‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Poster: Rocket and Groot Are Marvel’s Dynamic Duo
Hands down, Rocket Raccoon and Groot are the heart and soul of Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ Voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, respectively, the fury gunslinger with an attitude and the Ent on steroids are big selling points for this intergalactic adventure, making them perfect to headline the first of a slew of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ posters.
Premiering over at Fandango, which will be debuting ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ posters all week long, the new one-sheet design featuring this best-bud duo exemplifies what each is about — Rocket loves to get gun happy, while the muscle of the group is famous for his battle cry, “I am Groot!”
Still to come are Chris Pratt as Star-Lord/Peter Quill, Zoe Saldana as the green-skinned assassin Gamora, and Dave Bautista as the crazed Drax The Destroyer. When teamed up, this unlikely band of misfits form the Guardians of the Galaxy, who must stop Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), two henchmen of the ultimate villain, Thanos (voiced by Josh Brolin), from obtaining a mysterious orb that has the potential to threaten the whole universe.
We can’t wait to see this next Marvel installment hit theaters this August 1, but stay tuned for more poster debuts and check out Rocket and Groot in action below.
