If 2014’s blockbuster hit Guardians of the Galaxy is not in your list of Top 5 superhero movies, it’s time to go back and try again. Marvel Studios released the first trailer for the sequel this week, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, and not only is Groot back, he’ not merely hiding behind Star-Lord’s leg but taking the lead in the Marvel galactic universe. Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, Dave Bautista’s Drax, Bradley Cooper’s Rocket, and Vin Diesel’s Baby Groot are all back in top form.
But Marvel is still holding back the new slate of stars for a future trailer. We’re talking about Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell, and Elizabeth Debicki, and returning stars Karen Gillan as Nebula and Michael Rooker as Yondu, although we saw Rooker in the teaser we previewed earlier at borg.com here.
But what a great first look at the return of this wonderful, motley team of superheroes. Marvel calls it a teaser, but at more than two minutes and with the inclusion of actual scenes it is hardly merely a teaser. Wait no longer– Check out the first full trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2:
The unique blend of sci-fi, superheroes, and fantasy makes the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise unique in filmdom. What other franchise comes close to meeting the diverse expectations of so many fans?
Look for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, in theaters May 5, 2017.
