To be or not to be like Dave Bautista, that is not a question. As director James Gunn teased on Facebook, when the other actors are messing up, he just points to Dave “as an example of good acting.” And well he should; nothing goes over that guy’s head.
Along with releasing a few behind the scenes photos Gunn took to Twitter, answering a boatload of questions, including whether Star-Lord’s father has indeed been cast…
When will the announcement come?
I’m assured that it will be very soon. https://t.co/A0hqRKf7AK— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 27, 2016
and what the Guardians sequel is officially titled…
I did offer the option: Guardians of the Galaxy: Another Movie with Them https://t.co/ZdVKhPabc1— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 29, 2016
no, not that! This:
The official name of the film is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. https://t.co/rfRaYgQ6So— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 29, 2016
I called it Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 because Guardians of the Galaxy: Dusk of the Rising Shadows is a paragraph.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 29, 2016
Vol. 2 had its first table read about a week ago,
The director also confirmed the great amount of freedom Marvel gives him…
As I’ve said a million times before Marvel hasn’t given me a single non-budgetary restriction on Vol. 2. I love them https://t.co/4F2n2ySHOO— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 29, 2016
and Gunn doesn’t put up with anybody’s bullshit; not even Yondu’s.
Yondu looks pissed.
Dude, you’re Yondu!
That’s better. All for one and one for all…and all that.
We’ll be back with the cast announcements as soon as they’re released; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 begins shooting this month, and slams into theaters May 5, 2017.
