Visual effects studio, MPC (Moving Picture Company), have released a ton of concept art that their team of artists created for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Hit the jump to see alternate designs for props, vehicles, sets as well as key frame art.


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.

How many movies do you know of where an actual main character dies? Not many...
MrBlackJack - 8/27/2014, 8:02 PM
@Gandhi LMAO!
batz11 - 8/27/2014, 8:02 PM

That's okay, I didn't need to sleep tonight.
Dingbat - 8/27/2014, 8:04 PM

huh, that's true

Ineedrevelation - 8/27/2014, 8:06 PM
Dammit Gandhi here you are again bestowing your endless knowledge to mere mortals
DodgerNYC - 8/27/2014, 8:10 PM

Amazing Spider-Man 2: Gwen dies, really :)
NolanMarek - 8/27/2014, 8:12 PM
@MrBlackjack that had to have been the one part that gave me that scared the poop out of me
GuardianAngel - 8/27/2014, 8:12 PM

Holy shit I never thought of that. That still doesn't take away from the quakity of the films, but its's very interesting.
BlacktinAmerica - 8/27/2014, 8:14 PM
@Gandhi TDK Gordan dies, but not really,TDKR Batman dies, but not really,MOS Jor-El dies, but not really.This is just how comics are ,and always will be.
batz11 - 8/27/2014, 8:14 PM
Wise one you are Gandhi...

DaVinci31 - 8/27/2014, 8:14 PM

Rulk - 8/27/2014, 8:16 PM
@Gandhi - Gandhi died in the 1940's... yet here YOU are...

You would think you never read a comic book. Everyone dies, but not really. Sheesh... DC trolls are really scraping the bottom of the tank trying to find complaints with the MCU while they wait another year and a half for BvS.
Rulk - 8/27/2014, 8:20 PM
MCU haters after Guardians of the Galaxy was a success...

BlacktinAmerica - 8/27/2014, 8:24 PM
@Gandhi yeah because a dead character can have full conversations with his son and help lois lane escape a ship though he was only programmed to give information about krypton.also Ra's/Liam Neeson doesn't die on screen until the end and is never brought back.
TheAstoundingMan - 8/27/2014, 8:29 PM
I know it's only concept art, but the gem Star-Lord is holding appears to be red. Did they change it during filming because of the Aether?
MrBlackJack - 8/27/2014, 8:30 PM

Dat helmet...
JohnWilkesBooth - 8/27/2014, 8:30 PM
Avengers sucks. No plot.

Guardians, Iron Man 1 and Winter Soldier are brilliant. Everything else is sub-par
MrBlackJack - 8/27/2014, 8:31 PM

Yeah, I think Gunn explained that in a FB post or something. They just wanted to differentiate the two.
MrBlackJack - 8/27/2014, 8:31 PM
Damn, paranoid much or what, Rulk?
DeusExSponge - 8/27/2014, 8:33 PM
That Star Lord concept art! Wish they had went with it. I liked the movie costume, but the one in the concept art, IMO, is a hundred times better than the one in the movie.
MrBlackJack - 8/27/2014, 8:36 PM

Rulk - 8/27/2014, 8:36 PM
@Gandhi - "Comics are not the same as Movies"

That's it? That's your intellectual argument against the way Marvel CBM's handle death wise old Gandhi?? Time to change your username to Miley Cyrus!

BlacktinAmerica - 8/27/2014, 8:36 PM
@Gandhi you're just gonna leave but I haven't explained why your still wrong.
Luminus - 8/27/2014, 8:51 PM
@Gandhi: I was recently thinking about this. Marvel needs to stop with the fake deaths. It's tiresome.
HAILHYDRA - 8/27/2014, 8:56 PM
Marvel haters are getting really creative with ways to discount what Marvel has done. DC fanboys were really counting on GOTG to fail but needless to say that kind of back fired. I get the feeling a few of them will be on suicide watch one it out grosses Man of Steel
DatGuy - 8/27/2014, 8:56 PM
So they were going to incorporate a more classic look for Starlord.
HAILHYDRA - 8/27/2014, 9:02 PM
@Gandhi I'll take a fake death to the way Jonathan Kent died any day. He sacrificed himself for a frickin dog
MexicanSuperman - 8/27/2014, 9:04 PM
@ Rulk, you are taking what he said way to seriously.
Bekss - 8/27/2014, 9:05 PM
Why is there a flame war in an article about some amazing concept art.

Those ships are beautiful.
ThePowerCosmic - 8/27/2014, 9:25 PM

Sorry but you are wrong about the Fantastic Four Films oh great one:

Fantastic Four 2 Rise of the Silver Surfer - Silver Surfer dies but not really. Sue Storm dies but not really.

You lose.
TheAstoundingMan - 8/27/2014, 9:45 PM

And that's exactly what I would expect Pa Kent to do.
supes123 - 8/27/2014, 10:01 PM
he didn't sacrifice himself for the dog, he sacrificed himself so Clark wouldn't have to reveal his powers to all those people dipshit
Omarvls - 8/27/2014, 10:22 PM
DC Only Fanatics
Aren't coping to well with GotG becoming a Blockbuster
They really thought Marvel had a Green Lantern type Flop

BaneSmash - 8/27/2014, 10:33 PM
For [frick] sakes someone do something of this mother [frick]en ads!!!!!
mmadadamm - 8/27/2014, 11:02 PM

Sony - 1, Marvel - 0
Starkasm - 8/27/2014, 11:06 PM

TankD - 8/28/2014, 12:33 AM
