Thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Teaser Trailer
Two Notes. One, I know this trailer came out a few days ago. I just didn't feel like making a blog post about it until now. And two, the trailer has a word in it that is not BZP appropriate, so I can't post it here. But you can find it on Youtube easy enough.
As for what I thought of the new trailer, I liked it. As with the first 'teaser trailer,' this one doesn't really give us an indication on what the story is going to be about. It's either characters talking among themselves and just clips of actions scenes. I don't have a problem with this at all, since the story isn't spoiled in this as trailers for other movies have done.
I do have two concerns though. One is Drax's character. It definitely seems like he's going to have a bigger comedic role in this one than in the first movie. I'm okay with him being a little more comical, but I just hope it isn't overdone. I hope he still has some dramatic material to work with in this films's story.
My other concern is Baby Groot. I watched someone on Youtube talk about both trailers for this movie, and he brought up that Marvel could keep Groot in his baby form in it to help sell Baby Groot toys. I can see people wanting to own such a toy, so I could see Marvel doing something like this. But as long as the character is used right in the story, I don't have a problem with him being a baby for the majority or all of the film. I just hope he's grown up by the time he shows up in another Marvel movie after this one.
But even with those concerns, I'm still really excited to see this movie. I really enjoyed the first Guardians of the Galaxy, and I hope that this one will be just as enjoyable.
What did you guys think of this new trailer?
