Are you looking forward to more cosmic shenanigans set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2 when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in theaters on May 5 (or May 4 in select theaters)? It was Adam Warlock.
"Absolutely. I would love to be able to", Gunn said. So do yourself a favor, and for the love of Groot, avoid the Vol. 2 soundtrack until after you've seen the actual movie. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, his heavy heart will be explored more thoroughly. "He's one of my favorite characters", Gunn explained.
"This ups the ante for the last one in every way and shape you can imagine", he said at the movie's Los Angeles premiere, comparing it to the first installment. He, however, admitted that he was pressured to meet the expectations when he first joined them for the sequel. Gunn's 2014 original was a game-changer, the little "weirdo" Marvel movie that could despite the fact that most of the world had no idea who the hell the rag-tag group of heroes even were. However, after its release, the film was met with critical and box office acclaim-leading to another surge in profits (it also made it to our Greatest Superhero Stories list).
And while many expected Warlock to make his debut in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has revealed that Warlock nearly had a role in the new sequel, and he will have a major part to play in the future. This time, the storyline will explore family values and also unravel many family truths and mysteries.
"[Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3] will conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond", he wrote.
