DC FanDome finally brought us a first look at James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad. The DC Comics movie continues the adventures of a few characters from 2016’s Suicide Squad, but thanks to the Guardians of the Galaxy director stepping behind the camera, the movie has a completely new style and it seems to have a much more vibrant look that draws from the colorful side of DC Comics. Along with that, there’s a huge new roster of characters, many of them from the more obscure pages of John Ostrander‘s run on the comic book series. Since people probably don’t know a lot about them, here are The Suicide Squad characters explained. Read More »

The Zune may be out of production, but at least it can give us a few laughs from beyond its technological grave. The defunct musical device was resurrected for a scene at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and with no more mix tapes coming from Peter Quill’s mother, it will likely play an important role when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 rolls out, presumably in 2020.
The beginning of the Zune’s reign can be marked with this Guardians of the Galaxy 2 deleted scene, in which Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and Kraglin (Sean Gunn) try to figure out how to work the darn thing.

When the news came that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be arriving on home video this month, director James Gunn teased one wild special feature the likes of which had never been seen on any Marvel Studios movie before. That special feature has now arrived in its entirety online.
James Gunn created a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 music video inspired by the original disco song “Guardians Inferno” by a group called The Sneepers, featuring none other than Star-Lord’s fictional father David Hasselhoff. This is a full fledged retro music video created in the same style as real hit disco songs from the 1970s, and it’s so weird and glorious. Watch it below! Read More »

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.

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.
Find out why Sean Gunn plays Rocket Raccoon on set after the jump. Read More »

While many are looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, before that we’ll get a chance to see another film that director James Gunn worked on as a writer before getting behind the camera of the Marvel Studios sequel.

That’s the dilemma that will be faced by the employees in The Belko Experiment teaser that just debuted. Read More »
