Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2's Kurt Russell wowed audiences when he revealed that the younger look he sported in flashback scenes was largely thanks to make-up, not visual effects. However, it took a lot more than some concealer and a wig to make Ego the Living Planet look 30 years younger.
Months after the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we're still talking about the film's five end-credits scenes, some of which could have huge repercussions on the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving ahead.
David Bowie's death last year was heartbreaking. The musician, actor, and icon was a champion of the weird, the queer, and the fantastical. He's been sorely missed. We know James Gunn was a fan, too. Last year we reported that the director eagerly wanted to cast Bowie in the second Guardians of the Galaxy film. Now we finally know who he would have played, and it would have been amazing.
Video: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is coming to home video very soon and with it, a whole new perspective on the making of the film. We've already seen some cool Easter eggs, and now the always-wonderful gag reel is online. Spoiler: These guys had a lot of fun making this movie.
Versions of Adam Warlock's cocoon have appeared in both Guardians of the Galaxy films, and every time I've seen them my skin has crawled, even though the pods are only on the screen for the briefest of moments. Imagine my horror, then, as I gazed upon the high-definition concept art for the monstrosities.
There are few items that have had a larger effect on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy franchise than the Sony Walkman. While its presence in the studio's films is played up largely for laughs and character work, the Walkman and the music held on its cassettes have profoundly shaped the look and feel of the movies.
The internet's favourite fan casting choice, Nathan Fillion, is not in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But that wasn't always the case. Last year, fans caught a glimpse of some very interesting posters of Fillion on the set of the sequel, and now writer-director James Gunn has explained what happened.
After two massive hit films, one might think coming back for a third would be a no-brainer. But that wasn't the case with James Gunn. The writer/director of the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films recently revealed the reason why he almost didn't come back for Vol. 3 — but if you haven't seen Vol. 2 yet, you should probably leave this a mystery for now.
On Thursday, May 4, Hubble dropped a "cute" press release comparing a new image of a galaxy cluster to the Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2. It was a timely yet mega-dad corny way to make the image of the galaxy cluster Abell 370 seem relevant. While there's literally no connection between the James Gunn movie and the galaxy cluster, located roughly four billion light years away, that didn't stop literally everyone from trying to make this A Thing.
James Gunn is already on to teasing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The first story details for Dwayne Johnson's Rampage movie are here. There's a very ridiculous amount of speculation about a villain for the Batman movie. Plus, behind the scenes on Once Upon a Time's musical episode, and a very crunch clip from Doctor Who. Behold, spoilers!
Nostalgia is a huge part of the charm in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. There's the classic pop music, of course, but also the reverence Chris Pratt's character Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, has for the pop culture of his childhood, things the character loved before he was snatched off Earth. This posed a problem in the sequel, which Pratt really wanted to make way, way worse.
