While not as popular some of Disney's Marvel properties, "Guardians of the Galaxy" is expected to make a big splash when it opens on August 1. But you're probably asking with a name so cool, who are these guys? Well, Disney just sent over a featurette introducing you to the sexy and deadly Gamora played by Zoe Saldana. She's almost as tough as that other green guy.
If you need to know more about Marvel's merry band of bounty hunters, here's their story in a nutshell from our friends at the Mouse: "From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, 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, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill 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."
