But for some reason, won’t tell us what it’s about. Or even give a short plot description. Or a blurb. Nothing at all. I mean, come on, Marvel, stop playing games, man!

Oh well. At least they told us the full cast list, which includes Chris Pratt as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Djimon Hounsou as Korath, Benicio del Toro as The Collector, John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, and Glenn Close as Nova Prime.

The film is currently shooting at UK’s Shepperton Studios, with James Gunn directing from his own script, based on a story by he and Nicole Perlman.

The intergalactic film opens August 1, 2014.
