New photo of Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

According to Comic Book Movie on Sunday, actor Djimon Hounsou, who plays Korath the Pursuer and is seen in the "Guardians of the Galaxy" trailers with a weapon pointed at Star-Lord, played by "Parks and Recreation's" Chris Pratt, now has new photo out on display holding some kind of spherical artifact. This is the same thing Star-Lord was attempting to acquire in a temple at the beginning of the movie trailer, so one may wonder how Korath had it in his possession.

Director James Gunn had commented on the finished product brought forth from Hounsou and it was found to be a mind blowing experience. The make-up job was excellent, with the eyes and metal implant being a nice touch. Hounsou also plays the villainous Drago Bludvist in "How To Train Your Dragon 2." Gunn also mentioned how the fighting style used by Hounsou was a mixture of boxing and wrestling.

"When we saw how he looked in the makeup, with the blue eyes and the metal coming out of the head, we were blown away. Besides, Djimon brings a humanness to the part, which was needed."

Hounsou just adds to the ensemble of many in "Guardians of the Galaxy", but most importantly the main mess of misfits are brought together to fight the main villainous foe Ronan the Accuser, played by "Hobbit's" Lee Pace and pictures of the character was made apparent online with a additional editions of trailers and TV spots.

Though he is just the tip of the ice berg when it comes to the main villain of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thanos, The Mad Titan, is seen at the end of "The Avengers." Sources also say Thanos is seen in hologram form and also has shared scenes with Ronan and Karen Gillan's Nebula in Gunn's movie. It has been announced that "Goonies" and "Jonah Hex's" Josh Brolin has been cast to voice Thanos and actors Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper are voicing current characters Groot and Rocket Raccoon as well in "Guardians of the Galaxy."

To see it all come together, go see "Guardians of the Galaxy" come Aug. 1.
