Marvel Studios has released a brand-new 30-second commercial for "Gardens of the Galaxy" ... er, wait a minute, Gardens? We mean, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2."
Featuring some new footage including a tongue-in-cheek exchange between Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and her evil sister Nebula (Karen Gillan), who's a bit confused about the whole "Guardian" name, the spot basically highlights the group's heroic efforts to save the galaxy for a second time, despite impossible odds.
"There's a thousand of them," says Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) in the above clip. "And five of us!" To which Drax (Dave Bautista) replies, "These odds are terrible. We need new odds."
Drax might be referring to the fact that the Guardian team will be adding a couple of new players, namely Nebula, space raider Yondu (Michael Rooker), and newcomer Mantis (Pom Klementieff), who was raised by Star-Lord's long-lost father, Ego (played by Kurt Russell).
Written and directed by James Gunn and featuring the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel as Rocket and Baby Groot, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" will open nationwide May 5th.
Set to the backdrop of 'Awesome Mixtape 2,' Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team's adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill's true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes' aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
