Get set for a ride into the “galaxy,” as Marvel’s forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy was previewed to audiences yesterday at the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA.
Marvel’s Kevin Feige said the excitement they feel for this film reminds them of their anticipation in working on Iron Man, the studio’s first installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“That excites us to debut something brand new,” Feige said.
The cast currently is in London to shoot the film, but Feige offered the audience a sneak peek, among the first to catch this footage.
The early scene reveals Chris Pratt‘s character entering a mysterious building – perhaps a temple – with a flashlight, exploring his surroundings. Suddenly he is approached by men asking who he is. We know Pratt’s character: Star-Lord, otherwise known as Peter Quill.
Then it jumps to a scene involving John C. Reilly‘s Rhomann Dey analyzing profiles of the Guardians of the Galaxy, including Zoe Saldana‘s Gamora and Rocket the Raccoon.
“They call themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy,” Rhomann says.
This clip was only previously shown only at last month’s Comic-Con in San Diego.
We will find out more about these characters when the film debuts August 1, 2014.
