Besides some returning core characters, there’s really no saying who’ll appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. The film will have nearly a decade of MCU stories to draw from, not to mention several decades of comic book history.
But if you’d like to try and narrow down the possibilities, here are two more names (or more accurately, a name and a race) that we can cross off the list. Neither Kang the Conqueror nor the Shi’ar Empire will appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, as confirmed by director James Gunn.

Gunn reveals Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will place added emphasis on Star-Lord’s foster father Yondu, as well as warring sisters Gamora and Nebula.
