Detroit has a close connection with the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie. Marvel Comics veterans Jim Starlin and Al Milgrom both graduated from Berkley High School in 1967. Starlin’s most recognizable character, Stanos, first appeared on-screen in 2014s “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Even at age 67, Starlin is still creating comics. In fact, his newest comic, “Guardians of the Galaxy: Mother Entropy,” is set to be released this weekend to coincide with the new movie.

Disney shareholders have high hopes for the new movie at the box office. The original “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie was the third highest-grossing movie of 2014 in the United States, taking in a whopping $333.1 million.
