In late October, Marvel released a 90-second "sneak peek" for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It had a few cool moments, but it was just an appetizer compared to the first official teaser trailer that was posted online earlier today. It's been almost two and a half years since we've seen the Guardians in action, and while there's still five months to go until the sequel actually hits theaters, this new preview made it clear that these heroes will be thrown into an adventure just as thrilling as the one from 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, if not more so.

While (thankfully) light on plot details, the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer was packed with plenty of excitement. Here are the five most amazing moments this trailer showed. Before kicking things off, let's give an honorary shoutout to "Fox on the Run" by Sweet playing through almost 75% of the teaser. Surely that will be one of the songs included on Awesome Mix Vol. 2, right?

Let's get the biggest reveal from the trailer out of the way: Mantis' official MCU introduction. She will be one of the newest Guardians in the movie, joining the team alongside Nebula and Yondu. At the end of the preview, we see Mantis using her ability to sense someone's feelings just by touching them. Unfortunately for Peter Quill, he's her test subject, and the minute she touches him, she realizes he has "sexual love" for Gamora. Drax finds this hilarious and can't resist making Quill more embarrassed for having his deepest darkest secret revealed. Still, never let it be said that Drax isn't an equal opportunist, as he soon asks her to "do him" next. Even though Mantis only appeared for a few seconds, we can't wait to see more of her special talents and social ineptness. Side note, I know they're among her features retained from the comics, but Mantis' antennae and buggy eyes are so cool!
