If you weren't excited for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy before, you will be now. After much build-up and anticipation, Marvel has finally released its latest trailer for the next chapter in its superhero saga. Check it out.
“From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises 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.
Aside from being every kind of awesome imaginable, this trailer gives us two things that people have been clinging on to the most, and the two characters that will make or break this film-Rocket and Groot. Rocket looks absolutely incredible, and with Bradley Cooper voicing him, it is sure to be a massive hit. Fans will obviously be upset that Rocket doesn't have his signature accent, but I'm sure Cooper will fill the role nicely. And as far as Groot, we finally get an "I am Groot", and the only thing that comes to mind is "Yep...that's Vin Diesel".
