Sylvester Stallone Eyed for More Marvel Films

Sylvester Stallone Eyed for More Marvel Films

The highly-anticipated Vol. 2 hits cinemas on April 28 and Gunn says he is excited for fans to find out what Baby Groot and the gang get up to next. Star Lord wasn't exactly a household name, and neither was Chris Pratt.

Before Sean Gunn blasts into theaters next week, he surprised fans at an early screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that included a launch party for its anticipated soundtrack, Awesome Mix Vol. 2.

"I'm helping to decide what projects we'll be pursuing outside of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3" and what the next cosmic characters we will focus on". You may have seen a YouTube video recently calling out Marvel films for their lack of use of color grading.

"So many sequels are not good", Gunn said. "And when I saw the movie, I immediately started getting it, and I immediately wanted to do it".

Marvel, which considers Groot to be "the galaxy's top tree", joined with the Disney Conservation Fund and the Nature Conservancy to plant a tree every time the hashtag #GrootDanceBomb shows up on social media.

From the inspired opening dance number to the - count 'em - five end credit sequences, Volume 2 of the Guardians is a rollicking, hilarious and surprisingly emotional blockbusting experience.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters May 5, with Avengers: Infinity War releasing almost one year later on May 4, 2019. I think that there could be a Guardians Vol. 4, but it would not be the same. Along the way they encounter Ego (Kurt Russell), whose connection to Quill splits up the core group and invites paranoia and trouble in from all sides. I love Christopher Nolan's brooding "The Dark Knight" and M. Night Shyamalan's pensive, deliberately-paced "Unbreakable".

Why did Trump want a private conversation with Comey?
And he directed a House oversight inquiry into Clinton's email practices and use of a private computer server. Not to be forgotten, the Senate Judiciary Committee went the furthest with its request for information.

"(Chris) was the first person I told it to, that's for sure.

Gunn funneled this into his filmmaking, because of the media by which he was influenced, saying "I've grown up with some art some movies by people like everybody from David Cronenberg to Steven Spielberg, movies where an outcast didn't feel so alone".

Pratt said he related to the story a lot.

This little cobbled-together family is not disbanding yet, either.

Speaking to USA Today, the star said: "The first Groot we saw was a freshman in college".

Nostalgia played a large part in the first movie, with its fetishisation of protagonist Quill's "retro" Walkman and tape collection. But I also think a genuinely fun superhero movie is an accomplishment worth commending, even though James Gunn is so good at it he's begun to make it look almost effortless.
