Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has teased fresh details about the upcoming sequel.
Responding to fans’ questions during a Facebook Q&A, the filmmaker suggested that viewers should expect to see a lot more of Karen Gillan’s villain Nebula.
“Nebula is an important character [in the film],” he said.
And confirming that the Guardians will be adding to their team, Gunn commented: “I’m not going to give names and I won’t give numbers either, but there will be at least one new character in Guardians of the Galaxy.”
He also teased the possibility of fans being treated to a third Guardians film, saying: “If the second one does well. You guys will have to go and see the second one.
“There’s a lot of other Marvel cosmic properties that I’d be interested in helping usher to the screen. I talk about it a lot but, if I said too much here, Marvel might track me down and shoot me.
“As long as I’m working with Marvel, I’ll probably be working on Guardians and Guardians-related projects.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is planned for April 28, 2017 in the UK and May 5, 2017 in the US.
