In 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy snuck up on audiences with its unorthodox characters, worlds, and humor. Almost three years later, the team is an established player in the Marvel cinematic universe after a stunning debut and cementing their place in the superhero lexicon. Now writer/director James Gunn is back with the next chapter in the ragtag team’s adventures in space and it looks bigger and more colorful than ever.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 hits theaters in just two short months with the entire crew of the Milano in tow. Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Drax, and Groot, will be joined by Yondu and Nebula, during their next attempt to save the galaxy. While one of the biggest reveals will be of Star-Lord’s biological father, Ego, played by Kurt Russell. The acting legend seems perfectly cast as the father of the roguish scoundrel Peter Quill, while Russell’s history as a 80’s legend fits perfectly with Star-Lord’s past.
In addition to the new trailer, Marvel also debuted a brand new poster for the sequel that seems to capture the colorful and wacky nature of the property. There is still two months to go, so we will be bringing you a lot more on the upcoming release…so brace yourself. Enjoy the trailer!
