With just a few days until the sequel to the amazing Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) comes out, news has already hit that writer and director James Gunn will indeed be returning to make the third installment.
Anyone who saw the first film will know that its great mix of comic book mayhem, mixed with its incredible soundtrack and hilarity, will be excited about the follow up, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which hits cinemas on April 27.
This time we have the full Guardian line up, set a couple of months after the events of the first, with Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and even Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) on board the rebuilt Milano. We already know that we are bound to meet Ego the Human Planet (Kurt Russell) who it turns out will be Star Lord’s dad?
We will also get a glimpse at Mantis, Yondu and Nebula as well as a cameo from Rocky Balboa himself Sylvester Stallone.
Now, whilst the first film’s soundtrack was packed with nostalgia and funk, Awesome Mix Vol 2’s tracklist has already come out. Make of it what you will, but it is harder to be excited about it when you don’t know how it fits into the film…and Hooked on a Feeling isn’t on it.
