Guardians of the Galaxy First Photo: Synopsis Also Released!

by at . Comments

Guardians of the Galaxy has released the first true photo from the film and it might look pretty similar to what we saw from Comic-Con in that Guardians of the Galaxy concept art. Where the previous image of the Guardians of the Galaxy was artistically painted, we've finally got the cast in all their glory striking an iconic pose, for those who are familiar with the comic.

Guardians of the Galaxy Cast

In the above photo, we've got our first true look at Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautistia. There's also more of a "this is what you'll see in the movie" rendering of Vin Diesel's Groot and Bradley Cooper's Rocket Raccoon.

Marvel has also released the film's first official synopsis for the film due August 1. 

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.
