If you grab a copy of the latest Geek Magazine, you're in for a treat: It features a couple new images from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. The issue offers a good look at Chris Pratt's Star-Lord, who's wearing his signature face mask. Initially we were concerned that it wouldn't translate well from comic to screen, but we stand corrected.
Pratt looks ready for action as the intergalactic criminal-turned-hero. Star-Lord is the leader of a dysfunctional band of misfits that includes Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket (Bradley Cooper). When Pratt was initially cast, some people had reservations. But after seeing the trailer and these photos, he definitely fits the part.
Guardians of the Galaxy will take the Marvel Cinematic Universe to new heights as it expands into a more space-centric saga. The heroes will have their hands full with the likes of the Collector (Benicio del Toro), Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan).
Guardians of the Galaxy opens in theaters Aug. 1.
