Marvel Comics is huge on the idea of ragtag superhero teams. The Avengers is their big seller. Fantastic Four is getting a reboot. X-Men is a cinematic mainstay. And now, the big screen is giving life to a lesser known Marvel troupe: Guardians of the Galaxy.

After a slew of rumors on the subject, Marvel has officially announced at San Diego Comic-Con that a Guardians film is underway. The extraterrestrial super squad has involved a variety of members since its 1969 inception, but the big screen adaptation will feature Star Lord, Drax the Destoryer, Gamora, Groot, and Rocket Racoon.

Following the announcement, Marvel released the first concept art of the ecclectic superteam online. Check it out!
