We now have multiple trailers out, offering fans of Marvel's team of cosmic oddballs turned heroes a better look at the sequel film!
Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 is one of the most anticipated superhero films of 2017, and we here at Comicbook.com were lucky enough to be invited to the set of the film to talk with the cast and crew!
One of the Guardians franchise stars we had the pleasure of sitting down with was Zoe Saldana, who plays Thanos' estranged "daughter" (and all around badass female warrior) Gamora. The first Guardians made time to explore the relationship between Gamora and Thanos' other assassin "daughter," Nebula. Apparently, that relationship will only get more complicated in Vol. 2.
As Zoe Saldana describes, "Their dynamic, I think it's definitely volatile when it starts. Which is to be expected. And then you're gonna go in depth into understanding where they're both coming from, which I find really interesting. And I can't wait for you guys to see it unfold. Nebula's definitely a tough cookie, man. And she has a lot more issues than Gamora does. I mean, I guess I just feel like Gamora at least has friends.
When it comes to her relationship with Nebula, I appreciate what James Gunn did. He definitely heard what the fans were saying, you know. To see this relationship extensively unfold and see what they're about and, I mean, but through their relationship, you getting like a closer idea of what Thanos is really about. I think it's really interesting to open up that window. And he certainly has with this sequel.
You know, Nebula is just she's just lethal and Karen really delivers in this movie. More than she did in the first one. I mean, she was so good in the first movie that James couldn't kill her off. He had to find a way to bring her back, which I really appreciate."
