First, there was the concept art and poster showing the entire Guardians of the Galaxy gang ready for more action. Next came the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 teaser trailer that debuted in Brazil. It eclipsed the trailer views for Avengers: Age of Ultron in the first 24 hours since release. Everyone’s favorite gang of intergalactic misfits are definitely back.
The first 24 hours, since the Marvel sequel of Guardians of the Galaxy was released, generated 81 million views online, surpassaing Marvel Studios’ cinematic history only by the trailer of Captain America: Civil War, which got 94 million views during the first day.
The enormous number of people checking out what lies next for Star-Lord (played by Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), and the reborn Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) reflects Marvel fans’ excitement about the upcoming film.
Engaging Characters, Offbeat Humor & Cool Music in Marvel Sequel
Vin Diesel, who lends his voice to Groot, wrote on his Facebook that he is “so proud” to be a part of the Marvel universe. He also re-posted on his Instagram account James Gunn’s post a few days ago that he had just premiered the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 teaser trailer in Brazil’s Comic-Con Experience and laid witness to a “warm and wonderful crowds.”
It was a great moment for him, the American director said. His Instagram followers took the occasion to express their excitement for Baby Groot, who is both goofy and cute. Director James Gun happily posted his gratitude on Facebook, mentioning how Baby Groot and Mantis, along with the rest of the zany bunch, were welcomed “with open arms.”
The central characters featured in the teaser trailer all catch the eye as they engage in the same level of banter and humor seen in the first film. In Guardians of the Galaxy 2, new characters like Ego the Living Planet (Kurt Russell) and a different kind of Groot (though still voiced by Vin Diesel) get ample screen time. Also noteworthy are the catchy tunes of the vibrant 70s hits that are part of the new mixtape. The song used in the teaser trailer, Fox on the Run by Sweet, soared to number one on the iTunes Rock Chart.
