Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may be the world's most anticipated entry in a franchise that most people didn't even know was a thing just two years ago. Before hitting the big screen, the Guardians of the Galaxy were a pretty niche team confined to comic books and animated kids shows. But then writer-director James Gunn came along and made a movie about them; a movie that very, very quickly became one of the most beloved Marvel movies and a box office phenomenon to boot, raking in even more money than even Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon and Groot have become a very big deal to Marvel and Disney, not to mention millions of fans all over the planet. So to say that there's probably a bit of pressure on Gunn's shoulders to meet everyone's expectations for the sequel is a massive, massive understatement. So how's Gunn going to top it?
With ease, it looks like. This incredible new teaser trailer barely even shows off a ton of stuff we know is in the movie, including returning cast like Karen Gillan's Nebula or newcomers like Kurt Russell as Ego the Planet. But it's still a perfect tease, full of glorious visuals and hilarious character moments.
Check it out.
