Are you ready for Guardians of the Galaxy? This is not your normal team of superheroes, but they are some of the coolest guys in the… erm… galaxy! You’ve got this guy named Star-Lord (kinda pictured above) who’s half-alien leading the team, a genetically engineered raccoon with some mad gun skills named Rocket Raccoon, a living, walking tree named Groot, a muscleman armed with a knife named Drax the Destroyer, and an assassin from a pretty much extinct race, Gamora.
In any case, not much about the movie has been known, but we do have some clue on what the concept is about:
Guardians takes place within the continuity of the [other movies] but it’s on the other side of the universe,” Feige says. “We’ve always wanted to do a space movie. I’m obsessed with Star Wars, I’m obsessed with Star Trek.
The movie is set to arrive in theaters beginning August 1, 2014 and will serve as part of Marvel’s Phase Two series of movies.
