First Look: The Ragtag 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Team All Lined Up

December 31, 2013

Guardians of the Galaxy

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

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'm not completely sure who these people are... I hope they do a good job introducing us to this team.

Zoe Saldana: Ohura in new Star Trek films Bradley Cooper: The Hangover Trilogy, Limitless, The A-Team Dave Bautista: WWE's Batista Vin Diesel; REALLY ?! Chris Pratt: This is actually his 'big break', but he has been a supporting actor in movies like Moneyball and Jennifer's Body.

I think he means the characters not the actors…

Honestly I would think Pratts big break was Parks and Recreation. Zero Dark Thirty as well.

Brian Sleider on Jan 1, 2014


Same for me, no idea who these characters are. A raccoon with a rocket? Come on... I can digg some ridiculous stuff when it comes to superhero movies, but this...

Nash on Jan 1, 2014


I think I will like the movie, but I also think it will not do well.

Brian Sleider on Dec 31, 2013


This is going to me awesome!! Trust me, as a reader of the whole series, this will be great under Gunn's direction. The books felt like a mix of marvel heros in a Star Wars universe.

Nick M. on Dec 31, 2013


It looks utterly ridiculous...but in the best way possible. I believe Jupiter Ascending and this will be a nice one-two punch of 'space fantasy'

Righteous! Now just waiting on that first trailer...

Starlord looks way too plain. Looks like he bought his clothes on Earth.

Meh on Dec 31, 2013


Isn't Star-Lord FROM Earth though?

lewinston on Jan 1, 2014


Abducted from Earth as a kid. So unless the aliens picked up clothes for him too from Earth... this looks indeed quite underwhelming.

Victor on Jan 2, 2014


Abducted from earth? Not sure where you got that? Peter Quill was born on earth to a human mother and the emperor of the Spartoi empire. He became an astronaut as an adult and received the mantle of Star Lord thereafter.

My have it

Micheal Kinane on Dec 31, 2013


This looks awesome. I hope it turns out as great as I know it could be.

IamSlave on Jan 1, 2014


I see some originality in Groot Character shape and that's special gesture for me. Something DECENT & DESTRUCTIVE is in (him or it??). When i mix him with voice of Vin that would be more effective either. Zoe is my second favourite.

Ehsan Davodi on Jan 1, 2014


This looks disturbingly meh.

Charlie Hard on Jan 1, 2014


Wished they gave us something else as eye candy, but oh well, I am still excited about this Marvel adventure in space.

mooreworthy on Jan 1, 2014


They look awesome

David Diaz on Jan 2, 2014


I wonder if RR is gonna go through someones garbage in the movie.
