First look: Guardians of the Galaxy (+video)

Marvel has debuted the full trailer for the Guardians of the Galaxy, its first superhero film not set on Earth.

The trailer has plenty of action, including a glimpse of the Bradley Cooper-voiced Rocket Raccoon and WWE wrestler Batista as Drax the Destroyer.

Parks and Recreation star Chris Pratt takes the lead role of Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the film, who recently said that unlike many other comic book heroes his is somewhat "childlike".

"Being stuck in space with no accountability makes for a strange combination of youthful vibrancy and cluelessness in a childlike man," Pratt told USA Today.

"He does some things that most people wouldn't get away with. But part of his arc is being willing to essentially sacrifice himself for the greater good of other people."

In other Marvel news, comic book characters Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones are all set to get their own Netflix mini-series sometime in 2015, before banding together for a team-up show called The Defenders.
