Following a live Q&A-with Chris Pratt , Dave Bautista (Batista) , Karen Gillan, Director James Gunn, Marvel Studios President & Guardians of the Galaxy Producer Kevin Feige, and Vin Diesel-Marvel Studios has released a new trailer for the upcoming film, Guardians of the Galaxy on the Guardians of the Galaxy Facebook page.
Slated to open August 1, the new trailer unveils quite a bit more than the original teaser, serving to whet the palates of eager fans. The space-faring superhero team first appeared in a 2008 comic book and was formed by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning from existing, unrelated characters. It’s the second team to operate under the same name-originally created in 1969 by Arnold Drake and Gene Colan. The individual characters that form the team have varied origins in comics going back as far as 1960, and though the books feature more members-past and current, the movie features Gamora, Peter Jason Quill-self styled as Star Lord, Rocket Raccon, Drax the Destroyer, and Groot as the current team. The film promises to be and action packed and witty tale of bandits gone good, and seems to have garnered positive praise of aggressively loyal comic book fans.
