Director James Gunn is easily one of the most transparent filmmakers around, often taking to social media for impromptu Q&A sessions with his fans. Earlier this week, while stuck in traffic on his way home, the filmmaker took to Facebook to kill some time with another Q&A, where he revealed some interesting details about Guardians of the Galaxy 2. According to the filmmaker, Dave Bautista's Drax the Destroyer is the funniest character in the entire sequel.
During this Facebook Q&A, a fan asked the filmmaker what was the funniest thing Dave Bautista did on the set. The filmmaker responded by stating that everything the actor does is funny, revealing that Bradley Cooper compared his work in Guardians 2 with a comedy classic. Here's what the director had to say about Dave Bautista below.
"Everything is funny. He's the funniest character in Vol 2. Bradley Cooper just saw the movie and talked about how he's like (Zach Galifianakis) in The Hangover (in that he kills every line he has)."
The filmmaker also revealed during the Q&A that he worked on the new trailer yesterday, but he wouldn't state when it would be released. The first footage was shown to fans during Marvel's Hall H presentation at Comic-Con, with the first official trailer debuting last month. It's possible that the second trailer could be released during the Super Bowl next year, but that has not been confirmed.
Actress Karen Gillan, who reprises her role as Nebula in Guardians 2, revealed this week that reshoots are under way, but it hasn't been confirmed how long these reshoots will last, or what other cast members are present for the additional photography. Marvel has set a May 5, 2017 release date for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which kicks off the summer movie season next year. Hopefully we'll find out soon when the second trailer for Guardians 2 will be released.
