“Hooked on a feeling!” Are you ready for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2? Just announced on Wednesday, principal photography for the film began.
Over at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, the gang is back again for the film’s sequel. Stars such as Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan and Sean Gunn return to take on another adventure. A few new cast mates have also been announced, including Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy originally made $770 million worldwide. In addition, the film is also recognized as “the most successful debut film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” Adding a second film to the franchise only made sense.
If you were a fan of the film’s original soundtrack, Vol. 2 will also bring about “Awesome Mixtape #2.”
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set for a May 5, 2017, release. Stay tuned for more info!
