As Marvel fans in the United States patiently await the release of Thor: The Dark World, fans everywhere else have moved on to the next big Marvel release coming our way. James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy is set to hit theaters this upcoming summer and promotional material is starting to seep out into the public.
The first of which seems to be an international poster for Guardians of the Galaxy leaked online.
After some digging by Slash Film though, these posters have been exposed as nothing more than photoshopped fan art. James Gunn confirmed as much on his official Twitter account.
@russfischer I think that’s fan art I saw a long time ago.

Despite the fact that this is merely fan art, we can expect something like this poster to be released at some point in the very near future as we are getting closer and closer to the release of Guardians of the Galaxy this August.
With the promotion of the odd Marvel film comes the debate as to whether it will live up to the standards of other Marvel movies to come before it. Without any major or well known Marvel characters in the film, Gunn has loaded the cast with recognizable faces like Bradley Cooper and possibly Vin Diesel.
We won’t know what the film looks like until we get closer to August but for now, the hype is starting to grow and the expectations are on the rise.
