This Tuesday Marvel is set to release the new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 during Jimmy Kimmel Live. I believe we'll get our first footage of Kurt Russell's Ego the Living Planet in action in that trailer, but before we do, we have a leaked promotional image that has hit the internet, giving us our first real look at Russell in the role. I included the photo in a tweet I came across, which you can check out below. I'm surprised that Marvel was able to keep Russell's look in the film a secret for as long as they did.
I don't know about you, but Ego looks like the ultimate space cowboy in his human form. He looks like the Wyatt Earp of the Marvel Cinematic Universe! There's no doubt that Russell is going to steal every scene that he's a part of in this movie. Check out his look below and let us know what you think of it!
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.
The James Gunn-directed film stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, and Elizabeth Debicki.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be released in theaters on May 5, 2017.
