Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 adds Steve Agee

2 February 2016 1:34 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Steve Agee has been added to the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, according to a recent episode of Doug Loves Movies.

During the February 1st episode of the podcast, host Doug Benson was talking to guest Scoot McNairy (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), who he originally had gotten in contact with thanks to Agee, a mutual friend of theirs. When explaining why Agee wasn’t able to be on the show, Benson said, “… [Steve] just found out because he’s in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he has to shoot that bullshit instead of being here with us today.”

Before 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy was released, Agee was rumored to be in the cast of the film, but director James Gunn eventually cleared things up and confirmed that he would not appear. Obviously, the two friends will now be working together on the sequel. »

Though nobody is in costume just yet, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn has posted a couple of behind-the-scenes snaps from the Marvel sequel’s rehearsal room.

Above you can get a look at Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Chris Pratt (Star Lord), Dave Bautista (Drax), Gunn himself and finally, his brother Sean Gunn, who is standing in for Rocket while Bradley Cooper will once again provide the volatile Racoon’s voice in the actual movie. There’s also an image of a grumpy-looking Michael Rooker, who will returns as the blue-skinned leader of the Ravagers, Yondu.

First Behind-The-Scenes Photos From Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2!

2 February 2016 3:24 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

James Gunn

James Gunn, who seemingly has an addiction to social media – and we love him for that – has shared some behind-the-scenes pics now that rehearsals are getting underway for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. Absent, of course, are Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper, as they merely provide the voices for Groot and Rocket respectively. James Gunn’s brother Sean provides all the motion capture stuff, and you can see him in the images below.

James Gunn / Facebook

What was awesome about the first Guardians movie was how easy the chemistry was between the titular heroes. They clearly all get along off-screen as well, and the enthusiasm is infectious. That said, I do think it’s a shame that Cooper and Diesel don’t turn up on set to do their own mo-cap work; but then I suppose that means Marvel would probably have to pay them more (and »

30 January 2016 12:17 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 moving quickly towards production, having held a table read and rehearsals this past week, director James Gunn has been holding an impromptu Q&A with fans on Twitter.

The talking point is Gunn’s announcement that the roles of Star-Lord’s father and the main villain(s) have been cast:

Yes. https://t.co/PSGfv90Ofr

James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 29, 2016

As for the identity of Star-Lord’s father, Gunn continues to give very little away, save for the fact that it won’t be J’son of Spartax.

Won’t get into his name but he’s not the same character as in the comics. https://t.co/BEJ9RpQufa

James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 29, 2016

As yet, there’s been no word on which actors might have nabbed these roles, although Kurt Russell has confirmed that he’s had talks with Marvel following rumours »

James Gunn Posts Update From Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Pre-Production; Full Cast Announcement Imminent

27 January 2016 8:25 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel’s space-faring sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is teetering on the edge of entering production, and recently director James Gunn posted an update from the film’s pre-production phase.

Taken shortly after a table read of the now finished screenplay – post-credits sting and all – the passionate filmmaker was full of praises when he posted the update via Facebook, and while it doesn’t necessarily reveal anything that we didn’t know already, word is that both Gunn and Marvel are set to unveil the full cast list sooner rather than later.

More News From The Web

Of course, it’s a forgone conclusion that the titular ragtag group will all make a return – namely Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper – along with Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan and newcomer Pom Klementieff. While we wait with bated breath, here’s the update per Gunn’s official, »

James Gunn has taken to Facebook to reveal that the table read for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 took place earlier today, with the actor posting an image poking fun at star Chris Pratt

Gunn shared the above with the comment: “Table read for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was this morning. Oh my gosh, it was the most fun I’ve ever had watching a table read, and just as much fun seeing everyone together again. However someone spelled out star’s name wrong so I had to correct it for him.”

So, it seems pretty safe to assume that the cast all now know the identity of Star-Lord’s father…

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Another rumor report from Geek.com suggests that Yondu (Michael Rooker), Mantis (likely Pom Klementieff) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) might well serve as three new members of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" team in the upcoming second outing. No confirmation or denials at this point.

Wonder Woman

Tom Holkenberg (aka. composer Junkie Xl) has shot down reports that he is scoring the upcoming "Wonder Woman" movie. The report began after Junkie Xl made a Facebook post congratulating Gal Gadot's upcoming film version of the character joining the ranks of some great cinematic female heroes in the films he has previously worked on as composer.

While he may not be doing "Wonder Woman," Junkie Xl and composer Hans Zimmer are going to have a big hand in the sound of the DC cinematic universe having composed the "Man of Steel" music and the score for »

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 May Add These Three Characters To The Team

22 January 2016 4:40 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Stard-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, and Rocket. Those are the Guardians of the Galaxy to most people, but as hardcore comics fans will tell you, they’re not the only ones who’ve been on the team. The Guardians have gone through different incarnations on the printed page, and more recent additions have included other Earth heroes like Iron Man and The Thing. While moviegoers will still see the above five as the main characters in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it’s been known for a while that the team will add some new members, and we may finally know who they are. According to a report from Geek.com, the Guardians will add Yondu, Nebula, and Mantis to their ranks in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It’s been confirmed that Michael Rooker and Karen Gillan will reprise Yondu and Nebula, respectively, while »
