Kang the Conqueror

Besides some returning core characters, there’s really no saying who’ll appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. The film will have nearly a decade of MCU stories to draw from, not to mention several decades of comic book history.

But if you’d like to try and narrow down the possibilities, here are two more names (or more accurately, a name and a race) that we can cross off the list. Neither Kang the Conqueror nor the Shi’ar Empire will appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, as confirmed by director James Gunn. Read his Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Kang and Shi’ar comments after the jump.  Read More »

Jason Mewes in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

There’s plenty to enjoy in the surprising Marvel Studios hit Guardians of the Galaxy. Most of the praise for the flick goes to director James Gunn and the primary cast of characters who play the titular ragtag team of misfits. But there’s one actor who deserves some more recognition, and that’s Michael Rooker, who plays the sort-of redneck (or blueneck) Ravager named Yondu.

Rooker is a regular in the films by James Gunn, so much that the two are also very good friends. So it should come as no surprise that if Rooker wants to run something by the filmmaker, he just needs to pick up his cell phone. And that’s exactly what happened as the actor asked the director to put Mallrats co-star Jason Mewes in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Read More »

Avengers Age Of Ultron credits scene

Avengers: Age of Ultron exploded on the movie world this weekend and, after it was over, much of the talk was likely about the credits scene. We won’t spoil it above the jump but, suffice to say, it’s a big tease to what Phase Three has to hold. It does raise more questions than it answers, though, and we asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about it. He clarified one of the biggest questions held within the scene and then offered an interesting tidbit about it too. Read about the Age of Ultron credit scene below, but beware of spoilers.

Nebula

Guardians of the Galaxy felt like a departure for Marvel in some ways, but one of the things it definitely has in common with other MCU films is its lingering daddy issues. It sounds like they’ll only get more intense in the sequel, which director James Gunn says is “about fathers.”

And Star-Lord won’t be the only one dealing with family drama. Gunn reveals Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will place added emphasis on Star-Lord’s foster father Yondu, as well as warring sisters Gamora and Nebula. More about the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 fathers and family themes after the jump.  Read More »
