Marvel just premiered the second trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the action-packed followup to the 2014 blockbuster starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooperand Vin Diesel.
And while plot points from the intergalactic space flick are still mostly under wraps (this is Marvel after all), the two-minute teaser gives fresh insight into everyone’s favorite character, Baby Groot!
The walking, talking tree (voiced by Diesel) made his long-awaited debut in GOTG Vol. 2’s first trailer, and as the latest sneak peek reveals, he’s just as adorable and oh-so-comical as we had hoped. When Rocket Raccoon (Cooper) tries to keep Baby Groot from detonating a bomb, the little guy simply replies, “I am Groot” over and over again while attempting to press the fatal button.
Even more drama appears to be brewing between Star-Lord (Pratt) and Gamora (Saldana), as an encounter with a mind-reading alien reveals Pratt’s character is feeling some type of way about his female counterpart.
“Love for her,” the creature tells Star-Lord while pointing at Gamora, who appears less-than pleased at the revelation. Cue Drax the Destroyer’s (Dave Bautista) uncontrollable fit of laughter as he responds, “She just told everyone your deepest, darkest secret! You must be so embarrassed!
Then there’s the not-to-be missed, classic rock soundtrack, which this time around will feature Sweet‘s “Fox on the Run.”
