Slickly rendered art shows the franchise's key characters, including Zoe Saldana's Gamora, Chris Pratt's Star-Lord, Bradley Cooper's Rocket Raccoon and Vin Diesel's Groot, looking set to kill in various action poses.

Last year's hum of excitement towards the coming action blockbuster has today evolved into a practically audible buzz as Disney have released not only the first live action promo shot for the movie but also a synopsis outlining GotG's plotline. Click here to read more about today's exciting news.

Marvel Tease The Upcoming 'Guardians Of The Galaxy.'

The Guardians of the Galaxy are a team of superheroes that were first brought together in a 1969 comic book and reinvigorated in a 2008 line-up. In the movie, Chris Pratt's Peter Quill gets stranded in space and unites a team of unlikely ex-con aliens in order to mount a defence against cosmic threats.

The unique alien band includes a gun-toting, deceptively cute raccoon, an almost ent-like tree creature, the sword-wielding Gamora AKA "the most dangerous woman in the universe," and the dual firearm-toting Star-Lord.

The Stunning Artwork Bodes Well For The Comic Book Adaptation.

Alongside Marvel's immensely successful Avengers franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy was always going to be gamble for the studios. The stunning concept art not only confirms the roster of characters but shows the movie has some real passion and firepower behind it which will hopefully not let down fans.

Indeed, GotG has managed to assemble an equally enviable cast with Doctor Who's Karen Gillan, John C. Reilly, Benicio Del Toro and Glenn Close also set to star in the film alongside the heavy-weight main actors.

Producer Kevin Feige set imaginations racing when he revealed that cosmic madman Thanos, who was teased at the end of The Avengers, will receive an outing in the new movie, creating potential for crossover between the two films, a concept that Karen Gillan, AKA Nebula, has courted.

 The poster-worthy concept art, the new photo and the synopsis should give us something to chew on for the time being before Marvel drop the ultimate fan agitator: the teaser trailer.

Guardians of the Galaxy will be released on the 1st August.
