Next week will bring Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to theaters. The advanced test screening scores were more than promising (they received the highest audience scores of any Marvel Studios film), and the brief reactions from the first press screenings had plenty of positive things to say. Now we have a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 review round-up that gives us a little more insight into what works in James Gunn‘s cosmic comic book sequel and what doesn’t. In general, it sounds like the movie is still wholly entertaining, but it’s not quite as good as the franchise starter that came before it.
Check out the excerpts in our Guardians of the Galaxy 2 review round-up below. Read More »
Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel) make for a great team in Guardians of the Galaxy. They work so well together it’s hard to imagine one without the other. We may see them disband at some point, though, and maybe after Guardians of the Galaxy 3, which Gunn called the other day “the end of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy.”
Below, learn more about a possible change-up for the Guardians of the Galaxy team that’s likely very far off into the future.

We knew the third volume of Guardians of the Galaxy may spell the end for the team as we know it, but it looks like it will wrap up the loose ends before dismantling everything.
James Gunn is planning to make his Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy one complete story. The Guardians will make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War before their third outing as a team, but then that may be the last we see of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy. But don’t worry: though Gunn may be wrapping up his flagship series, this won’t be the last we see of him with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but director James Gunn is already looking ahead to the next volume in his space romp saga.
Gunn recently confirmed that he’ll be returning to direct the third installment of his wildly popular superhero movie, and thus help shepherd in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, and while seeing the next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the biggest draw of the sequel, the film’s soundtrack is also a big deal for fans. We’ve gotten a tease of some of the songs that will be in the movie by way of various trailers and TV spots, but James Gunn has cautioned that not all of those songs will be on the soundtrack or Star-Lord’s Awesome Mix Vol. 2. Now we don’t have to wonder which songs will make the cut any longer.
Marvel has just released the full tracklist for Awesome Mix Vol. 2, and it’s quite the funky assembly of music, with plenty of tracks that are well known and some that are a little more obscure. Check out the full Guardians of the Galaxy 2 soundtrack setlist below. Read More »

Bradley Cooper provides the voice for the brash and reckless Rocket Raccoon in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. However, unlike actors such as Andy Serkis, he doesn’t actually work on set to do any motion capture work to bring the anthropomorphic raccoon to life. Instead, it’s James Gunn‘s brother Sean Gunn (who also plays the Ravager named Kraglin) who provides a point of reference for Rocket Raccoon on screen, appearing in a green screen colored unitard. But why?
James Gunn recently held another one of his informative Facebook Live streaming sessions where he answered fan questions. When one asked if the director would ever use Bradley Cooper on set during production, he explained why he doesn’t do that by default.

When James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy debuted back in 2014, it instantly established itself as one of the most visually stunning films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
