Word is that Marvel is set to announce that "Guardians of the Galaxy" will be its May 2014 movie release.
The original story centers on a group of aliens, the last surviving members of their kind, who journey to Earth to protect the planet from an upcoming invasion.
Bleeding Cool reports that Marvel has filed for eleven trademarks under the title, applying the name to a variety of international classes including "jewelery, beverages, furniture, cosmetics, computer games, fabrics, foods, paper goods, entertainment, internet services and even retail store services."
Sources for Heat Vision also indicate that news on the 'Guardians' film is expected at the company's panel during Comic-Con 2012.
It is the pic considered "most ready" to go thanks to Nicole Perlman's well-regarded script for which she penned two drafts.
