Most films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe don’t typically have opening credits scenes—they just dive right into the action and save the names for the end.
But most Marvel films don’t have the charm or irreverence that Guardians of the Galaxy packs in.
Who could forget that opening of Star-Lord dancing his way through a decrepit and derelict tomb toward the devastating Orb containing an Infinity Stone to the sounds of “Come And Get Your Love” by Redbone?
@JamesGunn Is there gonna be an opening title sequence as cool as in the first film?— H-Alan (@alancqstark) February 13, 2017
No. It’s going to be cooler. https://t.co/9T3pGsNaJM— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) February 13, 2017
Peter Quill’s Awesome Mixtape Vol. 1 was the backbone to the first film and a vital component to its vibrancy, so its no surprise that the second film would begin with something similar.
We’ve already seen clips of the team taking on a giant monster while Rocket hooks up an amp—could that be the opening scene from the second film? We’ll find out in a few months.
