Over the weekend, Diesel posted a live Facebook video where he teased his thoughts on a few new scripts he had received including James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which included a bonus DC mix tape for the sequel.

Don’t bother trying to go back and make anything out on that flash of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 script page Diesel held up in the video. It’s way to blurry to make out any details. All we really know is that is page 92 because Diesel says it is.
He mentions he had to sign for it and I imagine he’ll have to return it in a certain time frame as well. Not that he’ll have to run to the post office, but that a courier service from Marvel will come to retrieve said script and CD. Diesel goes on to talk about the script and James Gunn’s talents.
I can see why my son is so excited about this. James Gunn is such a great writer. I read this script and I go, ‘You’re a great director, and you’re this good a writer too.’ No wonder Marvel is so excited about what you’re doing. No wonder Marvel can’t wait to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Yeah, it’s one of those page turners, you cannot put the script down.
Diesel goes on to talk about a couple other projects (Kojack, XXX3) and then wraps up the video saying:
I have twenty more pages of this [GOTG2] incredible script. Thank you James Gunn for making an incredible script again. You did it again. The world will be anticipating this.
