Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Announced. James Gunn Will Write and Direct.

Guardians of the Galaxy

UPDATE: Marvel has just announced a July 28, 2017 release date for Guardians 2.

If you haven’t been watching Rotten Tomatoes, the early reviews of Guardians of the Galaxy have it at 100%, which should put to rest any remaining fears after the 17 minute preview released earlier this month (click here to read my review of that).  Now we can fill in one of those mystery Marvel release dates, because Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is already in the works with James Gunn returning both to write and direct.  The news came from the co-writer of the first movie, Nicole Perlman.

“They started to figure it out pretty quick when they started getting the reactions from the audience; it was a very positive reaction. Of course they would want to make a sequel as long as it does well and  people are excited about it, they’ll wanna do a sequel. So, it’s going to happen… James will be directing Guardians 2, so he would also be writing Guardians 2.” 

One more week, people.  We just have to wait one more week.  Guardians 1 opens on August 1, 2014.
