As if it wasn’t already clear, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is Marvel Studios’ biggest priority right now. That film is getting the best release slot (the beginning of May) and it even had a well-received trailer during the Super Bowl; which has been ranked among the best commercials of the Big Game. Now, we could breakdown the newest footage for clues to the plot…and we totally will. But today’s episode of Nerdist News is also adding a few details we learned while on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!
Join science editor—and living embodiment of the missing Infinity Stone—Kyle Hill as he offers up our collective insights regarding the return of the Guardians of the Galaxy. The name of the game this time around is clearly “relationships.” Director James Gunn has apparently set in motion a series of events that will redefine Gamora and Nebula’s rivalry, while also bringing Yondu onto the team after he breaks away from the Ravagers. Even Drax may have a new connection, if we’re correctly reading his interactions with Mantis.
More importantly, the trailer teased the way that the Guardians made enemies out of both the newly introduced race known as the Sovereign and the Ravagers. Apparently, the Ravagers even have a new leader named Taserface, who is going to make life very difficult for the team. Of course, the lead villain, Ayesha, may get her hands on the Guardians first!

Editor’s Note: In the video above, we said that Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumors” came out in 1976, but it was actually 1977. Whoops!
