It looks like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has something for everyone. Swarms of spaceships appearing from nowhere. Star-Lord’s excellent comedic timing. Guns unfeasibly huge enough to give Rob Liefeld weapons envy. The first trailer in my recollection to ever use the word “douchebags.” Plus tentacle monsters, Baby Groot enjoying what look like M&Ms, and much more.
Some of this footage was revealed at Comic-Con, and held back until now. What we see here heavily implies that Nebula, Yondu, and Mantis join the team, that the movie has a winking nod to the idea of the Guardians becoming a franchise, and that Kurt Russell as Ego reveals himself as Peter Quill’s dad in his first appearance onscreen. Also, Nebula has some good questions that illuminate the differences between friends and family, though as Thanos’ daughter, her take on that issue is probably really skewed.
How Quill can hold that pose without inducing severe back pain is beyond me, but turnabout is fair play–usually it’s the female characters having to stand in heinously back-arching poses on comic covers. But what’s with Baby Groot being on his shoulder this time? I wouldn’t want to be the one to tell him he’s making a psychotic raccoon jealous.
Are you pumped for a more awesome mix of Guardians characters? Did this trailer make you more hyped, or merely reaffirm your existing excitement? I Am Groot your response in comments below.
