Yet another perk of watching “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”: Marvel rolls out exclusive clips and featurettes from their upcoming movies during that hour of ABC television. During episode 18, “Providence,” Marvel showed a preview of “Guardians of the Galaxy” that featured, among other things, voice actors Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel talking about their roles.
“The growth of these characters allows the film to kind of create its own personality and its own identity,” says a noticeably giddy Diesel, who voices Groot. “That’s always fun when you’re at the frontier of something new.”
Cooper, who voices Rocket Raccoon, adds, “I think people are going to be kind of blown away with how unique it is. There’s nothing like it.”
There’s not much new footage to speak of in this featurette, but it is cool to see Cooper and Diesel speak about their characters since they’ll be animated in the film. “Guardians of the Galaxy” is due in theaters on Aug. 1, 2014.
