The majority of the marketing campaign for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has been themed around the five heroes of the film, and only recently did support characters like Michael Rooker’s Yondu begin to get the spotlight. A few days ago we finally saw character posters for the supporting good guys, but now Marvel has turned its attention to the villains!
Released yesterday are three brand new character posters, with the three key villains each getting their go in the spotlight. With the exception of Thanos (voiced by Josh Brolin), below are the three main villains who will cause the Guardians some major headaches: Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Korath The Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou) can all be found below.
Guardians of the Galaxy is written and directed by James Gunn, and the cast includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, Peter Serafinowicz, and Benicio Del Toro.
The film will be released in UK cinemas July 31st.
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 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” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
