Just days after we reported that Baby Groot is getting its own Marvel comic book series, we have new international artwork featuring the adorable character from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The artwork appears to originate in a Japanese magazine, but we're not entirely sure at this point. Still this artwork gives us one of the best looks yet at the fan-favorite character Baby Groot
This artwork, which was sent to director James Gunn on Twitter, comes just days after reports surfaced that this superhero sequel scored a rare and possibly unprecedented perfect score of 100 during a recent test screening. Marvel holds what they call "friends and family screenings." While the testing pool is said to be "larger than one might think," it is also done this way to prevent any spoilers or footage from the screening from leaking. Marvel has employed this process since the first Iron Man back in 2008.

Even though we have a few months left to wait until Guardians of the Galaxy 2 hits theaters, the sequel is still riding a wave of positive buzz following the Super Bowl trailer that was voted most favorite of the big game movie spots. Even with the TV spot and the previous trailers, there is still a lot yet to be revealed about this sequel. But director James Gunn just made a big claim that will get fans excited. During a recent Twitter Q&A, the filmmaker revealed that the opening credit sequence for this sequel will be even "cooler" than the original Guardians of the Galaxy.
Over the weekend, James Gunn took some time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions from fans on Twitter. One fan dubbed "@alancqstark" asked the director if his superhero sequel will have an opening sequence that is as cool as »
Since the unveiling of the film’s Super Bowl promo, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 floodgates are now officially open, and not a day goes by without some intriguing morsel of information (or promo!) finding its way online.
The latest deluge of info hails from Screen Rant, who recently conducted an interview with Marvel boss Kevin Feige about all things Guardians 2. And so, after skating around the sequel’s narrative arc, Feige was quizzed about the ways in which Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Ayesha (Elizabeth Decki) factor into the story at hand. Indeed, thanks to the recent onslaught of TV spots, fans have been acquainted with the latter character and her striking visual appearance, and it seems she’ll be causing all sorts of headaches for Star-Lord and the gang in a few months’ time.

Marvel Entertainment has released a new TV spot for the highly-anticipated superhero sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which kicks off the summer movie season in theaters on May 5. This 30-second spot features bits and pieces of new footage showing this beloved superhero team getting back together to save the galaxy once again, since no one else seems to be up to the task at hand. It remains to be seen whether or not another full trailer will debut between now and the May 5 release date.

With a May release just around the corner, it’s time for Marvel to high-kick their marketing build-up, and that’s the reason for today’s newest TV spot, which can be found above. Admittedly, this 30-second teaser isn’t too different than the one we saw during the Super Bowl last Sunday, but if you need an extra dose of Guardians of the Galaxy-fueled silliness, the footage delivers.
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillian and Michael Rooker all return for this newest installment, which finds the unlikely heroes unwittingly saving the universe from almost-endless mayhem and chaos. Expect another pop-heavy soundtrack and lots of quips, both of which are found in »

Following last weekend’s Super Bowl promo [watch it here], Marvel Studios has now unveiled another TV spot for the hugely-anticipated sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which offers up even more new footage from the film. Check it out here…

The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage.

In my last column I talked about my expectations for the Fan2Sea comic-con cruise, how it fulfilled them, and some of the things I generally loved about being at a con on a cruise ship and about the way in which Fan2Sea pulled off its maiden voyage (haha!).
Today, it’s all about the details. Want to know what your daily experience will be like if (when! I hope!) Fan2Sea happens again and you decide to go? Well, I can’t say, but I can tell you what mine was like! So here goes:
Day 1 was pleasantly low-key from the start. Because luggage was still being delivered to staterooms, I spent the first bit of ship time chilling in one of the main areas overlooking the bar, with my lovely roommate, ComicMix assistant editor Adriane Nash, and with PR guru (and former Comic Book Resources writer/editor) Steve Sunu. »

To begin with, let's explain a "test screening" viewing. Basically, movie studios will gather friends, neighbors, people off the street, and random people they make think would not have any interest in a film they are showing. They could pick people from the industry, grocery stores outside of Los Angeles, malls, or simply innocent bystanders off the street. Marvel goes about it in a different route, which I completely do not blame them for as secrecy is needed, where they only recruit family members and friends. Marvel still does a huge testing process to get a variance of movie opinions, so the scales may slightly balance and normally this does not make a difference as the results are still mixed. They all base the score on a 100 scale.
Here are a few examples, mainly of Oscar winning movies:

It’s not like we need anymore proof that Marvel has another mega hit on their hands with James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The first film was an absolute home run for the studio and with everyone returning for more, chances were always pretty good that the sequel could match its predecessor. Now, as the marketing campaign continues on in full swing, it’s looking very possible that Vol. 2 may actually surpass the original.
After an explosive Super Bowl spot the other week, which was one of the best previews shown during the big game, we’re now getting more reassurance of just how awesome this movie is going to be. It comes in the form of reactions to test screenings, which have been taking place internally at Marvel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gunn’s sequel is scoring 100, which is apparently extremely rare.

Fox’s 24: Legacy christened its regular Monday time slot with 6.2 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo rating (per finals), down of course from its apres-Super Bowl showcase (17.6 mil/6.1) but on par with where 24: Live Another Day left off (6.5 mil/1.7, in July of 2014) and improving on Gotham‘s winter finale (3.5 mil/1.1).
Versus Lad‘s own launch (in May 2014), Legacy was down 23 and 42 percent. A 1.5 rating would rank it as Fox’s No. 4 series (behind Empire, Simpsons and Lethal Weapon).

If you thought that 24: Legacy was borderline restrained with its post-Super Bowl premiere — only raising our collective eyebrow with the almost-routine tasering of a CTU boss — Episode 2 was here to reassure you that “ridiculous” will still be in abundant supply.

It’s shaping up to be a very good week for fans of James Gunn’s band of intergalactic A-holes, as on the heels of last night’s brilliant Super Bowl spot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we now have a batch of Bts images and a flood of new details courtesy of several set visit reports.
One new addition to the cast that’s largely remained under the radar up until now is the gold-skinned Ayesha, who will be played by Elizabeth Debicki. We know that she’ll be a villain and will be based on the Marvel Comics character with more names than Daenerys from Game of Thrones, but up to this point, we weren’t really sure how she’d factor into the plot of the Marvel sequel.
Now, Kevin Feige has spilled some intriguing new details on Ayesha, while also revealing the reason the »

It’s a good time to be a Marvel fan. The company has three projects currently in production – Avengers: Infinity War, its sequel and Black Panther – and three movies set to release this year. Those are, of course, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok. First up though is James Gunn’s space-set adventure, and after last night’s exhilarating Super Bowl spot, I think it’s safe to say that it’s many people’s most anticipated film of 2017.
You don’t often see a sequel surpass its predecessor, but in the case of this particular one, that’s exactly what looks set to happen. It’s still too early to say for sure, of course, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 appears to be like a wild ride, one that should have no trouble being, at the very least, »

Disney-Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” Super Bowl ad was the most popular trailer of the game. The commercial was out of this world, generating 47,800 new conversations, according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service.
The new trailer for the “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel dropped Sunday afternoon right before the Super Bowl Li national anthem. It included Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Baby Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), Yondu (Michael Rooker), Nebula (Karen Gillan), and newcomer Mantis (Pom Klementieff).
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” opens May 5. The original grossed a massive $773 worldwide in 2014.
Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” generated 25,200 new conversations. The first look at the fifth “Pirates” film — which opens on Memorial Day weekend — featured Johnny Depp returning as Jack Sparrow, a ghostly pirate ship, and the dead walking on water. »

Marvel went all in on Guardians of the Galaxy during the Super Bowl. Even though the studio is releasing three movies this year, including Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel decided to give their ad time to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and I don't think any fans are complaining. In addition to the new spot that aired during the Super Bowl, a brand new poster for the highly-anticipated sequel has also made its way online.
The poster was released not long after Marvel Studios released an extended version of their Super Bowl commercial online, which clocked in at just under a minute long, but had a ton of new footage to offer. The poster itself is playing on the popularity of Awesome Mix Vol. 1, the soundtrack to the first movie. In this poster, all of the central characters in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are given their very own mixtapes, »
Disney released its extended “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 ” trailer during the Super Bowl on Sunday, and from the looks of the 60-second spot, the past two and a half years have been well worth the wait. Director James Gunn co-wrote the script for the sequel, which he also did for the 2014 film that took in $333 million domestically and $773 million worldwide.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” sees the team from the first film continue their misadventures in space as they try to unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage. The film is based on the Marvel comic book by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning and hits theaters on May 5. Stan Lee also received a co-writing credit for the characters.

Earlier this evening, Marvel unveiled the extended Super Bowl TV spot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and now a new batch of images have been released to go along with it. While a few are essentially screengrabs from the exciting preview, they do show off a fresh look at the heroes and, perhaps more interestingly, one of the sequel’s villains.
We’re obviously talking about Elizabeth Debicki’s Ayesha, a character clearly not impressed by Star-Lord and company. Aside from the fact that she rules over a race known as the Sovereigns, we don’t actually know what to expect from her, but visually, she’s very distinctive thanks to her golden skin (something which should make Adam Warlock’s expected debut in Avengers: Infinity War a little easier for non-comic book fans to swallow).

"Just who in the hell do you think you are?" You know who they are! Marvel has launched an extended, 60-second Super Bowl TV spot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn's follow-up to the hugely successful Marvel sci-fi superhero movie from 2014. There's some more great footage in this to top off what we've seen in the first trailer, which was already quite awesome. Chris Pratt returns as Star-Lord, with a cast including Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Chris Sullivan, Elizabeth Debicki, Kurt Russell, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Nathan Fillion, Glenn Close, as well as Pom Klementieff; plus Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon. This seems like it's going to be so much fun.

A new, action-packed look at the Marvel sequel (out May 5) arrived online Sunday, ahead of kickoff for the big game.
Last spring, your writer had a hugely entertaining, but hugely uninformative, chat with impish actor Michael Rooker in the parking lot of the Atlanta studio complex where he was reprising his role of the blue-skinned alien Yondu in Guardians Vol. 2. How uninformative was the conversation? Well, let’s just say that the closest Rooker came to letting slip any kind »
