Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy. It is the fifteenth film installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and also the third installment to Phase Three. It is set to be released May 5, 2017. It is, arguably, the most anticipated films slated in MCU pipeline. And why not, the first one was a perfect comic book movie! It truly was one of the most unique and delightful films Marvel has created to date. Featuring memorable and enjoyable characters, filled with all the required thrills and spills, and was a almost nonstop barrage of humor and fun. It was like eating a big mac and a large fry at 2am after a night of drunken debauchery, it was that good that good. So… a sequel? Yes, please!

While the May 5th 2017 release date feels oh so far away, there is plenty GOTG news and happenings to keep fans abuzz. We’ve gathered some recent commentary from director James Gunn. An audition tape featuring Christ Pratt and Bautista. Karen Gillan and Zoe Saldana feeling blue + green…. and MORE!!! (more…)


Wrestler rumors always seem to circle around comic book movies. Who can forget the John Cena as Captain America speculation? Now wrestling fans can be happy again cause another one has made it. Dave Bautista is set to join James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy project as Drax the Destroyer alongside Chris Pratt.

A highly physical role that had drawn the interest from plenty of tall drinks of water like Jason Mamoa and the Old Spice guy, Bautista seems perfect to play a man dedicated to Thanos’ demise.

Despite his time in the ring or a cage or something, Bautista actually has experience acting. He played Argomael in the third Scorpion King film and some guy in The Man with the Iron First with RZA, the rapper turned actor and director. Bautista can be seen next alongside Vin Diesel in the next Riddick movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy comes out on August 14, 2014.
