After getting the first trailer last month and the first clip earlier this month, we have a brand new preview of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ in the form of a featurette. Premiering during this week’s episode of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, the latest promotional video for James Gunn’s upcoming Phase Two film features the team discussing what fans can expect from the next adventure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It has been said many times that ‘Guardians’ is unlike any Marvel movie that has come before it, so naturally the audience needs some background on what they’re getting into. Even a majority of fans that are familiar with the comics don’t even really know what to expect, so Marvel Studios has enlisted some help in hyping up their next release. Yahoo posted the spot that finds Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper explaining that this story still takes place in the same MCU that we have come to know and love, despite being in a distant corner of it. You can check out the featurette below, followed by the synopsis of the movie:
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.
While there’s not much to offer in the new footage department, it is cool to hear the stars talk about this unique and mysterious blockbuster coming our way later this summer. And for those of you anxiously waiting for more looks at what’s to come, knowing how Marvel advertises their movies, we’re sure to get floods of clips, posters, and trailers as the release date gets closer.
