Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 junket

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the press junket for Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in West Hollywood. Peter Sciretta and I will be publishing individual interviews with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, writer/director James Gunn, and actors Chris Pratt and Kurt Russell here on the site in the days leading up to the film’s release next week. In the meantime, I collected ten pieces of info we gleaned at the junket’s two press conferences, which featured key members of the creative team and nearly every major member of the movie’s cast.

In addition to the folks mentioned above, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillain, Sean Gunn, and Sylvester Stallone were all in attendance. Read on to discover what we learned from the spirited group interviews.

Guardians of the Galaxy Double Feature

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.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clip

In case it wasn’t clear in the first Guardians of the Galaxy, the teaser trailer for this summer’s sequel affirmed that Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) has some romantic feelings for Gamora (Zoe Saldana). The new character Mantis (Pom Klementieff) revealed as much by way of her psychic empathy, allowing her to feel the emotions of others just by touching them. Now it looks like the romance continues to blossom ever-so-slightly as Star-Lord and Gamora share a quick dance to a tune by Sam Cooke.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clip

This past weekend, Nickelodeon had their annual Kids’ Choice Awards, which meant it was a prime time for studios to advertise their latest blockbusters to the coveted younger demographic. The new footage unfurled included the newest trailer for Wonder Woman (which you can watch right here), as well as the first clip from Transformers: The Last Knight. But Marvel Studios also brought a treat for all of the kids who tuned in.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 debuted another clip featuring everyone’s favorite ragtag team of space criminals, and this time there’s a bit of a disagreement between Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon regarding who is the best pilot in the universe. The argument escalates to the point of one particularly gross threat that brings Drax the Destroyer into the fray.

So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.
