In the months since Marvel Studios announced that Guardians of the Galaxy would be the last film before the sequel to The Avengers, it seems as if fan reaction has gone from “Who the hell are the Guardians of the Galaxy?” to “I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY!!!” A good number of the people invested in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have spent time learning about the various members of this intergalactic defense force and they’ve liked what they’ve seen. It is likely that after seeing this teaser video (released today on Marvel’s YouTube page) and its associated trailer, that interest will only continue to grow.
Though this video is less than twenty seconds long, there’s enough in here to entice the ardent Marvel fanbase. This is our first look at each of the team’s members in motion and despite the brevity of some appearances (blink and you’ll miss Rocket Raccoon), each one of them looks pretty great. Given that one of the Guardians is a living space tree, that’s quite the feat! Give the teaser a look here:
The entire trailer debuts tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, so I guess many of us (myself included) will be staying up and tuning into ABC. James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, and Benicio del Toro and debuts in theaters on August 1, 2014.
