First Teaser for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Released Online

Marvel Entertainmentguardians-of-the-galaxy-2-poster has unveiled the first official teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. From returning director James Gunn, Vol. 2 brings back Peter Quill/Starlord (Chris Pratt) and his ragtag team of unlikely heroes, Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel). Also returning are Karen Gillan’s Nebula and Michael Rooker’s Yondu, who’s sporting a much larger mohawk than the one seen in the previous film.

There really isn’t too much to say about this teaser. We get a few brief and beautiful shots of our heroes in action yet again played to the tune of “Hooked on a Feeling” by Blue Suede. Yondu is seemingly working alongside the team and it seems Nebula will be captured by another force.

There isn’t much dialogue in the teaser other than a brief conversation between Quill and Drax as Drax attempts to console Quill after an apparent failed attempt at a romantic relationship with Gamora. Additionally, we get our first look at Groot in baby form sitting atop Rocket’s shoulder in the teaser’s final shot, which I’m sure toys and other merchandise are already being fashioned from.

In addition to the returning cast, Vol. 2 will also feature Kurt Russell as Ego the Living Planet, Slyvester Stallone in an as of yet unrevealed role, and Nathan Fillion in a possible cameo as Simon Williams, a.k.a. Wonder Man. Unfortunately the teaser does not provide any footage of these characters, but director James Gunn has stated on Twitter that a full trailer is coming soon.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 releases in theaters May 5, 2017. Check out the first teaser below and feel free to let us know what you think in the comments.
