The Internet was blowing up last night when the first officially released trailer of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy was finally shown. If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor and watch it now. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
Excited yet? What’s that? You don’t know who any of the characters are? That’s understandable considering the likes of Star-Lord, Groot, and Drax the Destroyer aren’t household names like Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man. That’s why Marvel decided to release character specific mini-trailers to give the world a taste of this oddball group.
Personally, I’m really excited to see more of Rocket Raccoon as voiced by Bradley Cooper. I’m a fan of Cooper’s work and “Rocky”, as he’s affectionately known, is a fan favorite who earned a slot in 2011’s Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Although he’s without a charming cockney accent, I still like what is shown here.
