you took a hit (I believe there was some sort of optical sensor) your pilot would eject?
