From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “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 misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill 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 galaxy’s fate in the balance.

Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro, Guardians of the Galaxy is set to be released on August 1st.

What a waste of a scroll.

Thanx for posting!!!

Something about Ronan's chinstrap bothers the [frick] out of me.
JamesMan - 6/18/2014, 7:14 PM
Or his black chin thing. Just something about it...
staypuffed - 6/18/2014, 7:16 PM
Rocket will be the best thing about this movie.
JamesMan - 6/18/2014, 7:18 PM

lol, Ronan's not such a bad guy, he's just into some kinky shit.
Faris - 6/18/2014, 7:21 PM
Ronan looks like a pharaoh
soforizo - 6/18/2014, 7:21 PM
How much screen time Ronan gets? Any word from the early screeners?
KurtWagner1225 - 6/18/2014, 7:22 PM
i know some early reviews have said Ronan is a menacing villain,i hope that comes across on screen, also,if nothing else works about this film, atleast it will be visually spectacular,i love the colors around Knowhere, so comic booky and i love the world star lord is jumping on,it seems like something out of a 50s or 60s pulp scifi novel or something,it seems gunn atleast visually set out to do what he wanted which was to bring back the colors and vibrancy of 50s and 60s pulp scifi and mix with it a contemporary gritty world and it looks fantastic imo
DeusExSponge - 6/18/2014, 7:22 PM
Ronan's a badass, serves justice to the highest of extremes!
WYLEEJAY - 6/18/2014, 7:23 PM
So......if the Celestials exist......does that mean the cosmic abstracts do to? Death, Etc...
AlexanderLykins - 6/18/2014, 7:23 PM
Not a fan of the paint.
LittleDanglyThing - 6/18/2014, 7:24 PM
My d*** wiggles every time I see that floating celestial head.
AlexanderLykins - 6/18/2014, 7:24 PM
Still need to see him in action though.
CaptainObvious - 6/18/2014, 7:25 PM
The lack of Ronan and the other villains in the marketing isn't encouraging. Last time we got a villain that barely showed up in the marketing, we got Malekith.
Pasto - 6/18/2014, 7:28 PM
Those pics...

AlexanderLykins - 6/18/2014, 7:29 PM
I need Thanos in my life!
WYLEEJAY - 6/18/2014, 7:30 PM
You know......Eternity, Infinity, Oblivion, Galactus.......oh....damn...
MrReese - 6/18/2014, 7:31 PM
Looks sick

Pasto - 6/18/2014, 7:31 PM

WYLEEJAY - 6/18/2014, 7:31 PM
Cause Thanos is in the MCU. So his desire to appease Death should be a part of his story if she exists.
KurtWagner1225 - 6/18/2014, 7:33 PM
Alex-i like makes him seem more miliataristic since i think Pace said its suppose to be war paint,i hope ronan is a cool villain
Pasto - 6/18/2014, 7:36 PM
That might be the most graphic thing I have ever posted...
PeterDarker121 - 6/18/2014, 7:37 PM
Mothchild - 6/18/2014, 7:46 PM
Nice renders. I hope the story is good and the villain/s are strong.
DeusExSponge - 6/18/2014, 7:47 PM
121 - That's adorable! Yet creepy at the same time.

Just imagine the raccoon saying:
"Hey let me in! I'm a fairy!!!"
KurtWagner1225 - 6/18/2014, 8:02 PM
i have heard that Korath doesnt have much screentime in the film and that john c reilly and glenn close have minor roles in the film
SidDaAstroSloth - 6/18/2014, 8:06 PM
I like Ronan's war paint
Hulksta - 6/18/2014, 8:07 PM
PeterDarker121 - 6/18/2014, 8:10 PM
@Deus lol Yeah...I like that one but it freaks me out! Gunn's FB page has a lot of dope GOTG related fan made pics and posters...

xcan - 6/18/2014, 8:10 PM
Man, my chub-o-meter keeps dropping for this movie. After seeing that UK trailer in the other thread the meter has dropped from a 90% to 69.

Slight pun intended, but I can't see this doing much more than 500 WW if even hitting that number.
XF14 - 6/18/2014, 8:13 PM
Ugh. Ronan's stupid painted chinstrap is just so awful. Doesnt push me away as a whole but ... certainly cant take him seriously when the design is just so stupid.
Ramiel - 6/18/2014, 8:50 PM
I have a feeling that Ronan and Nebula aren't going to be great villains. I hope I am wrong though.
BlindJustice - 6/18/2014, 11:56 PM
Great pics...and yes, MORE NEBULA PLEASE!!! We really haven't seen much of her and from what I hear, she's our connection to Thanos in this movie.

Or at least 1 of them.
jimoakley666 - 6/19/2014, 12:59 AM
Bit of a missed opportunity with that Celestial head. Could have done something REALLY Kirby there. Instead it just looks like a giant barnacle covered skull.
dellamorte1872 - 6/19/2014, 4:00 AM
I already feel like partsof RONANs actually WILL be cut like MALEKITH in THOR TDW. I mean similar to abandoning screen time for MAL in favor of more elaboration on the LOKI/THOR relationship I can see GOTG going a similar route choosing to highlight the Guardians group dynamic as opposed to the villains. I can honestly see this film getting a hack edited job much like THOR 2
dellamorte1872 - 6/19/2014, 4:03 AM
THOR 2 if left as is woulda been fantastic instead of just a mundane statement like good. Def better than IRON MAN 3 so hopefully each film in this phase learns through the hard lessons these other productions had
