On the heels of that epic trailer that totally blew our minds, Marvel has now dropped the first official poster for Guardians of the Galaxy. Want to see?

The poster is everything you’d expect from the motley crew, with the entire gang striking a pose with their ship parked in the background. We also get a look at everyone’s weapon of choice, including Star Lord’s blaster and Rocket’s big ol’ gun. Of course, the whole thing is tied together by the tagline “You’re Welcome” draped along the bottom.

Along with introducing fans to the team, this poster also gives us a glimpse into Marvel’s marketing approach. With no franchise name or big star to pin Guardians on, they lead off the top by reminding us this is a Marvel movie. You know, the guys who made Iron Man and The Avengers? Same studio.

So, despite the fact that it looks a little weirder than the usual fare, you should trust them. Because they're Marvel. Fair enough. 

Guardians of the Galaxy opens Aug. 1. Will you be blasting off with the weirdest super team yet?
