Smaller Groot, same laughs? Groovy Guardians of a Galaxy 2 teaser channels original’s irreverence

Hit play on the mixtape: the Guardians of a Galaxy are behind for what looks to be another riotous space frisk in a new teaser trailer expelled by Marvel Studios on Wednesday.

Guardians of a Galaxy Vol. 2 picks adult with a title’s squad of ruffians carrying degraded Ronan the Accuser and now questioning a mysteries of Star-Lord’s lineage.   

When Guardians of a Galaxy first burst onto a shade in 2014, it was a lovely change from the increasing strident genre of superhero films. 

Former fear executive James Gunn delivered a film that didn’t take itself too seriously, while wrapping a movie’s outer-space movement with a DayGlo colour intrigue and acquire lurch of optimism. Starring Chris Pratt as a indisputable space smugger Peter Quill/Star-Lord, a movie also helped cement the former TV actor’s film career.

This new teaser promises some-more of same. Back is that groovy ’70s soundtrack, with Blue Swede’s Hooked on a Feeling backing the fresh footage. Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket a Raccoon and even a tiny Groot (Awwwww!) all make an appearance.

But a doubt remains: can writer-director Gunn strike a same irreverent records that done a initial film mount out? 

There’s reason to trust the sequel could be as bizarre and loopy as a initial film. For instance, GGV2 will feature Kurt Russell as one of a many surprising characters in a Marvel comic book universe: Ego a Living Planet

Plus, as an aged West Coast Avengers reader, I’m psyched to see Canadian actor Nathan Fillion as Simon Williams/Wonder Man. In a comics, a impression was a C-list superhero who incited his luminary into a Hollywood career. I can’t consider anyone improved to play a ham than Fillion.  

Guardians of a Galaxy Vol.2 opens in theatres May 5, 2017.
