Marvel has released the first still from the upcoming ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ starring Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt & Dave Bautista. The image features Gamora (Saldana), Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord (Pratt), Rocket Raccoon (Cooper), Drax the Destroyer (Bautista) & Groot (Diesel) in a ‘Usual Suspects’ type police lineup, similar to what was seen at Comic-Con this past summer. Marvel has also issued an official synopsis of the film:
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.
