Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 fans rejoice! Not only have we been treated to a fresh new trailer featuring the first official look at Kurt Russell as Ego the Living Planet, we also have our first look at a new movie poster courtesy of fan-favorite director James Gunn.
The poster, which you can see in its full glory below, shows the Guardians we've come to know and love in addition to new Guardians members Yondu, Nebula, and Mantis. Ayesha, the film's primary antagonist, can be seen peeking out in the middle of the background and Peter Quill's starship, the Milano, is also showcased.
