Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 gets new trailer during Super Bowl
| Last updated
The third installation of the Marvel movie saga has had a rocky production history. It was originally meant to come out in 2020, but was delayed after director James Gunn was sacked for offensive tweets in July 2018 and then rehired eight months later.
The trailer aired during the ad break for the biggest televised US sporting game of the year, the Super Bowl, and fans are losing their minds already.
The teaser starts with a rather hungover-looking Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) being stirred from his dreary slumber by Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) as Pratt says: "Let me tell you something, I'm Star-Lord. I formed the Guardians. Met a girl. Fell in love.
"That girl died... but then she came back."
He's then shoved forcefully by a disgruntled Gamora (Zoe Saldaña) and calls her a 'dick'.
The trailer is soundtracked by an epic rendition of killer 1979 anthem 'Since You've Been Gone' by Rainbow and features some incredible-looking action scenes, as well as brief-yet-harrowing snippets of Rocket Raccoon's younger years.
Complete with awesome space battle scenes and a few new characters along the way, this moving teaser has got us pumped for what's in store.
The trailer continues with punch-packing scene after punch-packing scene complimented by text reading: "This May it's time to face the music."
Gunn has said Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be the final film with the current line-up of the team, and fans are getting emotional at saying goodbye to beloved characters.
Fans who have just watched the trailer have already taken to Twitter to share their predictions of what's to come. One said: "I'm telling ya, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 it's gonna be so epic."
Another simply commented on all of the thrilling Super Bowl trailers we've been treated to, saying: "I feel like a kid on Christmas morning between The Flash, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, & Indiana Jones trailers."
One person who watched the trailer on YouTube has left a very sombre comment, reading: "From fighting on other space planets, to fighting alongside the Avengers, and now with one last ride coming, we're sure going to miss this group."
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to hit cinemas on May 5.
