Marvel Studios revealed during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 portion of the panel the Logo for the upcoming movie as well as some cast details. If that wasn’t enough, they also revealed plans for an upcoming Disney California attraction.
The new character announcement was revealed to be Ayesha (otherwise known as Kismet or Her) played by Elizabeth Debicki. Yondu gets a “new” red fin and Kurt Russell will play a character that raised Pom Klementieff‘s Mantis. Is this enough to reveal who his character is? No? OK, how about this. Russell will be Ego, The Living Planet. What?
And how does a planet father a child (aka Peter Quill)? Apparently, in the clip Ego lands in a spaceship and introduces himself to the Guardians as Peter’s father. He explains that he’s constructed himself into a human form. *mind blown*
The new cast members will be joining the original cast of Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, and Karen Gillan.
The Disney California Attraction – Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission: Breakout. Will feature the Collector’s warehouse and all his pretty possessions in their tiny prisons. Rocket will enlist the attraction guest for help to free the Guardians from the Collector’s showcase prison. All of this will be performed to a typical Guardians soundtrack. The attraction is set to open in the summer of 2017.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to premiere May 5, 2017.
