This summer is packed full of marvel goodness from studio films to property owned by other studios like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past. But one of the wild cards this summer is Marvel launching the largely unknown series Guardians of the Galaxy, which is essentially an Avengers B-team.
But the cast is headlined by big stars like Chris Pratt, Benicio Del Toro, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper who are raising the profile of the film and causing a stir in the summer movie season. We don’t know what to expect from Guardians of the Galaxy, but we got our first look at the film this week when Marvel released the first official images of the movie.
The film already looks like something a lot of people will be drawn to, if for nothing other than it’s anti-hero appeal. When you have a movie where Bradley Cooper is voicing a mutant raccoon who wields duel machine guns and it off the chain crazy, that’s something that will appeal to audiences.
It’s an odd appeal, but the movie has that odd charm to it that look alike it will make Guardians of the Galaxy another hit for Marvel.
Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters on August 1, 2014.
