Another new character poster from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has been released online.
This poster features The Collector, played by Benicio del Toro. In Marvel comics, the Collector is one of the oldest being in the known universe, being among the first to gain sentience after the Big Bang. He obsessively collects living being and artifacts from across the universe. The collector made a cameo appearance in the after-credits scene of Thor: the Dark World.
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 Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it 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.
The episode will air just two weeks ahead of Guardians of the Galaxy’s theatrical release date of August 1.
