The first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy gave audience brief descriptions of the titular heroes, but it also showed us a couple of other main characters. We had already seen The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) in the stinger from Thor: The Dark World, so the big new addition was Nebula (Karen Gillan), one of the two main villains (the other being Lee Pace‘s Ronan the Accuser). As you can see from this close-up, the makeup looks terrific and the former Doctor Who star is almost completely unrecognizable.
Hit the jump to check out the full image. The film also stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Djimon Hounsou, Michael Rooker, Peter Serafinowicz, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. Guardians of the Galaxy opens in 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.
