Guardians of the Galaxy Official Updated Logo New Guardians of the Galaxy Official Images: Meet the Team [Updated]

Although Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the next Marvel movie to hit theaters, Marvel Studios is gearing up to make a big marketing debut with their second 2014 film, Guardians of the Galaxy.

We recently reported that the first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer will be debuting on Tuesday (Feb. 18), and in advance of that reveal – but following the reveal of new characters and vehicles at the 2014 Toy Fair – we have a gallery of official Guardians of the Galaxy images to share.

Dubbed as “The Avengers in Space”, Guardians of the Galaxy tells the tale of one Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) a boy from the 1980s who winds up in the cosmos of a distant future, where fate brings him together with militant raccoon-looking alien named Rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper); a tree-like alien named Groot (voice of Vin Diesel); Drax, ‘the deadliest man in the universe’ (Dave Bautista) and a mysterious lady named Gamora (Zoe Zaldana). When Peter (aka Star Lord) becomes involved with a destructive device (more on that HERE), he and his band of outer space misfits run afoul of baddies like Ronan the Acuser (Lee Pace) and the space pirate Nebula (Karen Gillan).

Check out the first official images from the film, which feature the team gathered together, their spaceship The Milano, and an additional close-up of Chris Pratt’s charming face. [Update: Replaced images with new high-res official photos - click to enlarge!]

NOTE: Be sure to check back for the official Guardians of the Galaxy trailer tomorrow!

  1. There they are again (nice catch, Kofi).

    Still can’t get enough of these. Once that trailer hits tomorrow, jaws are gonna be on the floor.

    • Just hope this movie is good, and the jaws hitting the floor are not going to be followed by gross things spewing forth from them!

    • Hold up, hold up, hold up. Is it… how is this possible? Did Dazz just say something by Marvel will good? By the heavens! What does this mean?

      • Not sure what that means because the only Marvel properties I haven’t enjoyed are The Avengers and Agents Of SHIELD.

        That’s TWO out of NINE properties so far since Iron Man released (8 movies and 1 show) in this Disney owned Marvel continuity.

  2. That first picture of them altogether excites me more than the first time I saw the circle shot of the Avengers. I guess because it’s all new, but I’m excited

  3. first lead woc actress for MCU and she’s green

    • Maybe she’s a little seasick. In space.

      It ain’t easy being green.

    • Uh, Black Widow?

  4. Yaaaasss

  5. from that USA Today interview..

    “If anything, Guardians of the Galaxy is a fresh diversion for fans of superhero movies, Pratt says. “They know what to expect at every turn. So that’s why it’s important now to do a comic-book movie that no one’s ever seen before.”

    It’s gonna be very different, and it’s really feel it being the Avengers in Space.
    Can’t wait for the trailer tomorrow.

  6. Wow… just wow… (and ScreenRant is late to the party as always haha j/k)
    The image with the cast in uniform made me jump from my seat, and somehow Emmet… I mean Chris Pratt looks different there, he looks more like Ryan Kwanten! I always like him as the usual regualar dude, but here he looks… REALLY HOT!

    Totally can’t wait for the trailer tomorrow, I’m definitely catching this movie on the premiere date in my country!

  7. Draw isn’t the deadliest man in the universe, the “deadliest” moniker belongs to Gamora.

    • Correct! It seems like Kofi Outlaw has made an error. Drax is “revenge-driven” and Gamora is known as “the deadliest woman in the galaxy.” Lol even other ScreenRant reports stated this.

  8. WOW… they just look as bada$$ as they can be!! I think better than the Avengers, other than the hulk but IDK the 1st time I saw all of them was pretty epic!!
    But this has 100% of my attention, I just hate that I now have to watch that moron Kimmel…it will be in the last 5 minutes of the show so I might just record it so I don’t have to go brain dead for an hour of watching that clown

  9. Ohhh my!!! Look at that first picture of all of em!!! They really look badass!!! look at Rocket and Drax!!! Another level of awesomeness I see in that trailer debuting today!!! Marvel have really taken this year!!!

  10. I dig green chicks.

    • Good thing…your blind date for tomorrow night is She-Hulk!

      • (Coulda been worse…I coulda said a Skrull!}

  11. my reaction to these pics

    http://gifrific.com/baby-goes-from-happy-to-scared/

    • I’ve never seen anyone react that way to “Oh that’s awesome…”

  12. Tomorrow is like Christmas 2. Can’t wait. The pictures look awesome.

  13. Ohhh my,look at that team of superheroes!!! Can’t wait for the trailer today!!! Yahoo are really gonna have a load of traffic,if it drops first on their site. And Dazz gif definitely sums it all up!!! Marvel winning this CBM year by miles!!! Drax looking indestructible and can’t wait to hear what Rocket sound like really with Cooper voicing,as for Saldana’s Gamora *scratches head* I’m still not wowed by what I’ve seen so far,but maybe the trailer will make her better.

  14. So excited!!! That group picture is awesome. Really can’t wait to see Karen Gillian as Nebula.

  15. OMG!! Whoa!!! They look so badass! Gamora looks more alien and Rocket has the Star-Lord emblem on his chest! Can’t wait to see this in 3D IMAX!!!!!

  16. Yes !

    • Thanks for the fake teaser.

    • I thought Rockets gun would have been bigger ;P

  17. looks sweet…did Pratt juice it or is Bautista looking smaller

    question for GoG fans, is Pratts character human? is that why he has the mask sometimes to help him breath or is it to hide is identity?

    • Yes, he is human! Not sure why the mask. I’d like to see which direction they are taking with his character, but from early reports, he was a pilot on Earth and somehow he ended up in space and mixed with the rest of the crew.

    • He is half human and half Spartax. The mask was given to him by the Kree but for the MCU the mask will be of different origins most likely.

    • in the most recent comic, he is not human. His mother is human but his father is the king of some other race… that looks exactly like a human. I believe it is Spartax

      http://marvel.wikia.com/J'son_(Earth-616)

    • I’ve never seen anyone react that way to “Oh that’s awesome…”

      • Posted to the wrong message.

    • Quill is half human, his father is from an alien race called The Spartoi (plural form. singular would be Spartan)

  18. Tomorrow cant come quick enough!

  19. This is gonna kick so much friggin ass! Rocket is my homeboy!

  20. I want spaceships! Big Big spaceships!!!!

  21. The Milano Spaceship looks like a feathered Dinosaur bird
    Raccoon is gonna steal the show …lol

    • I think the ship looks exactly like Colonel Quaritch’s bomber in Avatar, but with a paintjob that looks like one of the flying creatures that the Na’vi bonded with.

  22. “If the Avengers were the Beatles. Then GotG were the Rolling Stones”

    That was a quote from Whedon, though I forgot the source. GotG are the bad boys of superhero cosmic team.

    Have high expectations for the trailer.

  23. This better be one heck of a trailer because almost everyone I know that follows movies has never heard of these guys. Marvel is taking a HUGE risk with this one. A talking raccoon is going to be a tough sell to the general public. This could be Marvel’s version of the Watchmen. Loved by comic book aficionados, but generally ignored and panned by the movie going public.

    • Honestly, Gamora is gonna be a tougher sell. As long as Rocket and Groot have their funny moments alongside some good action beats people will eat it up. Groot will be the next chewie and Rocket will be a wisecracking, gun toting Yoda (the only similarity is there size lol).

  24. IDK if this is already found by someone but a friend of mine brought this GIF to my attention of Rocket and Groot fighting

    http://www.guardthegalaxy.com/2014/02/leaked-guardians-of-galaxy-cgi-test.html

    • I can’t wait to see who they were fighting.

  25. Still disappointed that Groot is so short (but can possibly grow), RR looks like a small human with a raccoon’s head and Drax looks like a musclebound thug.

    • heck yeah, I love how spot-on things have been in this movie so far.

  26. Don’t know if Screen Rant has reported on this yet, but just read that the official trailer will come during Jimmy Kimmel Live tomorrow night!

    • Uh-oh, I hope it isn’t a 3 frame clip, like what they did with Star Trek Into Darkness.

  27. Super Excited for this Movie!!! I think Marvel is going to have a nice new hit with this one. Can’t wait to see the trailer tomorrow!!!

  28. a raccoon… an green alien female… a green guy with red tats… a tree… all before some of the most famous characters in comics… DC really need to get their s*** together. well done marvel for taking risks and anyone that thinks otherwise is wrong.

    and i like how marvel is handling this. you really cant make this type of movie without going all in. this also is gonna determine how far comic movies will take the comics because untill the avengers comic movies didnt wanna be like comics. but this is a but different because its in space.

  29. Wow!! They all look great!! Except Zoe. :P
