Put some coffee on, Marvelites: A big honkin’ new trailer for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vo. 2” has its world premiere tonight (Tuesday, Feb. 28) on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Unless someone announces at the last minute that it was supposed to be on Jimmy Fallon‘s show. This week, anything could happen.

Director James Gunn promoted the news with a soup-centric trailer tease:

What a perfect promo for Fat Tuesday. In the Facebook comments, Gunn defended the idea of teasing out a trailer with a separate video:

“It’s not a trailer of a trailer. It’s unique footage in neither the movie or the trailer announcing the trailer.”

So far, Gunn has posted the following “Guardians 2” videos on his own YouTube channel: a “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Sneak Peek,” a “Teaser,” the “Super Bowl Spot,” and this “Soup Trailer Announcement.” But the trailer that is released tonight might be the first thing he actually calls an official “trailer.” It’s all semantics from here but, hey, it’s his movie.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” starts at 11:35 p.m., but you can keep an eye on the show’s YouTube channel for the trailer.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” will be released May 5.
