Looking back on 2015, one of the tougher cinematic decisions for many superhero fans is likely to be pretty much the same one it is every year - deciding which of Marvel Studios' two released movies was their favorite. With Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man both garnering a whole lot of (slightly tempered) love, the decision isn't an obvious one - but at least it's easier than 2014.

Last year, after all, saw the release of two of the strongest candidates yet for 'fan favorite Marvel movie' - Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, both of which blew a whole lot of socks off upon release. While they were both widely loved, though, only one of them now has an animated series - which in the long-term, could suggest that those ever-snarky Guardians will win out in the popularity stakes.

In the meantime, the animated series in question - starring the Guardians of the Galaxy - finally has a trailer, and as it turns out:

The Guardians of the Galaxy Are Just as Awesome When Animated

Which...actually makes a whole lot of sense. After all, between fan favorites...



...and Star-Lord... Well as the Rest of the Gang...

...why on Earth wouldn't the animated series be awesome?

Especially with a pitch like this:

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy follows the newly-formed team who finds a strange artifact keyed only to the DNA of Peter Quill. Upon opening it, Quill unleashes a treasure map leading to a powerful weapon known as the Cosmic Seed which is capable of giving birth to the next universe. It’s up to the Guardians to find, protect and ultimately destroy the Cosmic Seed in order to keep it out of the hands of those who would abuse its power, from galactic big boss Thanos, to the conniving brothers the Collector and the Grandmaster, to a resurrected Ronan, to the ultimate trickster, Loki, in order to save the universe.

That said, it's still super weird hearing Will 'Ron Stoppable' Friedle voice Star-Lord...

What do you think, though?
