Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t really look like anything that’s come before it in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s a good thing for those of us eager to see Marvel branch out, but a potential WTF for those who take comfort in Marvel’s reliability and consistency.
So a new Guardians of the Galaxy featurette tries to encourage those in the latter camp to join the former. Producer Kevin Feige and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper promise the film will “blow you away with how unique it is,” while still reassuring viewers that it’s part of the same old MCU. Watch it after the jump.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens this weekend, and then all eyes turn to the skies. That’s where James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy takes place: in deep, deep space. There, an Earth-born transplant named Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) will be arrested and meet four other crazy creatures to form a formidable team to fight Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace). Those allies are Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel). And if that plot sounds a little thin, that’s because the film doesn’t open until August 1 and Marvel has been pretty tight lipped about it. We’ll surely learn more soon, though, as it becomes the primary focus in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A few weeks back, we saw the teaser poster for Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, the character elements from that poster have been uploaded as large, individual images. Each offers a great opportunity to check out the detailed designs of each of the main characters. Check out some Guardians of the Galaxy photos below. Read More »
