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

Looks good.

@McNyagano
Did they take any liberties with Thanos' look? Or will we all be happy.
MrBlackjack - 7/6/2014, 4:41 PM
He looks [frick]ing weird...
MrBlackjack - 7/6/2014, 4:41 PM
That poster is cool too!
Superior - 7/6/2014, 4:44 PM
I'm kind of glad they didn't give him that humongous fin. It wouldn't have gone with Rooker's look so well.
MarvelFan15 - 7/6/2014, 4:47 PM
Yondu looks swell. And, that poster still has me faithful in believing that Guardians will be. Marvel's next billion dollar hit.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/6/2014, 4:50 PM
Mcnyagano-good,he is one of the characters im looking forward to in the film,i like his look in the film, Gunn said he used the comics as the seeds from which he could create something that remained true to the spirit of the comics but also felt unique and fresh on its own
EzioKenway1225 - 7/6/2014, 4:51 PM
mcnyagano-what type of personality does Yondu have in the film?
NovaCorpsFan - 7/6/2014, 4:54 PM
I saw those Guardians HeroClix thing and Yondu's one is holding what looked like an arrow. It was a yellow pointed stick anyway. Here its:


JordanKing - 7/6/2014, 4:55 PM
@McNyagano Are you able to say where you would rank it compared it other MCU movies? Is it in the Top 3?
Superior - 7/6/2014, 4:55 PM
And before people start asking off the top question, can everyone ask these questions to McNy through inbox or something.
JamesMan - 7/6/2014, 4:56 PM
Every time I see Yondu all I see is a big toe.

SuperCat - 7/6/2014, 4:57 PM
I can dig it.

Maven - 7/6/2014, 4:58 PM
@JamesMan

You sure it's not just everytime you see Rooker?
EzioKenway1225 - 7/6/2014, 4:59 PM
i really want to see how Star Lord and Yondu relationship is like since Yondu is suppose to be his mentor or father figure in a way
DarthCMPunk - 7/6/2014, 5:04 PM
@Superior why ask him anything? James Gunn himself said he saw the review and said there's no way he saw the film.
CaptainSporty - 7/6/2014, 5:06 PM
He looks like hes wearing poo on his head
JamesMan - 7/6/2014, 5:07 PM
@Maven

Nah, every time I see Rooker I think of Mallrats.

TheAbaryMan369 - 7/6/2014, 5:12 PM
He looks like a video game character, and his Mohawk looks metallic.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/6/2014, 5:13 PM
Mcnyagano-now u said iron man 3, here come the people who say your opinion is not valid because of that..smh..anyay ..im just happy its a good movie from what u have said
EzioKenway1225 - 7/6/2014, 5:14 PM
Mcnyagano-i think its good that u wanted more of him instead of less of him..that means he didnt annoy u or anything
EzioKenway1225 - 7/6/2014, 5:17 PM
mcnyagano-awesome,i would love that but how do i find your email?
MrMartinMarvel - 7/6/2014, 5:19 PM
Eh, I don't like it. I don't see Yondu, I just see Michael Rooker with blue paint all over his face.
Superior - 7/6/2014, 5:24 PM
@DarthMCPunk

Holy shit, when?
MrReese - 7/6/2014, 5:25 PM
S**t just got real
EzioKenway1225 - 7/6/2014, 5:25 PM
MrMartinMarvel-Rooker does have a distinguishable face.. he didnt look like Yondu to me at all when he was cast so i was initally surprised but then i found out Yondu wasnt even in the original draft of the script before Gunn rewrote it and so when he rewrote it, he put in Yondu and wrote him with Rooker in mind
EzioKenway1225 - 7/6/2014, 5:26 PM
Mcnyagano-i did , didnt get anything from u yet
EzioKenway1225 - 7/6/2014, 5:27 PM
mcnyagano-i will be back,i gotta go for half an hour or so
EzioKenway1225 - 7/6/2014, 5:29 PM
Mcnyagano-ok i will, talk to ya in a bit
Phronesis - 7/6/2014, 5:30 PM
Not at all impressed. Nothing like Yondu. So boring.
batz11 - 7/6/2014, 5:31 PM
@Nova that looks like a giant, yellow dildo in his hand, wtf, lol...
csdot - 7/6/2014, 5:33 PM
Why are people acting like a Yondu is a big reveal? he was the first character from the movie we saw and in great detail
batz11 - 7/6/2014, 5:34 PM
So is @Darth claiming McNyagano hasn't actually seen the film?
MexicanChinman - 7/6/2014, 5:43 PM
Shit make-up. I hope the aliens look better on screen.
NovaCorpsFan - 7/6/2014, 5:49 PM
@batz

I know, it's one of those types of action figures.
Pasto - 7/6/2014, 5:50 PM
@MrReese
That moment when shit got real...
xfan320 - 7/6/2014, 5:59 PM
Honestly, it looks like his fin could pop up to like a Mohawk 'Savage Dragon'-style... You can kinda make out ridges in his fin possibly allowing for segmentation...
DeusExSponge - 7/6/2014, 6:03 PM
First time I saw Michael Rooker in a movie was Mississippi Burning. Damn was he one hell of an villain in that one!
DarthCMPunk - 7/6/2014, 6:10 PM
@Superior if you look on the comment section of the Facebook post that he did when he talked about Vin Diesel's reaction to watching the film with his family he tells someone that mentioned it that.
batz11 - 7/6/2014, 6:21 PM
Here it is, from Gunn's FB:

Cody:
Someone who said they seen the movie said Groot was the only Guardian they were meh on. But the more I hear from James and Vin the more I think Groot is gonna be amazing and that guy is wrong! (Hell he could be lying he's seen it anyways lol)

Gunn:
Cody Crawford I've read that "review" you read and I can assure you that guy definitely has not seen the movie.

Some other dude chimed in:
Cody Crawford are you referring in the comicbookmovie.com review?

Cody:
Yea mcnyago


Well, Gunn never confirmed it was McNyagano's, so who knows...
