I have tried to NOT think about this, but everywhere I go, I see something that reminds me and then I have to try to put it out of my mind. Why do I have to wait until August???
I figured it was time to post some pics of the cast from Comic Con 2013 and give a little info on characters. This is mainly because I know a lot of people aren’t familiar with Guardians of the Galaxy. The movie was written and directed by James Gunn (Dawn of the Dead) and is based on a Marvel comic. If you watched Thor: The Dark World, you saw a teaser for the upcoming film. If you are like me, you were jumping up and down in your seat!
The premise of the movie is this: Peter Quill, a.k.a Star-Lord, steals an orb and is being hunted down by Ronan, the Accuser. In order to evade Ronan, he must team up with a group of unruly characters. Quill finds out the true power the orb possesses and has to rally the troops (his new “friends”) to pretty much save the galaxy!
So, now that I’ve whet your appetite, here are the characters/cast:
Peter Quill *Star-Lord* (Chris Platt)- He is a womanizer and the leader of the misfits.
Gamora (Zoe Saldana)- Adopted daughter of Thanos.
She use to work for Ronan and is trying to turn over a new leaf so to speak.
Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista)- His family was killed by Ronan and he is seeking revenge.
Rocket (Bradley Cooper)- A machine gun-toting, genetically engineered raccoon,
who, by the way, is an expert marksman.
Groot (Vin Diesel)- Rocket’s companion who is a tree-like humanoid
Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace)- Admiral to Thanos; hunter of the Guardians
Nebula (Karen Gillian)- The female villain in this story.
She teams up with Ronan to hunt down the Guardians.
Ok… I think that’s enough for now. We also have Djimon Hounsou and Michael Rooker in the movie, as well as John C. Reilly and Glen Close. What a cast!
Here are some pictures I got from Comic Con. And I would just like to give major props to Karen Gillian and her decision to shave her head for this role. KUDOS WOMAN!!!
Finally, the trailers. AWESOME!!! Please enjoy!
