With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set to kick off another flurry of superhero blockbusters (and possibly be the biggest/best yet if the early word is to be believed,) the films lead dancer/80’s music enthusiast, Chris Pratt, had a few things to say about what the other guys (Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Universe) are doing, and (spoiler) it kinda sounds like he might not be as critical as die hard fans might want him to be.
Yes, while the fan community seems to continue to divide, Star-Lord himself joins his GotG director, James Gunn (and arguably the majority of the movie going public,) in enjoying BOTH DC and Marvel. Pratt gave praise to the DCEU films while speaking with io9, granted he did have one very valid critique about one film in particular. (more…)
Some eagle eyed fans thought they’d spotted Adam Warlock‘s famous cocoon in the Collector’s lair in Guardians of the Galaxy, and well, they were right. Director James Gunn later confirmed the cocoon to be Warlock’s. Gunn, however, had also said it wasn’t put there as a conscious decision to tease a future appearance – he just used it to dress the set and have it serve as one of those random easter eggs. While there were no initial plans to include Adam Warlock into the MCU, the character did eventually become part of Gunn’s plans.
It’s come out, that while scripting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Warlock was a big part of the story. (more…)
That’s a rhetorical headline obviously, since of course you do.
When we last saw Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) he had finally unwrapped the gift his dying mother had given him to discover that it was a cassette tape, but not just any ordinary one. This was Awesome Mix Vol. 2, the follow up to what is undoubtedly them most durable string of magnetic media in the known galaxy since he had been listening to it on repeat for past 26 years or so, Awesome Mix Vol. 1.
So, what music does this mythical mix tape contain? Guardians of the Galaxy director, James Gunn, has finally unveiled the track listing for the the films upcoming sequel and it is absolutely perfect. (more…)
While James Gunn didn’t pull a Picard yell, he did set the record straight on how many post credit scenes there are in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Check out his tweet below correcting a Screen Rant Tweet saying there are only four. Wait… only four, did we really just say that? It’s like the end of The Lord of the Rings series where there are four or five endings that keep leading to another ending. Everytime you got ready to get up it kept going and going. (more…)
The eagerly anticipated second instalment in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie series comes out in just over a week. The first movie exploded onto screens in 2014 and gave more mature comic fans a movie that was definitely targeted at them long before Deadpool, with its occasionally crude humour, evident self-awareness and loveably unlikeable protagonists. Fans of all ages have been waiting for the sequel since it came out. The movie’s popularity meant that a lot of people looked forward to not just one further movie, but perhaps even a full series that explored this new galaxy with these badass heroes in more depth. (more…)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is just over a month away. James Gunn in an interview earlier this month talked about the future of the franchise, simply stating that, yeah, Marvel will most likely want to do another one of these. This is one of their most successful franchises. Well, this news got people stoked, and got them speculating about where the franchise could go and when it will be released. Whoa, wait a minute…James Gunn saw something off here. Why are they talking about the third movie when the second one hasn’t even come out yet??? (more…)
Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the most successful Marvel films ever made, besides the Avengers films themselves, so it comes as no surprise that a sequel was immediately put into the works. Guardians was a surprise to many, it was a lesser known property that kind of came out of left field and took everyone by surprise by how good it was. A lot of how good it was is due to the film’s director, James Gunn, who is also helming the upcoming sequel. It’s just been confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is officially happening, which is good news for fans of the franchise. But Gunn has spoken out and said he might not be the one directing the film. (more…)
Not only does he have a kick-ass name, Rob Zombie (The Matrix, House of 1000 Corpses, and Daredevil) is going to make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! This isn’t Zombie’s first time playing a cameo in one of James Gunn’s (Super, Dawn of the Dead, and Scooby-Doo) movies… or even his first time in a Guardians of the Galaxy flick so his return doesn’t come as much of a shock; more like a very welcome confirmation that the legendary musician and director is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and knowing him, he is going to do it with style. Not only does this news bring us those Happy Happy Joy Joy feelings, we also get to see the new movie theater standee released by the studio.
Doctor Strange DVD/BluRay hits stores February 28th and some of the extras are making their way onto the Internet. Just the other day there were some screen shots from some of the upcoming Phase 3 movies including, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Guardians Of The Galaxy 2. The video has some great first looks along with commentary from Joss Whedon, Kevin Feige, James Gunn, and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi. If you’ve been wanting more on Thanos, this is the video for you.
When there’s a big movie to look forward to, some people like to go into it without any prejudgements and spoilers. An impossible task really, when there is a cavalcade of trailers, TV spots, and online sites practically writing about it daily. Such as the case with Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which is ranked as one of the most buzzed about movies of 2017, right along side Star Wars: The Last Jedi. A lot of fans are trying to go into that fresh but finding it hard when Marvel is dangling Baby, tons of out of this world action, and rockin’ music seemingly every other week. Take for example this new TV spot, featuring David Bowie’s Suffragette City. Goddamn if temptation doesn’t get the better of you. (more…)
