Guardians Of the Galaxy Director posted on Instagram the gift he received from Marvel on his birthday!!
It looks like Marvel/Disney knows how to give one heck of a GIFT!! How about the mighty power of an Infinity Gem! OK, it's not the very same one our intergalactic superstars The Guardians Of The Galaxy so valiantly fought for from the collective evils of Nebula, Ronan The Accuser and the Terror Of Titan THANOS!!
No this is a beautifully remastered replica of the orb that was featured in Gunn's blockbuster hit! The orb was a gift to James Gunn for his birthday and also most likely a thank you for the success of [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073) at the box office!
The orb is on a plaque with a placard inscribed, “That was a pretty good plan.” A famous Peter Quill line from the movie. Now how cool is that!!!
There is one major difference from the "Infinity Gem" Gunn received in his orb compared to the one in the movie. The one in the movie has a distinct purplish glow to it. The one in Gunn's orb is RED! Very curious indeed when James Gunn himself has already said on Twitter that the Gem used in the movie is The Power stone!! In the Marvel comic books the Power Infinity Gem is in fact red in color. Could the colors be off in the movie due to special effects or will it be purple since there is a the red colored element - "Aether" from Thor 2: The Dark World. Only time will tell
Happy Birthday James Gunn!! Thank you for your "Pretty Good Plan!!"
