New ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Posters and TV Spots Make Bad Look So, So Good

Guardians of the Galaxy‘ is ready to take the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it and blast off into the farthest reaches of the galaxy, and new footage and posters for this superhero space opera promise it’ll be one helluva ride.

While The Avengers continue living on and protecting Earth, Marvel now turns our attention to see what’s happening in outer space and how this new tale could eventually impact the other films moving forward.

Since ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was first announced during San Diego Comic-Con a couple years back, we’ve become familiar with the new batch of heroes — Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), green-skinned assassin Gamora (Zoe Saldana), tatted maniac Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), the gunslinging Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and the tree-like Groot (Vin Diesel) — but now it’s time to get acclimated with some of the supporting characters.

In addition to the new TV spots, three new ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ posters (UK versions, hence the July release date) have been released, spotlighting Michael Rooker‘s Yondu, John C. Reilly‘s Rhomann Dey, and Glenn Close‘s Nova Prime, along with accompanying character descriptions.

Blue-skinned Yondu (Michael Rooker) is an interstellar bandit who has a less-than-perfect paternal relationship with Peter Quill. As leader of the outlaws known as Ravagers, Yondu and his cohorts pillage their way through the galaxy, taking whatever they want for solely their own benefit.

Rhomann Dey (John C. Reilly) is a Corpsman in the Nova Corps, the planet Xandar’s military force. Dey is a loyal and trusted officer but his by-the-book attitude takes a detour when he develops an unlikely rapport with Peter Quill.

Nova Prime Irani Rael (Glenn Close) is in charge of Nova Corps operations throughout the galaxy. From her base of operations on Xandar, the principled and efficient Nova Prime leads her forces with confidence. She defines her mission above all to protect the citizens of Xandar and keep peace.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ will also feature a handful of new villains, led by the Josh Brolin-voiced Thanos (that guy from the ‘Avengers’ post-credits scene). There’s Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), both of whom are after a coveted orb to destroy the universe.

We’ve already seen a good chunk of footage from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ (which we’ve documented HERE), and we can say that everything you love about the Marvel movies is right here. Be sure to check it out in theaters on August 1.
