“Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel is undoubtedly the most anticipated sequel of all. Ever since Marvel announced that a sequel to the monstrous hit will be releasing in 2017, fans have been wondering about what the story will be and where it will take them. Reports about the story being focussed on Peter Quill’s parentage and how the second installment will be an emotional one were revealed however one important details was left out. That detail being the sequel’s title. It has now been confirmed by director James Gunn himself and it is nothing but amusing.
According to Collider, who was interviewing Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige on the press day for the studio’s upcoming release “Ant-Man” reported that Mr. Feige was explaining them the shooting schedule for the sequel of “Guardians of the Galaxy” and how without realizing let the title of the movie slip out. The quote from Mr. Feige said, “We start shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in February-March 2016”. When Collider further tried to ask Mr. Feige if he had let the title of the sequel slip, he didn’t really confirm anything. However later when speculations started growing around the fact that the afore mentioned title could be the title of the sequel, director James Gunn took to his official Twitter and Facebook pages to confirm the title. On his Twitter account, James revealed the title is in fact the one Mr. Feige spoke about and it will be visualized as “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”. He even applauded Collider for getting their secret out. On his Facebook page too James wrote the same, however he added that he was really happy that Mr. Feige let the title slip otherwise he himself would have let too many details out about the movie while talking more about it on his Facebook page.
Even though “Guardians of the Galaxy” did not have a “big” movie star’s name attached to it, it fared extremely well at the box office and set the standards high for other superhero movies. “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” will release on May 5th 2017.
