SDCC14: Guardians of the Galaxy Set for Sequel!!

By Muuka Muyumba

On Saturday, the obvious was confirmed: Guardians of the Galaxy will return to the screen on July 28, 2o17 (even though we haven’t seen the premiere of the original film!). James Gunn is reportedly going to write and direct the film with the whole cast returning aside from those who may have met their demise (I haven’t seen this film, so this is not a spoiler).

Gunn and Starlord, Chris Pratt, were beamed into the end of the Avengers: Age of Ultron panel to say hello and to announce the news. The pair were still in London after the UK premiere of the film. Currently, despite not having been released, Guardians is currently at 100% (after only 25 reviews).  Those who have seen the previous film would suggest that this announcement was a no-brainer because of the quality of the film, but this seems like a far-cry from the puzzled excitement and many questions voiced when Guardians was announced at Comic-Con in 2012.

Another question to consider if whether this release date may have been sooner if not for the recent revelation of Zoe Saldana‘s pregnancy. On the other hand, Marvel is positioning Guardians as “the Other Avengers” and could be following an every-3-year slate plan for Guardians. Other than that, Guardians is now slated in for a big role in Phase 3 that is likely to see it directly tie into Avengers: Age of Ultron.
