The much anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy is almost here, and what better way to get more pumped than by looking at the newly released stills featuring Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord, played by Parks and Recreation's Chris Pratt.
The stills released Wednesday, May 7, by the studio features Quill wearing the ominous yet pretty cool Star-Lord mask.
More stills, including those of the rest of the space crew, can be found on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy page.
Based on the 2008 comics, Guardians of the Galaxy follows brash adventurer Peter Quill (Pratt) finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan (Lee Pace), a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket (Bradley Cooper), a gun-toting raccoon, Groot (Vin Diesel), a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). 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.
The superhero comedy also stars Doctor Who alumni Karen Gillan as Nebula, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Djimon Hounsou as Korath, John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, Glenn Close as Nova Prime Rael, and Benicio del Toro as The Collector.
Directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters everywhere August 1.
