Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is an upcoming superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team Guardians of the Galaxy, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is the fifteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was officially announced at San Diego Comic-Con International 2014 before the theatrical release of the first film, along with Gunn’s involvement once again, with the title of the film revealed a year later in June 2015.
All of the core cast members from the original Guardians of the Galaxy will return for the sequel, as Gunn confirmed on his Facebook page earlier this year. In addition to Chris Pratt returning as Peter Quill/ Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana will be back as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as Groot, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket.
Various interviews with those involved with the production have offered some hints regarding when the story picks up and the themes of his upcoming film, and they’re quite interesting. Unlike most Marvel Studios sequels, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 won’t use real time to caliber how much time has passed since the last movie, and instead will start approximately two months after the end of the 2014 hit. And while we don’t know much about the plot other than the fact that it will see Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) reunited with his father, we do know that James Gunn’s script will hit on important subjects regarding family, where you come from, and how that affects who you are.
