Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel's first departure from its traditional comic book roster. Based on a popular franchise, the film's leads are a far cry from the clean-cut Golden Age Avengers. Most of them aren't even human.
In the first trailer, released Tuesday night, we're introduced to this ragtag band of space misfits, including Bradley Cooper as a raccoon, Vin Diesel as a tree, Zoe Saldana as a green alien assassin and Chris Pratt as a super fit version of his Parks and Recreation alter ego Burt Macklin.
Watch the trailer below. Guardians of the Galaxy is set for theatrical release Aug.1.
