The Odds are Rough in new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 TV Spot

We’ve got some fresh footage from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios have released a new TV spot.

The new spot looks at the tough odds always up against our Guardians, and, with the trouble some folks are having (cough Nebula cough) with the team’s name in the first place. The humor’s there, per usual, and once again Drax (Dave Bautista) steals snippet of a scene we see him in.

The whole gang returns for Vol. 2, including Star-lord himself, Chris Pratt (Jurassic World, Parks and Recreation), Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek) as Gamora, the aforementioned Dave Bautista (SPECTRE) as Drax, Vin Diesel (xXx, Furious 7) as the voice of Baby Groot, Bradley Cooper (Joy, American Sniper) as the voice of Rocket, Michael Rooker (Slither, Jumper) as Yondu, Karen Gillan (Doctor Who, The Big Short) as the aforementioned Nebula, and Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Gilmore Girls) as Kraglin. New cast members include Drax’s love interest, Mantis, played by Pom Klementieff (Oldboy), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, Everest) as the gold-hued Ayesha, and Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight, Furious 7) as Ego, the Living Planet.

Written and directed by James Gunn, Vol. 2 is set to the soundscape of Peter Quill’s Awesome Mixtape #2, as the team journey across the cosmos in search of Peter’s dad, finding new friends (and enemies, lots of enemies) along the way.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5.
