Guardians Of The Galaxy First Look Video Compares The Team To The Avengers

Guardians of the Galaxy Rocket Raccoon & Iron Man

Entertainment Tonight has released a first look at the Guardians of the Galaxy, which contains some new footage for the film. The first look centers around Bradley Cooper's role as Rocket Raccoon, but it also attempts to explaing the members of the team to viewers who may not be familiar with the characters.

In the video, Chris Pratt is described as kind of like Captain America, but with an attitude. Zoe Saldana is described as the Scarlett Johannson/Black Widow type, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon is compared to Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man.

In Guardians of the Galaxy, 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.


Guardians of the Galaxy is scheduled to open in movie theaters on August 1, 2014.
