On the calendar, Guardians of the Galaxy is the Marvel Cinematic Universe film that immediately precedes next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. That might lead some to think the new characters in James Gunn‘s sci-fi action film will appear alongside Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and the rest in May. Well, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige long ago crushed those hopes, saying Guardians of the Galaxy was almost totally its own story.
This is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though. It’s all connected. Thanos, who appeared in The Avengers, finally reappears in Guardians and those Infinity Gems that have been carefully placed all across the films, likely do too. Now, the writer and director of Guardians of the Galaxy has just made everything nice and simple. He’s confirmed what we’d all assumed: Guardians of the Galaxy will tie into Avengers 3. Read More »

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.

After years of anticipation, the first trailer for Marvel’s new cosmic superhero movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, finally hit Tuesday night. And as expected, it’s pretty awesome.

They give you a chance to get a closer look at several characters including Groot (Vin Diesel), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), Nebula (Karen Gillan), The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) and others.

The first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer is set to premiere later tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but we have the very first footage from the film this morning in the form of a 15-second teaser. In it, Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou) asks the question that’s been on the minds of moviegoers the world over since the moment this film was announced: “Who are you?”
The Guardians never quite get around to answering the question, presumably because they’ll be doing so in the full trailer this evening, but we do get some big shiny explosions and glimpses of the star-studded cast — which includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista – in action. Watch the video after the jump.
