It won’t be too much longer (November, to be exact) before we see the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but to help tide you over, James Gunn has debuted some new concept art — okay, concept art isn’t a trailer, but this particular image does offer a sneak peek at a particularly ferocious new alien villain battling the core Guardians crew, including a ridiculously adorable Baby Groot.
This week, details emerged that actress Zendaya would be playing an updated version of Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. While many people greeted this news with good cheer, a very vocal minority of people had some pretty nasty things to say about the changes made to their beloved character. Yesterday, James Gunn, the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, took to Facebook to share his nuanced thoughts regarding the controversy.
If any Marvel movie director had a take on long-awaited crossovers, it’d be Guardians of the Galaxy boss James Gunn. The Vol. 2 director is only now preparing to share his interstellar heroes with The Avengers, but even Gunn doubts we’ll see the other Earth-based TV heroes taking part in the great Infinity War.
We’ve known for quite some time that Thanos won’t be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which will instead focus on Star-Lord’s dad (Kurt Russell) and a new set of problems — including Ayesha and some very unhappy Ravagers. But it looks like the big angry purple guy isn’t the only one who (literally) won’t be in the picture, as director James Gunn has confirmed that the sequel doesn’t feature any of those pesky Infinity Stones, either.
In recent years, studios have begun putting their special Comic-Con teasers and sizzle reels online in an effort to combat piracy — although the footage is meant to be a Comic-Con exclusive, they’d rather let the fans at home see it the way it was intended instead of watching a blurry, shaky version that someone recorded on a cell phone. Even still, there are some pieces of footage that don’t make their way online, like the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser. If you’re wondering why you haven’t been able to see it, James Gunn has an answer.
Back in June, James Gunn teased that he and the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' gang would bring “something pretty cool” to Marvel’s San Diego Comic-Con panel. We didn’t get a new trailer, but we did get a logo and some details about a new clip.
San Diego Comic-Con saved the biggest news for last. Marvel’s panel is the last big film panel in Hall H this year, and we’re bound to get some huge news on everything from ‘Doctor Strange’ to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.’
The Guardians are back. And they brought backup. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn has shared an amazing piece of concept art that introduces new team member Mantis.
People wait in line for hours, even days, to get inside Hall H, San Diego Comic-Con’s Mecca of giant panels and exclusive video presentations. Last year, I walked the entire line the night before a big day of events; it stretched almost a mile and a half along the San Diego waterfront.
A couple of weeks back, directors James Gunn and Scott Derrickson hinted that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Doctor Strange will be making an appearance during Marvel’s panel at Comic-Con next month. In a new video from the set of the former, Gunn confirms those plans while officially wrapping production with Chris Pratt on the sequel.
