It’s time dig out your Walkman because Guardians of the Galaxy V2. has dropped a teaser and boy it looks like we’re in for a wild ride. It’s been a good week for Guardians fans with a trailer also dropping for the upcoming Telltale series.
Back when Guardians of the Galaxy came out back in 2014 I watched with baited breath since this seemed to be Marvel Studios biggest gamble yet.
It was very different from all the superhero movies that had followed before and the setting was different. We were heading out into space and not New York where most of Marvel’s adventures are set, at least in the comics that is.
Adapting a property that wasn’t even being published at the time. An obscure cult property that hadn’t been in the mix for a very long time. Of course, this is Marvel Studios and things turned out pretty well.
Check out the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 below:
The Firefly inspired bad ass space opera stuff really does work. Though I am a more of a Green Lantern guy (let’s pretend that movie didn’t come out in 2011) Of course, it wouldn’t make much sense to have a comic book movie without having an actual comic book being published.
Notable new members of the Guardians team has included, Kitty Pryde from the X-men, Venom and The Thing from the Fantastic Four.
Somehow I doubt we’ll be seeing two out of three of these characters appearing in the next movie.
Maybe Venom? Since Sony is playing with it’s solo Venom movie again, under the watchful eye of Marvel.
So this time round, we see The Guardians of the Galaxy fight more bad guys and have epic space battles which will all seamlessly fit into the bigger Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Brace for impact as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 crash lands in theatres in 2017.
