You only get one chance to save the galaxy….twice.
So says the brand new TV spot for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, which is amped up with a rocking beat and plenty of kick ass footage. Check it out below:
Not only do we get to see some great new fooatge including Dave Bautista’s Drax completely losing it, and Vin Diesel’s Baby Groot messing around with Peter Quill’s walkman, but we may just have an insight into the third track for the eponymous Awesome Mix Volume Two.
If anyone would be rocking out to David Bowie it would of course be Star Lord himself, and Gunn appears to have selected the late rocker’s thumping track ‘Suffragette City’ from his legendary 1972 LP The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars for inclusion in the film.
Gunn has openly admitted that he entertained discussions about casting Bowie in the film before the singer’s tragic death in 2016. While it’s sad that we never got to see the multi-talented artist appear in a Marvel film, it’s a great tribute from Gunn to include such a wicked song in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
The film will arrive in cinemas on April 27 in New Zealand and Australia, and on May 5 in the US and UK.
