Marvel had Phase Three mapped out back when they were still deep into Phase Two. So it should come as no surprise that even as they’re preparing to launch Phase Three with next month’s Captain America: Civil War, they’re already making plans for Phase Four. The studio already has three 2020 dates locked in, and while they haven’t said exactly which titles will get them, Kevin Feige’s latest comments suggest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is a pretty good guess.

As we all know, the end of Guardians of the Galaxy is a little bittersweet. Rocket Raccoon’s big, walking tree companion known as Groot (Vin Diesel) sacrifices himself to save his furry little friend and their new pals Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). Thankfully, since this is a comic book movie, he’s not really dead, and we see him on his way back to his big tree self as a little potted plant (who loves to dance).
Audiences were a little surprised by his sacrifice, however, James Gunn recently called attention to a Guardians of the Galaxy deleted scene that didn’t make it to the Blu-Ray or DVD release, because it would have required finished visual effects. But as a gift, the director received a finished frame from the scene that would have given Groot a symbolic last supper, complete with the visual to go with it. See the shot from the deleted scene below. Read More »

James Gunn hasn’t been shy about his love for Marvel and the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. He’s gushed, often, about how much he enjoyed making the first one, and signed on for the sequel before the first film even hit theaters. But even Gunn can’t do this forever. The director recently admitted that he’s “not sure” if he’ll return for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, even as he acknowledged he’s “talked” with Marvel about the possibility. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been quietly filming for some time now, with only the occasional Sylvester Stallone sighting reminding us that the next adventure of Marvel’s motley band of space scoundrels is only a year and change away. But now, we have our first proper and official report straight from the set. Heck, straight from Star-Lord himself. A new video featuring Chris Pratt has arrived online, in which the always-endearing actor takes us on a tour of the film’s set.
But there’s an ulterior motive here: charity. Yep, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the latest major movie to ask fans to open their wallets for a good cause in exchange for swag and, for one lucky winner, a chance to come visit the set of the film.

Just earlier this week, one of our editions of Superhero Bits featured a rumor that Sylvester Stallone may have a role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The actor had been spotted staying at the same hotel that at which the cast and crew of the Marvel Studios sequel has been put up, and he apparently left the hotel in a car usually designated to take Chris Pratt to and from set.
Now some new details confirming Stallone’s involvement have come to light, but there’s conflicting information as to who he’s playing. Find out more about Sylvester Stallone in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 after the jump, but beware of possible spoilers. Read More »
