Just Who Are The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Anyway?

Guardians_of_the_Galaxy HeaderThe first trailer (and first poster) for the James Gunn directed Guardians of the Galaxy hit the web and was, in short, a huge surprise that left film fans clamoring for more insight into Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

We always knew this was going to be a risky movie for the studio and the biggest hurdle was going to be the advertising/marketing. How do you make non-comic fans care about a rag tag team of space misfits they’ve most likely never hear about? Well the teaser did what it needed to (thank you Jimmy Kimmel and Chris Pratt) and now the following featurettes serve to give us all a brief bit of background about the individual guardians from the actors who play them. Consider this “GotG 101“…You’re welcome.

Directed by James Gunn, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is slated for wide release this Summer on August 1st, 2014.
