Following the success of Captain America: Civil War to begin phase three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans now look ahead to the next few movies with eager anticipation. Among these upcoming movies includes one of the more popular sequels in the MCU, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which will serve as the third installment of phase three. After the overall highly successful reception of the first Guardians of the Galaxy which introduced the beloved Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, fans have set very high standards for the next film.
According to many interviews and tweets, the film’s director James Gunn has voiced his praise for the sequel, saying several times it as just as good, if not better, than the first. While Gunn frequently tweets about the film, his latest tweet informs fans his movie is finished filming.
With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set to premiere in less than a year, many are expecting the first bit of footage for the film, which can be expected to be shown at the San Diego Comic Con. The SDCC, which begins on July 21st, will feature the cast and crew of the film, including Chris Pratt, James Gunn, and other members of the cast. Hopefully it will be at SDCC where the cast will not only reveal more pieces of information regarding the plot of the film, including what new characters actors like Kurt Russell will be introduced, and a teaser trailer for the movie.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to premiere in theaters May 5th, 2017.
