Yesterday, Marvel put out a teaser image asking the question "Who are the Asgardians of the Galaxy"? Surprisingly, we didn't have to wait very long to find out the answer, and it is probably close to what you might have guessed.
Here's the PR-speak about this new team:
Spinning out of the events of INFINITY WARS comes an epic spaceopera from the superstar team of Cullen Bunn and Matteo Lolli! ANGELA, the not-so-beloved half-sister of Thor. The hotheaded VALKYRIE – and the human who shares her form, Annabelle Riggs. SKURGE the EXECUTIONER, freshly returned from Hel. THROG, the mightiest frog of thunder. Kevin Masterson, the boy who took his father’s mace to become the hero THUNDERSTRIKE. And the DESTROYER, the Asgardian armor built to take down Celestials – its wielder unknown.

So, this is related to Infinity Wars in some way. The team does seem to be missing a certain Korbinite though… What's up with that? One might say Bill isn't an Asgardian, but hey Throg was an American college football player and Thunderstrike is also an American still in school…
Oh well, there go you go, your new Asgardians of the Galaxy. Whatever form it takes (one-shot, mini, ongoing, etc), it should be arriving in September 2018.
