It’s here, ladies and gents!

It’s been a few years, but we’re finally nearing the final few months before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters. From what we’ve seen so far, the movie doesn’t look like it’ll disappoint. While it definitely has a real “bigger and badder” look to it, that doesn’t necessarily seem like it’ll be a bad thing.

During the Super Bowl, Marvel released the official spot for the game, and it also sort of drives the point home. In addition, it seems to confirm that Yondu, Nebula, and Mantis will officially be joining the Guardians team. While we knew they’d be in the film, and in instrumental roles, we still weren’t one hundred percent sure their involvement would mean they’d actually join the team as fully-fledged members.

Check out the official spot below!

The official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is as follows:

“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”

What do you think of the kickass new trailer, as well as the seeming confirmation of the expanded cast? Let us know your thoughts down below!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
