Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have some new pics of the eponymous bunch of ragtag misfits from Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. Two more, one of Zoe Saldana‘s super assassin Gamora and Chris Pratt‘s Star-Lord and the other just of Star-Lord, plus some quotes from director James Gunn on the two characters, are behind the cut.
Gunn says that Thanos—who will be done via motion capture—”slaughtered [Gamora's] family and Nebula’s [that would be Karen Gillan's bald space pirate], then raised them together as siblings. They were bio engineered to become living weapons, so he’s really good at killing people.” Star-Lord, on the other hand, “was abducted from Earth (Missouri) at age 8 and raised in a group of thieves and smuggles called the Ravagers. He’s good with the ladies and a little bit of a dick and very lucky.” And he has a penchant for snazzy coats, clearly.
