Oh, James Gunn you big dirty tease!
The writer/director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 which is currently filming has just posted the image below and has us all flustered at the notion of Thor appearing on the movie.
That’s Gunn holding Thor’s mighty hammer (steady on), Mjolnir.
Now, we doubt Gunn would spoil something like Thor meeting the Guardians in such a way… but it’s a wonderful thought, isn’t it? Especially given that we now know Thor: Ragnarok may well cover Planey Hulk territory too (here) – this would certainly feel like a logical meeting within the MCU, wouldn’t it?
We know ‘it’s all connected’ so we’ll have to wait another 11 months to find out for sure.
But we are hoping…
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to hit theaters May 5, 2017.
Sadly, Gunn has taken to Facebook to make it clear that no, Thor won’t be appearing: “This is actually a nice little collection of my and the cast’s behind-the-scenes glimpses at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. (And, no, Thor isn’t in Vol. 2 – the props guy just happened to have it around and I decided to take a pic with it. Not sure if I’m able to lift it because I’m worthy or because I’m soulless like an elevator).
“Hope you all have a great weekend.”
