Next year Marvel is going out to space and isn’t coming back to Earth until 2018. If you put aside their joint venture with Sony Pictures for Spider-Man: Homecoming, both sole Marvel Studios releases, Thor: Ragnarok and May’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, are going to far out places.
While 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy proved to be an enormous hit and Doctor Strange more recently primed audiences for trippy, far-out adventures and Marvel has free reign to go even further with their cinematic adventures. Director James Gunn is back in the captain’s chair along with the entire crew of the Milano, for more intergalactic hijinks and they have all been sorely missed.
This is the first official teaser trailer – the first being labeled a “sneak peek” – for the movie and it effectively conveys the tone and scale of the movie. While they are still withholding the Kurt Russell reveal, aka Ego the Living Planet, they do give the world its first look at Mantis, played by Pom Klementieff. As well, as showcase some of the comedic beats that the franchise is known for. Enjoy!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 opens on May 5th, 2017.
