Marvel Studios is gearing up for the release of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ as Phase Two just about hits the halfway mark when the new Marvel One-Shot ‘All Hail The King’ comes out on the ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Blu-Ray. But after the Sentinel of Liberty steps aside in preparation for ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’, the House of Ideas will set its sights on the only original property in this phase of their cinematic universe, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. Recently, we’ve been hearing talks of a sequel and an animated series before we even got to officially see the first footage from James Gunn’s upcoming intergalactic feature. However, that’s all about to change as the first trailer will debut tomorrow night on ‘Jimmy Kimmel LIVE’. And in anticipation of that debut, some teaser images have hit the web.

USA Today released three brand new stills from tomorrow’s trailer featuring Marvel’s newest team of heroes. In the gallery below, you can see a close up of leading man Chris Pratt, the Guardians’ ship named the Milano, and a full look at the whole team:

In addition to the teasers, the article also contained some long-awaited details about the story. Now, we have an idea of how the team comes together and the threats that they will face:

“[The Guardians’] stories converge in the space prison Kyln. After the characters break out, they venture to Knowhere (the severed head of a celestial being that serves as a hangout for aliens) and visit the weird menagerie of the Collector (Benicio Del Toro). They also have to avoid two villains, Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), who are in hot pursuit of Quill’s orb, which has the power to destroy the galaxy.”

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ starring Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, and Michael Rooker blasts off on August 1st, 2014.
