It’s not easy being the guardians of the galaxy. Especially when you gave yourself that name and everyone just thinks you’re “a bunch of a-holes.” Sort of like how Star Lord (aka Peter Quill) goes around calling himself Star Lord, such as in this first clip from James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.” I mean, guy gets no respect. Fortunately, he seems to have some skills, so who knows, maybe the name is deserving.
Also, check out some new images featuring the roster of guardians recently released by Marvel. I gotta say, Star Lord’s mask is cool. I gotta get me that for Halloween.
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, and Benicio del Toro.
