See what he has to say about each of the heroes...
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently spoke with Empire about Guardian of the Galaxy, which opens on August 1, 2014. Check out the highlights:
On the main villain: "Ronan The Accuser is very much the main bad guy. And Thanos is lurking above it all. You will learn more about Thanos in Guardians, for sure. Certainly you'll get more than the one turn-around-and-smirk. You'll get much more than that."
On the film being connected to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: "We've already said that Thanos plays a part in it and is a character in it. That in and of itself should tell you it's connected to the other worlds."
On Drax the Destroyer: "Drax has one goal and one goal only, which is to kill Ronan because of a past tragedy."
On Gamora: "When we meet Gamora, she's a bad guy working with Ronan and Nebula and Korath and, by extension, for Thanos. Gamora doesn't necessarily like doing that anymore, and tries to find a new path for herself. But she has such a reputation as the deadliest woman in the galaxy that people aren't greeting her with open arms."
On Peter Quill: "Peter Quill left Earth in the mid-'80s, but when we meet back up with him he's very much a citizen of the universe."
On Groot: "Groot is a species that happens to look like trees look, and is quite communicative if you can understand the different inflections in the way he says, 'I am Groot.'"
On Rocket Racoon: "Rocket has been genetically and mechanically altered, he's an experiment from one part of the galaxy.
