Meet the Guardians Of The Galaxy

Following the launch of the recent trailer for James Gunn's (Super) Guardians Of The Galaxy, Marvel have launched five new character promos, in which each of the cast members talk about their respective Guardian.

First up, Gunn and Bradley Cooper talk about Rocket Raccoon, in which we also get to hear a sample of his voice work. There's also Vin Diesel explaining how strange Groot is – sadly, we don't get any snippets of his voice – as well as Dave Bautista talking about Drax The Destroyer, Chris Pratt on Peter Quill, also known as. Star-Lord, and Zoe Saldana on deadly assassin Gamora.

With Marvel gambling that less comic book savvy audiences have been primed by the likes of Iron Man and Thor to accept more out-there concepts, Guardians sends us hurtling into deep space to meet a very different gang of heroes. Well, we say heroes... We're introduced to American pilot Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), who finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing a mysterious stolen McGuffin orb coveted by the villainous Ronan (Lee Pace).

Whilst in a prison, he meets an unusual suspects line-up of aliens including deadly green-skinned assassin Gamora (Zoe Saldana), hulking warrior Drax The Destroyer (Dave Bautista), talking tree Groot (Vin Diesel) and gruff warrior Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper).

With a walking, talking, gun-toting Raccoon. A tree man. And Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun Of The Dead) working alongside John C. Reilly (Step Brothers), this is the wild world distilled from the Guardians comics by writer/director James Gunn – and it's shaping up to be a whole lot of fun.

With Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), Benicio Del Toro (Savages), Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond), Michael Rooker (Super) and Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs) rounding out the cast, Guardians Of The Galaxy arrives on 1 August.
