'Guardians of the Galaxy' Guide: Meet the Cast & Characters

It's been over a year since Marvel Studios first revealed their plans to produce a Guardians of the Galaxy film adaptation. Following on the heels of well-known properties like Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, and their combined Avengers team-up, many film fans are still trying to wrap their head around the Guardians of the Galaxy movie - which features the added challenge of introducing an entire ensemble team of alien beings.

Many die hard comic book fans would be able to list-off in-depth back stories for the Guardians (and their antagonists) but Marvel still has a long way to go in educating casual filmgoers about the movie. To help get the ball rolling, at Comic-Con 2013, the Guardians of the Galaxy cast offered personal descriptions for their respective characters - as well as insights into what excites them most about the upcoming film.
