Disney has just released a couple of new Guardians of the Galaxy images that highlight Chris Pratt’s overall awesomeness as protagonist Star-Lord aka Peter Quill.  Though some were unimpressed at the prospect of the Parks and Recreation actor leading a major Marvel comics adaptation, he looks to have nailed the heroic/comedic tone of the lead character in writer/director James Gunn’s film based on the first trailer.  These two new images provide further evidence that Pratt very much looks the part while donning Star-Lord’s signature mask.

The film also stars Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, Lee Pace, Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.  Guardians of the Galaxy opens in 2D and 3D on August 1st.

Check out the Guardians of the Galaxy images below via the film’s official Facebook.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits – Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
