Character Posters For Guardians Of The Galaxy Online
Update: Here's Drax! And Star-Lord!

Update: The charatcer poster parade continues with Gamora, Drax and Star-Lord joining the fun. 

There has been a recent slew of fan and professionally designed posters for Guardians Of The Galaxy. Now Marvel has entered the fray with a new character image featuring pals/troublemakers Rocket Raccoon and Groot in full flow for what is surely the start of a run of character pics and likely a sign of an impending new trailer.

Rocket, of course, is the genetically tinkered critter with a bad attitude, Bradley Cooper’s vocal stylings and a penchant for weaponry. He’s often found teamed up with hired plant / muscle Groot, a hulking Ent-like creature who sounds like Vin Diesel and who only says one thing: “I am Groot”.

They’ll become part of a bigger team in the new film, which finds alien-napped human Peter “Star Lord” Quill (Chris Pratt) taking on the unofficial mantle of leader for a rag-tag bunch of assassins, thieves, bruisers and maniacs when a bigger threat endangers their star-trekking endeavours. First thrown together in prison, Rocket, Groot, Quill, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Drax (Dave Bautista) must find some way to work together. 

Slither director James Gunn is behind this one, which also features Lee Pace, Benicio del Toro, recent Empire interviewee Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Josh Brolin, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker and Peter Serafinowicz. It’ll be out in UK cinemas on July 31. Ooga-chaka!
