Marvel boss, Kevin Feige had a lot on his plate yesterday when he hosted the Marvel panel at Comic-Con in San Diego. But among the most amazing things revealed was the fact that he introduced both cast and a clip from the forthcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movie, a mere TWO WEEKS after filming began.

Feige introduced director James Gunn and the entire main cast of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' in Hall H, all of whom flew in from the London set just to appear on the panel.  While filming only just got underway two weeks ago, fans got to see some footage from the production as well as a look at some of the production designs.

Cast members who appeared were: Michael Rooker (Yondu), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Djimon Hounsou (Koraf), Lee Pace (Ronan the Accuser), Benicio Del Toro (The Collector), David Bautista (Drax the Destroyer), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), and Chris Pratt (Star-Lord).

Chris Pratt was asked whether he felt nervous about Guardians as a lesser-known Marvel property, to which he countered: "I don't think the reason that all the Marvel movies so far have been received so well is because they were such famous comic books.

"They were just great stories. Iron Man is Iron Man now to people because of Iron Man the movie."

He was also asked about how he achieved his superhero shape to which he replied:  “it was just weird timing, I got a tapeworm,”  and went on to describe his character as, “This guy who lives in space. He's kind of a jerk; he had a hard time as a kid and now he goes around space making out with hot alien girls and being a bit of a rogue and a jerk, and through teaming up with these guys finds a higher purpose, something to care about and fight for and put his life on the line."

Doctor Who star Karen Gillan, appeared with a fully shaven head, whipping off her red wig halfway through the panel. "I was a little worried that I was going to look like an overgrown fetus, but it's liberating."

She also teased that her character Nebula has "a strange, complex relationship" with Saldana's Gamora.

Saldana herself said of her character: “I’ve been blue once, so I thought why not try green?”

Del Toro said that he has yet to start filming.

Meanwhile the clip,  backed by “Hooked on a Feeling,” showed entire Guardians gang—including Groot and Rocket Raccoon—being rounded up in a space prison, as they were “checked in” by John C. Reilly’s character, Rhomann.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' will be released on August 1, 2014.
