You're Welcome: The First Poster for Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

It's been a week full of Guardians of the Galaxy hype from the first fantastic trailer that was released on Tuesday to today's featurettes showing off Bradley Cooper voicing Rocket Raccoon and Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Vin Diesel talking about their wild space superhero characters from the forthcoming Marvel film. Now it seems the hype machine is finally slowing down with the first official poster landing, showing off the galactic misfits looking like a group of bad asses on some alien planet. The whole deal is sealed by that awesome tagline, not to mention Marvel name-dropping their own franchises.
Here's the first official poster for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy from Marvel:
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.

I hope they run into Captain Kirk whilst in space so he can get into Gamora's pants.

I wonder if they'll bump into Fry and the gang from Futurama ;P

I love the tagline "You're welcome"...every bit of this movie is fully on board with that type of snarky, egotistical tone. The main character named HIMSELF "Star Lord"...that's the kind of movie we are getting, and it seems to be shaping up to be a damn fun time at the movies

You just gotta love the "Obscene gesture imminent" read out from the trailer.

Looks very 80's like a throwback to small time sci-fi blockbusters along the lines of Critters, Last Starfighter, or Flight of the Navigator. Methinks good things lie ahead.

I prefered the image of them all lined up in handcuffs. Looked more intriguing than this typical ho-hum image.
