There have been various rumors regarding Ego. The second return of the galaxy heroes on the big screen will give a proper introduction to the new character. Kurt Russell will portray the role of Ego the Living Planet. The fans of the comic books will recognize Ego as a regular old planet with a desire to conquer other planets.

The latest preview included some scenes which featured the infant plant, Baby Groot. The trailer also emphasized on the team’s bonding moments while on board their spaceship. Like the previous trailers, the recent promo also focused on the humor. There are scenes that revealed the film’s action sequences. However, the best moments in the trailer came from the interactions of the team members.

Marvel set the trailer’s backdrop to the Awesome Mixtape #2. The new trailer gave a glimpse on the guardians’ meeting with Ayesha, a new villain which the guardians have to put down. Ayesha is the high priestess on Sovereign. The trailer showed Rocket Raccoon did not live up to the expectations, where outsiders think that the people of the Sovereign are ‘conceited douchebags.’ Fans can hop on the bandwagon when the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits the theaters on May 5.
