Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

They're backkkk!! Production is now underway on the Marvel Studios sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with James Gunn directing once again. Shooting has started and Gunn states, "I couldn't be more stoked." Gunn dropped the first official photo on social media, not actually a still from the movie, but rather an on-set shot showing the whole gang back together again. Chris Pratt returns as Star-Lord, joined by Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, plus Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper voicing Groot and Rocket Raccoon. Everyone's favorite intergalactic heroes can be seen silhouetted in the image below, with more to come as they continue filming over the next few months. Marvel is aiming for release in 2017.

Gunn's message on Facebook adds some details to this sequel: "My favorite movie as a small child was The Strongest Man in the World, so I'm glad to announce that, yes, Kurt Russell has joined our cast and, yes, he is more awesome a dude than I ever could have imagined. The last few days around here with him and our other new cast members, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Chris Sullivan, have been some of the best of my life. I never thought anyone was missing from our island of misfit toys, but now that these folks are here there feels like there was. We'll have more surprises for you in the coming months. But, for now, this will have to do." Arriving in theaters May of 2017. Stay tuned for more from Gunn and Marvel.

    This is probably the only comicbook based movie I'm still hyped for. I don't care pretty much for any other else.
