"Guardians" Sequel New Logo, Stones Talk

11 February 2016 11:57 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Production officially got underway today on Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" today in Atlanta. To celebrate the kick-off of filming, the movie's director James Gunn has provided fans with a first glimpse of the new logo via the set pic.

The shot also includes a caption suggesting Whitesnake's 1982 hit "Here I Go Again" will be featured on the soundtrack. In a separate Q&A on social media conducted this week, Gunn re-iterated that the new film won't have much to do with Thanos of the "Avengers: Infinity War" saga in this outing:

"As I've said before, Thanos isn't in this movie. I think he's gonna have a little bit to do and say when it comes to a certain wars and infinity. We've got other fish to fry in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2... We're not really so much about the Infinity Stones in Guardians 2. Is that a spoiler? »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 won’t connect to Avengers: Infinity War; Thanos and Infinity Stones will not feature

11 February 2016 4:17 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the movie’s release coming in between parts 1 & 2 of Avengers: Infinity War, it was assumed that James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. would tie into the movie somewhat. There, of course, was always the theory that the final moments of the film would see The Guardians head to Earth and join the battle with Thanos. However, if the director himself is to be believed, The Mad Titan and his Infinity Guantlet will not be featuring in his movie at all.

“Thanos will not appear in Vol. 2. No,” he said in a Facebook Q&A. “As I’ve said before, Thanos isn’t in this movie. I think he’s gonna have a little bit to do and say when it comes to a certain wars and infinity. We’ve got other fish to fry in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. We’re not really so much »

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.

Unfortunately, these images don’t really reveal anything about the film itself, but they’re fun shots that fans will definitely enjoy and they should tide us over until we get something more official.

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 »

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.
