Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues its marketing blitz with a test screening Monday night (critics’ reactions from the screening are rounded up here), the cast assembling on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and two more TV spots, including the video above which Vin Diesel (he is Groot) posted on his ridiculously-popular Facebook page with the message “We are…” This is one of the funniest moments from any promo video so far:
Groot: “I am Groot.”
Rocket Raccoon: “They were not looking at you funny.”
Whatever that sweet baby angel Groot just did (probably this), I’m sure they had it coming.
And here’s another TV spot to remind us Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens on May 5th, and that’s coming much sooner than you might think.
Marvel and James Gunn have also released a new set of international character posters with an ’80s neon theme.
And, in keeping with the ’80s theme, Marvel also released five “album cover” character posters inspired by classic vinyl album art.
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.
