Guardians of the Galaxy 2

There aren’t a lot of filmmakers working today as active on social media as Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. He’s been currently in the throes of prepping the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 shoot and has taken to Twittewr and Facebook to tease some information about the new movie.

He regularly conducts Q&A with fans through his social media accounts and once again answered some questions over the weekend, revealing some interesting details in the process, write Squareeyed.

Gunn revealed that he has cast both Star-Lord’s father (rumoured to be Kurt Russell) and the main villain (we don’t know if it’s the main villain but this obscure guy might make an appearance). He also revealed that he didn’t have any budgetary restriction from Marvel and said he would be open to directing more films for Marvel Studios.

Now with the cast finalised by Gunn and the producers, we can expect an official announcement soon as to who is playing the main villain and Star-Lord’s father. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 arrives on May 5th, 2017.

Below are some of Gunn’s tweets and a behind-the-scenes photo he shared.

Getting in on the fun, Chris Pratt added this to Instagram… the fabled Awesome Mix: Vol 2

Feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!!! I can’t even tell you how excited I am. Ok I’ll try. I’m ecstatic. I’m bursting with joy. I’m overwhelmed by feelings of enthusiasm, joy, gratitude, conviviality, camaraderie, elation, exhilaration. I just used an online thesaurus for these words. I suggest trying that. That way instead of saying “I’m very excited” say, “I’m exhilarated.” Never too late to learn words. The pen is mightier than the sword. I never got that. I could whoop someone’s ass if I had a sword and they only had a pen. WAIT!!! Now I get it. Cause you could use a giant pen with a dagger on one end? And a gun on the other end? No? Whatever. Point is… Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Is going to be the greatest spectacle film of all time. This is not…. bear with me… using online thesaurus….. Hyperbole! This is not hyperbole!
