The next production from Marvel Studios, Guardians of the Galaxy, focuses on a relatively unknown group of heroes. The reality is that most Marvel movie fans have never heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy and this means that Marvel is going to need to some major marketing to promote the film. With the release of the first trailer, we learn a number of important things about the movie.
Members of the team
One of the first things the trailer did was to introduce the audience to the Guardians of the Galaxy tem members. This was a must because no one really knew who they were. The trailer starts with Peter Quill, the team leader, also known as Starlord. Drax the Destroyer has been seeking revenge for the death of his family. Gamora is a green skinned assassin wanted for multiple murders. Rocket is a raccoon who is a pilot and is a master thief. Groot is a living tree with brute force that travels with Rocket.
Not typical heroes
The reality is that this group is far from the typical heroes that Marvel has developed. All of them are wanted criminals for a variety of things. The Guardians of the Galaxy might be more like the criminals of the galaxy. From the trailer it does seem that the Guardians have been held in some sort of detention center. The original comic book story that brought the first team of Guardians together was an escape from an alien detention center. It seems that this may be repeated in the movie.
Glimpse of three villains
The trailer gives us a glimpse of three different villains that will cause problems for the Guardians of the Galaxy. Here are the three villains known in the trailer.
The Collector is one of the Elders of the Universe and uses his age as an advantage in knowledge. The Collector plays a role of being able to obtain anything he desires and it seems that he is collecting the Infinity Stones.
Ronan the Accuser
Ronan the Accuser is a member of the Kree. The Kree made a brief appearance on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. Ronan carries a staff that has the ability to fire bursts of cosmic energy, beams that disintegrate matter and the ability to teleport.
Nebula is an assassin and ruthless leader in the armies of Thanos. She is a master strategist and incredible warrior. The trailer seems to suggest that there is a coming fight between Gamora and Nebula.
Marvel fans have been waiting for some time for the Guardians of the Galaxy to hit theaters but the wait will have to be a little longer. The trailers have stimulated the appetite of Marvel movie fans and anticipation is building quickly for the release date. The Guardians of the Galaxy is arriving in theaters August 1, 2014.
