|I long for a world in which We Are Groot|
But I had this thought that Gamora's character could just as easily have been our way in instead of Quill, right?

I mean, who the hell doesn't adore Chris Pratt? Let me join the internet legion declaring him the new J. Law in that he's totally charming and hilarious and genuine.

And also, well:
|I may find myself thinking of this during my next conference call|
|Mine too, Chris Pratt. Mine too.|
So, Marvel, I know you're planning on a female-led superhero movie.
|Oh, god, I wanted to be her SO BAD!|
But, I'm begging you, please DON'T MAKE HER RAPE INTO A PLOT POINT!!!!!
|Cuz it's just so done to death|
|We're coming for you, motherfuckers!|
Addendum, just to be clear: I am not making a case for Gamora as the lead in Guardians of the Galaxy. I think the movie was just great the way it was. I just was led into a thought about how it seems that so much pop culture thinks the only motivation a girl could have is rape. Or babies. Or gettin' a man. Marvel is turning into the fount (font?) of movie fun. I just really hope they can free themselves of this particularly pernicious cinematic trope.
