Visual Concepts for Guardians of the Galaxy

Think Marvel’s forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie will live up to the cosmic reach of the comic book series? Judging by these concept paintings, the producers and writer/director James Gunn are certainly going to try!

My favorite is the one depicting massive starships lifting off a planet, but the alien environment — a strange city in a cave? — looks pretty atmospheric. Finally, that group shot includes a few members of the guardians, including Rocket Raccoon, Drax (to be played by former wrestler Dave Bautista) to his left (with the red tattoos) and Groot, the big tree-like dude on the right side. It does give off a bit of a Star Wars cantina feel, but I’m hoping it can be filmed in such a way as to minimize the similarities.

Guardians of the Galaxy is slated to be released Aug. 1, 2014.

Oh, yeah? Sez you!
