Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 got a new teaser trailer at this year’s Super Bowl and it is soooo Groot! Check it out below.
Guardians of the Galaxy is definitely in my top three favourite Marvel movies of all time. Depending on the day, it sometimes even occupies to top spot in my mind, but then I think about the original Iron Man and Marvel’s most recent film, Doctor Strange, which really impressed me. So it’s understandable why I’m so eager to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I was so pleased with the film’s very first teaser. I thought it did exactly what it supposed to do, tease you and not give too much of the plot away, if any. The same can be said about this new Super Bowl teaser. Check it out below.
Just who in the Hell do you think you are?
What this teaser does is reintroduce us to the members of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and introduces us to some new recruits, such as Mantis, Nebula and Yondu (who were all, minus Mantis, in the first movie, but are now official members of Star-Lord’s crew). We also have another sort of new member in Baby Groot, who’s very different to the Groot we all came to know and love in the first movie.
I have no doubts that this iteration of the character will be incredibly lucrative for Marvel and Disney. Just imagine the amount of merchandise they’ll be able to sell thanks to him. He’s way too cute for words. However, I have ever faith that James Gunn has used the character properly and hasn’t just thrown him in there for cheap laughs and easy marketing. He needs to serve a useful purpose in the plot, and I’m sure he will.
The teaser also gives us a brief glimpse at Elizabeth Debicki’s character, Ayesha, who’s the one covered in gold from head to toe. She’ll be the film’s main villain and promises to be quite a formidable one. James Gunn’s already confirmed that Thanos will not be showing up in this film, which is a good thing since they’ve been teasing his big entrance for a while now. We’ll have to wait until The Avengers: Infinity War to see Thanos in action.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be in UK cinemas on April 28th, 2017.
