It’s Guardians a-go-go today! With the bigger comic-book franchises out of the way for the year, (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier) the hottest property on fanboy lips and tweets is Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy. We’ve already been graced this morning with the main character biographies, and now another drool-worthy morsel has lit up the web – the release date of the second trailer.
The new trailer is scheduled to land online at 10:30AM PST on Monday May 19th, 2014. But that’s not all! It will be preceded by a live Q&A with the cast on the Official Guardians Of The Galaxy Facebook page at 10:00am, with the option to submit your questions beforehand.
While there’s been plenty of rumours concerning the new footage allegedly included (a glimpse at big bad Ronan) – director James Gunn has alluded to reserving some juicy content for this second trailer. A chance to listen to the voice-over work of Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon and Vin Diesel as Groot? Let’s hope so.
Before then – there’s a cracking new poster that’s arrived. It’s a standard genre poster, with the main Guardians in varying poses of badassness, and you can check it out below.
Guardians Of The Galaxy opens on August 1st, 2014.
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 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.
