Writer/director James Gunn knows that fans are eager for any tidbits of information about “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.” This sequel to the 2014 blockbuster is due out May 5 and the final trailer was just released. It looks like another wild ride and Gunn got on Facebook Live on Tuesday (Feb. 28) to talk about who is back from the first film and who is new to this one.
He addressed the rumor that Adam Warlock and Darkhawk will now number among the Guardians because of their inclusion in the Marvel Legends line of action figures. “All you need to do is look at the packaging, you guys. On the packaging cover, it says ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ on the figures that are from the movie and it doesn’t say Vol. 2 on the other figures.”
So, with that in mind, we know that Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista and Michael Rooker will return and that the cast also includes Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell. This follow-up is set a few months after the first, with the Guardians on hand to help Peter Quill find out where he comes from and who he really is.
