Only one superhero movie remains for Summer 2014, and fittingly Marvel will be bookending the blockbuster season.  We previously saw a string of Guardians of the Galaxy posters released that highlighted each character, but a few more posters have now landed online that give the CG characters Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) and Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) their own one-sheets, as well as a deadly new poster for Zoe Saldana’s Gamora.  Moreover, writer/director James Gunn has also shared a new image that teases Michael Rooker as Yondu.  I continue to look forward to the film, but I’m hoping Disney doesn’t go into marketing overload and start revealing scenes from the third act in the final leg of the film’s promotion.

Hit the jump to take a look at the new Guardians of the Galaxy posters and the Michael Rooker image.  The film also stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Karen GillanGlenn CloseBenicio Del ToroDjimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, and Peter SerafinowiczGuardians of the Galaxy opens in 2D and 3D 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.
