First official cast image and full plot synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy

Dec. 31, 2013by:

After months of low resolution images and summaries based on comics and cobbled together quotes from the cast and crew, we now have our first official image of the cast of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY along with the full synopsis for the movie. Ending speculation and theories, we now know just what Peter Quill and his intergalactic cohorts will be up to this Summer.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new teamthe Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvels 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 misfitsRocket, 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 galaxys fate in the balance.

The image above (click here for a bigger version) is one we have seen variations of in press materials since the movie began filming and is visible at the close of the teaser shown at Comic Con, but seeing it in gorgeous high resolution just makes it seem even cooler than before. Plus, now from the synopsis we know that Ronan will be the primary villain. There is no mention of the secondary villains and heroes played by Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, or Benicio Del Toro.

Whatever the case, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is shaping up to be a kick ass flip to the positive heroes of THE AVENGERS. Stay tuned for the teaser trailer featuring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, John C Reilly, Glenn Close, Lee Pace, and the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY opens on August 1, 2014.

Still very much looking forward to this but that part about a 'mysterious orb' has me worried. Sounds like the same old tired shit from the other films.

I would wager that the 'mysterious orb' is an Infinity Gem. Time gem maybe?

Ummmm....

Wait, what? Is this image from a video game?
Obviously I'm in the minority here, and you all can rock out with your down-thumb out, but I feel that the quality of that image is pretty weak and cheesy. I'm really looking forward to this movie, but if what is being represented here is the look and feel of the movie, I'm suddenly having a little doubt. I mean, it actually looks like it was taken from a video game that's about 1-3 years old, give or take.

OzCueball beat me to the Usual suspects comment! Really like the designs for all the characters and I like how Rocket Raccoon has his arms folded in defiance here.

I'm going in knowing nothing but the basics when it comes to Guardians but I'm really digging this picture and all I'm hearing about the sets.

I hope this clicks with the GA

I really hope it is a hit, and we get a new fresh but familiar franchise

Looks pretty badass to me. Before Marvel started Phase 1, I was among the nonbelievers. I thought Thor could never be made into a legitimate movie. I thought Captain America would look hokey on screen, etc etc. Oh how naive and idiotic I was. These guys have built a brand much like the ways Pixar has done, and I imagine this foray will prove successful for them as well
