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 2 Soundtrack

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 »

Why Sean Gunn Plays Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy

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.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been in the can for quite some time now. Therefore, it comes as a bit of a surprise that with just about a month and a half to go before the movie hits theaters that we’re hearing about a new cast member.
