Meet the film's cast in new clips
A series of teaser videos for Guardians Of The Galaxy have been revealed – scroll down and click to watch.
The clips introduce each character from Marvel’s forthcoming film, including Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora and Groot. The film centres on a team of superheroes who appear in a 2008 comic book series of the same name. Marvel is hoping it will kickstart another big screen franchise like The Avengers when it opens in cinemas on August 1, 2014.
It was reported last week that Marvel are already discussing a sequel to the film, which could potentially be released on May 6, 2016 – a date which has been reserved for an unannounced project by Marvel, and would come shortly after a Guardians Of The Galaxy cartoon series premieres on Disney XD in autumn 2015. Marvel, however, have not yet commented on the reports.
Guardians Of The Galaxy boasts a bumper cast including John C Reilly, Bradley Cooper, Benicio Del Toro, Parks And Recreation actor Chris Pratt, former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan and Vin Diesel. Director James Gunn began shooting the film in July last year (2013).
