“Who are the Guardians of the Galaxy?” While the first trailer for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy did a great job of introducing us to Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel), even the most hardcore of comic book fans would admit to not being overly familiar with the ragtag team.

A lot is revealed in this preview of the Marvel Studios movie, but equally as much is left for the next trailer (there’s no sign of Lee Pace’s Ronan the Accuser, Michael Rooker’s Yondu or Glenn Close’s Nova Prime for example). However, there’s still an awful lot for fans and non-fans alike to sink their teeth into, and we explain the ten most noteworthy moments in details for you right here!

10. Another Infinity Stone?


Remember the mid-credits scene of Avengers Assemble? That was Thanos, and it’s highly likely that we’ll be seeing him again in Guardians of the Galaxy. With Thor: The Dark World’s own stinger revealing that both that and the Aether are two of the Infinity Stones, the villain is surely still on the hunt for the rest. Based on the synopsis for this movie (“When Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos…”), many fans now believe that the object spotted at the beginning – in a temple which very much has a Raiders of the Lost Ark vibe to it – is another of the stones.

It’s likely that the villain will get his hands on them all in time for The Avengers 3, meaning he’ll have The Infinity Gauntlet, a weapon so powerful that the movie will see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes assemble alongside Star-Lord and his allies for an epic finale to Marvel’s Phase Three plans!
