Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn posted to Facebook yesterday, revealing the title of the next movie in the Marvel Comics franchise. Referencing Peter Quill’s mix tapes Awesome Mix: Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, the next adventure with our favourite space misfits will be called “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2″.
“Yes, the official title of the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Kevin Feige recently let the title slip while doing Ant-Man press, which I’m really happy about because God knows I’ve let more than one thing slip accidentally while chattering away on this FB page. Also, hats off to some intrepid fans who figured out the title a couple of days after I posted the cover page. More than one person guessed “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” – I wanted so badly to give you props at the time, but knew I had to wait… For Kevin to mess up. Haha.
PS: ANT-MAN PREMIERE TONIGHT AND I AM STOKED!”
Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 hits theatres May 5th, 2017, and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper.
