Bad Guys Get Their Own 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Posters Now Too

Just yesterday, Michael Rooker got his own Guardians of the Galaxy character poster as the blue-skinned character Yondu. Shortly after, John C. Reilly and Glenn Close saw their characters from Nova Corps get the same treatment. And today, it's a trio of bad guys who each get their own character poster. There's Lee Pace as the main villain Ronan (who is being puppeted by Thanos), Karen Gillan as Nebula (who is a descendant of Thanos) and Djimon Housou as Korath (who we've seen dealing with Star-Lord in the trailers). That should be it for character posters, unless Thanos ends up getting his own sheet. Look!
Here's the three new character posters for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy from IGN:
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.

The Falcon will be the new Captain America this fall. I don't mind it so much,being multiple-racial growing up with mostly white heroes have never bothered me, for I believe that the beauty of comics is that anyone can be Batman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman and so on. I love that Marvel recognizes that this world is rapidly changing and they need to reach out to all types of fans and capture new readers as well. I will pick this up along with Thor, and add it to my Mighty Avengers, Ms.Marvel, Black Widow and my Image Comics, which are so much cooler cause of their freedom, but we know it's temporary with Captain America 3 coming out May 2016, so I will welcome the New Cap, while also look forward in Marvel and DC hopefully create new characters in their Universe that can be a fixtures for a long time as they are doing with the new Ms. Marvel, Batwoman and the Ultimate Spider-Man. It's sad that people still freak out over race, religion or sexual orientation in this day and age. Grow up, ordinary is boring.
