The casting for “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” has begun and director James Gunn hinted that his favorite superhero character will be joining the sequel. This has led fans to speculate that one of the Avengers will be joining Star-Lord, Raccoon, Gamora, Groot and Drax in battling against a new villain. Is the Hulk joining the Guardians? Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“Guardians of the Galaxy 2” will see the introduction of several new characters, as the Guardians are set to battle against a new enemy. While not much has been revealed about the upcoming sequel, which is set to be released in 2017, director James Gunn recently hinted that his favorite superhero will be appearing in the “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel.
On March 1, Gunn replied to a fan who asked him which favorite superhero does he wish to bring to the big screen via Twitter. Gunn wrote: “And will do so in GotG2!”
While Gunn’s reply did not reveal as much details on which superhero he was referring to in his tweet, several fans began theorizing that one of the Avengers will be joining the Guardians in the sequel. The Hulk has been one of the fan-favorite characters in the Avengers to join “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” along with the fact that Mark Ruffalo’s character was previously rumored to appear in the sequel.
Inquisitr pointed out that his character’s addition may be highly unlikely especially with the ending of “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which showed Hulk leaving the team and disappearing from the map. The outlet also cited a previous interview wherein the director dismissed crossover rumors between “Hulk” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
Meanwhile, Screen Rant reported that the sequel seems to be adding a new female character to join the team, as Gunn said that he needs two new actresses in the sequel.
“Guardians of the Galaxy 2” premieres on May 5, 2017. Chris Pratt will be back as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as voice for Rocket and Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer.
