Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Teaser

The awesome mix is back! Guardians of the Galaxy 2 sees the return of some of our favorite intergalactic misfits since Firefly. Set two months after the events of the first film, the guardians are struggling to keep up with protecting the galaxy and staying together. In between that, Peter Quill, aka Star Lord, is on a quest to find his estranged father and learn more about his mysterious parentage.

Perhaps one of my favorite space operas, not to mention marvel film, I can’t wait for Guardians of the Galaxy 2. That being said, this trailer wasn’t all that different from the previous; We get some Blue Swede, glamor shots of the heroes, and that’s about it. I’m not saying it was a bad teaser, it was just a teaser. It met expectations on how good it was.

So what did I like? The visuals look great; the vibrant colors, the set pieces, all gorgeous. My favorite shots of the teaser were probably Star Lord staring out into space getting ready to spring into action, and Gamora leaping with a sword. I loved the ending banter as well. It actually helped reveal a bit of the story too, showing how things aren’t necessarily going well on the romantic front for Gamora and Star Lord.

My biggest, and probably only complaint for this teaser was we weren’t really given anything new. True, we get adorable baby Groot and new set pieces, but that’s about it. I would have liked seeing some more new teases of characters. Where was Mantis and Kurt Russell’s Ego? As much as I like how this trailer tries to stay in tune with what worked last marketing campaign, it felt too much of a rehash.

Aside from being a stickler, I did enjoy this teaser a lot. I hope GoGv2 will be as awesome as the first. Check out Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 May 5, 2017.
