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.

Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. James Gunn is the director and the story is by Nicole Perlman and James Gunn, with screenplay by James Gunn. It releases in U.S. theaters on August 1, 2014.

love this kind of stuff. Gamora looks as though she was based on someone else other than Saldana
CookieKid247 - 8/14/2014, 10:39 AM
Change Gamora's design in the sequel. She looked too much like Saldana to me and it took me out of the movie a little.
JoshuaGraham - 8/14/2014, 10:39 AM
These alternate designs look so much better then what they chose for the movie.
pesmerga44 - 8/14/2014, 10:40 AM
The Starlord and Nova Corp members concept art look amazing Gamora is the only one I really don't like.
Batmaniac - 8/14/2014, 10:41 AM
The Star-Lord art is awesome!
TChalla - 8/14/2014, 10:41 AM
I like them Ronan designs. They look more menacing!
SpiderFraud - 8/14/2014, 10:41 AM
The Star-Lord and Nova designs should have been in the movie.
JoshuaGraham - 8/14/2014, 10:41 AM
@CookieKid247
I don't think Gamora really had a 'design' in the movie, she just looked like Saldana painted green.
Pasto - 8/14/2014, 10:42 AM
Noice.
OneBadDay - 8/14/2014, 10:44 AM
That second or third Star-Lord design would have been PERFECT! It also kind of looks like they had planned to do a CGI Ronan before, because he looks MASSIVE in these concepts.
SpiderFraud - 8/14/2014, 10:44 AM
I'm a little bit disappointed. These designs are far better than what we got in the movie (other than the Rocket and Groot ones).

Still love the movie regardless, though.
MrSuperheromoviefan - 8/14/2014, 10:45 AM
I would like hd pictures
MrBlackjack - 8/14/2014, 10:45 AM
Star-Lord better have that helmet in GOTG 2!
CookieKid247 - 8/14/2014, 10:45 AM
@JoshuaGraham
That's what I didn't like about it. I love Gamora's concept art and want to see that in GOTG 2.
ALegendaryPanda - 8/14/2014, 10:46 AM
I gotta be honest, Star Lord and The Nova corps look a lot cooler here than they did in the movie.
shabat - 8/14/2014, 10:46 AM
@CookieKid247

Yes, but her booty shots brought me right back in.
JoshuaGraham - 8/14/2014, 10:46 AM
@MrBlackjack
Thor is still waiting for his.
MrCBM56 - 8/14/2014, 10:47 AM
I NEED TO GET THIS.
Dingbat - 8/14/2014, 10:47 AM
WOW! Starlord could have looked like that instead of this...


I hope the Guardians get some awesome uniforms in the 2nd one.
DrDoom - 8/14/2014, 10:47 AM

kinghulk - 8/14/2014, 10:49 AM

TheAbaryMan369 - 8/14/2014, 10:49 AM
The Star Lord ones are amazing, the others however aren't as good...
SpiderFraud - 8/14/2014, 10:49 AM
Everybody needs to bomb the crap out of James Gunn on Twitter, to make sure he uses that Star-Lord outfit in GotG2.
MrCBM56 - 8/14/2014, 10:49 AM
I love the movie, but there were definitely better designs for Nova Corps, Gamora, and Star lord.
MrBlackjack - 8/14/2014, 10:49 AM
@MrCBM56
MrBlackjack - 8/14/2014, 10:50 AM
@JoshuaGraham
Shit! They both need their helmets!
kinghulk - 8/14/2014, 10:52 AM

SageMode - 8/14/2014, 10:53 AM
Those Star-Lord alternates....wow.
JredTheRed - 8/14/2014, 10:53 AM

Gusto - 8/14/2014, 10:54 AM
Grif, did you buy this yet????
TheRationalNerd - 8/14/2014, 10:55 AM
Concept art always looks better than the final product! Star Lord's helmet is sex in those pics above. Perhaps they'll save it for the sequel.
kinghulk - 8/14/2014, 10:55 AM
i hope we get to see the starlord designs in the sequel. i want to see him wear his helmet.
TChalla - 8/14/2014, 10:56 AM
"If I wanted you to talk I would've stuck my hand up ya ass and worked ya mouth like a puppet! You hear me!"
CookieKid247 - 8/14/2014, 10:56 AM
@shabat
Zoe's ass is okay but I'd much rather see that nude scene we were promised in the trailer!
MrCBM56 - 8/14/2014, 10:56 AM

LMAO!
CookieKid247 - 8/14/2014, 10:57 AM
@MrCBM56
That has to be the greatest Sam Jackson quote ever.
MrCBM56 - 8/14/2014, 10:59 AM
@CookieKid247 Haha agreed
InfiniteMonkey - 8/14/2014, 11:00 AM
Freaking Ronan looks awesome!

Instead we got a pussified one. WoW! The logic.
