    Count me as bummed that Thor and GotG are separate franchises. It seemed like a great combo, specially with Gunn writing and directing it.

    Eh, but Days of Future Past is an iconic storyline that shaped the entire X-Men universe in the comics. It has existed as an X-Men "thing" since the 1980s. I don't know much about the Star Wars...

    You guys need to read the Garth Ennis comic Jimmy's Bastards.
