The universe needs saving again, and there’s no one more suited to the job than a group of misfits known as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. A new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 debuted on Tuesday night, and by the looks of it, the Guardians have their work cut out for them.
This new trailer features Nebula (Karen Gillan), a secondary villain from the first film now returning to clash with the Guardians. We also get our first look at golden villain Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki), sitting atop a throne and promising to “cleanse the universe” of weaknesses like fear, jealousy, and betrayal.
But the trailer’s biggest reveal comes at the tail end, when Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) gets a surprise visit from an older man (played by Kurt Russell) — who reveals himself to be Peter’s long-lost dad.
Because the next big villain of Marvel’s cinematic universe is Thanos, and Thanos shares Marvel’s cosmic universe with the Guardians, there’s some interest in seeing how this sequel (and to some extent Thor: Ragnarok, which comes out in November) sets the table for Avengers: Infinity War Part I (which comes out in May 2018) and the Guardians, Thanos, and the existing Avengers together.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters in July.
