In the last week or so, director James Gunn confirmed that he’d be returning for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 if the film was to get the green light. Well, the film is happening… and it even has a release date.
Just as last week brought that news on Gunn, Marvel Studios also confirmed a whole bunch of release dates for unconfirmed movies. Well, at yesterday’s Comic-Con panel, Marvel confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be released on 28th July, 2017. Gunn then took to his Twitter account to confirm that he’ll be writing and directing. Previous speculation claims that the Guardians sequel will centre on the Guardians team trying to get the Hulk back to earth, leading into The Avengers 3.
Before any of that, Guardians of the Galaxy gets a UK release on Thursday, with the global release following on Friday. To say I’m excited about this film is a massive understatement. Expect a review towards the end of the week.
