The wait for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is almost over. The film is just about a month out from its ultimate release. With that in mind, Marvel Entertainment released another new TV spot this week for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which you can check out below.
In the new footage, Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) names off some of the film’s villainous factions. It seems Ayesha’s faction, the people with the golden skin, is called the Sovereign. The visuals definitely look impressive so far. Additionally, the sequel looks like it has not lost any of the trademark wit and humor of the original. It’s going to be interesting to see how characters like Yondu and Nebula end up joining the team, or at least how they briefly do this.
Despite the action-packed footage, it doesn’t seem the film has quite given away too much of the plot. Hopefully that’s a good sign and bodes well for how strong this movie will turn out to be. It’s always hard when a sequel has to come out for a beloved original. Finding that balance of making a sequel that escalates the story but still feels familiar to fans is something even the best filmmakers have trouble doing.
The upcoming sequel finally arrives in theaters next month on May 5.
