When Will Stallone's Guardians Team Return in a Marvel Movie?

8 May 2017 6:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few days before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 debuted this weekend, it was confirmed at a press conference that the characters introduced towards the end of the sequel, and during one of the post-credits scenes as well, was in fact the "original Guardians" lineup, meaning this was the original team from the Marvel Comics. This team includes Sylvester Stallone's Stakar Ogrod, Ving Rhames as Charlie-27, Michelle Yeoh as Aleta Ogrod, Michael Rosenbaum as Martinex, Miley Cyrus as Mainframe and the CG-animated Krugarr. When asked during a recent interview if these original Guardians will return, or if the post-credit scene was just a fun scene to put together, Kevin Feige revealed it was a bit of both.

The Guardians 2 post-credit scene brought all of these original Guardians back together, as they honored the memory of the late Yondu (Michael Rooker). Given how expansive the Marvel Cinematic Universe is, »

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2: Will That Team Return In The Future?

8 May 2017 3:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

For those of you who had a chance to check out Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this past weekend, we were treated to one incredibly distracting — but ultimately worth it — cameo from Sylvester Stallone. For those who don’t know, in the comics, Yondu was a member of the original Guardians of the Galaxy team, and during his funeral in the second film, we got the Easter egg that his team truly did exist on some level in the past — even if they weren’t called the Guardians of the Galaxy.

In one of the five post-credits sequences of the film, we saw that the funeral brought back the likes of Sylvester Stallone, Michelle Yeoh, and Ving Rhames, among others — who each portray older members of the Guardians of the Galaxy, along with Michael Rooker’s Yondu. »

The big blockbusters of summer 2018

8 May 2017 8:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew May 9, 2017

Mission: Impossible, Avengers, Dwayne Johnson, Jurassic World, Ant-Man and more are lining up to meet you next summer. Oh, and The Statham.

With summer blockbuster season 2017 in full swing, and with Fast & Furious 8 speeding over the $1bn mark already, a bunch of filmmakers are furiously putting together their films for release this time next year (or thereabouts). Here, as things stand, is the state of summer blockbuster season 2018. We’ve veered towards UK release dates on the whole, but as always, things can quickly change.

Also, we’ve not included unnamed films: Universal, for instance, has reserved a slot for one of its classic monster universe movies, but not told anybody what it is yet. As more information pops up, we’ll keep this list up to date…

Summer blockbuster season effectively kicks off in March in 2018, with the Warner Bros-backed big »

5 May 2017 7:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Be warned, if you haven't made it out to your local theater to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 quite yet, there will be Spoilers for the five post-credit scenes that are featured in this superhero sequel. We have already heard details about four of the post-credit scenes, with a fifth scene being withheld from press screenings. But during a new interview, director James Gunn revealed there was even a sixth scene that was going to be put in, but it was ultimately cut. While James Gunn recently told fans to stop worrying about spoilers, if you can't quite kick the spoiler-worrying habit yet, then consider this your Spoiler Warning, and read on at your own risk.

USA Today caught up with director James Gunn, who broke down the five Guardians 2 post-credit scenes, and even revealed the scene that didn't make the final cut, which included the character Gef the Ravager, »

'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' Post-Credits Scenes Explained by Director James Gunn

5 May 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here's a first for a Marvel movie: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has not one, not two, three, or four, but five post-credits scenes. (As well as a fun Easter egg nods to Thor: Ragnarok. Look out for the Jeff Goldblum cameo as the credits roll.)

Some of the sequences are fun bits that don't require much explanation-- like Kraglin (Sean Gunn) inheriting Yondu's whistle-controlled arrow, or Stan Lee insisting that he has more stories to tell the Watchers. Others require a bit more of a breakdown. And though writer-director James Gunn previously claimed that his tags are all "stupid sh*t," that could not be further from the truth. Here, Gunn reveals the post-credits scenes' significance in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Tom Cruise Surprises Fans After Motorcycle Stunt in Mi:6 Set Video

1 May 2017 10:10 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We reported last month that Mission: Impossible 6 started production, with writer-director Christopher McQuarrie sending out the first photo from the set. Since then, we've seen videos with Tom Cruise crashing a motorcycle, and also our first look at Henry Cavill, who joins the franchise as the right hand man of the head of Ethan Hunt's (Tom Cruise) Impossible Mission Force (Imf) unit. Today we have a new video with Tom Cruise in action once again. The actor even has time between takes to greet the dozens of fans who've showed up in Paris to watch him film.

Storm Shadow has put together a five-minute video of Tom Cruise on the Paris set, as he preps what looks to be just a small part of a rather large motorcycle chase scene, shot on the famous Avenue de l'Opera. While it isn't seen who is chasing him in this portion of the shoot, »

Guardians II: Overall Entertaining But Are Things Beginning to Feel More Than a Bit Mechanical?

30 April 2017 8:11 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' with Chris Pratt as Chris Pratt Star-Lord a.k.a. Peter Quill and Drax (voice by Dave Bautista): When 'the pressure to be good isn't as intense as the pressure to not be bad.' 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2': Entertaining pop culture references help to alleviate James Gunn's 'weight of obligation' Pull up a chair, gather your friends, and warm up those texting thumbs: the hour is nigh for our biannual ritual of packing ourselves into theaters and watching the ultra-caffeinated exploits of whichever Marvel superheroes we're obligated to obsess over this time. Punishment for non-compliance is harsh; your Facebook feed will be clogged with posts about a topic to which you are indifferent, the modern definition of social pariah. This time, it's Guardians of the Galaxy, a second-tier Marvel property whose refreshingly saucy first film, released in 2014, earned $773 million worldwide. »

James Gunn Planning Guardians of the Galaxy 4 with New Team of Heroes

27 April 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In this cinematic climate, where release dates are staked out years ahead of time, it's easy to get ahead of ourselves, especially when it comes to Marvel movies. For example, James Gunn recently confirmed that he will come back to both write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3, while fans await the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, arriving in theaters May 5. While Guardians 3 is still a long ways off, the filmmaker recently teased that if a Guardians 4 were to happen, it would feature a much different team.

As of now, all we know is that Guardians 3 will be part of the Marvel Phase 4 lineup, but if a Guardians 4 were to happen, that may be held off until Phase 5. It's possible that Guardians 4, which still has not been confirmed by Marvel yet, may debut late in Phase 4, but that all depends on how many movies Marvel is planning »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2: post-credits explained

27 April 2017 8:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James Hunt Apr 27, 2017

With spoilers, we explain the assorted end credits scenes of Guardians Of The Galaxy 2...

Like most Marvel movies, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 offers a reward for those who sit through the credits, although unlike other movies it’s really dialled up to 11. You can see not one, not two, but five separate scenes. But what do they spell out for the future of the Guardians and the McU as a whole? If you want to know, keep reading.

Spoilers lie ahead...

Post-Credits 1

Kraglin (played by Sean Gunn, who also does Rocket’s on-set performance) wears Yondu’s fin, whistling in an attempt to control Yondu’s lethal arrow. After some tentative movements, the arrow flies around the corner and impales Drax in the neck. He screams a lot, and Kraglin sneaks off.

What does it mean?

We suspect this one’s just here for the laughs. »

Spoilers: And the post-credit scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are…

Warning: Obvious Spoilers Ahead Including Plot Points From The Movie…

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits cinemas this coming weekend, but Flickering Myth were lucky enough to see it in person last night in London’s Hammersmith Apollo. Unlike most screenings, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was set up like an actual gig, promoting it as a ‘one night only’ event with merchandise tables and a live DJ encouraging people to dance to the tunes from both films. It was different, I’ll give it that.

But you’re not here for that, you’re here for the Five post-credit stingers. Interestingly, only one of them teased an upcoming film; the already announced Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Preview Video Goes On Set with Star-Lord

24 April 2017 9:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel Studios has released a new behind-the-scenes video for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, that features new footage and interviews with the stars and director James Gunn. The video opens with Chris Pratt's admission that he does all of his own stunts, which one crew member seemed to find quite hilarious. James Gunn also reveals that the "primary thing" with this movie is about getting to know all of these Guardians characters in a "deeper way." Dave Bautista also adds that fans get to know Drax more and that he has more "witty dialogue" in this sequel.

This video, which debuted on the Marvel Studios Twitter account, also features director James Gunn confirming that there are three new Guardians who are featured in this movie, Yondu (Michael Rooker), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff). While these details don't come as much of a surprise to fans who have been following the movie, »

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Post-Credits Scenes: What They Are and What They Mean For the McU

24 April 2017 4:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe didn’t invent the post-credits scene, but the super-powered superhero franchise has taken the concept to wild new ends, using them — and there always seem to be plenty of them — to hint at storylines to come, introduce new characters and have a little fun while doing it.

James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” goes all in on post-credits scenes, and boasts not just one, not even three, but five extra scenes that add both fun and a generous dose of groundwork-laying to the expanding franchise.  Here’s what you can expect to see after the credits roll (and some hints as to what it could mean for the series).
