The only words uttered in the teaser trailer for the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer that will premiere tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live are, “Who are you?”
That is beyond fitting as Marvel introduces a new group of superheroes to the world that largely… people don’t know.
As teased with the release of those Guardians of the Galaxy photos yesterday, Chris Pratt is Star Lord, and isn’t he impeccably cast as the leader of this rag-tag group of celestial superheroes that includes Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou and John C. Reilly. The film also features the voice talent of Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon and Vin Diesel as Groot.
What else is awesome about this 15-second spot is it answers the above question by showing us at least a flash of every single one of the heroes that make up the Guardians of the Galaxy.
The film that lands August 1 will have its first full trailer live tonight and Movie Fanatic will bring it to you. Until then, to keep the tease factor high, click through our Guardians of the Galaxy slideshow below!
