SPOILER ALERT: This contains two clips from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’. They’re from the first part of the movie, though, so they might not be TOO spoiler-y. Your call.
Thankfully (THANK-FUL-LY) Disney has gotten a little more ‘Star Wars’ with their marketing of their Marvel properties, meaning that unlike ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, I haven’t seen the entirety of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ in jumbled order before I get to see it on the big screen in the proper order. (Then again, there are still four more days to go.)
It seems that all the trailers and promo clips from ‘Guardians 2’ have been of the first hour or so of the movie and not much is spoiled. We already knew Kurt Russell was somehow going to play the human embodiment of Ego the living planet from the comics. And that Ego was going to turn out to be Peter Quill/Star-Lord’s father.
These clips hint at that, so once again, TURN BACK if you want to avoid SPOILERS!
The first clip is not THAT spoiler-y but is pretty funny. In the comics, “Rocket” is fully known as “Rocket Raccoon.” It turns out the movie version, voiced by Bradley Cooper, doesn’t like being called a “Raccoon.” So what does Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord come up with? Well, watch the clip to see:
And the second clip introduces the team to Ego. At least a human version of him, as well as Pom Klementieff’s Mantis, although she doesn’t speak in the clip. But this sets up her joining the team as the film goes on.
Watch for yourself below:
Trash panda! GOLD!
We, here in the U.S., have a few days to go before we can enjoy this splendor. But ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ has already taken in over $100 million worldwide and has a fantastic 89% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
