‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Trailer Finally Drops on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ (Video, Photos)

Fans have been waiting since August — krutacking AUGUST! — for another look at Marvel's space misfits

“The Guardians of the Galaxy” is without question the goofiest, most random comic-book adaptation that Marvel will ever bring to the bigscreen.

And the Guardians are finally here, for all to enjoy in their absurd glory.

After a healthy tease at Comic-Con and D23 — footage that was kept mostly under wraps — Marvel/Disney debuted Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (wrestler Dave Bautista), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) and soon-to-be-fan-favorite Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) in a full-length trailer that debuted Tuesday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

(Why Kimmel, you ask? Easy math: Kimmel = ABC = Disney = Marvel. )

Until Marvel announced that they were getting feature-film treatment, the Guardians have remained an obscure comic-book entity — but they shot up in prominence ever since, including a supporting role in Marvel's massive, cross-title “Infinity” comic-book event that concluded earlier this year.

Marvel also released new stills on Tuesday night. See them below:

    If this works for Marvel, DC might as well stick to animation…


    This trailer gets worse and worse with each viewing. Really wish this was one of those properties that just stayed bury. Looks completely ridiculous.
