The “Guardians of the Galaxy” are all lined up in the first official image to be released from Marvel’s 2014 cosmic adventure.

“Guardians of the Galaxy,” directed by James Gunn and based on the Marvel comic series of the same name, follows roguish antihero Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), and his squad of aliens tasked with teaming up to battle intergalactic threats.

Included in the group is the furry, fan-favorite character Rocket Raccoon, to be voiced by Bradley Cooper.

Both Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon are featured in the new photo, along with Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer and the sentient tree Groot, a CG character that Marvel has confirmed will be voiced by Vin Diesel, who openly discussed the role with Hero Complex back in August.

In the film, Glenn Close (“Fatal Attraction,” “Mars Attacks”) will play Nova-Prime, the highest-ranking officer in the Nova Corps police force, and the ensemble cast also features Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro and John C. Reilly.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” is slated for an Aug. 1, 2014, release in the U.S.
