Sorry for not getting this up last night, I had some computer problems pretty soon after watching the trailer, but…
Hooray! Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy trailer has finally released! I think the movie looks awesome and I really enjoyed that the trailer still didn’t really give anything away while still showing off how badass this group is going to be.
Chris Pratt is the perfect funny guy hero to play Star-Lord, a character that is a leader and hero, but can be pretty comical and witty most of the time. I think this will be a huge bump in Chris Pratt’s career, and could bring the surrounding cast much more notice as well. I think that Dave Bautista actually looks amazing as Drax from what we saw, so I’m pumped to see the Destroyer get some action.
I actually love that they haven’t shown us much of Rocket Raccoon yet. We still haven’t heard the voice that Bradley Cooper is using and also haven’t seen much footage of Rocket in action. This is good. Rocket is a great character, and right now it seems like they are trying to spark interest on his character and Groot based on visual appearance alone, mainly that one clip of Rocket on Groot’s shoulders. But, to see Rocket wielding huge guns on his good buddy’s shoulders is all I need for now!
I’m a little worried about Gamora, just because I think she will be the hardest to transition onto the screen. Zoe Saldana is an awesome actress who has proven herself in action movies, and I think she is a good choice for the role, or at least, I can’t think of anyone better, but she still is the biggest question mark of the footage released so far. Gamora is a tough warrior, and we haven’t seen her fight, or heard her speak yet. I just hope they don’t try to overshadow her toughness with too much comedic and witty dialogue, but I definitely am hoping for some snappy responses to Star-Lord’s wit.
Overall, this was definitely an underwhelming preview, mainly for those who are still pretty confused about what Guardians is. As a mega Guardians fanboy, I personally thought this trailer was fantastic, and am glad they are keeping the mystery up. I can’t wait to see more screen shots and trailers for this movie!
Side Note: I think that seeing Karen Gillan as Nebula stole the show. Here is a close up photo, and I’m really impressed and happy with how Nebula looks. Just another thing to make me excited about this movie.
What did everyone think about the trailer? Guardians is a pretty obscure Marvel title, so I want to know if people are excited or still pretty confused. Drop a comment and let me know!
