Marvel released a couple of great previews of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Wednesday—an intriguing poster and a teaser trailer that was a perfect example of the first film's awesome balance of action and comedy.
Director James Gunn shotgunned these tantalizing peeks at the new film across his social media feeds, referring to the poster as a "teaser poster."
While the video was enough to get us pumped for the coming film, one of the nicest touches was buried in the poster—if you look closely, you can see a tiny baby Groot clutching Star Lord's (Chris Pratt) ankle.
Count us also damned impressed at Dave Bautista's comic timing in the scene between his Drax the Destroyer and Chris Pratt’s Star Lord, aka Peter Quill. In one trailer we get exciting hints of space battles to come and laugh-out-loud funny character sketches.
The May 5, 2017 premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 can't come soon enough.
