A few days ago, Marvel posted pictures on their twitter for Guardians of the Galaxy. One of the pictures was this:
This is not a new appearance, as I wrote an article about how this could be Ego the Living Planet. We have seen this a lot before, so you might wonder why I’m writing about it. Marvel added a caption, identifying the image as Knowhere.
Knowhere is a observatory or portal in deep space. It is used nowadays as the base of operations for the current Guardians of the Galaxy. So it’s possible that the movie is including it as a home base, just as the Avengers have their own Avengers Tower.
There is also the rumor that this place does not serve as the Guardian’s headquarters, but rather as the Collector’s headquarters.
Truthfully, I don’t know enough about it to make a steady call. It’s clear now that this is Knowhere, but it is still unclear what roll it will play in the film. For now, only time will tell.
