The first official Guardians of the Galaxy image has been released with actual members of the cast. What is awesome is that this photo is an almost duplicate of an original piece of concept art that Disney and Marvel released for the big 2014 comic book adaptation.
So, what we see here is Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Rocket Racoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Drax the Destroyer (Batista) and Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel).
We also have a plot summary of the movie, which includes talk of the Infinity Gauntlet, which was introduced in dialogue in the 2013 Marvel movie Thor: The Dark World.
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team–the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’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 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 – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
