Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer

Marvel Studios’ potential new franchise launcher opens in August. Not much has been revealed about it, but now we have the first trailer. Ramping up the fun and irreverence, this film based on the not exactly well-known comic series, and directed by James Gunn (Super, Slither) looks pretty great.

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 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 is 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.

Rival moviemakers 20th Century Fox also launched 17 new mid-shot character pics from May’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, but let’s be honest, you want to watch that trailer again, don’t you?

Deadpool and Spider-Man Infinite Comics Previews

Infinite Comics is Marvel’s new approach of making comics work on mobile devices, with original content made specifically for phones and tablets. It’s a good idea for those who want to read something new which they can fit in their pocket, and take out while they’re waiting for their bus to arrive. Below are two press releases and a text-free preview, about Deadpool’s second issue of The Gauntlet, and a soon to be released series starring an amnesiac Spider-Man. Spidey’s series is entitled Who Am I and kicks off in April (yes, with the returning Peter Parker. Yay!)
