'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Begins Shooting in the US February 2016

April 6, 2015

James Gunn

Unfortunately, the release of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is still over two years away with Marvel Studios set to put the film in theaters on May 5th, 2017. And therefore, it'll still be awhile before the sequel to last year's satisfying sci-fi adventure goes in front of cameras. But the good news is that we at least know when the film will begin production. Speaking withΒ Periscope (via Superhero Hype), director James Gunn revealed that the sequel will star filming in February of 2016 in Pinewood Studios in Atlanta Georgia (so not the same Pinewood Studios that Star Wars: The Force Awakens shot in last year). That's some good news!

Gunn also teased, "Early storyboard for #GotG2. What do you think of the direction?" on Facebook:

Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel has a good working relationship with Pinewood since they shot Ant-Man there, and the forthcoming Captain America: Civil War will be shot there too. So far, we don't know what the sequel will be about, but it has been said that we'll dig deeper into the backstories of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Drax (Dave Bautista). In addition, Michael Rooker will be back as Yondu, and there's likely an element having to deal with Star-Lord's father, as teased in the first film. It'll be awhile before we get anymore details, so just stay tuned.

I realy enjoyed number one, and I was a big skeptic about it! Did see the trailer in the cinema and thought:mwah a fox with a gun??? But now I know better, and it was one of those movies I found perfect and 100% great!

James Gunn trying so desperately to stay relevant and in the lime light. It's all about Age of Ultron right now. Step aside, son.

Hulk Smash on Apr 7, 2015


It is all about Ultron....but we can still look forward to Guardians 2....

What the hell kind of thing is this to say? Age of Ultron is, if you ask me, taking a back seat to furious 7 this month and mad max and star wars hype wise.

I'm with you there dude. As much as I'm looking forward to seeing AoU, Furious 7 and Mad Max is getting a lot of attention right now. So much that AoU ain't getting as much as expected. AoU is trying too hard with all the trailers and tv spots if you ask me... No problem, AoU will do great no matter what...

Enola on Apr 7, 2015


He had the #1 opening in August of all time (#3 grossing film last year), and he's trying to "stay relevant"? That seems like a bit of a stretch.

Guardians is actually the best Marvel film since Iron Man. And way better than Avengers.

I think they complemented each other nicely. Never lose site of the humour and just good popcorn entertainment.

Jon Odishaw on Apr 7, 2015


That's true. I'm not saying Avengers doesn't entertain, just saying that Guardians of The Galaxy is a better quality film than Avengers. Reasons: you actually see story arcs of each character, Gunn didn't had 5 movies to explain who these guys were, he just jumped and didn't even based his storyline in an previous story from the comicbooks. And, the plot of both movies are basically the same: Bad guy (serving Thanos) wants to conquer a planet with a thing that belongs to Thanos (cube or stone) and gets snapped by a bunch of dudes which need to work together and fight a lot between them.

Thought Guardians was one of the best 'superhero' movie I've ever seen. Look forward to part 2.
