Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

1. In the comic book, Peter Quill was born to a human mother and an alien father and assumed his mantle of Star-Lord, an interplanetary policeman. In the film, Peter Quill (Star-Lord) was born in the late 1970s or early 1980s, also to a human mother but not knowing of his father's true (alien) identity. He then gets abducted, and raised by a group of interstellar thieves and smugglers called The Ravagers.

2. In the film, Ronan the Accuser is an Admiral serving under Thanos. This combines his classic Marvel comic’s portrayal (a top-ranking Military Governor) with his Marvel Ultimate comic’s portrayal (an ally of Thanos).

3. Chris Pratt cites heroes Han Solo and Marty McFly as influences on his performance as Star-Lord.

4. Features the first on-screen appearance of a Celestial's severed head. The Celestials are an ancient race of godlike beings that watch over and change the universe for both good and evil.

5. Benicio Del Toro's uncredited cameo as The Collector in Thor: The Dark World (2013) was written to set the stage for this film.

6. This film is primarily based on the 2008 comic team (Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot), but features Yondu, a member of the original 1969 comic team, as an ally.

7. When The Collector shows a recording of previous owners of the Infinity Stones, the being who uses the Power Stone to destroy a planet, is Eson the Searcher, a Celestial that appeared in the comic book Eternals #9 in 1977.
