The first trailer for the newest superhero bunch to hit the big screen from Marvel came out last week (click here to see). You will be forgiven if you do not recognise this misfit batch of crusaders as they would not be known by the masses.

Nonetheless, the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ are a part of “Phase 2”  Marvel’s cinematic universe, which includes Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Hulk, and although it is said they will not appear in ‘The Avengers 2? they will feature in a future ‘Avengers’ movie.

Starring in the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is one-time MMA fighter and WWE superstar Dave Bautista who takes on the roll of Drax the Destroyer. The 45-year-old made his one and only appearance in the cage with a win over journeyman Vince Lucero at CES MMA in 2012. Now “The Animal” is back in WWE and is set to headline ‘Wrestlemania’.

Also in the movie is an all-star cast featuring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Benico Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.

Guardians of the Galaxy is slated for release in August later this year.
