Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Villains And Star-Lord's Father Have Been Cast


During a Twitter Q&A with fans yesterday, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 writer/director James Gunn confirmed that, yes, both the film's villain and Star-Lord's father have been cast for the sequel.

One fan's question as to whether it took more than one actor to cast those two roles wasn't answered.

The notion that the role or roles have been filled isn't all that surprising when you consider that James Gunn has been teasing table reads and early rehearsals with members of the cast on social media this week.

Some other highlights of his tweet-session:


James Gunn (Slither, Super), co-writer and director of 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, will return to write and direct the sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It is scheduled to hit theaters on May 5, 2017. The cast of the first film -- minus Benicio del Toro and Lee Pace -- will return for the film, which will also introduce Pom Klementieff in an as-yet-unconfirmed role.
