If you’re not excited for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, then you are in the wrong place. With just a few months left until the films release, the excitement and anticipation is mounting for the sequel to the film that shook the Marvel cinematic universe. As the release date approaches it is a definite that we will begin to see more more marketing for he film. It took us forever to get the first trailer after the poster dropped, but we will likely get a final trailer in the next few weeks, maybe even one during the Superbowl. James Gunn has promised to keep the marketing mysterious, but we did get a host of new images from set recently by way of USA Today
The new images showcase Yondu (Michael Rooker) with little baby Groot on his shoulder and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) by his side. We also get new images of Starlord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Nebula (Karen Gillian) and Drax (Dave Bautista), but no visuals of Kurt Russel’s Hugo the living planet yet.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 also stars Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, and Glenn Close. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in theaters on May 5, 2017. Check out the new images below.
