However, this trailer comes with a fantastic side of Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
Unlike teasers for the many Marvel movies that have come before it, which have their moments of levity but largely stick to high-stakes drama and action, Guardians of the Galaxy seems dead set on teasing out the more goofy, off-beat tone the film will have compared to other flicks from the studio.
This time around its mostly Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) explaining how "a thief, two thugs, an assassin, and a maniac" (Quill, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, respectively) came together to save the galaxy. But its also got Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) coming in with the great one-liners—"Oh what the hell, I dont got that long of lifespan anyway."—and the movies Hodor/Steve Holt dropping his requisite "I am Groot." (That last bit, youll note, is voiced to perfection by Vin Diesel.) Theres also a fair amount of Drax and Gamora kicking much ass and some fairly amazing space battle footage.
