The first trailer for the newest superheroes, Guardians of the Galaxy, to hit the big screen for Marvel came out earlier this week. You will be forgiven if you do not recognise this unconventional batch of crusaders as they would not be known by the masses.

Nonetheless they are apart of the Marvel’s “Phase 2” of their cinematic universe and although it is said they will not appear in ‘The Avengers 2’ they will feature in a future ‘Avengers’ movie.
