In a still that mimics the concept art that popped up at Comic-Con earlier this summer, the first official photo from Marvel's cosmic superhero ensemble Guardians of the Galaxy has arrived. This was actually a funny scene in the footage shown in Hall H earlier this summer, where the ragtag team of space misfits were gathered for some unknown reason. We finally get a look at the fully rendered versions of Rocket Racoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Groot (voice by Vin Diesel) along with heavily made-up Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, with Chris Pratt being the most normal looking one in the bunch. Look!
Here's the first look at James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy from Marvel (click for large version):
Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). 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 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. The Marvel Studios film arrives in theaters August 1st, 2014.
