'Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2' Teaser Poster And Trailer Give Us A Taste Of Their Next Adventure

Arguably one of Marvel's most surprisingly successful films, Guardians of the Galaxy even managed to catch comic book fans off guard with its charm. Fans have been anxiously waiting for their next opportunity to see Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, and Rocket Raccoon all on screen together again, and they won't have to wait too long. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to hit next May, and director James Gunn has already promised a much bigger film with higher stakes. A number of new characters will also be introduced including Mantis, and Peter Quill's father Ego played by Kurt Russell. Now we have a better idea of what to expect thanks to a teaser trailer that was just released by Marvel.

Below is the teaser poster released by James Gunn:
And below is the first teaser trailer:
Unlike this week's other trailers for Logan and Assassin's Creed, a Guardians 2 trailer wasn't exactly on the radar. James Gunn's release of the stylish teaser poster was already a big surprise from fans earlier this morning, but now we also have quite a bit of footage from the film. The trailer doesn't reveal much aside from some new looks for returning characters, and some of the new settings the characters will be heading to. We also get a great exchange between Drax and Star Lord that promises the same humor that made the first film so fun. 
We don't get anything to revealing of course, including a lack of footage of any of the new characters. The forrest planet that the team is seen likely belongs to Ego the Living Planet, who will be played by Russell. Its still unknown how that will work, and whether Russell is going to be playing a literal planet or a human form of it. We also only see the core group along with new member Yondu, but no signs of Mantis or even Baby Groot. Baby Groot will of course be back though as we can see in the poster, and considering how popular he was among fans in the first movie.
So what do you think of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 poster and trailer? Are you excited for the movie? Let us know below!
