Know the Guardians of the Galaxy Team Characters?

The teaser for the upcoming Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy finally went up last week. There wasn’t much story or plot reveal, but on the characters they revealed a LOT. So, do you know who the Guardians of the Galaxy are now?

First, the team. If they based it on the comic books, then there are actually 2 Guardians of the Galaxy teams. This movie is based on the second team. There is a bit of backstory but to cut the long story short, the old team had to save the world and they got wiped then this new team got formed. I don’t think that this movie will cover that back story. But it doesn’t matter since this new team has a really good mix of characters.

The pictures below show their criminal records. You will also notice several GBH’s in some of the team’s criminal records, they stand for “grievous bodily harm”.

Quill aka Star Lord
This guy is super smart and a master strategist. He’s part human (mother) and has since left earth. He’s also pretty good with people so he’s done quite some work in inter-planet relations. In the trailer he shows a lot of his loose attitude but that is all part of the act I believe. His character is really badass. I also think it’s kind of awesome how he has a Sony walkman that’s been confiscated by the alien guards.

He doesn’t look that tough here, but look at the topmost picture where he has his helmet on ready to kill dudes. He’s played by Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation, LEGO movie)

Gamora is one of the most dangerous women in the universe and she just loves to kill. There is some relationship between her and Thanos who adopted her as a child and trained her to be the killer she is. If you look at the picture bio, she’s the last surviving member of her race.

Gamora is played by Zoe Saldana (Star Trek – Spock’s lady friend).


One look and you know what this big guy is all about. Drax is just a huge brute who has accelerated regeneration powers. You just know that there will be lots of smashing in this film.

Drax is played by the Philippines’ own David “Batista” Bautista from the WWE. This also means that he’ll be doing more talking with his fists rather than his mouth. That’s fine.

Rocket Raccoon
Rocket Raccoon is my favorite character among everyone in this team. He has a really lousy attitude and has a bunch of criminal records to his name. I’m mainly biased because he appears in the video game Marvel vs Capcom 3 and have a lot of fun using him.

He’s voiced by Bradley Cooper (!). Hopefully he has that rugged voice to match the character.

Groot is a plant dude. He’s big and he’s the one who’s a bit out of place in this team since he’s not an outlaw nor a killer. He just looks like he got tagged along for the ride and is (maybe) enjoying it. Groot usually hangs out with Rocket Raccoon.

Groot is voiced by Vin Diesel.

So that’s the entire Guardians of the Galaxy team.

Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” opens in Philippine theaters on August 1, 2014. For more detailed character bios, look at the images below.
