Star Lord says it pretty well here, the Guardians of the Galaxy are made up of a thief, two thugs, an assassin, and a maniac. I tend to believe that this segment of Marvel heroes is one of their bigger, yet still lesser known groups, as compared to that of The Avengers and the X-Men. A few older posts that I made about Guardians of the Galaxy earlier in the year should get you caught up to speed with our incarcerated-heroes-incarnate. I’ll put them below the trailer. Now hurry up and stop reading and watch the new trailer!!!
Guardians of the Galaxy: Official Tailer #2
And now the links I promised…
There… that should sufficiently get you caught up on our friends known as the Guardians of the Galaxy.
So what are we seeing in this trailer that should help us have a better grasp for what this movie is probably about? Remember the hidden credits scene from Thor 2: The Dark World? We’re introduced to a character who is called The Collector. He quickly gets identified as a villain if you weren’t aware of it already. Check it out if you don’t quite recall what I’m talking about.
If you don’t recall seeing that guy from the new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, let me help out a little bit once more…
He was one of those quick shots that easily can go unrecognized if you didn’t already know who he was or just weren’t paying that much attention. Lets just go ahead and bet on him being a big deal in this film.
Between The Avengers and Thor 2: The Dark World, two very big elements have been introduced. Those two elements are referred to as “infinity stones”, and if you’re aware of what those are, you know there’s 6 of them. That also might help explain the quote from the Thor 2 credits scene, “One down… five to go.” The description given to us of the Guardians of the Galaxy is, “Futuristic ex-cons who have something everyone wants.” That sounds like a description that might attract the attention of a guy with less than admirable intentions, known as, The Collector. Sounds like we have a villain and a general plot pretty well laid out.
The infinity stones also aim in a direction to a certain other evil somebody known as, Thanos. Who exactly is Thanos, you say? How about this guy that got dangled in front of your face during the hidden credits scene in The Avengers…
Yeah… him. I’m not going to go into his back story, but unless there’s a giant curve ball Marvel is planning on throwing somewhere along the way, Thanos is going to rock your world and every other world in the universe.
It’s that time again. Hit me up down in the comments and let me know whats on your mind with this new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer.
