Marvel has released the first poster and teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 today. The sequel to the 2014 hit Guardians of the Galaxy will also be written and directed by James Gunn and will see its main cast – Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, and Michael Rooker all return to reprise their roles. Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel also return to lend their voices to their characters, Rocket Raccoon and Groot – this time as an adorable “Baby Groot!” Though he is not featured in the first teaser trailer, one of our all-time favorites, Kurt Russell, joins the cast for the sequel. Wow!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 is still tied with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as my favorite Marvel movies. Tied, because even though they are both brilliant, they are also so different that it would be ridiculous to compare them. Vol. 1 was so different from anything we expected and boy was the world pleasantly surprised by a funny, heartwarming, witty first comic based movie from Gunn.
Have a look at the first teaser trailer below –
It’s pretty clear from the teaser that we can expect the same heart and humor that made Vol. 1 such a huge success. And, Chris Pratt will be charming the socks off us all once again, after the first movie catapulted the actor to true star status. This small glimpse makes it clear that the sequel is surely looking to hit us in the funny bone and bring on the feels again. Can’t wait!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will hit theaters on May 5 of next year.
