Following the hubbub surrounding the exit of Edgar Wright from Ant-Man and subsequent director search (they finally landed on Peyton Reed), Marvel is looking to get things back to normal with a week of Guardians of the Galaxy posters.  Each day will see a new character poster reveal for director James Gunn’s space-set sci-fi adventure, and today they’re kicking things off with a standlone poster for Rocket Raccoon and Groot.  Judging by their demeanor here, these are two animated characters that you do not want to cross.  Rocket is being brought to life by Bradley Cooper, while Vin Diesel will be spouting variations of the word “Groot” by voicing the giant tree.

Hit the jump to check out the new Guardians of the Galaxy poster, and if you missed the latest trailer, click here.  The film also stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker, Peter Serafinowicz, and Josh Brolin as Thanos.  Guardians of the Galaxy opens in theaters on August 1st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits – Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
