The new 30-second spot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 aired during the Grammys and features Bowie’s “Suffragette City,” set to plenty of explosions and footage of that giant space squid thing. All of the original Guardians are there — Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) — as well as newcomer Mantis (Pom Klementieff), who unfortunately gets hit by an enormous fireball.
“Oh wow,” Star-Lord says.
“I know,” Drax replies. “That almost hit me.”
Last year, after Bowie’s death, Guardians director James Gunn wrote a long tribute to the late star, talking about Bowie’s influence on both his work and his personal life. He added that he and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had hoped to get the Thin White Duke himself to cameo in Vol. 2, but it never happened.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will hit theaters on May 5. Watch the new teaser above.
