Guardians of the Galaxy

We’ve reached that time of year when great new artwork for some of 2014’s most highly anticipated comic book movies is being revealed through the various promotional partners who will be teaming up with the studios when they’re released.

Pictured below are the Guardians of the Galaxy, the second of this year’s movies from Marvel Studios (the first being March’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Coming from Slither and Super director James Gunn, it promises to be one of the quirkiest and funniest releases of 2014, especially if that Thor: The Dark World mid-credits scene was anything to go by.

The team is made up of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel). The impressive cast also includes Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, and Benicio del Toro.

Thanks to CBM for the pictures. Guardians of the Galaxy is set to be released on August 1st, 2014. Which comic books should you read to prepare beforehand? Find out by clicking here!
