Guardians of the Galaxy has helped usher us into an era where we’re talking about whether or not songs featured in the previews for the upcoming sequel will actually be in the final movie. If there’s any doubt at all that the first film’s soundtrack (which went on to become one of the bestselling movie soundtracks of all time) was vital to the success of the first film, then strip away those doubts and repent. Director James Gunn‘s inspired needledrops lent the 2014 original a genuine personality that other comic book movies have tried, and failed, to capture.
So welcome to today’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 music update, where Gunn reveals that not every song featured in the trailers for his sequel will actually be in the final movie.

When David Bowie died in January of 2016, director James Gunn expressed his grief and also mentioned that there was once an idea tossed around to have the iconic musician make a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Unfortunately, at the time, Bowie’s health was already keeping him from doing things like that.
The first Guardians of the Galaxy featured the track “Moonage Daydream” from David Bowie, and following Bowie’s death, James Gunn said he was trying to get another song off the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. It appears we may know what that song is thanks to a new Guardians of the Galaxy 2 TV spot, which you can watch below. Read More »

The first Guardians of the Galaxy inspired some grumbling when fans realized that while merchandise featuring Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket, and Groot was plentiful, toys of Gamora seemed to be few and far in between. #WheresGamora started trending, as audiences called out the studio for giving its female hero the short shrift. Then Marvel seemingly repeated the exact same blunder a year later with Avengers: Age of Ultron, which gave rise to the #WheresBlackWidow hashtag. Even the Hulk got involved with that one.
So, as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 looms on the horizon, has Marvel learned its lesson? During an on-set interview, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige addressed the #WheresBlackWidow and #WheresGamora campaigns, and discussed the efforts the company is making fto ensure its female characters are better represented in the merchandise going forward.
