If you ever want to have a chance of begging your way into the cast of a Marvel movie, here’s what you have to do. Step one: go back in time and start a rock band. Step two: be good enough at the rock band thing to become really famous and have a number of hits that solidify your legacy long after your popularity begins its natural decline. Step three: have a daughter who decides to be an actress and works with the director of that Marvel movie on an earlier project.. Step four: ask for a role that Marvel movie in the press. Step five: wait for that director to respond to your request on social media. Profit!
And this brings us to chapter two of the “Aerosmith Frontman Steven Tyler Really Wants a Role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” a tale that will live on for generations to come.

James Gunn has been tied up with Marvel movies for the past couple of years, but somewhere in there, he found the time to write and produce The Belko Experiment. Greg McLean, the Aussie filmmaker behind the nasty Wolf Creek films, takes the helm, and the result is a simple, entertaining horror-thriller that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Read More »
The hype surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is already very high. Fans are so excited about the sequel that director James Gunn even had to ask people to stop asking him when the trailer was going to arrive. According to his recent barrage of answers to frequently asked questions, it will arrive sometime before Christmas, so just be patient.
Now Chris Pratt is adding to the hype machine in a recent interview where he claims that the movie will be the “biggest spectacle of all time.” And when you have a sequel building that much excitement, it should come as no surprise when a rock star like Steven Tyler says that he wants a role for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, whenever that happens.

If there’s one thing fans are clamoring the most for after San Diego Comic-Con 2016, it’s the footage from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that played exclusively for the Hall H audience at the Marvel Studios panel. However, it seems some fans may be a little too excited to see the first footage from the sequel, because director James Gunn is getting a little annoyed with all the incessant questions about the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer release date.

Getting ahold of the script for a high profile movie that hasn’t hit theaters yet can be pretty difficult, especially when it comes to Marvel Studios movies. All of the scripts are watermarked with the name of the person the script belongs to so that if it ever leaks to the public, Marvel knows who’s to blame. And when it comes to a very special version of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 script, there are only two people to blame if it leaks online.
Director James Gunn posted a photo to Instagram last night revealing this special version of the script that only he and Vin Diesel have. Why Vin Diesel? Because this version of the script pertains to a certain beloved tree character that he voices. Find out what’s so special about this Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Groot script below. Read More »

Any way you slice it, Kurt Russell appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is amazing news. He’s perfectly cast as the long-lost father of Star-Lord, and the fact that said long-lost dad is actually Ego the Living Planet goes beyond our wildest dreams. (Seriously: I don’t think any of us at /Film could’ve dreamed this up in a hundred years.) So who do we have to thank for this casting coup?
Apparently, Star-Lord himself. According to James Gunn, casting Russell was all Chris Pratt‘s idea. Because if you get the rare opportunity to choose your own dad, why not aim high and go for Kurt Russell? Read More »
About a week ago, director James Gunn pointed our attention to a piece of new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 concept art which showed the ragtag team of space criminals turned heroes for hire. Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Raccoon and the infant-sized Groot could be seen jumping through the air facing off against a terrifying, tentacled creature.
Now a new detail about the creature in question hints at the possibility of some kind of interdimensional connection with this fall’s release of Doctor Strange. Find out what James Gunn said about the creature known as an abelisk after the jump and how it might connect to the Sorcerer Supreme after the jump, but beware of some potential spoilers. Read More »
A new piece of concept art from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is arriving in a new issue of Empire Magazine, but writer/director James Gunn has gone ahead and revealed it online. While this new images doesn’t feature any new members of the team (as revealed in the first piece of released concept art, which sits at the top of this article), it does feature the core team doing battle with some kind of slimy alien menace. It’s a fair trade-off.
