Briefly: Well, there you go, the internet has ruined everything again! Not really, but in related news, James Gunn has confirmed that the new title of Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel will be: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. That makes sense, and is pretty much what we all were expecting, especially after the name of the (totally badass) soundtrack was also Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol.1. Gunn recently snapped a photo of the finished script, which he referenced in a tweet while saying "Okay, I'm not being sarcastic, guys. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 IS truly the title." The original scoop he mentions is from Collider, where they nabbed the title in an interview with Kevin Feige. That's all for now.
