HOLLYWOOD SPY SPOTLIGHTS THE MAIN CHARACTERS FROM 'GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY': CHRIS PRATT, BRADLEY COOPER, ZOE SALDANA, LEE PACE, GLENN CLOSE, VIN DIESEL, DAVE BAUTISTA, DJIMON HOUNSOU

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
 MARVEL'S SUPER TEAM
Talking this week to "Empire" Kevin Feige from Marvel has revealed more tidbits on the characters from next year's most anticipated science fiction movie GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Scheduled for cinematic release in August 2014, the movie will be set in space following an American pilot and a group of futuristic ex-cons who go on the run with a highly coveted object. Their common goal will turn them from the unlikely band of cons into superheroes and guardians of the galaxy.

  STAR LORD
Peter Quill aka Star-Lord is played by Chris Pratt. The leader of the Guardians who left Earth in the mid-1980's. He had a hard time as a kid, And now he goes around space, making out with hot alien girls and only through teaming up with the rest of the outcasts, he finds a higher purpose for himself!

GAMORA
Gamora is played by Zoe Saldana, she is the adopted daughter of Thanos and an associate of Ronan (two of the film's villains) who tries to find a new path for herself. But she has such a reputation as the deadliest woman in the galaxy that people aren't greeting her with open arms. In the film, Saldana's body is painted green.

  DRAX THE DESTROYER
Drax the Destroyer is played by Dave Bautista. He is a warrior in search of vengeance against Ronan and his only goal is to find him and kill him.

ROCKET RACCOON
Rocket Raccoon will get his voice from Bradley Cooper!  A genetically engineered raccoon who is an expert marksman and master tactician. He's an experiment from one part of the galaxy!

GROOT
Groot will be voiced by Vin Diesel. Groot is a species that happens to look like trees look, and is quite communicative if you can understand the different inflections in the way he says, 'I am Groot'.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
THE INTERGALACTIC CAST 
Other characters include Ronan the Accuser played by Lee Pace, who originally auditioned for Star-Lord.  He is Thanos' admiral who hunts down the Guardians. He has a help in Nebula, played by Karen Gillan, who has a complex relationship with Gamora especially; in Korath played by Djimon Hounsou, and The Collector played by Benicio del Toro. Michael Rooker from THE WALKING DEAD plays Yondu a blue mystic hunter, member of the Guardians team. Glenn Close and John C. Reilly play leaders of Nova Corps, intergalactic military/police force. Other cast members include Tyler Bates, the composer of the music in 300 epic, who will be scoring music for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY too! James Gunn is directing the movie.

GALACTIC TIDBITS
Karen Gillan shaved her head for the role of Nebula. Olivia Wilde and Rachel Nichols were first choices for Gamora, while all possible young actors in Hollywood auditioned for Star-Lord: Eddie Redmayne, Wes Bentley, Garrett Hedlund, Cam Gigandet, Jensen Ackles, Sullivan Stapleton, James Marsden, Aaron Paul, John Krasinski...

  4. You may have lost me at the "genetically engineered raccoon who is an expert marksman and master tactician." Not sure what to think about that. I mean, I know they're good at raiding bird feeders, but...

  6. If a superhero movie doesn't have Wolverine or Thor in it, I'm just not interested. And I don't care if that's a narrow outlook, LOL!

  7. Sorry I'm late darling, tomorrow is rubbish day and the Spawn and I are doing a clear out of our back dining room.

    Rocket Raccoon will most likely be may favourite character in the movie.

    In other news on Syria. Thousands upon thousands of American soldiers are taking to the internet and telling the truth about their government and openly saying they will go to prison before they will go against Syria. The government is pulling this stuff from the net almost as fast as it's going up. Some people are now taking screen shots of what is said before it can be yanked. They are trying to talk sense to the American people as they all served in Iraq and know how things really are. As it stands now 52% of the civilian population in America is eager to bomb Syria. I think Obama is going to do this against the wishes of his military. I hope they all stand down and refuse his orders.

    1. I have heard (on National Public Radio) the number of Americans against bombing Syria is much much higher. I hope that's true.

      Meanwhile...not sure about that raccoon; I may need some previews to convince me he (?) works.

    2. It is quite possible that numbers are higher, polls are usually a part of political propaganda :(
      It is the same thing as with the bombing in Serbia in 1999. when they the execution of terrorists was falsely proclaimed as the killing of civilians by US and used to ravage and destroy the country for their own purposes.

      Raccoon will be our favourite pet, for sure...
