In April 2016, I visited the Atlanta set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While on set, we visited the art room, watched a sizzle reel and talked to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige in depth about the upcoming James Gunn-directed sequel. I am excited to finally present to you our full roundtable interview with Feige, which includes a lot of information on Guardians 2 and the future of the Marvel movie universe.

During our intervidw, Feige explains why Groot hasn’t gotten bigger, what baby Groot will sound like, the events that have happened between the last film and Vol 2, teases what role Kurt Russell‘s character Ego plays in the film, Yondu and The Ravenger’s expanded presence in the sequel, how the film’s bad guys (Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha and Chris Sullivan is Taserface) fit into the plot, how much of the galaxy we will see in Vol 2, will Thanos’ presence be felt, Mantis’s role in this story, how this film will play into Avengers: Infinity War, the involvement of Nova Corps, will this film be as crazy as the first movie, how did the story for Vol 2 come about, how does Quill’s Awesome Mix 2 music play into the sequel, the evolution of Marvel movie villains and addresses the #WheresBlackWidow backlash and how they promise their merchandise will be more inclusive and representative of the movies in the future. All this and more, read our entire Kevin Feige Guardians 2 interview after the jump.

We’ve talked previously about how Nolan’s love for the James Bond franchise has shown up in his films from time to time (For instance, The Dark Knight Rises opening sequence was clearly inspired by 1989’s Licence to Kill). A new video essay presents scenes from director Michael Mann‘s films side by side with sequences from Nolan’s work on The Dark Knight.
