The film doesn’t even hit theaters for another 5 months, but if this latest Guardians of the Galaxy rumor is to be believed, Marvel might already be moving ahead with a sequel.
This is just a rumor at this point, but with how highly people are speaking of Marvel’s next big team-up flick, it’s not too big of a leap to think that they’d be prepping for a Guardians of the Galaxy sequel before the movie even releases. James Gunn has taken to calling this the biggest movie Marvel has made yet, and every Marvel movie since The Avengers has been gold, so expecting greatness isn’t much of a longshot.
Apparently, depending on the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, we’ll be seeing a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 as part of Marvel’s Phase 3. There’s no other news about the potential sequel, other than that they’ll be aiming for Marvel’s already announced May 6th, 2016 spot.
Personally, I think this movie looks awesome, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets enough support and attention to warrant a sequel. Big studios seem to be trying out a new trend of working on sequels before even knowing how the original will do, so why not? Let us know what you think of this rumor, and if you think they’re making the right move.
