Production for the sequel to 2014’s “Guardian of the Galaxy”, simply titled, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2“, is well underway so you know what that means – excitement is certainly brewing!
In February this year, it was announced that principal photography for the Marvel film had begun at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.
Along with the announcement, the studio also confirmed that the movie will see a returning cast of Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn, and Glenn Close, as well as introduce new cast members such as Canadian actress Pom Klementeiff (of “Oldboy” fame”), Elizabeth Debicki (of “The Great Gatsby” game), Chris Sullivan (of “The Knick” fame), and legendary American actor Kurt Russell, just to name a few.
And now, we’re finally getting a sneak peek at “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” via the first new concept art!
First revealed by EW, the poster features “Guardians of the Galaxy” favourites Drax, Groot, Yondu, Star-Lord, Rocket, Nebula, and Gamora. Additionally, it includes Mantis (played by Pom Klementeiff), the newest addition to the “Guardians of the Galaxy” squad.
It’s also important to note that Groot is in there in his “baby” form, so fans can expect a very different version of Groot from the original 2014 film.
In fact, in speaking about baby Groot, executive producer Jonathan Schwartz told EW, “He doesn’t have the wisdom and experience of that Groot. He’s a younger Groot and a more rambunctious Groot. The question is, is he the same Groot, just smaller? Or is he a different Groot that’s sprung up from the seed of the first Groot?”
We know we’re not the only ones excited to find out what else in store for us! To quote director James Gunn, stay tuned for San Diego Comic-Con announcements next week!
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is slated to hit US theatres on 5th May 2017.
