The music from Guardians Of The Galaxy was one of the best things about the film. The infusion of 1970s and 1980s music was a refreshing break from the mundane Marvel scores. When director James Gunn announced the title of the sequel would be Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, it just supported the fact that there would be a strong music vibe again. We got a hint of that when we heard “Come A Little Bit Closer” by Jay and the Americans and “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac during the film’s panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this summer.
Now with Doctor Strange just mere weeks away from release, Marvel and Disney can kick off their marketing campaign for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 by releasing a poster, which looks like something straight off of a cover of an 80s or 90s punk rock band album cover. Check it out here below.
All of the Guardians are present and accounted for, yes even baby Groot, although you might miss him if you don’t know where to look. Hint: look at Star-Lord’s (Chris Pratt) leg. The poster also confirms that Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) will be joining the team.
Considering the timing of the release of this poster and Doctor Strange opening in theaters in just a few weeks, it’s safe to say that we should be expecting Marvel to release a teaser trailer. The teaser could be condensed version of what we saw at SDCC. Rumor is that it will run at a minute and a half.
Starring Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, and Kurt Russell star, with Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in theaters on May 5, 2017.
