Watch: Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailers give Marvel fans alot to look forward to
Looks like Marvel is putting out one good teaser after another to counter its rival DC's big releases, Wonder Woman and Justice League this year.
The Superbowl 2017 showcased two new teaser-trailers from Marvel's latest offerings: Logan and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
While Logan takes on a more somber, contemplative note, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 promises to be a film filled with light moments that is rare in the superhero genre (unless you're Deadpool).
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2
The sequel will follow the eclectic team of superheros led by Star Lord (Chris Pratt) as they try and take down the powerful Ayesha (played by Elizabeth Debicki).
The trailer starts out as Ayesha, better known as 'Paragon' or simply 'her' by comic book fans, makes a memorable entrance into the franchise with the phrase, "Just who the hell do you think you are?. She gives us a sort of a roll-call reminding us who the important characters are in the film will be rather than give us more details of the plot-line.
We also get glimpses of new Gaurdians: Mantis, Nebula, and Yondu who will fight along with Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and, of course, the fan favourite Baby Groot (Vin Diesel). Kurt Russell will play Star Lord’s father, Ego in the franchise.
Here's the trailer, which is set to set to a remix of Fleetwood Mac's 'The Chain.'
While Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 showcases the lighter side of the Marvel Universe, Logan takes us back to the days of darkness.
Based on X-men's Wolverine, the film is a look at an older Wolverine or 'Logan' as he is more commonly known, who lives incognito in a post apocalyptic world. He comes out of hiding to protect the very young Laura Kinney or X-23, who seems to have the same powers as him. Patrick Stewart joins the cast as Professor Xavier.
Though this teaser also doesn't give away much in terms of the plotline, one thing is for sure: The young Dafne Keene (who plays X-23) will join Hugh Jackman for the action scenes, which will make a very interesting combination.
There's no dialogue in the teaser: set to an hair-raising rendition of the song 'Amazing Grace' the trailer follows Logan accompanies Professor X and the young X-23 as they’re chased by a shadowy corporation. Earlier trailers have prominently featured music, such as Johnny Cash’s 'Hurt' and Kaleo’s 'Way Down We Go', and this teaser feels particularly effective with the song.
