No one expected Guardians of the Galaxy to be the hit that it was in 2014 as Marvel banked on another relatively unknown property to sell to audiences. We all bought in and became Hooked on a Feeling with the surprise hit. This summer, the Guardians are back and from the new trailer, it looks like we’re in for more characters, worlds, but the same that we came to love from the first film all to Fleetwood Mac’s ’70s hit “The Chain”.
Set two-to-three months after the events of the first film, the Guardians of the Galaxy travel throughout the cosmos and struggle to keep their newfound family together, while helping Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) learn more about his true parentage.
From the line up, it looks like the family has gotten bigger beyond the key members with Ravagers leader, Yondu (Michael Rooker), Gamora’s estranged sister, Nebula (Karen Gillan), and newcomer, Mantis (Pom Klementieff). Drax (Dave Batista) looks to be flexing more of his comedic muscles along with Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper). Let’s not forget that adorable tree-like humanoid, Baby Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel). We don’t know who the Guardians are fighting against but Marvel needs to leave some surprises for us. One thing they didn’t keep hidden was Kurt Russell’s role as Ego, Peter Quill’s father!
Judging from the two songs that we have gotten in the previews, we should also prepare for another awesome soundtrack in this installment.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 flies into theaters on May 5, 2017.
