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 »

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 »
