After director James Gunn teased the first poster for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” Marvel released its first trailer.

The teaser trailer shows snippets of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillen), as well as a really cute interaction between Star-Lord and Drax.

“There are two types of beings in the universe — those who dance, and those who do not,” Drax says in the trailer.

“I get it, yes, I am a dancer. Gamora is not,” responds Star-Lord.

“You need to find a woman who is pathetic — like you,” Drax adds.

Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn and Glenn Close are all also returning for the follow-up to the hit Marvel original. Kurt Russell will also star.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” was a major worldwide success when it premiered in Aug. 2014. The film grossed over $770 million at the box office, with more than $330 million of that coming from the U.S.

Earlier this month, Gunn said that the sequel will have stronger story lines for women because he is tired of female characters just being “the girl.”

“I am sick of stories where there are a bunch of fully realized male characters and one female character, whose primary characteristic is simply being ‘the girl’ or the personality-less object of some man’s affections,” Gunn wrote in a Facebook post.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is set to premiere on May 5.
