‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Trailer #2: Something Good, Something Bad

Published 11 months ago by , Updated May 20th, 2014 at 2:02 pm,

On Friday the embargo lifted on the first part of our Guardians of the Galaxy set visit coverage and we shared a lengthy and fun interview with Marvel’s newest star, Chris Pratt, who plays Peter Quill aka Star-Lord in the space-based adventure. We also shared a new poster and the news at the time that the long-awaited second full-length trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy would debut today, Monday May 19th, marking the second phase of the marketing push for the new property.

The debut occurred on the official Guardians of the Galaxy Facebook page after a Q&A session with director James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista and Karen Gillan. And leading up to the fan-focused social media event, each day over the weekend, Marvel released short 15-second teasers featuring brief glimpses of new action bits that’ll feature in the full-length trailer, and the voices of Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) and Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper).

One of these three videos even featured Groot, the large, walking tree, handing a flower to a little girl, emphasizing his role as the innocent member of the Guardians of the Galaxy roster, but we’ve yet to hear Vin Diesel voice the character’s three words: “I Am Groot.” Until now, that is.

The new trailer reveals quite a few additional details about the film, from Groot’s ability to grow roots, how Star-Lord’s mask and jet boots function, Ronan’s use of the Universal Weapon (his hammer staff), how the Nova Corps seemingly is forced to work with Star-Lord’s team of “losers” to save the planet Xandar (we also see the Milano hero ship leading a fleet of starships of the same design) and the space station known as ‘Knowhere’ which is inside the gigantic head of a Celestial (comic readers will be pleased to see that one).

We’ve yet to meet Michael Rooker’s blue-skinned Yondu character, one of the original Guardians of the Galaxy from Marvel Comics but we know his role is that of a father figure to Peter Quill (Pratt), and we still don’t know yet how the Nova Corps (led by John C. Reilly’s Rhomann Dey and Glenn Close’s Nova Prime Rael) will be adapted for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The official details hint that they might be a security force for the planet Xandar, but in the comics they protect and police the entire galaxy. They’re wearing very practical uniforms in the film, helmets and wrist-mounted blasters included, so we can’t tell if they have “super powers” like they do in the books and that may determine whether or not we’ll ever see characters like Richard Rider (the human character who becomes Nova Prime and had his own solo comics series) appear in the films or if there’s any chance of a Nova spinoff down the road.

Interestingly enough, the leaked description of the second GOTG trailer turned out to be 100% accurate.

Official Guardians of the Galaxy synopsis:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

  1. The only things I don’t like is that Drax is mostly red, and that that song, “Hooked on a Feeling”.

  2. On the subject of Thanos, who was the actor who made the brief appearance as Thanos in the Avengers credits? I thought maybe he was the one who would be playing him in the upcoming Marvel films.

    • That was just effects – no actor was cast at the time, and he had no lines in the mid-credits scene.

    • Damon Poitier.

    • Damion Poitier!

  3. Seriously screenrant please fix the subscription link. #getittogether

    • It’s fixed! Had the wizard council look at it.

  4. WOW…..I had reservations about the racoon like most people but THAT is just TOO GOOD…..great work….great looking all round…Chris Pratt looks awesome, Zoe to, the whole lot basically looks like it’s gonna GO OFF….can’t wait now….excited :-)

  5. Still trying to decide if this is gonna be enjoyable or stupid. Time will tell, I guess.

    • My money’s on stupid.

      • Well it is good to spoil yourself from time to time. So put your money were the movie is….August 1st….two birds one stone.

    • The two are not mutually exclusive. Personally, I think it looks great and like a lot of fun. 12 year old me can’t wait to see it.

    • phishing for reactions I see. you know it will be great… I will watch GotG way before Xmen: DERP

      • lol… DERP!

    • If it’s executed nicely and anything close to what it wants to be, I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy this. Wackiness, crazy action combined with 80′s culture reference, exactly the type of movie me and my friends tend to enjoy.

  6. #goingtoseethisinIMAXatmidnight

  7. This trailer was AWESOME!!

  8. I still think it will be watched only because it is a Marvel movie aimed at children. Wish Marvel went more the Cap 2 route, but i guess they like to have few highlights and just cruise by with their other films. Also i do hope this notification thing is fixed so i can comment without spamming my inbox in return.

  9. It’s insane how close this looks, feels, and sounds like the gotg comics. Can’t wait!

  10. I finally got around to watch this trailer and I gotta say that I liked it a lot more than the first one. Actually, there hasn’t been a thing coming from this movie that I haven’t liked so far (of course, script and story are big ones still to be seen), but they already got me invested just because of the originality and the visuals.

    I can’t wait to see the final product and I wish them a massive hit so they are encouraged to keep thinking out of the box. All my support to GotG!

  11. Looks awful! Most marvel films are garbage though.

    so super psyched for batman versus superman tho!

    • yeah with Lex “Zombieland” Luthor and Wonder Woman lite princess of the Anorexic. Supernam VS Batman: Suckerpunch 2 fooled you again shame on you. Hahahahahahahahahaha

    • If you’re going to troll for comments, you need to be a little more subtle.

      • I know right?

        I can’t wait for X-Men Days of Future Past, in theaters this Friday 5/23/14

        I also can’t wait for August and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

        Tee You Are Tee El Ee POWER!
        Tee You Are Tee El Ee POWER!

    • Then why watch the trailer anyway if you are a DC fanboy…seen your name is as lame as your comments….just go and post something about durpman and batsyboy on the respective threads…

  12. Hmmmmm seems like they are trying really hard with the trailers but….it just doesn’t looking interesting. At least to me.

  13. 3 pages of comments that consists of complaints about GotG is going to be suck, stupid, childish, and so on, over-the-moon excitement, and another battle between DC-Marvel fanboys.

    What do you expect from this movie? an anarchist talking raccoon and a humanoid tree that speaks like pokemon having a deep and emotional discussion about their past that makes everyone crying a river?

    As much as i love Batman (as he’s the first superhero i know, i love, and introduced me to the world of comic books), i gotta admit that i’m getting tired seeing batman movies over and over again. If it’s not batman, then it’s either superman or spider-man (i’m talking about the most recurring superhero that adapted into movies). MCU introduced us to movie version of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, and couple other comic book character, but it’s starting to get tiresome seeing Iron Man, Thor and Cap going tag team on releasing movies. GotG sure is a refreshing move, bringing C and D lister comic books characters that many just can dream about getting their own movies. This is bold move, you gotta admit it. If this movie is success in both financial and rating, the entire comic book adaptation is going to be very diverse. Should it’s failed *knock on wood* in either or both financial and rating, you got to give them point for trying.

    If you’re not going to like this movie because “no one has heard about them before” and “it’s being mainstream now”, do yourself and the rest of us a favor, just go back to your hipster corner that no one has heard about or drown yourself in the mainstream…

    • +17712732732….”drown yourself in the mainstream” that, was a proper line.

    • “Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and Constantine all happened YEARS before this.”

      That doesn’t invalidate what Observer said about Guardians of the Galaxy.

    • How many people knew V for Vendetta and Constantine were Comic book movies or DC movies for that matter? I for one sure didn’t. Except Constantine none of them are connected to mainstream DC universe anyway. Except being comic book movies they have nothing in common with GOTG.

      • Both of you are ignoring what was said in the OP which was this:

        “As much as i love Batman (as he’s the first superhero i know, i love, and introduced me to the world of comic books), i gotta admit that i’m getting tired seeing batman movies over and over again. If it’s not batman, then it’s either superman or spider-man (i’m talking about the most recurring superhero that adapted into movies).”

        None of this has anything to do with GoTG either. He’s suggesting that these characters are the only product that is available from certain companies, and therefore GoTG is “refreshing” which is absurd.

        Only acknowledging those characters completely disregards that DC has already gone into the territory of bringing much lesser known characters to the big screen even before Marvel Studios was formed.

        So, for pete sakes… be excited for GoTG all you want… but don’t act like it’s the first time a company has decided to make a movie about there lesser known characters… because it isn’t.

        • “He’s suggesting that these characters (Superman, Batman, Spider-man)are the only product that is available from certain companies”
          Given everyone is aware of the hugely popular movies of other lesser knows characters (Ironman, Thor) available right now, I’m not sure this is what he meant. He probably meant to say GOTG is the first time an almost unknown team of comic book characters connected to the mainstream continuity of it’s respective universe happening on screen.
          I also disagree with the “much lesser known characters” part. People who are familiar with GOTG comics of course knew about characters like Constantine or Watchman to a much greater extent given new GOTG team was introduced only 6 years back.

        • All Observer said was that he was tired seeing movies over and over again from certain characters (both from DC and Marvel by the way) and that Guardians of the Galaxy was a refreshing move in light of that. Nothing about those characters being the only product that is available.

          Only acknowledging those characters does not disregard that DC has brought lesser known characters to the big screen because not only was he never was talking about DC, that just change the fact those characters have had multiple movies over the past 15 years. Oh sure, he brought up Superman and Batman, but he also brought up Spider-Man and the MCU with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, etc. He’s talking about characters, not companies. Finally, he never said or implied that Marvel Studios making Guardians of the Galaxy was a first time anything. He said it was a refreshing move, not the first or only refreshing move in the history of CBMs.

          • that *doesn’t change the fact those characters have had multiple movies over the past 15 years.

        • You are right but you said it as years ago….soooooo…its been a while. The reason maybe its because its still a big risk making a movie of lesser known characters.

        • To a certain extent you are right, however Watchmen, V for Vendetta & Constatine are highly recognised comics with celebrated runs. Directors for years tried to get these films off the ground.How many people knew of the Guardians before the film was announced? how many directors tried to get it made? not so many I think, which made this film a risk

    • “Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and Constantine all happened YEARS before this.”

      @Dr Mindbender, I’m sorry, I don’t want to partake in this conversation but The Punisher (1989), Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (1998), and Blade (1998) were before those movies. It was until years later my friends and I found out that Blade was actually a Marvel comic.

      • Right. I’m not arguing that. The point I’m making is this isn’t the first time a studio has gone outside of their “marque” property and put it on the big screen, which is exactly the idea that was being put forth by the OP when he used the word “refreshing.”

        From the OP- “If this movie is success in both financial and rating, the entire comic book adaptation is going to be very diverse.”

        The way I see it, the entire comic book (movie) adaptations are already diverse, and that’s mostly because of what DC has to offer. Not trying to start a war with that statement, but let’s not be ignorant: DC has the more diverse movie product as of right now, and there really is no arguing that.(Marvel has nothing comparable to the movies already mentioned, and I’ll add History of Violence and a Road to Perdition to the mix for good measure) That doesn’t make DC better or Marvel worse, I’m just forwarding the idea that diversity in comic book movie adaptations already exists whether or not GoTG does.

        Don’t get me wrong, I completely agree that this is a bold move. (C’mon man, y’know I’ve been supporting this from day 1)

        However, I can’t sit here and say that there is anything “innovative” or “fresh” about this… but it certainly is bold.

        • Guardians of the Galaxy is original as there has never been a comic book movie like it before. Just because there have been original films in the past it doesn’t mean that Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t original (it is). It is different and new, the very definition of original fresh. And you cannot say that you have seen any comic book movie like Guardians before.

          As for whether or not DC is more diverse currently when it comes to films I have two responses depending on what you mean by ‘as of right now’. If your including every film ever made then I have to agree with you but if you mean by right now within the last 5 years and for the foreseeable future then I disagree. Marvel has produced a range of films within the last five years and has many more on the way or in development while DC has only made Batman and Superman films for the last few years. The only different thing they have confirmed that is on the way is Justice League. Even if DC does make Sandaman then I believe Marvel will be ahead (at that point) as they have crafted their films into sub genres such as fantasy, sci-fi, historical drama, adventure and team-ups, with a space opera and a heist based film on the way. And if we’re talking just about superhero films then Marvel is way ahead of the pack when it comes to diverse feature films overall (Note: Vendetta, Perdition and History of Violence are not superhero films). In fact the opening commenter was talking solely about superhero films I think. However I also think that comic book movies are already diverse- sorry for going on about that one thing you said,

          To sum up, I disagree that Guardians isn’t original (remember several films can be original), agree that DC has led diversity in films in the past but also think that Marvel will lead in the future while I too think that comic book films are fresh and diverse without Guardians. To be honest, I don’t really care and just want good quality films (although I do have an opinion) as you seem to as well. I’m with you in anticipation for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’.

        • “The point I’m making is this isn’t the first time a studio has gone outside of their “marque” property and put it on the big screen, which is exactly the idea that was being put forth by the OP when he used the word ‘refreshing.’”

          @Dr Mindbender, I would have to agree with you that this isn’t the first time. I think the first time was when they filmed two young ladies smoking cigarettes in black and white. I think that was the first boldest move in cinema, decades back… maybe a century back.

          Also IMO it isn’t right to compare DC live action movie adaptions to Marvel live action movie adaptions. The comparisons should be between WB, Sony, Fox, and Disney/Marvel Studios.

          For me, I’m just as excited for Ant-Man as I am Batman vs Superman as I am Venom as I am X-Men: Apocalypse. However I hold Guardians of the Galaxy above everything else.

  14. Where is the link for the trailer cant find it

    • It was here last night, now I came back it’s gonished!

      • It’s still there – it’s a Facebook embed at the very top of the post. If you don’t see it right away, give it a few seconds to load and blame Zuckerberg ;)

        • You’re right. I disabled the WidgetBlock chrome extension and it came back. Worked fine yesterday.

  15. Hearing Rocket’s voice, i wish it was David Tennant voicing him like it was rumoured. Cooper sounds a bit off, but i’m sure they cast him within good reason and will wait for the cinema release. Maybe the voice’ll grow on me.

    • That Tennant thing was completely false and madeup by that Facebook fan page. I confirmed it and wish that page would be removed.

  16. That looks hilarious…… just a simple bit of good fun.

    Not familiar with the GotG comic…. does it have the same vibe or is this something that the director has brought to it to counteract the inherent silliness of the characters.

    Either way, this is now a must see :)

  17. I hate to admit it, but Bradley’s voice actually sounds good as Rocket.
    I hope Nova Corps. will get more screen time or are they just canon-fodder for the Kree ?

    Can’t wait til August. Meantime gotta watch X-Men this weekend.

  18. Three things :
    1. A new Star Wars is born.
    2. Light on seriousness, heavy on action – smart creative call.
    3. Gamora’s ass rocks.

  19. I just keep getting more and more excited for this film. It just looks like an absolute blast. Which is what these films truly are all about. Also for the love of all that’s good can we stop this Marvel vs DC crap? Do we have have to Twilight this? Can’t we love both and want both to succeed and give us fantastic movies year in and year out? Because that’s all I want.

    • Exactly. I enjoy both DC and Marvel stuff tremendously and can’t say that I miss anything by not engaging in that ridiculous fanboy trench warfare.

    • I don’t think people are criticizing it because it’s Marvel. They’re criticizing it because it looks terrible. I like both Marvel and DC, I actually prefer Marvel, but this looks plain awful.

      • I agree, im not digging this at all. It just idk seems to….stupid seems to be a mean thing to say, but stupid. I love all the marvel films(minus ironman 3) and im super hyped on bvs and the dc train, but this just seems stupid. Zoe saldona is playing a kick ass blue…um…green alien. Vin dieslel is fire wood, and the dork from the 5 yr engagement is star lord…and drax looks rather silly. Im still on the fence, but i may wait on this one.

      • But terrible to who? That’s the real question.

  20. Finally got a chance to actually watch the new trailer; meaning watch it 3 times in a row and pause every frame of the way at full screen with surround sound headphones.

    Ronan looks sick!! I wonder if the guys with the black hoods circling around him are the Universal Church of Truth.

    Also noticed the Spartax Fleet coming out from behind a star. Seems like that star is the Xandarian sun and the Spartax Fleet are coming to aid the Xandarian Fleet. The scale of the space battles seem to look epic!! Two allied fleets fighting the enemy fleet and the Guardians in the middle, couldn’t of been more like the comic!!

    Tbh it has come to the point where no matter the outcome, this movie will deff have a rating of 6/10 to 10/10. There is no possible way for it to be less imo. Everything about it (in adaption to the MCU) has been perfect!! So pumped!!!

  21. HOLY CRAP! All of these clowns crying over Rocket’s voice! Since his first meeting with the Hulk nothing really addressed his accent. His rabbit friend on the other hand did have one. Seeing how he was inspired by a Beatles’ song it should be one that of Liverpool and not Cockney. Trust me they don’t sound alike. You can see who jumped on the bandwagon with Rocket recently vs older fans. don’t get me wrong; WELCOME ALL TO THE AWESOME THAT IS GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY but, don’t act like his voice will ruin the film just because it was in a video game or one cartoon with an accent. Heath Ledger sounds nothing like Mark Hamill. Ryan Renyolds didnt speak like Nathon Fallon… People still threw money at The Dark Knight Rises knowing Bale would just growl out lines and sound NOTHING like Mister Batman Kevin Conroy. This isn’t Marvel vs Capcom 3 or Avengers: Earth’s Mightest Heroes this is the M-C-U. If you can’t get past an accent you might want to sit this one out. Seriously the Xmen movies get messed up compared to their source and Rocket’s speech pattern is an issue.

    • Well, you have a point! You when a bit hard there near the end. But, I can’t say it’s a bad thing. +1 For you!

  22. Rocket’s voice is just fine. And after we hear more of it, it will likely move beyond ‘just fine’ and into ‘great.’ It seems like people are griping just because they assumed he would have a cockney or other british accent, just because he does in the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 game. The british accent is one interpretation, but it’s not even canon.

    maybe I’m wrong, maybe people have other complaints about it. it seems to me that people don’t remember (or never knew) how to separate “what I wanted” and “what is actually good or bad.” Seems like people automatically dismiss or hate something if it’s not exactly what they wanted, when in fact something can be good even if its different.

  23. Let’s face it – This is going to be another smash hit for MARVEL !
    Yet more multi millions in the bank – and making sure we have plenty of superhero movies for the future !
    DC can try keeping up if they can.

    • “Yet more multi millions in the bank”

      Uh-huh. And just what percentage of those dollars are you getting?

      DC started this game. The truth is, Marvel is the one playing catch-up.

      I’m all about Marvel praise, but if you can’t do it without slamming DC you have no right saying a damn thing.

      • I think X-Men started the game in 2000, if the game refers to the mainstreaming of the modern superhero movie genre.

        • The game you refer to is the Marvel movie game, which if we are going to split hairs in that regard you are still wrong… Blade was successful and came before X-Men.

          Superheroes were ‘mainstreamed’ before X-Men Rob, we both know this.

          Richard Donner and Tim Burton say “hello.”

          Again, I don’t mind Marvel praise, they deserve it… but do it with some class and some respect, meaning don’t take shots at the property who made this all possible to begin with.

          • And both those franchises ended…. for a decade or more. When X-Men began, followed by Spider-Man, it began the non-stop train to larger franchises, which paved the way for spinoffs, shared universes, etc. which are still continuing and growing now.

        • Marvel is playing catch up? Really??? You are going there? It doesnt matter who made more movies. I rather have constant good movies than bad ones so i really dont know what kind of catch up you mean because if its the amount of movies….yes. The question after that is: Does anybody really care? The answer is NO. People care about quality. I like Man of Steel but Captain America 2 tops it in my books. It even tops The Dark Knight Rises for me, wich i found too long and had parts that i just found boring. But quality is different for everybody so if you mean quality then i can certainly understand your viewpoint even if i disagree with it. And playing catch up is what DC is doing for its shared universe by putting too much characters in Superman VS Batman. Marvel had most of its characters established in other movies and had a build up to have them more on screen and finaly bring them all together in The Avengers. Catching up will not bring better movies but ultimately worse ones because it will hurt the quality of the movie….just some food for thought.

          • Yes. Marvel is playing catch-up. Really.

            Marvel doesn’t own the icons, which is why it took several movies to establish who the Avengers are.

            This is not the case with DC.

            DC has the privilege of owning the most globally recognized comic book characters, without needing solo films to establish who they are.

            Exactly why DC can get away with bringing forth several characters in BvS and then move directly into Justice League.

            Cyborg will get a back story… probably to the tune of what happened in JL:War

            The rest of them… (speaking in theory, we don’t know who will show up) Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern… these characters are already globally established icons whether or not they have a solo film prior to BvS or JL.

            “This isn’t the way Marvel did it”

            No kidding. DC doesn’t need to do it that way, because DC isn’t the one playing catch-up. ;)

            • Seriously??? Playing “catchup”? At least their casting choices are sound. Casting that kid as Lex or Affleck as Batman must have been done by a panel of squirrels. Their casting decisions alone indicate that they need help.

              • I love it when people rag on casting decisions prior to a film they haven’t seen simply because “they don’t see it”:

                • Marvel still owns the icons…not for movies at least for a time being. Usualy these contracts are time based, see it as a loan. Nothing wrong with that. But you are wrong by the way. The reason that DC is pushing so much characters in to a movie is BECAUSE they are playing catch up. Marvel already established its shared universe. Marvel didn’t need put out stand alone movies. They could have done an Avengers movie from the get go. Just remember that Marvel and Dc have characters that are not established characters. Just because you know them doesn’t mean everybody knows them (with some exeptions of course). Marvel chose to make stand alone movies to broden the recognision of its characters to the movie audiences. Rome wasn’t built in a day you know and a shared universe is always a work in progress. It has nothing to do with your innitial comment. If that was so why did DC make that awfull Green Lantern movie….hey a stand alone movie what the heck.

                  “DC has the privilege of owning the most globally recognized comic book characters, without needing solo films to establish who they are.”

                  The first part is not even proven and to be honest nobody should care. And not needing solo films…sorry to burst your bubble…wrong again.
                  The fact is that Marvel’s shared universe long term plan that they do in phases is working. You can see it in revenue and in reviews. On its individiual level, DC still has to prove that and they are still at the begining of making its shared universe. And as a fan of both their hero’s and villians i really hope they succeed. Competition between the 2 is what makes better movies for of us. I am just concerned that DC is going to fast in this so called Catch Up race. Actually there is a race because they want there to be a race. If they just ignore it and go an pave their own road they can achieve so much more. I blame the excecutives and shareholders…ussually they want results too fast. Food for thought again.

                  PS to be honest i dont have a problem with Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. He was awsome in Now You See Me…great actor

            • When DC made Green Lantern, it made less (domestically and worldwide) than the Incredible Hulk (Marvel Studios lowest grossing movie to date). Green Lantern had a bigger budget, more theaters, and 3D and IMAX 3D.

      • “The truth is, Marvel is the one playing catch-up.”

        Couldn’t disagree more. They’re not playing catch-up. With their cinematic universe, they started an entirely new game.

        • Just ignore when the biggest DC fanboy on this site comment on an article about Marvel.

          • Yes, ignore the truth… and only see and believe what you choose.

            Again… I’m all about supporting Marvel… but if you do it with an inferiority complex to the tune of slamming DC just for the sake of slamming them I will be there to interject.

            So, either don’t do that… or be prepared to deal with someone who can provide a counter to your nonsense.

            • You can only brag about bringing the truth when your truth has some credibility behind it, in the meantime we only gonna seat here and laugh at you fanboy!

              • Yeah, fanboy… ouch I’m so hurt.

                Please refrain from such strong counter arguments. My fragile little psyche can’t handle such a superior intellect, Drax.

                I wouldn’t engage me further on this.

                Full disclosure: I’m excited for Guardians too, and will be there opening night.

                However, I’m also a huge DC fan (can you tell?) and for the most part I keep off of these Marvel threads so you kids can have fun in your sandbox… but every so often I will come to kick that sand in your eyes

                • Lmao!!! A blind DC fanboy talking about kicking sand in people’s eyes! How ironic is that!

                  • LOL.

                    You can have the last word brother, it’s all yours.

                    I’m bored anyway.

                    X-Men Days of Future Past in theaters this Friday.

                    • And Drax, stop putting more fuel to the fire….

  24. i get that Star Wars feeling

    • Totally. This has “The Phantom Menace” written all over it.

      • Go watch your Bay movies and the new Transformers trailer multiple times over and stay out of any GOTG related article troll!

        • You “Drax” could learn that people are free to express their opinion. If he wants to complain or you want to praise, both should be posted. This is not either the marvel or dc (or whatever else) cheerleader forum.

  25. I think they’re overdoing it with the kitschy pop music in these trailers. Hooked On A Feeling was cool the first time, but this one could’ve done better with a better choice of song.

  26. A seventeen second trailer tells you next to nothing about the movie. Let’s all wait until we can see more of the film.

    • Which link did you click in?

    • The actual full-length trailer is at the very top of the post. If you don’t see it right away, give it a few seconds to load.

  27. i havent seen it mentioned but im interested in the brief glimpse of the collector (from the credits at the end of thor) and now in the trailer for gotg.

  28. Well finaly ! The new trailer sells it alot better for me then the previous ones

    • i could`t disagree more. I think the first was perfect (this one is also great) in that it didn`t give away the whole story, and yet it was clever, with a lot of well placed humour thrown into the mix and made it seem like a movie with a talking racoon could actually work. Most trailers today show you almost the entire movie within their 2 minutes or so. All the trailers suggest overwhelmingly that this will be a fun and successful movie and remembered fondly – something along the lines of the first Iron Man flick.

  29. What makes GotG so appealing to me is the possibility of having a full-on action adventure film sans the romantic cheese and complex character backstories that have watered down the DC movies and have been kept in check really well by Marvel’s writers.

    It’s unbelievable that people are so bitter about these Marvel films! They are giving us SOLID films with attention to detail in both appearance and plot. I’m really not sure what all the whining is about.
