Ever since the Marvel Studios panel happened at Comic-Con this past Saturday, fans have been clamoring to find out when the footage that played for those lucky enough to be in Hall would be online. People who waited in the line the previous night and into the morning were treated to the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, a hilarious mockumentary and behind the scenes sizzle reel from Thor: Ragnarok, a new Doctor Strange trailer (which you can actually watch), and an entire scene and teaser trailer from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
So when can you see this footage? The short answer is that it won’t be online anytime soon, and some of it may never be online in the form that it was shown in Hall H. But director James Gunn wants to make sure you know why the footage is being held back, and he explained as much in a video on Facebook, where he also put up a long post explaining all of the secrets revealed in the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Comic-Con footage and panel. Find out what he had to say below. Read More »
Even though it won’t hit theaters for over a year, we’re a little bit closer to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 because production just wrapped on the sequel after shooting in New Orleans. Director James Gunn recorded a video on Facebook live announcing that Chris Pratt had finished all his shooting as Star-Lord and later in the day officially announced on Twitter that production overall was also complete.
Below you can get just a little peak behind the scenes with a couple photos featuring Chris Pratt and his stuntman who helps make Star-Lord look like a bad ass. Plus, find out just how pumped Chris Pratt is in the video straight from the set as he says farewell to the entire crew.

Last week, just before the weekend, fans were all abuzz online after Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn posted a picture of himself holding Mjolnir, the trusty hammer that is traditionally wielded by Thor. Since the filmmaker is currently busy at work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Marvel fans immediately assumed that Gunn was teasing a cameo from the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth). After all, since Thor comes from another part of the galaxy himself, it would make sense that he might encounter the ragtag team of space criminals turned heroes.
However, after the internet went crazy with speculation, Gunn made sure to clarify that Thor wouldn’t be making a cameo with a quick little post. Have your dreams crushed of seeing Thor in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 after the jump. Read More »
Nathan Fillion and James Gunn are good friends, so fans of the Firefly and Castle star were hoping that the director might give the actor a role in Guardians of the Galaxy. However, it appears that neither Gunn nor Fillion wanted to give him a role that would preclude him from having a more significant part in the Marvel cinematic universe, because he ended up having a more secret cameo as the voice of the blue alien who gets his sinuses cleared out by Groot in the Kyln.
In the case of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 though, it appears as if Fillion may have a more significant role. Or at the very least, it’s a role where we’ll see his face on screen. However, explaining the role of Nathan Fillion in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 dives into some potential spoiler territory so continue at your own risk. Read More »
