Besides a couple still images, things have been pretty quiet lately for the next installment to Marvel Studios' ever-growing cinematic universe, Guardians of the Galaxy. However, while we wait for the second theatrical trailer (and tomorrow's set visit reports) to be released, Stitch Kingdom has provided official descriptions of the dozen main characters in the James Gunn-directed space opera.

First up is Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), who is an "interstellar adventurer who was abducted from Earth at a young age. After recovering an ancient artifact, Quill must rally an unlikely team of cosmic misfits to prevent a powerful villain from destroying the galaxy." Next is the deadlist woman in the galaxy, Gamora (Zoe Saldana). She's described as an "orphan from an alien world who was raised by the mysterious Thanos to become the perfect weapon. As Thanos’ personal assassin, Gamora has earned a reputation as a formidable warrior. Gamora now seeks redemption for her past crimes." Then there is Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista)'s description: "physical brute who has a personal vendetta against Ronan, who killed his family. Now fueled by pure rage, Drax will stop at nothing to take his revenge on the most dangerous being in the galaxy." Next up is Groot (Vin Diesel), who "descends from a race of walking flora and resembles a sentient tree. Despite his strange appearance and limited communication skills, Groot proves to be a valuable ally and a loyal friend—not only to his fellow bounty hunter Rocket but to the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy as well." Rounding out the titular motley crew is of course Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), whose description describes him as a "bounty hunter and mercenary whose mastery of weapons and battle tactics make him a formidable warrior, despite being a genetically altered, cybernetically enhanced, talking raccoon. The result of traumatic biological experimentation, Rocket is a genuine gun-toting badass and mechanical genius who has a huge chip on his shoulder."
 
Regarding the main Guardians of the Galaxy villain, Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), his description seemingly reveals how the mad titan Thanos  will ultimately drive the movie's plot. "A Kree radical, Ronan continues to fight an ancient war between his people and the Xandarians. Ronan has struck a bargain with the Machiavellian Thanos — retrieve a mysterious artifact, and in exchange Xandar will finally be eradicated. Ronan leads his army to hunt down Peter Quill and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy when they come between him and his genocidal goal." Then there's the mysterious Yondu (Michael Rooker): "Blue-skinned Yondu is an interstellar bandit who has a less-than-perfect paternal relationship with Peter Quill. As leader of the outlaws known as Ravagers, Yondu and his cohorts pillage their way through the galaxy, taking whatever they want for solely their own benefit." As for the villainous Nebula (Karen Gillan), she is described as a "blue-skinned deadly assassin who is a loyal lieutenant in Ronan and Thanos’ employ. Her advanced skill set and cybernetic enhancements make her a valuable asset but her resentment of Thanos’ adoptive daughter Gamora may prove to be her Achilles heel." Korath's (Djimon Hounsou) description describes him as a "powerful ally of the villainous Ronan, is a feared intergalactic hunter. Korath is a pursuer who is dedicated to the kill and focuses only on one thing—his target."

Picking up with the other good guys, Rhomann Dey (John C. Reilly) is a "Corpsman in the Nova Corps, the planet Xandar’s military force. Dey is a loyal and trusted officer but his by-the-book attitude takes a detour when he develops an unlikely rapport with Peter Quill." Then there's Nova Prime Irani Rael (Glenn Close),  who is "in charge of Nova Corps operations throughout the galaxy. From her base of operations on Xandar, the principled and efficient Nova Prime leads her forces with confidence. She defines her mission above all to protect the citizens of Xandar and keep peace." And last, but not least, there's The Collector, aka Taneleer Tivan, whose description dubs him "the obsessive keeper of the largest collection of interstellar fauna, relics and species in the galaxy. An enigmatic figure, The Collector operates out of a place in space aptly named Knowhere. When he encounters Peter Quill and his band, The Collector attempts to strike a dubious bargain." 

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 Peter 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. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014.

Awesome. Don't like that they made ronin kill drax's family, but then again does it really matter?
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:26 PM
im glad that ronan isnt just thanos employee, he struck him a mutual agreement with him
JoJo1982 - 5/15/2014, 7:27 PM
Damn soo excited for this movie

Attached to X-men
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:27 PM
dougie-it could be ronan killed his family on thanos orders in serach for the orb and maybe drax finds that out that thanos ordered him to kill his family or something
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:28 PM

TheMadman - 5/15/2014, 7:28 PM
Hoping it'll hit when X-men does.
JoJo1982 - 5/15/2014, 7:28 PM
@dougie

Drax thinks that Ronan kill his family but he'll find out Thanos was the one
PAF - 5/15/2014, 7:28 PM
Oh God please don't let Gamora be the "Black Widow" of space with this redemption thing.
GinjaNinja - 5/15/2014, 7:28 PM
@ezio yeah true. I don't REALLY care, but I always get a little dissapointed with changes. Even though in the long run this doesn't really matter.
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:29 PM
so rhomann dey is basically space coulson...thats fine by me,i love coulson
GinjaNinja - 5/15/2014, 7:29 PM
@PAF why not? Also BW hasn't really had redemption. At least that they showed, they already was essentially redeemed.
JoJo1982 - 5/15/2014, 7:29 PM
@ezio

It has too!!!

This movie will be out in ALMOST 2 MONTHS!!!
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:30 PM
PAF-well. that is the reason she becomes a guardian in the comics
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:30 PM
GIVE ME MORE ROCKET!!!
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:32 PM
man the character descriptions sound so cool.i think this film could be the next big space adventure film..i hope it is..it has potential..i really hope this film is good
PAF - 5/15/2014, 7:34 PM
I know but Black Widow has been on the path to redemption. What I'm saying is I don't want Gamora to be written as a copy of Black Widow but just in space. I really hope Marvel doesn't do that.
GinjaNinja - 5/15/2014, 7:34 PM
Looks good enough to @ezio, question is if the general audience will catch on.
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:34 PM
i dont care whatanyone says..i loved the collector..he was so odd ,creepy, mesmerizing...it was a perfect character for del toro who is known for his weird characters etc.
Lozzy - 5/15/2014, 7:35 PM
MOVIE OF THE YEAR!!!!!!!
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:35 PM
dougie-when i watched Cap 2 twice, the trailer played both times, the first time,people seemed to dig it and the secondtime it was a mix of confusion and excitement..so yeah we will see
JoJo1982 - 5/15/2014, 7:36 PM
@PAF

I'm sorry but that's exactly how she was in the comics.

I don't want them to change just cause some ppl might thing she's a black widow copy which.shes not
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:38 PM
when te second trailer description leaked,apparently groot stole the show and rocket ws his usally psychotic self
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:40 PM
i really wanna see that rocket and groot dynamic
PAF - 5/15/2014, 7:41 PM
Let me make this clear since you gals want to get some panties in a bunch. I hope they write Gamora wtih more than just guilt for her past doings but with more hate for Thanos for what he did to her.
PAF - 5/15/2014, 7:42 PM
Us comic fans know the characters. The general audience doesn't. I don't want Marvel to fall into a trap that's all. Lord Jesus.
SuperCat - 5/15/2014, 7:43 PM
Kids are gonna love Rocket :)
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:44 PM
just tell me who is playing thanos,what if it is ....ANDY SERKIS!!
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:44 PM
DarthCMPunk - 5/15/2014, 7:49 PM
Just so u guys know I wanted to see if the second GOTG trailer was classified and found that it wasn't but the first Big Hero 6 trailer was. Have fun being the first to post it as a story lol
StarYeezus - 5/15/2014, 7:51 PM
Xandarians are the Kree's ancient enemies, as opposed to the Skrull. Disappointing, but interesting...
JoJo1982 - 5/15/2014, 7:52 PM
@PAF

Okay lol
What do u want Gamora to be then??
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:52 PM
i hope ronan and nebula are great villains,as much as i love the MCU, their villains for the most part tend to be more of an obstacle for the hero to overcome and nothing more imo,i hope Ronan ,Nebula,Thanos are great and i damn sure hope Ultron is Great!!
soforizo - 5/15/2014, 7:52 PM
It's going to be a very different CBM that's for sure.
ezio619 - 5/15/2014, 7:53 PM
starueezus-really,i did not know that, well gunn said marvel partially owned the skrulls which means the chitauri are the skrulls in this universe
HurricaneXavier - 5/15/2014, 7:53 PM
@StarYeezus

Yeah, it sucks. :( I think its because Skrulls are tied to Fantastic Four, right?
