To remind fans that they only have 300 days to go until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is released, filmmaker James Gunn has put out a behind-the-scenes image featuring himself giving directions to Star-Lord actor, Chris Pratt, as well as an uncomfortable-looking Lars P. Winther, the film's First Assistant Director, staring directly into the camera. Come on, Lars, you know better than to do that.
Gunn also used the opportunity to answer questions from his adoring fans, and to once again, tease footage from the film being shown at San Diego Comic-Con later this month.
"Well, you might see something if you're in Hall H on July 23 with me and the Marvel panel," Gunn responded to a question asking when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 footage will come out. "Or if someone secretly films that - which is less likely to happen because of new technology, but I still know sometimes happens - then you'll see it right after. If not then, it will be a short while."
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. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn (Slither). The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt (Jurassic World) as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora; Dave Bautista (Spectre) as Drax; Vin Diesel (Furious 7) as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper (American Sniper) as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker (Jumper) as Yondu; Karen Gillan (The Big Short) as Nebula; and Sean Gunn (Gilmore Girls) as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff (Oldboy), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, Everest), Chris Sullivan (The Knick, The Drop) and Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight, The Thing).
