Down in Atlanta, Georgia, director James Gunn has officially begun production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Not too long ago we featured some pictures that the filmmaker posted to his Instagram and Facebook accounts, and now Gunn has taken to social media again with a post from the set of the sequel, showing off a new production title logo. It’s not drastically different than the one we’ve seen before, but we’re just excited that filming is finally beginning. Check out the new Guardians of the Galaxy 2 logo after the jump. Read More »

This morning we woke up to the sad news that legendary musician and the definition of cool, David Bowie, had passed away after a battle with the dirty bastard that is cancer. All over social media, fans are lamenting his passing, and James Gunn did the same by offering up another reason, in addition to countless others, to be bummed that Bowie is no longer with us.
Following learning the tragic news, Gunn revealed that he and Marvel’s Kevin Feige were trying to lock down David Bowie to cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And despite his illness at the time, there was apparently hope that it would actually work out. Gunn also offers up his own touching tribute to a man who not only had a huge impact on rock, but also sci-fi and fantasy. Read More »
Ever since Thanos was revealed in the mid-credits scene for The Avengers, fans have been waiting to see just what kind of havoc the comic book villain was going to wreak in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The character finally appeared again in Guardians of the Galaxy, voiced by Josh Brolin, but he pretty much just did a lot of sitting and threatening while everyone else did his work for him. Plus, he hasn’t gotten ahold of any of the Infinity Stones. He even lost the one he already had in his possession, giving it away to Loki.
But as the credits scene for The Avengers: Age of Ultron teased, we’re on the verge of Thanos taking matters into his own hands now. However, according to Kevin Feige, that doesn’t mean we’re going to see the Mad Titan pop up in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Read More »
Not long ago, a big rumor about the identity of Star-Lord’s father in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was circling online, prompting James Gunn to vehemently debunk it and lament spoiler culture in general. But a little while after that, a far less spoilerly detail about the same character surfaced with word that Kurt Russell was in the running to play the mysterious character.
Now the actor himself has confirmed that he’s in the running for the role. However, before he seriously considers it, he needs to sit down and watch the first one, because he hasn’t watched it yet, and knows absolutely nothing about it. Find out more below! Read More »

What are we to make of Vin Diesel? He’s the “tough guy” star of more than one action movie, but he’s a big, silly goofball on social media. He has a reputation for being a little difficult on set, but he spends all of his time between movies being nothing but gracious toward his collaborators. He’s become an icon for energy drink-guzzling bros and Dungeons & Dragons-playing geeks. He’s played tattooed, gravel-voiced spies and adorable talking tree aliens.
And it’s that adorable talking tree alien that brings us here today. The smooth-headed enigma that is Mr. Diesel took to Facebook and shared a live video with his fans, during which he chatted about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, praised James Gunn‘s script for the upcoming sequel, and revealed that the new movie will once again feature more dancing than your average superhero tale.
Hit the jump for Diesel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2 story comments (as well a reminder of Diesel’s wacky dancing history).

Last night I attended an event where Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were in attendance answering questions about Avengers: Age of Ultron and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can read everything they said about plotting the Infinity Stones in the first two and upcoming phase three of the MCU, and where they are headed in The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 in our other post. In this post you can find all the interesting answers that didn’t fit thematically in the other post:
- How does it feel to be able to include Spider-Man in the MCU?
- How was Spider-Man inserted into the plan they already had leading towards The Avengers: Infinity War?
- Does Marvel have plans for Fantastic Four and X-Men in the chance they get the rights back?
- Will The Marvel television characters or storylines ever appear in the Marvel movies? Would characters be recast?
- Why didn’t Captain Marvel and other Marvel character have a cameo at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron?
- When will Guardians of the Galaxy cross over with the earth bound Marvel heroes?
- When will we get more casting announcements for Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2?
