  • 15th July - Concept Art
    In this concept art for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, you can see all your favorites: Drax, Groot, Yondu, Star-Lord, Rocket, Nebula, and Gamora. But wait! Who’s that alien lady with the antennae?

    The answer is a brand-new character named Mantis, an acquaintance of the Guardians played by actress Pom Klementieff (Spike Lee’s Oldboy). “She has never really experienced social interaction,” says executive producer Jonathan Schwartz. “Everything she learns about dealing with people, she learns from the Guardians of the Galaxy, which is a very weird group to learn your social intricacies from.”

    Mantis may not be the only new character, according to Schwartz, who says audiences will be treated to a very different Groot from the stoic man-tree of the original 2014 film. “He doesn’t have the wisdom and experience of that Groot,” Schwartz says. “He’s a younger Groot and a more rambunctious Groot. The question is, is he the same Groot, just smaller? Or is he a different Groot that’s sprung up from the seed of the first Groot?”

  • 17th June 2016 - Several Key Cast Members Have Wrapped
    Over the past few days, James Gunn has also announced that stars such as Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Glenn Close (Nova Prime) and Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer) have wrapped on the sequel. He also added that Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Michael Rooker (Yondu) and Sean Gunn (Kraglin) are still shooting. We'll be sure to keep you posted when principal photography fully wraps on Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

  • 25th April 2016 - Nathan Fillion To Cameo As Wonder Man
    Fan favorite Firefly star Nathan Fillion is Simon Williams, a.k.a. Wonder Man, in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

    In the Marvel Comics Universe, Simon Williams is a former members of the Masters of Evil, and brother of villain the Grim Reaper, who reformed and joined the Avengers. Williams eventually retired from the Avengers to pursue an acting career. He was later dragged back into the Avengers’ active roster, despite becoming a pacifist, as a member of the Avengers Unity Division. He paid the ultimate price while defending the Earth from the Apocalypse Twins.

    Photos surfaced online (via Jonathan Hunter) recently that show Fillion’s face on several mock movie posters surrounding a theater in Cartersville, Ga. The theater’s marquee reveals the theater is hosting a Simon Williams movie festival. The posters range in tone from romantic comedy Oh, Rebecca, to a Conan-esque poster for a movie about Conan-esque Marvel Comics character Arkon, and a Steve Jobs style poster for a biopic about Tony Stark, all starring Williams.

  • 27th February 2016 - Tommy Flanagan Joins Cast
    Tommy Flanagan has joined the cast of Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” sources confirmed to Variety.

    Heroic Hollywood first reported the news, saying Flanagan will play one of the Ravagers who have a bounty out on Rocket Raccoon, which causes conflict within the group.

    Principal photography began on the film at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta on Wednesday.

  • 17th February 2016 - Production Begins - Press Release

    Marvel Studios has begun principal photography at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, on Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” which is slated to hit U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017. The production will shoot at Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios.

    “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is written and directed by James Gunn (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Slither”). The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt (“Jurassic World,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Star Trek Into Darkness”) as Gamora; Dave Bautista (“Spectre,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) as Drax; Vin Diesel (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Furious 7”) as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper (“Joy,” “American Sniper”) as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Jumper”) as Yondu; Karen Gillan (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “The Big Short”) as Nebula; and Sean Gunn (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Gilmore Girls”) as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff (“Oldboy”), Elizabeth Debicki (“The Great Gatsby,” “Everest”), Chris Sullivan (“The Knick,” “The Drop”) and Kurt Russell (“The Hateful Eight,” “Furious 7”).

    Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.

    “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is produced by Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Nik Korda and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

    Director James Gunn’s creative team also includes director of photography Henry Braham (“The Legend of Tarzan,” “The Golden Compass”); production designer Scott Chambliss (“Star Trek,” “Tomorrowland”); editors Fred Raskin (“The Hateful Eight,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) and Craig Wood (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End”); three time Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky (“Captain America: Civil War,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”); Oscar®-nominated visual effects supervisor Chris Townsend (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”); stunt coordinator Tommy Harper (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” ); co-producer / first assistant director Lars Winther (“Captain America: Civil War,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”); and six-time Oscar® nominee, special effects supervisor Dan Sudick (“Captain America: Civil War,” “The Avengers”).

    The original “Guardians of the Galaxy” was a hit with critics and audiences alike, earning over $770 million at the worldwide box-office, and holds the record as the most successful debut film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In addition, the film’s soundtrack went platinum and was nominated for a Grammy®.

    Based on the Marvel comic characters first published in 1969, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ” continues the lineage of epic big-screen adventures chronicled in “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Ant-Man,” and the upcoming release schedule, which includes “Captain America: Civil War” on May 6, 2016; “Doctor Strange,” November 4, 2016; “Spider-Man,” July 7, 2017; and “Thor: Ragnarok” on November 3, 2017.

    Marvel Studios continued its unprecedented success in 2015 with the release of “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” At the time of release, the film recorded the second biggest opening weekend of all time with a $191.3 million box office. It has also been the #1 release in every country where it has opened and has grossed over $1.4 billion in global box office. The studio also successfully launched another franchise with “Ant-Man,” starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly. The film opened #1 at the box office on July 17 and went on to gross more than $519 million at the worldwide box office. The film propelled the Marvel brands’ #1 domestic box-office opening streak to a record-breaking 12 consecutive films.

  • 30th December 2015 - Thanos Not Expected to Appear
    We don't know when we'll see the Marvel Cinematic Universe's big bad Thanos next but it won't come in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

    Marvel Studios head, Kevin Feige, advised, "I wouldn't look too hard in [Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2] for Thanos." We were going to, seeing as Thanos made his first non-post-credits scene appearance in the first Guardians.

    Sure, we'll have to wait, but it sounds like it will be worth it. Fans have criticized Thanos for sitting around in his floating throne somewhere in the galaxy without doing anything himself, but Feige says that won't be the case next time. Remember, he grabbed himself an Infinity Gauntlet by the time Avengers: Age of Ultron's credits were through. "The next time we see Thanos he will not be messing around. It will be, 'Oh, that's why they've been teasing this villain for five years,'" Feige explained while speaking to Empire magazine.

  • 16th December 2015 - Kurt Russell Eyed to Play Chris Pratt’s Dad
    As “The Hateful Eight” prepares to storm theaters, its star Kurt Russell has emerged as James Gunn‘s choice to play Chris Pratt‘s father in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” multiple individuals familiar with the film’s casting process have told TheWrap.

    Marvel has not officially offered Russell the coveted part yet, nor has Russell read the script, but meetings are expected to take place soon.

    Representatives for Marvel and Russell declined to comment.

  • 29th October 2015 - Pom Klementieff Cast in a Mystery Role
    Marvel conducted a wide search for its mystery part, which called for an Asian actress, doing several rounds of chemistry reads.

    Relative unknown Pom Klementieff has nabbed one of the new key roles in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

    The role is a big break for Klementieff, who has mostly worked in France. She did, however, appear in Spike Lee’s recent remake of Japanese thriller Oldboy in a role that demanded physicality and martial arts. Oldboy was her entrĂ©e into American and English-language movies.

  • 26th August 2015 - Vin Diesel Returning
    Answering fan questions on Facebook, James Gunn confirmed that Vin Diesel will be back for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as everyone’s favorite space tree.

    It’s not exactly clear what Groot will look like in Vol. 2, as when we last saw the enormous humanoid tree, he was reduced to a tiny (dancing) sprout. Diesel recorded countless versions of Groot’s signature phrase (“I am Groot”) for the original, even saying his lines in French, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portugese, and Mandarin.

Recent Movie Roundups


  1. I didn't watch the first part, was it good?

  2. It was great, and funny. Watch it!

  3. I consider it my favorite MCU movie yet, so yeah it's definitely good LOL

  4. Christopher DeBono3 June 2015 at 13:50

    In the top 3 for the Marvel movies imo.
    A must watch.

  5. I knew there wouldn't be any Hulk because James Gunn has denied that for ages but I am a little disappointed. The Hulk sent into space at the end of AOU rumor from last year got my hopes up that I wouldn't have to wait until the next Avengers to see Bruce again but yet again I have to wait years until I see the character.

  6. Really that good? I don't see the appeal, does it feature a good storyline? From the trailers it seemed more like they were just blazing around.

  7. Interetsing. Besides the Avengers and Captain America I don't watch Marvel movies and this really didn't appeal to me. I heard good things and the numbers were really good but somehow no appeal.

  8. Christopher DeBono3 June 2015 at 14:17

    Yeah it's wacky and pure fun.

    When my friends and I saw it at the cinema's we all got Firefly vibes. So if you enjoy things like Firefly and Star Trek then you'll enjoy it.

  9. I've never watched Firefly, wasn't on my radar. Star Trek was a bit to serious for mini me, but I watched a couple of eps and it's a fine show.
    Will check the movie out, nothing to lose and IF I don't like it, U and me will talk ;-)

  10. Christopher DeBono3 June 2015 at 14:28

    Haha ;D

  11. Wasn't Hulk rumored to appear in Civil War?

  12. Yeah though I really doubt it will happen simply because they keep denying me more Bruce!

  13. Whatever man, I'm going to keep hoping Captain Marvel is in it until the movie comes out.

  14. Lol. Marvel is really working against U.
    But looking at it adding Bruce to the bunch would almost make it an Avengers movie.

  15. Wasn't Guardians of the galaxy supposed to be just one movie?

  16. It just premiered on Starz. Great fun.

  17. 1 and a movie.

  18. I will maybe check it out during the summer or the winter mid-season break.

  19. You should. It's widely considered Whedon's opus.

  20. Savannah Hughes3 June 2015 at 16:53

    They announced Guardians 2, before the first even came out.

  21. Oh, thanks, my bad. :-)

  22. Because FOX basically f*cked the shoe out of the gate. Aired the second episode first, terrible time slot, etc. it never had a shot. And it was a genre show on a early 2000s network.

  23. The idea of Bruce meeting FitzSimmons fills me with joy!

  24. They so are! I mean Civil War has all the current Avengers members in it apart from Thor (who has his own stuff to deal with in his own movie) and Bruce..

  25. I mean it's understandable as the topic concerns all the heroes and their identity. But Bruce is a major part of why CW is happening.
    I loved the IM vs Hulk in Ultron. Such an impressive fight.

  26. Seriously, it would be so fun if they geeked out over stuff together. And if Skye had some residual issues with controlling her "gift", a few lessons from someone who knows all about destructive powers and how to harness them wouldn't hurt.

  27. I watched the movie this morning. It is a good one, I laughed, it was entertaining and had a solid story throughout.
    I'm not familiar with the characters previous to watching the movie so it was entertaining getting to know them.

  28. Christopher DeBono4 June 2015 at 16:52

    Most of the characters were very different from the comic so effectively it was like a rebirth for them all. They were all redefined so not only film fans but comic fans go to get to know these characters from the base up.

    They have an animated series in development now which continues on from the movie. It's not set in the cinematic universe but it uses the movie as a launching point.

  29. That is a smart move. The characters are quite likeable and the comedic writing in the movie was spot on. I loved when Rocket asked for the machanic leg and that eye even though he didn't need them.

    Don't really know what to think about the movie being part of the MU would probably prefer if they had their own story but I assume all the stories will collide very soon.

  30. Christopher DeBono4 June 2015 at 17:30

    Apparently it was planned as a trilogy of movies which will intersect at some point (probably Infinity War). My guess is during GOTG 2 Thanos will come for the Infinity Stones and he'll get them. Then he'll go to Earth, causing the GOTG to follow him.

  31. Good guess. It'll most likely be something like that. Will be nice to see Peter reunite with his family at one point.

  32. Kiiiiiiiiinda bummed over the "No Hulk..."

  33. Can't wait to hear Awesome Vol. 2, Guardians of the Galaxy has the BEST soundtrack EVER!!!!!!

  34. Ha! Quentin is that you?

  35. LOVE this title. It fits so well!

  36. Well I was expecting the soundtrack to have hat title... But ok....
