You won’t get to see live-action versions of Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers until August and May 2015, respectively — but fans of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble can catch both groups of superheros in Sunday’s episode, “Guardians and Space Knights.” Just how do they all come into contact? Here’s Marvel’s official description:
When Galactus attacks Earth, Iron Man is able to lead him to another planet but discovers that it is populated and under the protection of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Featuring special guest stars Kevin Michael Richardson as Groot (The Cleveland Show), Seth Green (Family Guy) as Rocket Raccoon; and John DiMaggio (Futurama) as Galactus, the episode marks the first appearance of the misfit gang in the animated action series. Watch an exclusive clip of their meeting below, as Captain America warns his teammates to “be ready for anything.” (A gun-toting, walking raccoon included…)
Marvel’s Avenger’s Assemble airs Sunday at 8 a.m. ET on Disney XD.
