I don't know about the director, but I *loved* the version of the team that showed up during the Thanos Imperative. Specifically Star-Lord, who is essentially nothing more than a normal human who is facing cosmic level threats with nothing more than a cool looking helmet.
I was also a big fan of the version on Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
THIS WEEK IN TV * In last week's premieres, Castle did well, but probably any show would do the same airing after Dancing With The Stars. Chopping Block did fine for a reality show, but it doesn't look like Hell's Kitchen-level ratings are in reach.
