A brand new extended teaser for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 dropped during Super Bowl LI Sunday night and in addition to the scenes of Drax being hilarious and Baby Groot being the cutest was a brief shot of Elizabeth Debicki as the film’s villain Ayesha.
In the comics, Ayesha is more often referred to as Paragon or simply “Her” and comes from”The Enclave,” a group that tries to artificially create super beings. Ayesha is closely associated with the character Adam Warlock, who is also an Enclave creation and interestingly, is traditionally the character who possess the Soul Gem, aka the final Infinity Stone that we haven’t actually seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. It’s unclear if Warlock is in Vol. 2 but Ayesha’s presence is a pretty good indication that the Soul Gem will figure into the film’s plot somehow.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
