"Being stuck in space with no accountability makes for a strange combination of youthful vibrancy and cluelessness in a childlike man," said actor Chris Pratt of his role as Star Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, the first Marvel Studios film to depict some of the decidedly less iconic characters of the Marvel comic book universe. In an interview with USA Today's Brian Truitt, the actor and Guardians director James Gunn shared new images from the film and revealed some details about the characters and the overall nature of the film, which they hope will be a "fresh diversion" for superhero movie fans who've been seen the same movie again and again and again.
Plenty of concept art and set photos from Guardians of the Galaxy have popped up over the past several months, but Marvel is closing out 2013 with its first official look at the characters from James Gunn's space-faring flick.

Diesel posted the video on Facebook. Check it out after the jump.
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy movie probably seems like a pretty weird concept to a lot of folks unfamiliar with the comics source material, so Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is here to offer a primer.
Speaking with Empire magazine, Feige said the Guardians are "an unlikely band" brought together by "pure circumstance." He went on to describe each character. You can catch all his descriptions after the jump.
New photos from the London set of Guardians of the Galaxy hit the Web today, giving fans their first real glimpse at several of the alien races set to appear in the movie (there's a definite Star Trek feel to the makeup), and the uniforms the Nova Corps will be wearing.
Check out a smattering of photos (the first of which reportedly featured Glenn Close in full makeup as Nova Prime, but is in fact not her) from a scene in which aliens run across London's Millennium Bridge after the jump.
After a cryptic picture of a meeting at Marvel got people thinking he'd be starring in Avengers 2, Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel posted a picture to Facebook Sunday that seemed to indicate his adventures in the Marvel cinematic universe will be a bit more... galactic.
That picture was of Groot, the tree-like alien from Planet X who and member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. The scuttlebutt now is that Diesel may be the voice of the character, who in recent years has limited his speaking to nothing more than the phrase, "I am Groot."
