Marvel is set to bring yet another of its properties to the big screen: they have indeed announced a Guardians of the Galaxy movie. For those who haven't heard about the comic book, the guardians are a team of interstellar heroes that are proactive in protecting the galaxy, rather than reacting to crises as they happen: basically you may consider them as Marvel's equivalent to the Green Lantern Corps from the DC universe. Marvel confirmed the film is in development during the 2012 Comic Con. They have already set a release date: August 1, 2014.
A first logo and a concept art for the film have been revealed:
