New Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Concept Art Reveals Baby Groot vs. Giant Squid Monster
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has kept its Big Bad villain tightly under wraps, but we may have our first look at a first-act baddie. James Gunn just released new concept art from the highly anticipated sequel, which features the whole gang fighting some kind of scary space squid:



In the above concept art, which will be featured in the next issue of Empire, the entire team of old (so minus Mantis, Nebula, and Yondu) is fighting a monster that looks like a cross between an octopus and the subway worm from Men in Black. Baby Groot is the only one who's apparently not helping, but is obviously still MVP, just because he's so damn adorable.

Since the team isn't complete yet, the scene probably takes place in the beginning of the movie, before the Big Bad is revealed. We already know that Ego the Living Planet isn't the primary antagonist, but rather is Star Lord's father, so the main villain is probably Elizabeth Debicki's character, Ayesha, known as Her or Kismet in the comics, an artificial being engineered to manipulate cosmic energy.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
