Last night, Marvel Studios released the first incredible full-length trailer for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (if you missed it, you can check it out by clicking here).
Right now, it’s shaping up to be one of 2017’s best movies, and while an effort is clearly being made not to spoil too much of what’s to come, the trailer does spill the beans on some pretty massive moments from the highly anticipated Phase 3 release which will take us back into outer space. From Baby Groot to Mantis, there’s an awful lot to get excited about here!
So, read on for an in-depth look at the trailer’s ten biggest reveals as we examine what they might mean not only for this movie, but the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole.
10. The Abilisk
The creature we see the Guardians of the Galaxy go to war with throughout this trailer has been named as the Abilisk, but before you start turning to your comic book collection for clues on what its role will be here, the monster doesn’t actually hail from the source material! James Gunn has previously stated that the team is hired to take it down, so while it may look like Marvel has spoiled the movie’s big final battle, it’s entirely possible that this is actually just the opening as we kick things off by seeing what the team has been up to since deciding they need to, well, guard the galaxy! Regardless, it looks a formidable threat.
