August seriously cannot get here soon enough, and while we've still got plenty of summer blockbusters to get through before we get to James Gunn and Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' we've got two more new pics from the upcoming movie to help us bide the time. Both images put the focus on Chris Pratt's Star-Lord, the leader of the rag-tag group of unlikely heroes.

Ever since the epically powerful comic book bad guy made an appearance in the post-credits scene for 'The Avengers,' thereby confirming his presence in future movies, inquiring minds have been dying to know which actor will portray him on the big screen. According to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, an actor has already been cast, but he doesn't plan on spoiling the big reveal just yet.
As Kevin Feige says in the new behind-the-scenes look at James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' as debuted during Tuesday night's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' the film is meant to be (the start of) the next level of Marvel movies.

Here's another connection for you: director James Gunn says his upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy' will be connected to 'Avengers 3' -- you read that correctly: not 'Age of Ultron,' but the third film.
Marvel continues to tease out bits and pieces from upcoming superhero space epic 'Guardians of the Galaxy' following last month's debut of the first trailer. The latest batch of photos take us both in front of and behind the scenes with Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, and his crew as they suit up and prepare for some intergalactic action.
