Marvel Studios just dropped an awesome new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, and while the short trailer teased various new characters, the most notable addition is a possible villain in the film, Ayesha.
Portrayed by Elizabeth Debicki (The Man From U.N.C.L.E), Ayesha is often referred to as “Her” in Marvel Comics. The character was a creation of The Enclave who also created “Him” known to Marvel fans as Adam Warlock. According to director James Gunn, Warlock won’t appear in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel but it’s interesting to see that Ayesha is being introduced in a major role.
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their new-found family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn (Slither). The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt (Jurassic World) as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora; Dave Bautista (Spectre) as Drax; Vin Diesel (Furious 7) as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper (American Sniper) as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker (Jumper) as Yondu; Karen Gillan (The Big Short) as Nebula; and Sean Gunn (Gilmore Girls) as Kraglin.
