The final Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer has arrived and it provides a much better idea of what’s going on in the much-anticipated sequel to 2014’s hit comedic superhero film. The trailer itself is fantastic and offers the same brand of irreverent humor and colorful space battles that made the original Guardians of the Galaxy such a success for Marvel Studios. Director James Gunn loves to put Easter eggs in his films, so it’s a bit shocking that the trailer doesn’t actually have that many noteworthy ones (I can only guess that he’s trying to save the best for the final film, which is totally understandable). Still, there are quite a few little details and references worth pointing out and I’ve broken down the ones that feel like they could be the most significant (or just plain cool)
10. Star-Lord and His Mattel Toy
At the beginning of the trailer, we find the Guardians waiting around for a grotesque, dimension-hopping creature known as the Abelisk to show up, which Star-Lord is seen tracking on some sort of device that looks like some retro children’s toy from the 80s. Well, turns out that’s because it is, as he’s really holding a repurposed Classic Football handheld game made by Mattel Electronics. Nevermind the fact that the galaxy probably has much more advanced trackers readily available, this is just a cool Easter egg that feels right at home in a film like Guardians of the Galaxy.
