As Mr. Sunday Movies points out, creating his typical Easter egg and reference videos is not exactly an easy job when it comes to the next Guardians of the Galaxy film. James Gunn has pointed out this exact thing online in the past and he’s shared his concerns over people who manage to spoil movies in trailers, something he wants to avoid with Starlord’s next adventure. So with the trailer release on Saturday, you can be assured that most of what we see comes from the earlier, non-spoilery parts of the film. It begins a few months after the first film and now the team is well known, taking jobs across the galaxy and growing as a group.
We got to see a bunch of Baby Groot in the new trailer and he’s looking like the best part of the film yet again despite the very depressing news related to the character and his original form. There’s also the introduction for Mantis, who looks a lot better on screen than in the comics with green skin and some antennae. She’s far more visually interesting in the trailer and she’s also one of the few new bits we saw.
