As much as I am looking forward to the summer after that long winter we had, I’m also really looking to be August 1st so we can see Star-Lord grace the big screen with his presence in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. Knowing that fans of the comic series and hopeful fans from the trailer that was released can’t wait to see more, Marvel has released two new shots of Chris Pratt as Star-Lord in full costume to enjoy!

We aren’t getting any new details here, but we will get the idea of showmanship that Star-Lord is putting into each of his actions from these two shots. Let’s take a look!

In the first image above all I can imagine is that he is going to be cracking some sarcastic joke any second and ruin the tension he’s built up by walking into a darkened room with his lenses gloawing and dramatically posing in what little light is there. Or, hes about to trip over his own feet.

Clearly he’s strutting his stuff in the above image and getting his leather jacket done up in style.

And while exciting as these images may be, Disney’s CEO Bob Iger hinted that this film may be the start of a ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ franchise!

“This August 1st, we’re looking forward to introducing the world to more fantastic Marvel storytelling, with a great cast of new characters in Guardians of the Galaxy, which we screened last week and we believe it has strong franchise potential.”

Could we be seeing a ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3 line up?

So what do you think? Does the film have the suit down? Will ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ become a new franchise for Marvel? Are you as eager for August 1st to roll around as I am? Share your thoughts below!


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.

‘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.
