Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 has finished filming!
Well, at least its safe to say principle photography has wrapped…
The news not only came directly from two of the films key cast members – Karen Gillan who plays Nebula and Dave Bautista AKA Drax The Destroyer, after they took to twitter to let fans know that they had shot their final scenes for the movie, Karen 2 days ago and Dave Bautisa earlier today. Director James Gunn after he Shared a photo across social media, of the wrap present he received from Zoe Saldana AKA Gamora.
Obviously with a movie as effects-heavy as Guardians Vol.2, the actual filming of the project is only half of the battle and it’s safe to say that the CGI teams will be straight into pre-production, building the vast array of ships, characters and landscapes that help paint the story that takes us out of our cinema seats and deep into the furthest reaches of the cosmos. I am sure its all hands on deck as ever right now over at the marvel cinematic universe studios as there will now be a ton of post production work to get done.
Do not fret however, with a rumored San Diago comic con trailer for the movie debuting in late July, we can be hopeful that its not gonna be too long of a wait before we can see some footage of the sequel that us Marvel heads have all been so eagerly awaiting.
Guardians Of The Galaxy vol.2 will see returning cast members including Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen GIllan, Zoe Saldana and Michael Rooker. Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper will also be back to voice the lovable duo Groot and the wise cracking, often bad tempered, Rocket Raccoon.
What I am personally most excited about however are the rumors that two of my all time heroes will also both make appearances in this movie…
Yes that’s right! Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone have both been seen leaving the hotel were cast members of the movie were staying exclusively and stallone was even seen holding what appeared to be a script!
Although this is not much to go on for now, this would be an amazing addition to the Marvel MCU. James Gunn is known for thinking outside the box, I mean c’mon, anybody who has worked with Troma as much as him and sneaks Howard The Duck into a Marvel end credits scene (one of my favorite Marvel characters of all time BTW), really isn’t sticking to the standard way of film-making, and that’s why he is one of the coolest guys to take the reigns of a Marvel movie yet!
Gunn is also a director who has been given more free reign on his projects than most, and casting Kurt as the father of Starlord, and Sly as… Well anyone I don’t really give a shit aslong as he’s in there!! Would be great additions to the franchise, not to mention make the fuckin lifes of retro action fans like myself getting the opportunity to see Tango and Cash re-united on screen once again.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 is scheduled for release in 2017
