Yesterday saw Marvel Studios release the first cast image from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

From left to right we see Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Dave Bautista as Drax, and Groot.

If you thought you might have seen it before, that is because you have. The image is from the San Diego Comic-Con trailer, which gave us our first look at footage from the movie.

The trailer was put together by director James Gunn only after about a week and a half of filming.

Gunn took to his Facebook to offer the image is from the trailer, and that it's an unfinished early look. So it sounds as if the completed look of the cast has yet to be revealed.

Okay, so I suppose Disney released this still from Guardians of the Galaxy. It was featured in the San Diego Comicon trailer, and is an early (truthfully, quite unfinished - we've come a long way from here) look at Rocket and Groot, Star-Lord, Gamora, and Drax.  

It's not even close to complete. This is a still from the San Diego Comicon trailer that we put together after 12 days of filming. The character designs weren't even fully finished. 

Thanks, guys. I had no idea they were putting this out as the image (although I had read over the press release a number of times, trying to eliminate spoilers!) This was an image we put together in a couple weeks just for Comicon. I have worked a lot on Rocket since this time, so in the final movie he will look a little different 

 I just mean Rocket and Groot are unfinished. The other guys were practical - we shot them on set - and this is how they look. 

Yes, this is not at all a final still.



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 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. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector.
