UPDATE: James Gunn has clarified his statements on Guardians of the Galaxy 3 and we have updated the post below.
There are few sure things. The Earth is round. The sky is blue. The Pope is Catholic. Marvel Studios always has another sequel up their sleeve. So when Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn says that there will most definitely be a third film in the comic book space opera series, the big news isn’t that another movie is coming. The big news is that Gunn won’t say whether or not he’s going to make it.

In the Marvel comic book universe, Ego the Living Planet is exactly what his name suggests: he is a literal living planet, with a face and everything, who can travel throughout space and get involved in all kinds of shenanigans. The character will make his cinematic debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where he will be played by actor Kurt Russell, a human being who is not a literal living planet with a face and everything who can travel throughout space and get involved in all kinds of shenanigans. And if you’re wondering how that works, director James Gunn is here to explain the nature of Ego’s powers in his upcoming sequel.

Even though all the attention will be on Beauty and the Beast this weekend, those who may not be interested in a live-action adaptation of an animated musical might take solace in the wild violence of The Belko Experiment.
Written by James Gunn and directed by Wolf Creek helmer Greg McLean, the action thriller takes place at a not-for-profit company in Colombia where the employees find themselves suddenly faced with the task of killing each other, or else risk being killed themselves. We’ve seen a red band trailer in all its bloody glory, and now you can see it recreated with the magic of stop-motion animation, LEGO pieces and some red Play-doh.

Your favorite galaxy-saving a-holes are back… or they’re about to be really soon, in any case. Marvel Studios has just dropped the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer, which assembles the whole gang: Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel). In typical fashion, they’re flying by the seats of their pants — but if we know them, they’ll manage to get it together just in time to save the MCU from completely imploding.
Check out the latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer below, which includes our first look at Kurt Russell as Ego. Read More »

The news here isn’t that musician and film director Rob Zombie is now a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – the news here is that musician and film director Rob Zombie is once again a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Even though we’ve seen plenty of images and footage from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we’ve still yet to see an official photo or shot of Kurt Russell as Star-Lord’s father, aka Ego the Living Planet. The only people who have gotten a look at Kurt Russell in the movie were the thousands who were in Hall H for the Marvel Studios presentation at San Diego Comic-Con last summer. Otherwise, all we’ve had are a couple of Funko figures to give us an idea of what he looks like.
Today, we get a slightly better look at Kurt Russell in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, although this new peek at the character also comes in the form of a toy. The difference this time is that it’s one of the more detailed Marvel Legends action figures, so it’s our best look at the character yet. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

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 »
