Superheroes die all the time in the comics, but they rarely stay dead. "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" contains the first substantial hero death in the studio's 15-film run — and the crime-fighting body count is certain to mount in coming films.
When Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 writer-director James Gunn came into Yahoo Studios in March for a Facebook Live interview, he dropped all sorts of fun nuggets about the franchise. “Are you kidding me?” Zoe Saldana (Gamora) asked at the film’s Los Angeles press day. Karen Gillan (Nebula) was equally as flummoxed.
You knew from the closing moments of 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy that director James Gunn had struck CGI gold with the introduction of Baby Groot.
After three decades of potshots and putdowns stemming from the much-maligned 1986 film, Howard the Duck made a big comeback following his cameo during the end credits of Marvel’s 2015 megahit Guardians of the Galaxy. With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 weeks from opening, the subject of Sir Duck from Duckworld came up with director James Gunn (who wrote and produced the new thriller The Belko Experiment) during a Facebook Live interview with Yahoo Movies, and the filmmaker hilariously echoed the sentiments of comic book fans worldwide: He really loves Howard the Duck the character, and really detests that movie Howard the Duck. “I’m a huge Howard the Duck fan,” Gunn said of the character first introduced by Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik in Marvel Comics’ 1973 Adventure Into Fear No. 19.
Aside from a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in a sizzle reel shown at Comic-Con last summer, Sylvester Stallone’s role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been shrouded in mystery. Directed James Gunn swung by the Yahoo Studios this week for a Facebook Live session to talk about both his new film The Belko Experiment (in theaters now) and the Guardians sequel (out May 5), and he dropped some tantalizing tidbits about Stallone’s top-secret role. “Look for clues and you will find out the character Sylvester Stallone plays.
James Gunn came into Yahoo Studios Thursday for a Facebook Live discussion about The Belko Experiment — the bloody new workplace thriller he wrote and produced — but conversation inevitably turned to that other little property he masterminds, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The big news surrounding the MCU’s outer-space odyssey today revolved around Gunn seemingly confirming a threequel ahead of May’s release of Vol. 2. In simplest terms, his comments should not be viewed as an announcement that there will in fact be a Vol. 3….
In a series of tweets, creative force behind the franchise indicated the entire concept for Baby Groot had come from him, and that it was largely a means of keeping the character fresh, not to sell toys

After the success of James Gunn’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ in 2014, it’s no surprise fans are drooling over next year’s sequel. While speaking to Empire, director James Gunn revealed it was actually Pratt’s idea to cast the legendary Russell in the role of his father/giant face planet, Ego.
With ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ proving to be the surprise hit of 2014, a sequel was never in question. Ravagers leader Yondu (Michael Rooker) is back, probably not best pleased after Star-Lord tricked him by offering up a fake orb, but he’ll either serve as a subplot antagonist or an ally.
Months of speculation over who Kurt Russell is playing in Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2′ has come to an end, after the first footage for James Gunn’s sequel revealed all at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Along with the all-new logo for the movie (as pictured above), we’ve finally had some confirmation on who Kurt Russell plays in the Marvel galaxy and, importantly, who Star-Lord’s (Chris Pratt) father is. During the first early footage of the adventure film, audiences were privy to a number of moments revolving around our resident guardians: Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, Gamora, and Drax, as well as Yondu.
After the amazingly fun adventure that was 2014′s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, Chris Pratt’s given us a sneak peek on the set of the anticipated sequel. In fact, besides giving us a peek at the anticipated James Gunn movie, the video was also about giving fans the chance to win a day on the set with Pratt himself. The prize is courtesy of charity Omaze, whereby if you donate to the cause, you stand a chance of winning all sorts of prizes and spending some time with Mr. Pratt himself.
In fact, the question over whether James Gunn will direct ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 3′, which hasn’t even been confirmed, has already been posed to the filmmaker. James Gunn told a Facebook Q&A he conducted on the social media website, “Right now I really am just concerned with doing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2′. James Gunn’s potent mixture of hilarity and heart was one of the main reasons why ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ was able to connect with an audience and evolve from a cult into a mainstream commodity, so much so that it grossed over $773 million at the box office.
Only last week saw Kurt Russell announced to appear in Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ sequel, and now ‘Sons of Anarchy’ star Tommy Flanagan has joined the ever-growing cast. Heroic Hollywood say the actor will join an already confirmed Russell, as well as other newcomers Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Chris Sullivan. Flanagan is said to be playing the right-hand man of Ravagers leader Yondu Udonta, and adds to the expansive ‘Guardians’ universe that already hosts its established lead Chris Pratt and his team of Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel.
James Gunn, the outspoken director of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ has slammed the Hollywood system following the success of superhero movie 'Deadpool’. The cause of the rant was one particular piece, in the movie bible Deadline, which quoted an anonymous executive.
It’s safe to say that any self respecting Marvel fan is excited for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2′, and we’ll be getting some big casting news this week. According to James Gunn, the director of both the first and upcoming movie, the mystery behind new members of the GotG world will be revealed soon. In a recent Facebook Q and A video (that lasted over 40 minutes), Gunn teased that there would be a new female addition - presumably adding to Zoe Saldana’s Gamora and Karen Gillan’s Nebula, who are returning.
For months everyone’s been speculating over what we will see in Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2′, directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt. During a Twitter Q and A, Gunn was asked about the mystery over who his pops is, as well as which new villain will feature as the film’s antagonists. Another interesting question posed by a fan on Twitter asked if more than one actor had been cast - implying the father and villain could in fact be the same person.
So discovered James Gunn, director of 'Guardians of the Galaxy’, when it emerged he was planning to use the so-named alien race from the comics in the forthcoming sequel, 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’. After such news emerged, Marvel’s jittery legal department got involved, suggesting that maybe Gunn use something else instead. A couple weeks back I told you how the Marvel legal department advised against using Sneeper as an alien species in 'Guardians of the Galaxy’ because the word is 'similar to the word meaning 'clitoris’ in Icelandic’. “So keep an eye out for at least one Sneeper somewhere in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” Excellent news, we think you’ll agree.
Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker James Gunn brought Facebook to tears this morning, sharing an emotional story of how the blockbuster Marvel superhero movie connected with some special kids. Gunn posted a note on his Facebook page to mark the one-year anniversary of the film on Aug. 1.
