There's been some debate and speculation over how the Guardians of the Galaxy movie will work. Some have seen the footage from Comic-Con. Check out this official image:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchise 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.

The movie opens on August 1, 2014.

Everyone fits the bill except Gamora and Drax.

Jeez, second from the left looks just like Smallville Clark in one of his Red-Blue Blur’s costumes.

He does look like he stole from Clark's wardrobe.

Drax looks like something out of a cheap low budget film.

I'm not too excited for this movie, because I know very little about GotG, but I most likely will see this film in the theaters.

@ccraft: just look them up on Wikipedia or Google them

This.

Rocket Raccoon is honestly something I'm most looking forward to seeing.
I just hope they have a good balance of comedy, action, and drama. Marvel has been overdoing the comedy lately.

The hair makes Gamora look like Poison Ivy.

I love the raccoon just chilling in the middle in the center of attention , like there is nothing weird about it. Just embrace it !!

Can't wait to see the Nova Corps

#14 Posted by Perfect 10 (1096 posts) - - Show Bio

they did drax and gamorra wrong. drax looks half red instead of just having red tattoos and gamorra doesnt have her signature ring eyes. sigh. the mock up picture made them look so much better. peter had a red leather trench not some little jacket. and where is his element gun and why no mention of his alien heritage? doesnt mean they will leave it out but it sure looks like they will

looks great, cant wait for this movie. itll be a nice change from all the earth based hijinks

#16 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (33913 posts) - - Show Bio

Whos debating on how it will work? It's not hard.

#17 Posted by Tattacus (58 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm quite excited for this even though I know nothing about GotG. I may have to look into a couple of trades.

#18 Edited by Wyrmdog (39 posts) - - Show Bio

Gamora actually looks better than I expected her to. Not excited about Rocket Raccoon, though. I really hope he wins me over but right now...he's my biggest hesitation.

Most excellent.

@tattacus: You should read Annihilation and the DnA run, it's what the film is taking inspiration from.

#22 Edited by KaliboooStew (70 posts) - - Show Bio

They all look great, except for Gamora in my opinion. I'll have to wait to see a bit more before I completely write her off, but at the moment I'm just not seeing it.

#23 Posted by StMichalofWilson (3920 posts) - - Show Bio

Not bad...I think

#24 Posted by iceslick (792 posts) - - Show Bio

Everyone looks cool but I don't get why Gamora's hair is red not green? Is it because it's too complementary and it's needs a contrast? ( I'm not sure if I'm wording this right because red is a complementary color to green) I also finding it disturbing that Rocket Raccoon is a cute little Raccoon which I love. lol

Cheers for the recommendation! One thing, what is DnA?

Sorry, DnA is what the fans call Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning

THIS.

Spot on with the rest of the gang. (Drax is questionable. Too much red tribal.) Also, can't wait to see what The Nova Corps and Ronan look like.

Very early #GotG still released by Disney today. @jamesgunn

Rest easy. It looks like even Mr. Gunn isn't too enthused by the image.

#31 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (33913 posts) - - Show Bio

I really hope hope Marvel do what they'v done with all there other characters and give Star Lord a movie redesign.

If we are not getting the old design back, this is the next best thing.

#32 Posted by SavageDragon (2252 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow.

#33 Posted by Maddpanda531 (1112 posts) - - Show Bio

Drax just looks kinda blurry to me, but I'm sure he will look better in a higher res image. Gamora is kinda off-putting, though. I kinda expected more of a mellow, olive shade of green, but that's just straight up green. I dunno, she just looks...unfinished to me. But that might just be me being nit-picky.

#34 Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan (3341 posts) - - Show Bio

Drax looks kinda funny

#35 Posted by CurlyInsaneGuy (67 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, not sure about the look Drax has, but not bad overall. Can't wait to see more.

#36 Posted by MadeinBangladesh (7385 posts) - - Show Bio

This movie could be huge.

Disappointed with how Drax looks. I liked him in warlock and the infinity watch.

@jonny_anonymous: Star Lord still from SDCC Footage. I think Drax would've looked cooler with the white comicbook eyes.

Agreed. What I loved about his old design was the fact it had a very Pulp Sci-Fi hero feel to it. Like a Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers. This one feels like a Han Solo/Mal Reynolds which is also good because hey, Space Cowboy

Thanks for the terrible post! Not one of us knows to whom you are referring. The characters? The actors? Us as commentators? Every Marvel employee? Context, son.

James Gunn has mentioned (on his FB account) that this still image is "unfinished" so I'm sure they'll iron out the kinks later next year, relax folks. I dig the pic regardless :)

Exactly, current one is to Mass Effect for my liking

James Gunn tweeted saying it's a very early picture

@jonny_anonymous: Yeah I don't like the current one either. Oddly enough it makes my Mass Effect playthroughs feel more satisfying when playing as Peter Quill Shepard...................... I'm a geek I know.

Haha do you go for blond Peter ot brown Peter?

#48 Edited by GraniteSoldier (8492 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks great, and I'm sure it'll look better on screen. Never really followed GotG, but this has sounded really good and Rocket is a bada**. Drax looks a bit off from pictures I've seen of him, but it's still early on and he'll probably look different in the film itself.

They could look a little better, but still looks good.
