Ready for a very different kind of superhero movie?

The first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, as fans of this Marvel classic now have their first look at a light-hearted take on a series of comic book characters led by Chris Pratt.

Set to Blue Swede's "Hooked on a Feeling," the footage features Pratt trying to look tough as Star-Lord, along with Bradley Cooper voicing Rocket Raccoon and John C. Reilly evaluating an unusual group of potential heroes.

Guardians of the Galaxy will be released on August 1 and it looks hilariously awesome.

Check out the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer above and then scroll down for a look at various movie trailers that debuted this month during the Super Bowl.

We got a rare glimpse into the filming of the upcoming Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy, the other day and today there is even more. 

This time it's Michael Rooker as Yondu along with the film's director, James Gunn.

There's been a flurry of Guardians of the Galaxy news lately, with Gregg Henry announcing his involvement plus Bradley Cooper's talks with the studio regarding Rocket Raccoon.

When Gregg Henry announced his involvement in frequent collaborator James Gunn's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, it was speculated that he may be the voice of Rocket Raccoon. 

Now, thanks to Latino Review, it appears as if that speculation might be over and it isn't Henry's name attached to the space dwelling raccoon, rather it is none other than Bradley Cooper!

Fancy Bradley Cooper

The site, that is often the source of movie rumors, is saying that Cooper is at the top of Marvel's list for the voice of Rocket Raccoon.

Vin Diesel is Groot and now it appears as if Gregg Henry is joining the Marvel film as well.

The Scandal star tweeted out earlier, "OK UK hold on, I'm comin'. Joining @James Gunn again - #Slither #Super - this time for @Marvel #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy. Gonnabegreat!"

Outside of his very savvy twitter usage, the tweet doesn't give much information beyond that of Henry's involvement in the upcoming film. Most of the main characters have already been cast, outside of Rocket Raccoon.

Could Gregg Henry be Rocket Raccoon? We'll just have to wait and find out.

After the Vin Diesel as Groot rumor this morning, now it's time for some behind the scenes looks at Guardians of the Galaxy!

In a back and forth to somewhat rival John Barrowman's involvement in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special, Vin Diesel is hinting once again that he is part of a Marvel project.

Diesel posted the image below on his Facebook page and although it was taken down from the main page, it can still be found in the photo albums.

That, of course, would be the Guardians of the Galaxy member, Groot. 

Despite Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige, saying that Diesel wasn't involved in anything at the studio any time soon, could he be the voice of Groot?

Hopefully we'll know either way very soon!

I'm super glad I'm not friends with anyone with the title "The Accuser." That does not sound like a fun person to have around.

But a fun person will play an Accuser in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

John C. Reilly will play Ronan the Accuser, to be exact.

Ronan the Accuser belongs to an alien race called the Kree. He wields a giant powerful hammer and possesses superhuman strength and speed.
