If you love to obsess over pointless minutia, this article will make your day.
One of the great things about the 24 hours comics news cycle is that websites, in a never-ending quest to pull in more and more unique hits before hundreds of indistinguishable competitors do, will latch onto any detail about any project even tangentially related to comic books, no matter how tiny and insignificant, and make what we in the industry like to call "a huge fucking deal" out of it. The latest obsession comes from a discovery of Guardians of the Galaxy call sheets by ComicBookMovie. The sheets reveal two very vague scenes that take place in Guardians of the Galaxy, from which your more astute nerds can extrapolate all kinds of information:
Taking place on the exterior of an Xandar Mall, the first bit involves, “Peter Quill leaving Bereet, then flirting with Ti Asha on his way to a Broker's Shop,” while the second follows, “Rocket Raccoon's vid shield Point-of-View of Peter Quill, Bereet and Ti Asha.”
CBM then goes into a two paragraph analysis of what this means: Xandar is the home of the Nova Corps, Ti Asha is a member of the Korbonite race that created Beta Ray Bill, Bereet is a character associated with the Hulk, and Peter Quill has something to sell at a broker, which CBM wildly speculates is the Inifnity Gems, which makes a lot of sense, because if we had in our possession a bunch of magic cosmic jewels that could control the entire universe, the first thing we think of is how much we could pawn them for.
So if you're a big fan of Bereet or Ti Asha, I guess you're probably losing your shit right now. For everyone else, well, sorry for wasting two minutes of your time with this article. You could have read like three Bendis books in that span.
