The movie was confirmed during SDCC's Iron Man 3 panel.
Marvel Studios announced that it would be producing a Guardians of the Galaxy film, presumably as a lead in to Avengers 2. The film has been widely speculated since the premiere of the box office smash Avengers, which featured the galactic villain Thanos.
Marvel confirmed that the movie would focus on the "modern" iteration of the team, which includes characters such as Rocket Raccoon, Groot and Starlord. Gamora and Drax will also appear in the film.
The movie is expected to be released in 2014 and will be part of the studio's "Phase 2" which will lead into the next Avengers movie. The movie will be released August 1, 2014.
