According to Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, who had no idea Disney was releasing it, the image above is from a very early stage and the visual effects have since been improved. “Okay, so I suppose Disney released this still from Guardians of the Galaxy,” he commented. “It was featured in the San Diego Comicon trailer, and is an early (truthfully, quite unfinished - we've come a long way from here) look at Rocket and Groot, Star-Lord, Gamora, and Drax.” Bold move, Disney. An official Guardians of the Galaxy synopsis was also released. What do you think?

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 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. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

"Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb..."

It's an Infinity Gem.

JGAR - 12/31/2013, 1:10 PM
Looks awesome, but don't get your hopes very high, I can't believe some people are saying that this looks better than The Avengers did.
ShadowPimp723 - 12/31/2013, 1:10 PM
I really don't like the way Gamora looks
ALegendaryPanda - 12/31/2013, 1:10 PM

McNyagano - 12/31/2013, 1:11 PM
I feel like we're getting a trailer very soon. :D
JGAR - 12/31/2013, 1:12 PM
Gamora looks hot, reminds me of Rihanna.
MrCBM56 - 12/31/2013, 1:12 PM
McNy

Probably with the super-bowl then an extended look on Facebook like they always do.
GuardianAngel - 12/31/2013, 1:12 PM
[frick]ing Marvel ripping off their own shit!

Like, be original! Right?
Omarvls - 12/31/2013, 1:13 PM
As a ComicBookMovie Junkie especially anything that has to do with both Marvel and DC/WB I truly hope this is good and that it does blockbuster numbers cause that would mean Adam Warlock movie and a Green Lantern reboot
JordanKing - 12/31/2013, 1:13 PM
YES! Nice find DCMarvel
Owlman88 - 12/31/2013, 1:13 PM
I want to see Ronan!!!
dancingmonkey08 - 12/31/2013, 1:13 PM
well what a fine beginning to the new year

thank you Iron Man, Thor, Kick-Ass, Superman and Wolverine for a fine 2013 (Thor was easily my favourite, The Wolverine was good but my least favourite)

but as this perfectly timed picture has reminded us, its 2014 now. BRING ON CAPTAIN AMERICA, X-MEN, SPIDER-MAN AND THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (screw it, Ill throw the TMNT in there too, even though I dont have much faith in it)

Happy New Year everybody!
McNyagano - 12/31/2013, 1:14 PM
@MrCBM56

Yeah, you're probably right. Can't wait!!
Omarvls - 12/31/2013, 1:14 PM
btw
Drax and Groot look AMAZING
It allows me to forget the horrible Collector look
charlie2094 - 12/31/2013, 1:14 PM
Probably get a trailer around the Superbowl, if not later. Cap 2 will get a second trailer first probably

Looks good! Groot looks great! Trying not to get too excited, feel Marvel dropped the ball with IM3, AoS and especially Thor 2, but really enjoyed the Guardians run this is based on, so hopefully this and Cap are an improvement
Starkasm - 12/31/2013, 1:14 PM
