We can all settle down for about 5 minutes, as both DC and Marvel have now revealed there full plans until the end of this decade. And suffice it to say, there are a lot of superheroe movies coming our way, featuring old faces and new. One of the most anticipated upcoming releases is Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which was given a new release date during Marvel's special live event held earlier today in Hollywood.
A little over four months ago, Guardians of the Galaxy was considered a very risky move by the studio. It was an untested franchise with characters that were unfamiliar to most of the American populace. Now, it is the biggest movie of the year and a beloved fan favorite. Audience can't wait to return to this world, and their wait just got a little bit shorter.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was originally supposed to arrive on July 28, 2017, but it will now be the officially movie that starts this particular summer, with the recently titled Thor: Ragnarok taking it's old release date. 2017 will be the first year that Marvel releases three movies in a row, with Black Panther to follow these two sequels in November.
James Gunn will be back to direct, along with his full original cast including Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon. While no story details have been revealed, it has been teased that new members will be added to the team.
