Boy, that was unexpected! Director James Gunn surprised those of us who were led to thinking that a trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 would be out for Christmas. Instead, he released a teaser trailer and poster today.
Seriously, with all the craziness going on right now with this stupid election, seeing the teaser is a tonic for the soul. It had me right at the beginning when “Hooked On a Feeling” started playing as we were re-introduced to our favorite space pirates (sorry Han and Mal).
Compared to the teaser for the first Guardians of the Galaxy, this one doesn’t show as much, but it doesn’t have to since we don’t need to be introduced to the characters. All we had to see was Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax and Yondu! Now he’s part of the gang and supposedly Nebula, but how that comes about should be an interesting story. Let’s not forget Rocket Raccoon and Groot. The duo were the breakout stars from the last film and it looks like the same will happen with the sequel. Come on, no one with a heart can’t help but squeal at the end of the teaser when baby Groot pops up on Rocket’s shoulder! It’s a complete reversal from the last time around when Rocket was often perched on Groot’s wooden shoulders.
The highlight for me was the big scene shown where Drax consoles Peter Quill over his love woes. Apparently, Peter’s lovestruck over Gamora and can’t connect. Drax just tells it like it is when he advises his friend that there are two kinds of beings in the universe. “Those who dance, and those who do not.” he adds that Peter needs to find a woman as pathetic as him before giving him an unwanted hug. It still brings a smile to my face as I think about the scene.
Looks like Marvel Studios has another winner with Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. I’m already eagerly anticipating the release of the full trailer for this sequel. Anyway, here’s the teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. It’s already on my must-see list for 2017.
Lookin fine and dandy – but then again, I expect nothin’ less from this combo
Love th sneak view of Rocket n Baby Groot –
but really want to catch what Kurt Russell as Ego looks like! Next May?! Ah, man!
In th meantime, this:
will just have to suffice
Ego and some semblance of a plot will surely be revealed in the next trailer. Well find out soon.
I wouldn’t say that I loved the first Guardians as much as most folks but it certainly was entertaining and this looks like it’ll be a lot of fun!
It’ll be interesting to see the characters team up with the Avengers in Infinity War.
While the Guardians are welcome in Avengers: Infinity War, it would be even better if more characters from the MCU would show up like the Netflix heroes.
But back to the Guardians trailer, this one just whets the appetite for what will come next.
Agreed, I very much want to see the Defenders make a deserved appearance (along with at least Coulson from AoS) and solidify there place in the overall MCU.
