Marvel release first Guardians image and synopsis
The first official picture from Guardians of the Galaxy has been released.
The film’s director James Gunn tweeted earlier today that the image is a very early still from the movie, and is very similar to the concept art put out by Marvel following the official cast announcement at Comic Con.
The image shows (from left to right) Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, and Groot who will be voiced by Vin Diesel.
In addition to the still, the official synopsis for the movie has also been revealed;
“From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchise 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.”
Guardians of the Galaxy releases on August 1.
