If Guardians of the Galaxy film gets made, it'll be a comedy?

According to Latino Review, if Disney/Marvel go ahead with a possible Guardians of the Galaxy film, it'll be a comedy. But if the following is accurate, I am not impressed by 2 of the actors they're seeking:
Marvel is asking for the availability of both Jim Carrey AND Adam Sandler!
Now Carrey I could probably be fine with, and he did once star in a comedy based on a comic (The Mask), but Sandler's one of the most repellant performers I know of, and made some of the most vulgar films to come down the pike in the past 2 decades. He should most definitely not be allowed anywhere near a movie adaptation like this.

Come to think of it, a movie based on Guardians shouldn't even be a comedy per se. Of course it should have comedic moments, but the genre itself is something they should decidedly refrain from.


Given that early rumors have it as a direct lead-in to Avengers 2 (and thus, Thanos as villain), I doubt it'll be a comedy.

Maybe they confused it with Edgar Wright's Ant Man? Though given Marvel's history of (relative) cheapness toward actors, I doubt they'd shell out the $$$ for Carrey or Sandler, let alone both.

I don't think it'll be a comedy. Jim Carrey I don't mind, since like you said, he was in The Mask.... he just has a tendency to play the same character in every movie he's in. Adam Sandler does, too, but I find him to be rather repulsive.

Here's something I should've remembered: he (Carrey, that is) played the Riddler in Batman Forever. Then again, I didn't like that movie, so that's probably why i forgot.
