Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has been talking up forthcoming project 'Guardians of the Galaxy', revealing that the majority of the action will be taking place in space.

The project, thought to be one of Marvel's more risky gambits, is among a number of forthcoming projects to have a solid space theme.

'Thor' sequel 'Thor: The Dark World', out in November, will be among the slated films with a cosmic slant, while it's thought that 'Iron Man 3' may also be space-bound, at least in part.

“The 'Thor' film and the 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' film certainly are cosmic, 'Guardians' and 'Thor' will take the brunt of the cosmic side of the universe, particularly 'Guardians', which is 95% in space,” Feige told SFX.

“I think 'Iron Man 3' shows the other side of Phase 2, which is delving deeper into the characters. Throwing them on a much more personal journey.”

'Guardians of the Galaxy', as well as being risky, is also among the most intriguing of Marvel's forthcoming offerings.

So far only Chris Pratt has been confirmed for the cast of intergalactic superheroes, playing Star-Lord, aka Peter Quill, a human-alien hybrid and former Nasa astronaut.

'Game of Thrones' star Jason Momoa is being mooted for the role of the Guardian known as Drax The Destroyer, while it's been reported that Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler are being courted for a role, potentially that of laser-toting mammal Rocket Raccoon.

'Super' helmsman James Gunn is directing, with the film due on August 1, 2014.
