So here we are, 2014 already. Before we’ve even binned our Christmas trees and eaten the last of the massive bags of crisps, Hollywood is already busy planning a bumper year of movie releases. As New Years Resolutions go, “we will not make any more superhero movies because 2013 saw about sixty three released” clearly wasn’t on the list of Disney big wigs, as yesterday saw the release of the first image for their latest tie-in with Marvel, Guardians of The Galaxy.
The image gives us the first glimpse of the latest superheroes that will be trying to save the planet from various evil villains and their less evil henchmen. From left to right, Zoe Saldana is the green-skinned Gamora,who appears to have broken both of her wrists, Chris Pratt is the very ordinary looking Star-Lord, Bradley Cooper plays Rocket Raccoon via the medium of voice over, Dave Bautista is Ross Kemp lookalike Drax the Destroyer, and Vin Diesel lends his vocal talent to the strange looking tree-like Groot.
Guardians of the Galaxy is released in UK cinemas on the 1st of August 2014.
