With the premiere of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 now less than a month away, many are excited to see the ragtag group of misfits back for a second outing.
And as a recent behind-the-scenes photo proves, the film's cast has just as much fun on-set as Guardians fans have watching it.
The film's director, James Gunn, shared the following photo on Instagram on Tuesday. It shows some of the Vol. 2 cast members - Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, and Pom Klementieff - goofing off on-set, as well as some perfectly-timed finger guns courtesy of Kurt Russell. Gunn even referenced one of Russell's earlier roles - Escape From New York's Snake Plissken - in the photo's hashtags.
The photo doesn't reveal much about Vol. 2 itself, but it does provide an indication of the dynamic between the film's cast members. Those eagerly anticipating Vol. 2 will just have to keep an eye on Gunn's Instagram - particularly his #GotGPicoftheDay hashtag - to see more sneak peeks of the film.
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos.
