If you’re anything at all like us, you’ve been sitting and patiently awaiting anything new out of Marvel’s, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, camp and today, they’ve finally gone and tossed us a whopper! Earlier this morning Marvel put out the very first teaser trailer for the sequel to their smash summer 2014 hit, Guardians of the Galaxy.
You can watch the trailer here and then read our reaction below:
While this new trailer has a lot to offer, it takes it’s time to call back to very first trailer for the original film through it’s use of music. In this we get a slightly more dramatic remix of Blue Suede’s classic, Hooked on a Feeling. While this is great and definitely reconnects us with the characters that we grew to love from the first movie, one of the most anticipated parts of the new film is the soundtrack, so we were kind of hoping for a little taste of something new. That being said, it does land the appropriate punches and sets a good tone for the trailer in general.
It also sets us up right away with a joke, featuring a locker for space suits labeled, “Space Suits For Emergency,” but in proper Guardians fashion, graffitied underneath it reads simply, “Or For Fun.”
Immediately, five seconds into the trailer you know that they’re setting you up for something fun and the rest of the trailer absolutely delivers. We see all of our favorite heroes along with some familiar faces from the past, including both Yandu and Nebula, but we also catch a few new aliens species that we’ve not previously encountered. While this trailer doesn’t really give anything in terms of its story, it definitely works to set the tone of what to expect.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes out on May 5th, 2017.Follow Us:
