First post of 2014. Don’t be surprised now…Â
I know it’s literally just one image, but still: I’m so up for this.
The final film in Marvel’s ‘Phase 2’ (after IRON MAN 3, THOR: THE DARK WORLD, AND CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER), GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is the last piece of the puzzle before we see AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.
It’s a risky move, but I reckon Marvel can pull it off.
Left to right: Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Peter Quill / Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), and Groot (Vin Diesel).
The official synopsis:
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team â€“ the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvelâ€™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 misfitsâ€“Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter 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 â€“ with the galaxyâ€™s fate in the balance. Marvelâ€™s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
