Production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 has officially begun, so break out your campaign and put on Awesome Mix Vol. 1 for the ten-thousandth time, because we need to celebrate. The entire original main cast of Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper are back, joined by several new faces. Newcomer Pom Klementief has been confirmed to be playing the team’s third green-skinned member, the alien Mantis. After months of rumors and speculation, it has also been officially confirmed that Jack Burton himself, Kurt Russell, will be joining as well, quite possibly as Peter Quill’s mystery father.
To get the hype train rolling on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Marvel has released this simple teaser image, which depicts the silhouettes of the team as well as the film’s new logo. The only real item of note we can glean from the teaser image is that Groot is aparently still pint-sized after the events of the first film, so it’s probably a good idea to set aside some money for 1:1 scale tiny Groot action figures now.
