Marvel Guardians of The Galaxy

You've seen the first trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy film adaptation, unveiled a couple of days ago; now check out these 5 new character videos, each focusing on the Guardians, along with the first poster for the film!

Zoe Saldana plays the female lead in the film - a character named Gamora, described as "the green-skinned humanoid who is the last of a species that was exterminated by a race known as the Badoon. She also happens to be a skilled assassin," the deadliest woman in the galaxy, who makes a switch for the better, from working for the bad guys, to joining the good guys - the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Also of note, Djimon Hounsou is playing a villain named Korath the Pursuer - according to the Marvel wiki, a member of the alien Kree race, who was augmented by an unknown experimental cyber-genetic engineering process. He has superhuman strength, stamina, and durability. He also has the ability to psionically locate individuals by tracing their brain patterns. He wields two 1½ foot beta-batons which generate electrical force capable of stunning opponents into unconsciousness on contact or disrupting functions of electrical devices. He is capable of flight via electrically powered turbines in his boots.

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 entire 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 Quill 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.

Saldana and Hounsou join Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, and Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, in the movie adaptation of the superhero movie franchise (potentially).

Also, Bradley Cooper will voice the Rocket Raccoon character, described as a sometimes over-enthusiastic weapons expert; and Vin Diesel is Groot, the giant tree-like creature.

James Gunn is directing the movie, with Disney releasing it on August 1, 2014
