Empire has released an exclusive new piece of concept art for the eagerly-awaited Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The image gives us a sneak peek as to what monster the galactic heroes of James Gunn‘s sequel will be facing.
We see Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista) and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) in combat with what appears to be a furry monster with tentacles and multiple rows of sharp teeth.
Oh, and there’s baby Groot (Vin Diesel) doing his own thing. So far, the beast is unnamed, but director/writer James Gunn revealed on social media that it’s an Abilisk. The creature definitely won’t be the only threat that the group has to face.
At least now we have one more baddie to look forward to before the film’s release May 5, 2017. ~Natalia Makarski
