There has been a hole in my life since the summer of 2014. A hole that can only be filled by a talking raccoon, a living tree, and their motley assortment of friends. Thankfully, I only have to wait until one more summer to get that hole filled. Check out the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2:
Ok, so there’s very little plot in that trailer, but man does it look pretty. The gang is all back, plus Yondu and Nebula, and they’re kicking ass and having wonderful space adventures, just liked we hoped they would. We already know, thanks to some wonderul SDCC footage, (spoilers!) that part of what they’ll be dealing with is Star Lord’s Dad. We also saw an incredible action scene at SDCC that I won’t spoil here involving Rocket, Yondu and Baby Groot that you can see a tiny piece of in this trailer.
Guardians is still the best film that Marvel’s ever done, but can James Gunn keep the ball rolling and produce an excellent sequel? Well, yeah, probably, but we’ll find out next summer when we all get to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Check out the full first poster below, too. Points if you can spot Baby Groot.
