In 2012, Marvel Studios brought together six of Earth’s mightiest heroes to stop an alien invasion from taking over the planet in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. In 2014, they will be bringing together a very different kind of team, namely the motley crew of delinquents you see in the image above. May I present to you the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax The Destroyer, Groot and Rocket Raccoon are characters that even regular comic book readers aren’t all too familiar with, but the look of the movie inspires a lot of research. Directed by James Gunn -- a Troma Entertainment alum whose previous credits include Slither and Super -- the big space adventure looks incredibly odd and totally different than anything Marvel has done thus far (just ask anybody who saw the footage at San Diego Comic-Con or D23 this past summer).

What’s more, it has one of the most fascinating casts that the studio has put together yet. Even beyond the ensemble of leads – which includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and both Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel in voice roles – the supporting cast is crazy packed with talent, featuring Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Peter Serafinowicz and Gregg Henry. I’m extremely excited for Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier this year as well, but it’s Guardians of the Galaxy that really has my attention, and I can’t wait until August to see it.

Release Date: August 1, 2014
