Good news, Marvel fans! A trailer has dropped for the sequel to 2014’s awesome Guardians of the Galaxy, and it’s every bit as stylish as fans of that movie would expect. Due to open in theaters on May 5, 2017, the trailer gives us a brief glimpse of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Racoon (Bradley Cooper), and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel). Also seen is a brief glimpse of Yondu (Michael Rooker) and his Ravagers, along with Gamora’s sister Nebula (Karen Gillian).
Set two months after the first film, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 revolves around the search for Peter’s father as the Guardians struggle to maintain their newfound group. The trailer doesn’t give much exposition to expound on that, though the more knowledgeable and observant out there will be sure to glean more information from the minute-and-a-half run time. You can be sure some tie-in back to Thanos will occur ahead of the eventual Guardians inclusion in the Avengers series as well. The humor remains intact, the brief look at the action looks amazing, and Peter’s old-school music provides the backdrop. In short, the trailer gives everything fans of the first film want to see.
For those who have yet to see it, check the trailer out below. Be sure to let us know everything I missed in the comment section! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes out May 5, 2017.
